Sock War

What? Sandia CrossFit has a sock war every Saturday at 2pm? That’s too awesome to be true… but is! Come throw socks at other grown human beings and not be judged for it! Free, 2pm. Saturday. Sandia CrossFit. Check it out on the book of faces (facebook if you will).

Welcome LivingSocialites!

Hola LivingSocial redirects, and welcome to our little bit of the internet! Take a few minutes to look around our site taking particular note of our kid’s link at the top of the page. There you will find an uncharacteristically serious argument for why your children need CrossFit – and what they can expect to get out of it (spoiler: better grades, better mental health, better fitness). If you have any questions about anything, shoot us an e-mail and we’ll get back to you before our coupon disappears. Thanks for checking us out!

We’re big time now

As I mentioned on our facebook page, our contact form recently got attacked by a spam bot. At first I thought about taking the form down for a while but then I really started to enjoy some of the spam. I think the intent of the messages was to have a link to some virus but for some reason the link was never attached. The result was a bunch of random messages from different “people” with poorly spelled, single sentence messages trying to get us to read an article. Since I’m the type of person who loves sharing I’ve included a few of my favorites here.

Sandia CrossFit: giving computer programs epiphanies since 2011!

Never seen a bteter post! ICOCBW

I had to google the acronym ICOCBW – I Could Of Course Be Wrong. I love how “Grizzly” uses this after making such an extremely emphatic and absolute statement. “I have never, ever seen anything as epic as that! Probably.”

Message Body:
Now that’s slutbe! Great to hear from you.

No, these messages are slutbe Brandy! Great to hear from you too!

Anyway, I got a kick out of them and thought I would share. I do have a quick message to whomever is spam bot(t)ing us – it’s honestly hard to tell you to stop. These messages are actually kind of entertaining and surprisingly uplifting. So… yeah, keep on truckin’ I guess.

A picture shouldn’t say any words because they are inanimate and lack vocal cords

Guess what?!?! After repeated insults about our website we have finally added some pictures! This has a lot more to do with us finally locating our camera charger and a lot less to do with the disparaging remarks about our web design, but hey – results!

I’m a really big fan of an overly-simplified home page so I’ve moved the pictures into their own page. You can access them at the link to the right. Shockingly, it’s the one that says pictures. We’ll try to keep them updated every couple of days, barring the loss of our camera charger again.

There are currently only a couple of photos up. This morning we had Jesse and Dylan doing an overhead carry with some pull-ups. I didn’t get any pain face I-just-want-this-to-be-over-before-I-embarrass-myself-by-curling-up-into-a-little-ball-and-crying-myself-unconscious looks on film (like I usually make when working out), but you can see the inside and outside of our facilities from these photos.

The Mesozoic Era was a time-period roughly two hundred and fifty to sixty five million years ago. This era is frequently described as the age of dinosaurs. Dinosaurs were huge reptilian killing machines which are thought to have been wiped out in a mass extinction event occurring sometime at the end of the Cretaceous Period. There is no definite cause to the disappearance of dinosaurs but we at Sandia CrossFit have a theory. Dinosaurs are simply hiding – behind bushes, in your backseat, and around corners. They are waiting patiently until their carefully cultivated crop of food is plump, complacent, and ready for eatin’. Dinosaurs will eat you like little mammal popcorn shrimp.

Now we’re not saying that a dinosaur feast of juicy humans is inevitable. What we’re saying is that you should be ready in case dinosaurs try to eat you. Think of it this way: how will you respond if a Tyrannosaurus jumps out of a dark alley with a knife, fork, and an “I scream for people” bib wrapped around his neck? Will you be too out of shape to do anything other than climb on to his platter and whine about being devoured alive or will you wrestle him to the ground and force carrots into his disproportionately large mouth (dinosaurs hate carrots)?

Don’t get caught being eaten by death-lizards. Come in for a few free sessions.
