Alison Jablonsky and I Wednesday morning two days before her big boxing match. She’s fighting in The Socal Battle of the Badges venue at Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula. Alison hired me to condition her for the fight. She also does regular CrossFit classes, and of course, boxing. The work is done. I’m going to support her Friday night at 7pm at Pechanga (barring any unforeseen twin appearances). I’m looking forward to seeing Alison light this lady up! – WW
Alison was tired of me screaming and yelling at her during her workouts, so she decided to give me a swift jab to the chin. I feel sorry for her opponent.

37 DAYS UNTIL THE NUTRITION CHALLENGE IS OVER!!!
*ATTN: this Saturday, September 8th, there will only be one (1) CrossFit class. It will be at 9:30am. That means 7:30am & 9am are cancelled. Many of the members are doing the T2T 5k in Corona. For everyone who isn’t, Coach Brett will be holding a normal CrossFit Saturday class at 9:30am
September 8th: Tunnel to Tower Run in Corona. This 5k Run is a patriotic event acknowledging the sacrifices of firefighters, peace officers and our nation’s military service members in the name of Firefighter Stephen Siller who died saving others on 9/11. The proceeds will help build “Smart Homes” which are designed for our severely wounded veterans and also help to send care packages to our troops. Michelle P. is spearheading this event with interested participants to form a team of CrownTown’ers running together.
October 12th: Fitness Wave will be here Friday evening for the follow-up dunk. This date marks the end of the challenge. If you know you can’t make this date, please click on the link and schedule your follow up dunk directly with Fitness Wave ahead of time, as close to this date as possible.
October 13th: NLI “Warrior Soul Series” II – This is a CrossFit competition with three different divisions plus a masters division.
December 1st – or -2nd: Spartan Race. I’m going to do this event on Sunday. It would be cool to have more people from CrownTown join me. You can have teams where they take the top 4 times from each team and rank you against all other teams. Click here for more info. Please let me know before you register so I can create the team and you can join it.
December 8th: NLI “Warrior Soul Series” III – This is a CrossFit competition with three different divisions plus a masters division.
