New Specialty Class: ENDURANCE!
Starting February 26th, Coach Colin will be leading an Endurance Class on Thursday nights at 5:30pm! This class is open to all our membership types (Unlimited, 3/week, Punch Card) at no additional cost. Feel like your aerobic endurance is lacking or you just can’t seem to catch your breath during workouts? Adding some Endurance work to your weekly training might be just what you need to round out your fitness! Since we currently reside in a frozen hellscape, the first cycle of this Endurance class is going to focus on Rowing. And as such, we have to limit class size to 12. So here is the link to Sign-up for the first session of this class on Feb. 26th: https://whaling-city-crossfit.theboxhq.com/schedule/966287/register/
