Full-In Throwdown: Event 1

on Saturday, 12 January 2013. Posted in news

Saturday, January 12th we're taking on our second members-only (now annual) Jogo Throwdown. From 10am until about 3:30pm forty of our athlete's will be competing head-to-head in 3 different events and 3 different skill challenges.  Thus far only Event One has been revealed.

Event One:  5-Rep Thruster Ladder

  • Competitors will have 50 seconds to complete 5 consecutive Thrusters at a given weight.
  • If they are able to complete a weight within the time cap, they may move on to the next station after a 10 second down period.
  • Competitors must wait in their previous bar’s area during the 10 second down period.
  • In the event that an athlete is unable to complete all 5 thrusters at a given weight, and there is still time left, they may choose to reattempt the weight, OR do as many deadlifts as they can in the remaining time for partial points.

The score will be BEST 5-REP THRUSTER WEIGHT + ANY EXTRA CONSECUTIVE THRUSTERS (tenths) + ANY ADDITIONAL DEADLIFTS (hundredths). Highest score wins.

  • There will be 4 different ladders, and competitors may choose which to start on.
  • There will be a 5 minute transition period between ladders.
  • Any competitor completing a full previous ladder must move on to the next ladder.

Ladder 1. 35, 45, 55, 65, 75, 85 pounds 
Ladder 2. 95, 105, 115, 125, 135, 145 pounds

Stay tuned tomorrow as the remaining 2 events and 3 skill challenges are announced.

What Did Misty Do?

on Wednesday, 31 August 2011. Posted in news



Early on in Jogo's existence a woman named Misty Nikula found her way to us. From day one she came in and started putting up top scores on the board during 6am class. Throughout the day, the other classes would arrive and make their way over to the board and at first the question was, "who is this Misty person?!?" But as the legend of Misty grew folks walked in the door for their workout and the first words from their mouths were, "what's the workout today?" - immediately followed by - "what did Misty do?" Over the years she's continued to set the bar high for her 6am crew and the other classes to follow.

Earlier this month, one of the largest CrossFit competitions in Washington State was held at Magnuson Park in Seattle. Misty has had her sights set on it since Regionals in June. After a month away on summer vacation, she came back and worked her butt off in class and with her personal coach, Jonathan, to get ready... and boy was she ever ready.

At 42-years-old, she chose to compete in the Master's division and came away with a stellar 3rd place overall finish.

Here's the full rundown of her efforts during the competition:

Event #1: Sandbag RunFinished: 4th w/ a time of 15:54

Event #2: One Rep Max Clean & JerkFinished: 5th w/ a weight of 125#
Side-Note: She also completed a body-weight clean at 135# which was a PR for her

Event #3: Box Jumps & Double-UndersFinished: 2nd w/ a score of 4-rounds

Event #4: Clean Thruster, Toes to Bar, Hand Release Push-Ups, KB SwingsFinished: 3rd w/ a time of 8:51

Congrats Misty & Coach Jonathan on an awesome day!

jogo ohio street
3-days Before Our Grand Opening - November 9th, 2007
 
A little more than three-years-ago I remember standing in our old space on Ohio Street, the night before we opened, taking everything in. The walls were painted. The rubber floor was finished. The equipment was all setup... the gym was ready... and I remember being just totally overwhelmed with gratitude.

Gratitude, to me, is when you look at some beautiful thing in your life and recognize it's beyond your doing. This is the feeling I have every day about Jogo... infinite thanks and humility to get to be a part of something that's so much bigger than me.

There were so many hopes for Jogo before it came to be...

As a gym, I wanted it to be a place that challenged people... where they'd leave a little better, a little stronger, a little fitter, a little more confident of what they were capable of every single day. I wanted it to be a place of elite fitness... where the programming, instruction and experience the members received would be second to none.

As a community, I wanted Jogo to be a place where people would come and have life breathed into them... where they would know they mattered and belonged, no matter their story... where they'd find a home away from home.

As a business, I wanted our success to be built solely on the success of our community. I wanted their results and their stories to be what inspired others to join us. If we grew, I'd know it wasn't because of advertising or marketing, but because we were serving our members well and they were sharing the love.

Looking Back - Jogo's 3rd Birthday Party - November 22, 2010
 
And so here we are, living it out, and it's beyond anything I ever could've wanted or imagined for it. Somewhere along the way, it took on a life of it's own... a life added to by each one of you. I'm so grateful for the part each of you has played in making Jogo what it is... for how good you are to one another... for how much you rise to the challenges we throw at you and inspire those around you to rise. I'm grateful for the way all of you have made Jogo a home... to a point that you leave your shoes, clothes, jewelry, Christmas trees, coat racks, fans, water-bottles, notepads, jumpropes, bikes, orthotics, protein powder, headbands, socks, towels and so many other things behind, knowing they'll be well kept... meanwhile taking so so soooo many of our pens with you, knowing we'll just keep buying more ;)

I believe one of the greatest miracles in life is finding something that lights you up inside. Well thank you little gym, from the bottom of my heart, for lighting me up... for making me excited to wake-up and go to "work" every morning... for giving me a purpose where I get to love and serve each of you every day and help show you your potential... a purpose that challenges me to bring more and better to the table everyday... that inspires me to lead from the front. Thank you for joining in the journey.

Thank you to my brothers... Brad, Art, Justin, Jonathan and sweet Shain.
I couldn't ask for better men to stand beside. I often get so much of the credit because I have the "owner" title next to my name - but I hope each of you know how much of the success of the gym is because of your hearts, passion and stellar good looks. You're exceptional. Thank you.

So to you, little gym, I hold up my post-Whole 30-challenge glass of wine and toast you and say CHEERS and Happy Thanksgiving!
