Air Squat with Spealler

If you have a minute between shoplifters at the CTC and crashes on 82nd, this video about the squat is short and great. Squats are an antidote to too much turkey and pumpkin pie.

2013-11-14 Celebration of Life

Today 1000s of officers from the NW will be joining Robert Libke's family and the community for a celebration of his life.  The whole CrossFit community stands with our brothers and sisters at CrossFit 1850 as they mourn, heal, and celebrate.

2013-11-04 End of Watch

Tremendous sadness at the passing today of Officer Robert Libke of the Oregon City Police. 

                               This second picture take by Oregonian reporter Steve Mayes on
                               Halloween 2013 of Officer Libke passing out candy to the kids.

“I am deeply saddened to hear that Officer Robert Libke has died from injuries sustained in the line of duty. Officer Libke protected and served his fellow citizens, and the bravery and professionalism he brought to the Oregon City Police Department was matched only by his commitment to his community. I am humbled by his sacrifice and courage, and my thoughts are with his family, his friends, and his fellow Oregon City police officers.”

Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber
