Tuesday’s workout begins with a some time spent on learning the skill and strength of the Turkish Get-up. The TGU teaches stability and strength in all corners along with balance and patterning. Multi-planar exercises are uniquely challenging and test a large gap in typical CrossFit Programming. Technique and stability is everything so be careful with the weight you choose.

Snow storm update for 1/4/18

By | Announcements | No Comments

Snow Day, January 4th, 2018

Due to the snow storm we’re expecting, the gym will have only one class tomorrow at 6am. After that, we’ll be closed for the remainder of day. We’ll keep an eye on how things unfold for Friday, 1/5/18.

We apologize for any inconvenience


Need a home workout?

Here’s a spicy little workout you can do at home if you can’t make it in for the 6am class:

As many repetitions as possible (Cap 12):
20 In-place walking lunges
15 Sit-ups
10 Burpees
* If you have weights at home, use for the lunges. If not, you can use a bag of rice, your baby, your cat / dog or your Christmas tree if you haven’t thrown it away yet 😉
