Cards at the park!

The park work out this week will be in the format of a card game. The movements involved will be push-ups, overhead walking lunges with the plate, kettle bell swings, and box jumps. It will be a 15 minute Amrap. And the wildcard is a run. It is bound to be a whole lot of fun. Don’t miss it!! Meet at the gym to warm up and partner up. As always, those that choose to run back to the gym get gold stars!!!!


Gettin’ down on Friday

Were you one of the millions of people who watched the CrossFit Games last month and got maybe more than a little inspired by those amazing athletes giving it all in front of all those cheering fans? Every October our friends down at Black Box Fitness in Albuquerque put on a local competition call Boxtoberfest (get it?). It consists of teams of 2 people and is open to anybody who wants to compete. We already have 4 teams going so you’re feeling the itch for a little competition training, talk to Coach Dorsey immediately! And you can read more about it here –>
