The Open is upon us!... "The Open is not about winning; it’s about playing ... Like in traditional sports, the thrill is not in making it to the pros — too few do so. The thrill is in the 'What if?' It’s in the playing itself." -Kevin Daigle "Do It". The announcement of the first workout 14.1 is this Thursday, Feb 27th! We are doing the workout on Saturday at 10am for the whole gym, and the team Clactonians is hosting the after party, after we are done with the workout!

 

Happy Birthday, Axel!
