WorkPlay CrossFit is: More Than Fitness http://workplaycrossfit.com/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZf01PvuvQTxoZTq-8tt5lw https://www.instagram.com/workplaycrossfit/

But since our doors are closed at the moment, Let us make it crystal clear here on the internet:
The Work/Play CrossFit Community Stands with the Black Community as it protests against the racism that has gone on for far too long.
We Stand against racist police, who make all of the many good police look bad.
Please also check out, one post down on our wall for a long form piece from our owner Glen Schleehauf

But patience is what's necessary.
Every day we will get closer...
Work/Play CrossFit will reopen...
And we will Reopen better than before!
#workplayanywhere #workplayforever #slowandsteady #continuousimprovement
with Bobby Aroyan, making plans to make the gym better!
Depending on the hour of the day (What day is it anyway, BTW?🤷♂️) we're either going out of business or expanding...
Apologies if this is confusing, It's a confusing time...
And, while going out of business is a real 𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲, it's not what our coaches, our community, our landlord, or anyone whose ever been a part of Work/Play wants to see...
On that, we are all on the same page!
So if we're going out, it will be in a blaze of 𝐆𝐋𝐎𝐑𝐘!
Which brings us to the present moment...
In the last week we have opened up 𝟒𝟓 satellite Workplay CrossFit temporary mini home gyms...
And we are proud to introduce the world to #workplayanywhere
We will simultaneously practice Social Distance and Social Media Closeness!
We hope to inspire more folks out there, by demonstrating how we will handle this crisis...
Because COVID-19 is really no different than any other situation in life. Everything in life comes down to only two questions:
𝗪𝐡𝐨 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮?
𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐠𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐨 𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐥𝐞 𝐢𝐭?
We will continue to do things that we know are good for us, in our basements, back yards, driveways and living rooms!
We will not gain the "Corona 15"
We will find ways to keep moving and making progress. while the whole world stops...
We will come out of this proud of who we are and how we handled a challenging time...
And we will come out of this having learned about ourselves, and having grown tremendously!
We will also be looking to grow our tribe when the dust settles!
So if any of this sounds good, keep us in mind, and we'll keep you entertained and inspired!
Please Stay Tuned....

A place where people are full of energy and life and love as early as 5am in the morning?
A place that could have a tremendous impact on your life?
A place that could make you stronger inside and out?
A place where you'll make friends and learn to work hard and play hard and grow?
A place where you can exceed your own expectations of who you are and what you're capable of?
𝗪𝐞𝐥𝐥, 𝐈'𝐯𝐞 𝐠𝐨𝐭 𝐬𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐁𝐀𝐃 𝐍𝐄𝗪𝐒 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐲𝐨𝐮...
Because, right now, for the first time since Jan 1, 2014, you cannot join...
You missed your chance...
On Monday, we shut our doors, shut out the lights, and we don't know if or when we're coming back...
You had so many chances over the years, to be a part of this, and you missed them...
If you get another chance, in the future, ACT on it!
We'll let you know...
𝐆𝐨 𝐛𝐚𝐜𝐤 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞 𝟏𝟎 𝐲𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐬....
Nobody who was here today @workplaycrossfit would have predicted they'd be climbing ropes at 5:40am and 6:40 am on a Tuesday before their work day.
𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐨𝐟 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞?
I won't try to answer that, today.
𝘐 𝘥𝘰 𝘬𝘯𝘰𝘸 that physical exertion, making self-improvements, hanging out with your friends, feeling connected, feeling like you are capable of doing things you couldn't do before, being a part of a group, learning, and running and lifting and climbing and playing are important parts of finding meaning in your life.
𝐃𝐢𝐝 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐦𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐲𝐞𝐭 𝐭𝐨𝐝𝐚𝐲?
Also, nobody in these pictures was doing this stuff before they joined this gym. They started from scratch and they learned this stuff here. They are not way more fit than you, they just started sooner than you did.
You can start anytime you want!
We'll take you and we'll teach you!

Watch this video and count all the CrossFit exercises or "Not CrossFit" exercises or pieces of equipment you see.

Contrary to popular belief, we're not all just doing high rep olympic weightlifting, kipping pull-ups, thrusters and, burpees all day. We're not out here tearing labrums and giving people Rhabdo.
Here, at Work/Play, we work our asses off to help our clients get healthier, stronger and fitter. We don't care what anyone tells us is or isn't CrossFit. When we find an exercise we think will help our members get what they want out of their strength and conditioning journey, we'll do it.
Do you really think CrossFit is dangerous, or do you think that's a line someone fed you who'd already given up on fulfilling their potential, and wanted a convenient excuse to do nothing?

