Looking for something to do this weekend? Be sure to go check out our athletes at Girls Gone Rx competition held at CrossFit Eminence this Saturday! Follow the link for more information. Best of luck to all the athletes!
First, let me say how proud I am of every athlete thus far…It’s been truly amazing to see the energy and attitude you all have maintained.
As for today (Thursday) it will serve as a recovery and mobility day to help us continue our trend of leaving the gym healthy. You’ll get plenty of movement and sweat I guarantee but I want to prepare our bodies for the final test of the wee on Friday.
I hope regardless of it being a recovery focused day we have just as great of attendance as we’ve had this week!
