New CrossFitter of the Month, Jennifer Sacoolas, New Goals, and New PRs…that’s how we welcome 2016! Get your goals on the board ASAP!!! It’s going to be a great year!!!

Our FIRST CrossFit Conditioning Class was a success!  Everyone who tried it, loved it!  If you’re interested, come try it on Wednesday at 10:30am!  It is based on the same principles of our popular Ski and Snowboard Conditioning Boot Camp.  The class begins with a warm-up, but then spends close to 45 minutes of constant core and leg-based work with a little upper body strength training for fun!  This is the perfect class for those of you looking to build your cardio capacity without the use of barbells.  This new class is included in our unlimited membership, but non-members can purchase a punchcard for 10 Conditioning classes at $125.  It’s good, leg-burning, core-shaking, heart-pounding fun!

Please take your jump rope home this month.  We are doing inventory of all jumpropes, and then creating a better hanging system in February.  We need our current members to take their jumpropes home so that we can figure out how many “gym” ropes we have.  Thank you for your help in this manner!

CrossFit Classes:

The Lift:  Push Press 3-3-3-3
then:

For Time:
21-15-9 reps of:
