Virtual CrossFit Recap: WEN Women Warriors

Our 2nd “Stay Healthy in 2020” event was a huge success. Participating virtually, via zoom, a hard core team of WEN Boston members took to a CrossFit session on a Thursday night in April. After a long day of sitting, the CrossFit session was a welcome ending to the day.

Led by Carey Robinson and Amanda Chace of CrossFit Torque in Foxboro, the group, including beginners, were lead through a typical CrossFit workout - the stealthy participants went through a series of warmups, mobility and AMRAP (aka “as many reps as possible”) in the comfort of their own homes. The entire workout lasted about an hour.

Many earned their night time treats:
“Great way to engage with friends and colleagues while also doing something healthy! Thanks to CrossFit Torque for a super virtual workout! I earned my ice cream....maybe...”

The beginners:
“I was hesitant at first, being a newbie, but Carey led us and showed us how to do the exercises and the modified ones, so I was able to keep up!”

Overall it was a great chance to stay connected while staying healthy with our fellow WEN friends:
“The Crossfit workout was a great way to connect with WEN colleagues and get a workout in after a long workday! It was a lot of fun!”
