CrossFit Vertex Color Run Team

What is Color Mania 5k™?
Color Mania is some of the most fun you will ever experience. A super fun walk/run event that blows traditional 5k’s out of the water and allows you to color outside the lines. Color Mania focuses less on speed and more on having crazy colorful fun with friends and family and building great memories. Participants, also known as, Color Maniacs are made up of all different ages, shapes, sizes, and speeds. Whether you are a casual walker or a competitive athlete, Color Mania is sure to have something on hand for everyone. Your outlook on life will be changed forever after you come play at Color Mania!

How does it work?
Color Mania has TWO BASIC rules:
1)  Participants must wear a mostly white shirt at the start line. A blank canvas if you will. (This is Mandatory)
2)  Walk or run the course and have your blank canvas filled with color by the end.

**2013 Memorial Day/Weekend Schedule**

Sunday 5/26-Closed

Monday 5/27-8am and 12pm Classes

Join CFV for our first annual ‘Memorial Day Murph’


For time:
1 mile Run
100 Pull-ups
200 Push-ups
300 Squats
1 mile Run

In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.

This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he’d named it “Body Armor”. From here on it will be referred to as “Murph” in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.

Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you’ve got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it.

 World Class Fitness In 100 Words

Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, clean and jerk, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, paralettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.

    I heard about you guys threw a buddy of mine when I went to school in CT. I started a job not too far from your facility, curious to see what you guys are about. When do you guys meet? For how long? What’s it’s gonna cost me? Is it going to break the bank (haha)

    Look forward to hearing from you
    Thank you
