I haven't played Soccer in a while, but I think I can figure it out again.

Greg Glassman, founder of the CrossFit methodology summed up 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, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, 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."

With that last line in mind, "learn and play new sports," we are looking to put together a coed 30+ indoor soccer team for The Compound. The games will take place at Soccer Nation next door to us. The season begins September 14th, and games are played every Tuesday for 8 weeks in the evenings. We need to fill a team of 15 players. If we fill the 15 player team the cost will be $65 per participant.

The only rules are you must be male or female, you must be over 30 years of age, and you must be a member of The Compound. If the team fills ups and you don't get a chance to join, the seasons are only a few weeks long and we can see about putting another team together the following season. We have 5 players already so there are only 10 spots remaining. Add your name to the comment section if you want to play. It's first come first serve...we can do tryouts when we get really good.

So let's get out there, play a new sport (for some of you), and see our improved fitness at work. cc

  6. I love the requirement "you must be male or female". Glad I qualify for that one, especially since I just barely qualify for the age requirement :) I would be happy to be your token Asian.
