August 10 & 11th Fitness Weekend!
In a couple of weeks' time, we have two fitness options for you to take on outside of our regular classes! Summer is a great time to get outside and use all that fitness you've earned in the gym :)
On Saturday August 10th Coach Phil is hosting our BEACH WOD at Willows Beach! I'm sure there will be a fun mix of workouts and likely an option to dip in the water after. Please RSVP via the Facebook Event Page by clicking HERE. The workout is by donation, with support going to the Terry Fox foundation, so you'll be supporting an excellent cause at the same time!
On Sunday August 11th, a crew is heading over to Vancouver to take on the Grouse Grind! Spearheaded by Scott Harlow, Matt Cleaver, and Coach Cam, this will be a one - day trip (8am ferry over, 5-7 ferry back). We will carpool to get a good rate on the ferry, and you can climb the Grind at your own pace! Word on the street is that Scotty will be doing it twice (with a 30lb pack), however one time is typically enough for most people. It should be a great day of a fitness challenge with friends and some good company back on the ferry! RSVP to this Facebook event page HERE to commit to the fit.
