Meet the lovely Catherine!  Why is she smiling you ask?!  Could it be because she loves CrossFit so much?   Perhaps she's happy she survived her workout?  Find out why....here!

New training cycle starts this week.  The Benchmark workouts are on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. If you miss any, make them up on the other days  you are in.   LOG your weights, times, and any scaling so you can compare at the end of the cycle when we repeat the Benchmarks.

Also, we are big fans of the squat.  BIG FANS!  Try to ensure you are squatting once per week.  If you miss “squat day” you can make it up on another training day.
