Training Tights and Spin Bikes
We've got a few interesting updates for you as we move into February!
First off, we've uploaded some NEW GEAR to our online SHOP, specifically we now have athletic tights/leggings and shorts avaiable. You may have seen Coach Michelle wearing her "green sp
lash" tights around the gym over the past few weeks, and were likely wondering "how can I get a pair of those?". Well now you can, plus we have
a full range of prints and colors to choose from.
We also have athletic shorts in both black and dark blue if that's more your style, and I can attest that they are roomy enough and stretchy enough for the full range of crossfit activities.
Check them out today!
Secondly, you may have heard that your next door neighbour gym - Just Move - has started up some spin classes. Spin is a great addition to your regular Crossfit training as it helps you build your engine without stressing your joints. You can build your aerobic and anaerobic ability pretty well in spin workouts that's for sure. Any member from Vic City can try a spin class for FREE (click here), and currently we are running them on tuesdays (Michelle) and thursdays (Cam) at 530pm for 45 minutes.
As a special offer, we also have a discount on a spin class punch card of 27% off (about $13 per class) for any current or former Vic City member. Click HERE to pick one up, this discount is available until the end of March!
That's about it for now, we'll be releasing details about our 2022 Intramural Crossfit Open early next week, so until then, grab some swag and get your sweat on!
