The Night Before the Opens…

shivani collage

Shivani is one of those members who always brings an amazingly positive energy to class. She is always smiling and dancing. Shivani is constantly looking to push herself a little bit more each WOD but also knows her limits and puts in the work to improve her areas of weakness. Her attitude is unlike any other and her flexibility is super impressive too. Say hello next time you see Shivani, you’ll leave the conversation in a better mood!

    I tried that conditioning WOD. Only made it to 1500m before I ran out of time with 12 burpees. That is no joke.
    Quigs – what about AMRAP driveway shoveling? I am so primed I could probably take down the Champ right now.

      Nice work, Quigs. You should take a vacation more often.
