New Dan

Dan Nebhut Photo

Hopefully by now everyone has had a chance to meet and speak with new Dan, Dan.2, or Dan v2. Dan has come on full time after taking a tour of Northern Virginia seeing what he does and does not like about CrossFit gyms.  After weeks of interviewing, discussing concepts and plans we have decided to give him a full time home.  We’re both excited for the future as he settles in here and works to push this community forward.   Please welcome him as I am excited to have him on board. …

What do you do with a bachelor’s in Applied Nutrition? Well, if you’re Dan, you move to Brooklyn, New York, take a job in construction consulting, buy a kettlebell online to swing around in your tiny concrete backyard, and rely on CrossFit.com for instruction! Then, months later, when you’re doing pull-ups on monkey bars and jumping onto picnic tables in the park, your wife-to-be pushes you into the nearest actual CrossFit gym. Dan joined CrossFit Vituosity, became their handyman, then coaching apprentice, then moved back to northern Virginia to become a full-time coach.

In recent years, Dan has been a head coach and programmer at multiple CrossFit gyms, developed kettlebell and weightlifting seminars, and even coached highschool baseball. His academics are in nutrition, anatomy, and physiology, but his practical experience is as a hands-on coach training people to improve every day.

Ask him anytime about the value and definition of virtuosity, or his favorite Aristotle quote!

Guys, I’m proud to announce that our casino night raised a whopping $5340.99 for our two charities.  I appreciate everyone who came out to celebrate, donate, gamble and to have a good time.  Also, thank you to our planning committee (above) for putting this event together.  They did a wonderful job.  The place looked amazing and the event went off without a hitch.  Thanks again to everyone!

Weightlifting:

2x Hang Power Snatch + 2x Overhead Squat

Work to the heaviest weight you can while still going unbroken… not letting the bar touch the ground until after the second overhead squat. Remember to pause briefly at the hang position of each snatch to establish good position and minimize stretch reflex.

On January 9th, 2016, we’ll be hosting a Casino Night and Silent Auction right here at the gym to raise money for two local charities: Reel American Heroes Foundation and Helping Neighbors in Need. Take a minute to google each charity and you can find out about some of the amazing work they’re both doing in the Woodbridge community.

As for the actual event, you definitely don’t want to miss it. Tickets are only $10 and include a free drink ticket  (if purchased in advance) and play gambling money. You will then have the chance to spend the night playing poker, craps, roulette, and blackjack with all of your CFW friends and guests. The top three chip leaders at the end of the night will even qualify for some pretty amazing prizes!

We’ll have beer and wine for sale all night (all proceeds raised go to the charities) and free snacks and desserts available as well as some really great photo opportunities in your formal wear!

Additionally, you’ll have the chance to bid on some really exciting silent auction items. So far our list includes the below items and continues to grow every day.
