• Who we are…

    We are a supportive, fun, & constantly improving group of individuals who celebrate each others' success, and give each other a pat on the back on the days when our demons win. We workout to make our lives easier and push ourselves the most we can on each day. We know it's by simply showing up and giving our best that progress is made. We workout today, so we can work it tomorrow. That, and this one of our favorite youtube videos.
  • GET STARTED!

    We could go into some long philosophical description of what goes on in our little place of sweat. But telling you that we're a strength & conditioning facility, or that we increase you work capacity, wouldn't mean much to you unless you actually experience it. You can't learn to ride a bike by reading a book, and you can't truly know what CrossFit is until you've broken a sweat with us. There are 1440 minutes in the day, come spend a few with us!

clean a little

Saturday competition update below!

“Never give up on a dream because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.” -Earl Nightingale

Super cool science link of the Day – Get the Lead out (Roman style)

Workout of the Day -

A – OMEM for 15 minutes
- 2 full clean (heavy)
- 6 push-ups

B – Tabata Ring Rows

The tentative schedule was emailed to me yesterday, and from the looks of things, the TEAM stuff doesn’t start until a little after 1pm. The window they gave was 12:45-1:30, with 1:15 being the time on the actual schedule. Check in starts at 8am. I’m hoping/think that means that I can go check in, and the rest of you don’t have to be there until a bit before 1. Ill be confirming that either today or tomorrow, depending on when people get back to me. Of course, this whole thing isn’t just about US, and you are more than welcome to go earlier to see/cheer on the people doing the individual competition.

Looking forward to it!

(Here’s what was emailed to me)

Here is a rough schedule of the event. Times are approximate + or – 20 minutes
