We can’t believe how fast time flies! We are fast approaching July 4th and the heat wave is upon us!
But, before we sail too far from shore, let’s take a quick look back through the spyglass and see what happened in the month of June!
We all enjoyed another awesome monthly challenge from Coach Andy, he called, ‘Harbor Park Land’ – We hope you all enjoyed the game, we Coaches loved watching you all complete your rolls! Whoever finished the game got to enter a ticket into the drawing. This month, we can have only 1 winner, who IS: LAURIE BAUER
Our June social event – ‘Milwaukee Brewers Game’ was a blast as usual, and we enjoyed the company of over 35 HPCF members! Too bad the Brewers lost…
Thanks to everyone who donated their time to help us get the new Racine facility up and running! We think this is a good new home for everyone, don’t you think? We know many of the kiddos are enjoying the new kid area with all the toys too! We even had our first HPCF Book club meeting at the gym, organized by HPCF Ambassador Nicole Scanlon! If you’re interested in joining the book club, contact Nicole for more details.

July’s Movement challenge is a… ‘Check in Challenge‘
We know July can be one of the most difficult months of the year to get to the gym… We’ve decided to reward those who come to class! How it works: We will have several raffle gift baskets at each gym. You show up to class, you get a ticket to put in any one of the baskets of your choosing. Bid on them all, or put all your tickets in one! At the end of the month, we will have 1 winner per basket. Thanks to Ruffolo’s Hair Studio, UR and other sponsors for donating their generous gifts! Watch Coach Andy and Coach Dave explain this month’s challenge…
Remember to get signed up for our next In house competition. Originally designed to be a classic weightlifting meet, but due to popular demand, we’ve decided to have a dual event: Strongman event & a weightlifting meet. So, sign up for whichever one you choose!
The Strongman events will be slowly leaked this week, so keep an eye out, but you can probably count in; Farmer carries, Truck pulls, sleds and the yoke!
The Deadline to register is July 19th.

June 2018 M.O.M: Robert Berry
Let’s give it up for this awesome guy right here! Kind of an amazing story actually… Robert used to work for one of HPCF’s suppliers as our account representative. Robert was inspired every time he came to the gyms. He finally told his wife (Holly) that she should come check us out. After she joined, Robert started to have some health problems. Fearing that he was going down the path of his family history, he decided to take his health and wellness more seriously and also joined. Robert has been consistent with Holly every morning, coming to 4-5 WODs per week. He signed up and competed in the Nautical Mile Team Competition in his first EVER comp, and is excited to try for the CrossFit Open next year!
Great job Robert, and thank you! Click below to read more about Robert, or watch his video interview below.

Episode 16: The HPCF Journey
For Episode 16 we decided to take a stroll through memory lane. We realized we have a lot of new faces around the gym, and most of you probably don’t know where we came from, why we decided to open our doors, and how we got to the point we are at today. Tune in to listen to our journey from start to finish! Disclaimer, it gets sappy at the end!
– New Recruits –
High fives to these awesome peeps who joined us last month! Lot’s of awesome new faces! You may have seen them around the decks putting in their work as they work to become new recruits! If you see them around, give them a warm HPCF welcome and a High Five!
Welcome to the FitFam & the Fun!

Social Comments of the Month
This one comes at us from our very own Sara Benner. Sara caught our attention this month with this post, because it’s real, it inspires, and she doesn’t hide who she is! Sara embodied what we talk about daily; ‘Get out of your comfort zone’ – and although by her own admission, she has a long way to go, we believe she’s truly come leaps and bounds ahead of where she started. We believe it all started with her mindset, then her dedication. Sara you’ve been an inspiration to watch on this journey, and we encourage you to continue down this path!

Banded Muscle Ups
We love muscle up transition drills. Many of us practice on the floor with the rings, but when it comes to actually hanging from the rings and putting what you’ve practiced into execution is difficult because all of the variables have changed… Well, try using this banded method to feel each specific portion of the ring MU from the first pull, to the turn over!

Try this healthy chicken pesto recipe! Made with cauliflower rice. Can be enjoyed hot or cold and is a wonderful dinner for those hot summer months because it is light on the stomach!
