Memorial W.O.D. for Nick 9am and Strongman 10am Saturday 6/9/18

Reminder,  after our workout at 9am is our Strongman informal event from 10am-1pm!  For anyone and everyone, come have some fun learning and experimenting with some new skills and movements, in a no pressure atmosphere!  This will be informal but will have coaches on hand to lead and instruct through some challenging movements!  We’ll delve into the fine art of pushing, pulling, carrying, and loading things! Bring a snack and some ambition!

Hey family, there has been a huge response of support for fellow friend, brother, crossfitter, gymnast, and special needs teacher, Nick Hostler from CrossFit RTB, suddenly passing at the age of 35, on May 30, 2018.  Many either may be uncomfortable going to another gym, do not know where RTB is, have the time available, or may not know Nick, yet still want to honor him.

CrossFit RTB has given us permission for these reasons above, so we will be doing his memorial WOD at CFR for the 9am workout. They are very supportive of this. It will be treated like a Hero workout, where we come together showing strength and support for their CrossFit community and the friends and family affected by this, as we have many in our CFR community as well.

After the morning workout, if you have a chance later in the day, the doors to RTB will be open for a silent auction and bake sale until 5PM, where you can make donations to the Nick Hostler Memorial Fund which will offer educational scholarships to children with special needs. You can also donate here if you feel led to… through paypal account [email protected] Make checks payable to Crossfit RTB VIP with Nick Hostler Memorial Fund in the memo line. As this is the non-profit organization, all donations are tax deductible.

Nick’s true passion was working with the special needs community so ALL proceeds will go to that community.

Unless you already have plans to go to RTB, please join us at 9am to honor him with this 3 person partner workout below.

All these numbers and movements represent him and his abilities…
