Open Floor: Work on the skills that need the most attention for you at the moment. What does it mean?!... It means work on the movements you hate doing because you can't do them well or can't do them at all. And don't forget flexibility. Pick the Mobility WOD from K-Star's collection, grab some bands, lacrosse balls, a foam roller and get it done. And please sign up for classes here

Mark you Calendars: 9/17/2011 - We are hosting Fight Gone Bad 6. Join our team!

Reminder: There are no classes today. We are hosting the USA Elite Kettlebell Power Juggling & H2H Workshop with Oksana Nikifor and Jeff Martone.

Please join me in congratulating Tim, Sofia and Leisa with successfully finishing their first Kettlebell competition! Leisa achieved Rank 1 in the GPP category, snatching the kettlebell 185 times! Sofia got Rank 2 in the GPP category with 130 reps! Tim got Rank 1 in the GPP category with 103 reps in the Long Cycle! Not a small feat for such a short training cycle. Well done! Also big thanks to Al Senior, Tim, Sofia, Leisa, Oren and Alison for your help with organizing such a great event!
