Athletes will be divided up into 4 teams. Each team will have a captain. Captains will have various small duties, one of which will be selection of their team via a blind draft on Monday February 15th!
Open workouts will be completed on Saturdays with your entire team. Teams will be given an adequate time allotment to complete their workouts in heats. Teams will be responsible for organizing judging for workouts. Following Covid restrictions we will only have one team in the gym at a time. If an athlete is unable to make their Saturday Open workout time we will do our best to facilitate them so the workout can be completed.

Goal Review Sessions
We have opened bookings for our Free Goal Review Sessions in February!
In January we had 14 Members book Goal Review Sessions. The information shared during these appointments has not only helped our members, it has helped our gym. Our members come out of these sessions with a more focused plan on achieving their goals. We gained valuable insight on what was working, and what we could improve for our members.
Book yours today!
Personal Training Sessions
It's great to see our athletes investing more into achieving those long and short term goals. When you guys come to us asking for help to improve or learn new movements we already have a game plan going in. We get to see many of you on a daily basis and already have a good idea what will help you. We don't always have the time or opportunity in class to really did deep.
30 min private training sessions are perfect for breaking down movements to their core elements and building from there!
Many athletes have been taking advantage of these session lately and have seen many great improvements!
Contact Jesse to book yours today!
A big shout out to Jesse who has spent countless hours over the last few weeks on many improvements to the gym! He has rearranged the racks to allow for more workout squares, which has allowed everyone the ability to attend the classes they want! Additional improvements include: sanding down the pull up bars, cleaning and greasing the barbells, adding more bolts to the racks to better secure them, and adding wallball targets to the spaces without wall access!
