Our first holiday social WOD marked a major success and turning point in the gym — providing not only good food and fun but a newer level of community. Over 40 members and their significant others met and mingled at Firefly, packing the lounge with lots of laughing (and who are we kidding, lots of fit bodies). Beer crust pizzas, french fries and very un-Paleo yummy drinks flowed with good conversation. After a few hours, the party moved to member Dan M.’s house right around the corner. The wine flowed, the ping pong table was hot and extreme steak and venison aromas filled the air. The party was still going strong at 2 a.m.
To bring people together, not only to suffer during WODs, but to create friendships and community is amazing! We were completely surprised and humbled by the camaraderie displayed during our social WOD and hope to do it again soon.
