110214 – Monday

  • Our latest batch of Stronger Faster Healthier’s Omega-3 Oils, Post-WOD, & Fortified Proteins are IN!!! If you’ve been taking them, be sure and stock up quickly, this stuff is popular. If you haven’t been taking it, you’d better start soon before everyone starts lapping you…Pick them up at the Front Desk and take care of yourself!
  • CrossFit Games Open Sectionals are coming up in less than 5 weeks. We will be hosting the WOD’s every week at our box, and we are very excited about this. The Open Sectional is also going to be the selection process for the Affiliate Team, so if you’re interested in either, be sure and talk to Coach Tim, or just keep coming to your training sessions and be ready to rock. It’s a 6 week process, but the good news is that you don’t have to travel anywhere, just keep doing the awesome stuff you’re doing.
  • Starting something new this week: Member Profile of the Week! Here’s how it’s gonna work: We’re going to post a profile about a member of our box, but we’re not going to post the name. Everyone can guess, etc, and test your knowledge of your fellow Volts & Vixens. The first one is below today’s photos…Enjoy!
  • Seriously, could the Barbell Class on Saturdays be any cooler?

It’s so cool, RJ can’t even look directly at it!

It’s so cool, even the kids are into it.
