Push it to the Limit

Just a reminder, there will be no yoga class today at 10am. Classes for tomorrow (Monday 5/26) will be held at 9, 10 & 11am in Southie Green. See you then!

We’ve got REGIONALS to look forward to this week! One of the best ways to test your abilities as a CrossFitter is through competition. Competition takes you outside of your realm of comfort and permits you to accomplish things you may have never deemed possible. There are countless opportunities to compete this summer, whether it be in a local crossfit competition, a triathlon, or even the civilian military combine. Take a look at the list of opportunities that you can participate in and commit to signing up for one.
