Due to the Vaughn Weightlifting Launch Party we’re hosting on Friday night – we’re going to cancel the 6:30pm class.  It’s just going to be too tight to try to work it in with the class in place.  We hope you understand – and we also hope you come out for the party!  It’s shaping up to be a pretty cool party – and you’ll get to check out the Chad Vaughn Weightlifting line of products before they really hit the market!

Chad is a 2 time olympian – and he’ll be in the house to demo the products as well as maybe give some pointers and tips to those who are seeking them!  David Durante is supposed to be coming as well – another olympian (gymnastics) and is on the CrossFit Gymnastics certification team.  So you might be able to get some pointers and progressions on any dreaded gymnastics skills as well (and I’ve seen many of you working on things lately!)

A pretty special occasion and right in our own house!  We hope to see you all there!

A small number of tickets are still available… get yours now if you haven’t!


I cannot stress this enough. If you’ve never been to the Games, GO.  Just go down there and get a one day pass and check it out.  It’ll be at the Stub Hub Center all weekend and it’s seriously the baddest experience ever.  You’ll leave pumped to come train on Monday – and ultimately will only make you a better and fitter person/athlete.  All the information you need is at http://games.crossfit.com.

If you cannot make it there, you can watch the events live on ESPN and ESPN2 all weekend as well.  Check here for a schedule.
