Unfortunate but necessary changes due to COVID-19

Yesterday Orange County Public Health took another step to limit the spread and exposure of the COVID-19 virus by prohibiting all non-essential public and private gatherings. Despite the tremendous value in our program and the amazing community benefits it provides, our program falls in the non-essential column in the world of public health. As of last evening, CrossFit No Boundaries has closed temporarily. We will continue to follow the guidance and directives of our federal, state, and county authorities. While this mandate is not a “shelter in place” order, our regular daily activities and schedules are being significantly impacted. The daily interruptions and changes lead to confusion and unease. I’m going to encourage you to look at this as an opportunity not only to have a positive impact on our community by practicing what is being labeled, "social distancing," at large but also an opportunity to challenge ourselves in new ways. Our hope is to be fully operational as soon as possible.

This decision was not easy to make and in the meantime, I intend to support you through the virtual platforms we already use. This means providing with you an at-home program that continues your development of General Physical Preparedness. Today is a rest day, time to retool the system to provide you with a program you can do from home with or without equipment. We will still be using the same sound training principles to help you develop yourself around the ten general skills of fitness, endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. We are still in the pursuit of the same goal therefore the context of our programming will remain the same, it’s only the geography that will change.

One element that will be missing is the social aspect, the community, our direct gym family. At a time when we have much uncertainty, I know how important it is to have a place to gather and share with other like-minded folks. Fortunately, we live in an amazing time that allows us the ability to be near each other but can practice “social distancing.” As you continue your training we hope you’ll share your practice with your healthy friends and family. Invite them to use this time to join us in our developmental pursuit of performance. Even our county health officer encourages healthy community members to run, hike, and walk their dogs as long as they do so alone or with close family while social distancing from others (6 feet).

This is an important step to protect our health care system and I look forward to working through this interruption, returning to our regular program with you.