@7pm Monday-Thursday we are here, lifting weights.
YOU Could be too...
Think about it...
Ask yourself: What could I do, that I would do, to make my life a little better?
Could you learn to lift weights?
Yes, we will teach you!
Would this make your life better?
OMG yes it sure would!
Would it be fun?
How would it make you feel?
Healthier, Stronger and More Alive than you’ve felt in a long time..
Think about it...

Coming soon to Work/Play CrossFit!
This is going to be Delicious!

In the past week, I have had the same conversation three separate times:
"𝘏𝘰𝘸 𝘭𝘰𝘯𝘨 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘣𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦?"
"This is our 7th year!"
"𝘙𝘦𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺? 𝘛𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘨𝘺𝘮 𝘭𝘰𝘰𝘬𝘴 𝘣𝘳𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘯𝘦𝘸!"
I beamed with pride and joy! We are just getting started! And I hope the same thing happens to all our members:
Join the gym at age 26 or 36 or 46 or 56, stick with us for 10 years and end up having people tell you that you look ten years younger.....

FAMOUS TIMES where had! Good to see the Work/Play Fam out laughing and smiling and socializing last night! We should do this more often!
AND then to see the Neon Green Palace packed full of energy and people...many of the same faces...here this morning, was similarly awesome!
Just what the doctor ordered!
There’s been a lot of changes this year, and such is life.... The only thing that never changes is that everything is always changing!
But ultimately, as long as we keep the chain of connection
from the roots of our community back in 2014 through until the present moment, OUR Community Spirit can remain as something unchanging and reliable and dependable in an otherwise chaotic and ever changing world.
Yes, the people gradually change, but the idea of a Third Place, that is not your work or your home...but that feels like home, and gives warmth and comfort and the sensation of belonging, of family, of being a part of something great....
THAT endures, that can and will stand the test if time if we nurture it, nurture each other!
So thanks Fam, for nurturing me a bit this weekend, and this year!
We’ve been tested, but that’s why we strength train. Life is not like school. In school you study lessons then you take a test. In life you get tested, and then you learn your lessons...
But if all this testing snd learning wasn’t happening, we wouldn’t grow, evolve, improve, or get better!
So, here’s to getting better, together, every day, every year for as long as we can!
BoomCity, Abington MA!!

The kids are back in school and you know what that means:
Moms can get back to the gym!
Actually these women pictured never left, they made it work all Summer.
But if you haven’t been able to work while your kids have been home for Summer vacation, that is sooo understandable!
Now is the time to take back some time for yourself!
Message us for our back to school specials!!!
Fun morning at Work/Play! Hope everyone seeing this has a day off and a lovely day! 💚
PS day is not over yet: come get a workout with us at 10am. Get out of bed and get dressed Now!!!
Robo is clearly very excited about the new equipment delivery! Just in time for the front box squats today😍💚📦
You may have noticed the post workout “nap” videos this morning. Here is Coach Robo with a brief explanation behind why.
What you need to know:
* Within your nervous system you have two different pathways that regulate bodily functions such as heart rate, blood pressure and recovery to name just a few. The Parasympathetic system and the Sympathetic nervous system.
* The Parasympathetic system is responsible for down regulating the body and is where rest, digestion and recovery can take place. Here you will have a low heart rate/ventilation rate and will generally be in a relaxed state. This state is where we want to be for optimal recovery from the physical and metabolic stress placed on the body during training.
* The Sympathetic system stimulates the bodies fight or flight capabilities. This is the state you are in during an intense bout of exercise. In an elevated sympathetic state you can expect a higher heart rate, likely a higher breath rate and a nervous system primed and ready to signal skeletal muscle to contract
💡During training we put our bodies through a ton of mechanical and metabolic stress. This leaves us in an elevated Sympathetic state post workout. This can last for hours after training and hinder our bodies ability to heal. We can mitigate this by stimulating our Parasympathetic nervous system with a simple breathing protocol to bring us back to baseline prior to training.
How to do it:
Immediately following an intense training session, simply find a bench and lay down with your hips and knees at a 90 degrees angle. From there spend roughly 5 minutes on focused breathing and intentional relaxation. All you need to do it close your eyes, breath in deep filling your belly and then your chest. Finish off with an exhale that is longer than your inhale. Again, focus only on your deep breathing and settling down your heart rate. Hope this helps you guys to understand the why behind those post workout “naps” 🤟🏼💚
📢 BIG NEWS:
WE ARE HIRING!!!
