See what we did there?

We’re all feeling it. The doldrums of the PNW winter. Let’s start thinking ahead to the warm days of spring we enjoy so much!  It’s not only time to clean out our closets, it’s also a great time to revisit our fitness goals or set new ones. Summer is right around the corner. Maybe a marathon? Maybe an obstacle race? Maybe hiking Rainer? Maybe it’s turning off Netflix? We can help!


We invite you to join us for our upcoming free, no obligation Community CrossFit Class!
