We are going to use the Parking Lot to accommodate larger classes with the addition of outside workout stations! This will be available only on:
Saturday’s: 8:00am Gym Class
Sunday’s: 9:00am Gym Class
As Kenny’s blog mentioned yesterday, for the month of July, we’ve made changes to the class schedule for both Zoom and Gym classes. We hope that we can accommodate more peeps in the gym and keep the Zoomers moving at home!
Starting this SATURDAY, the Noon Zoom class will NO longer happen and will be replaced by the following classes:
SATURDAYS: 8:00AM Class at the Gym & 9:30AM Class at the Gym & Live Zoom.
For the time being, both classes will have LIMITED attendance and MUST be requested by contacting me, Coach Jamie@OakParkLA.com at least 48 hours in advance. I will contact each person on Friday to confirm their attendance.
NOTE: As for other classes at the Gym this week, we are starting with a SOFT OPEN…please contact your primary coach if you want to attend a Gym workout!
Individually we do Murph for a lot of reasons, but we all do Murph to honor…Lt. Michael Patrick “Murph” Murphy…or so I thought…
A few years ago, at a CrossFit LA “Murph” workout event, our keynote speaker, a retired Navy Seal had some lasting advice for all of us…
“…when doing the “Murph” workout, pleases don’t feel like you are honoring a fallen hero by going hard….your actions today mean nothing to me or my fallen friends. Instead, my job was to preserve and protect our way of life. I hope that you respect that and I only ask that you be a good person to your fellow countryman…that’s all…”
With that said…I hope you can show up on Monday, moving in any capacity, and more importantly, support one another… this is what Oak Park is all about!
Live Zoom “Murph”
Memorial Day, Monday, May 25th – 9:00AM
Kenny & Matt will host a Live Zoom introduction from the Gym!
If you checked in here last week, I announced the inaugural 2020 “Mini” Triathlon that was broadcasted LIVE during last Friday’s 6:00 pm Zoom workout. Globally, the sport of Triathlon has been canceled, and even just training has been compromised, due to beach closures and proximity rules.
So…putting vanity aside and prioritizing humility, I created the #ITUminiTriChallenge
I hope you enjoy this video!
And I challenge you to do your own SAFE “mini” triathlon and promote with #ITUminiTriChallenge
As some of you may know, each year I participate in the sport of Triathlon along with a few of your gym mates. In 2019, I planned out my training and event calendar approx. eight months in advance in preparation for the USA National Championships. I have to be at the peak of my performance at this just one event – only the top 10 in each age group can go to the World Championships in 2020. I lucked out and took 4th place to earn my spot on Team USA.
However, It was announced on April 24th, that… “Alberta, Canada’s Health Ministration will not allow any large gatherings in sporting events until 2021.”
The 2020 World Triathlon Championships – IS CANCELED….but wait!!!
What if I could still represent the USA, compete in a Triathlon, and tie in an opportunity to support a charity……..hummmmmm…..?
I PRESENT TO YOU…
The 2020 “MINI” – WORLD TRIATHLON CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!

You are not obligated to donate, but I can assure you that when you see me in my SKIN TIGHT USA “ONESY” and the body mass index stuffed inside….you’ll feel the sudden urge to UNSEEN me and click the LINK!!!
