October Bootcamp Begins TOMORROW, October 2nd!
Are you looking to revamp your fitness routine this fall? Maybe you need to get back to work after a summer of fun? Our bootcamp is a community-based, high energy, circuit-style conditioning workout without the use of barbells or high skill gymnastics. This program is more challenging than your average boot camp, but less intense than CrossFit. This bootcamp is great for weight-loss, extra conditioning, or as a ramp-up into CrossFit classes. The special rate of $149 for the month includes 3 bootcamp classes per week, plus 2 bonus conditioning classes per week, 1 bonus “butts and gutts” class per week, and Sunday Yoga. Click HERE for more details and to get signed up!

    Thanks for dropping in, Jon. Hearing about Mark and the kind of guy he was really helps to connect with these hero WODs.
    “We called him Badger bc he was small, a beast and hairy”. Classic!
