Today is the first day of Hero Wod Week. Each day this week we will be honoring specific soldiers who lost their lives fighting for our every day freedoms. We perform these workouts as tribute to all the brave men and women who put their lives on the line every day.
“For those of us who undertake these physical tests, the
psychological effects of performing a Hero workout are
tremendous. It’s easy to treat these prescriptions as any
workout of the day, but for those who take the time to
learn about the heroes they honor, the WODs can become
as spiritual and emotionally demanding as they are physically

Expansion plans are now underway. They are building the garage door as we speak, the floor and walls are going to get cleaned and leveled, new lighting is being put in, and the wall will be torn down soon after. They expect to be nearly done in July, weather and other things permitting.
CrossFit Kids is coming soon, after or nearly after expansion is done! If you are interested, please contact Tyler with your child’s name and age!
Our Sunday morning Bradford Beach WODs and Hooverball are coming soon! The up and down weather is messing us up right now! Stay updated on the calendar and Facebook!
Our L2 classes will be starting up soon (we will be changing the name to Advanced CrossFit). We plan to have a test out day every month for which you test out to enter this class. It’s an advanced class for advanced athletes looking to take their fitness to another level, either as a competitor in the Sport of CrossFit, or just to be better in general. The guidelines are here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7HSJg7IcSg0MzZiT0hScjdJUnM/edit?usp=sharing
We are continually evaluating the needs of our class times. Be on the lookout for test time slots to see the popularity.
As always, please continue to look on our website for updates, along with Facebook. If you are on Facebook, but not in our internal private group, please let Tyler or another member know and we can add you.
