FIRE IT UP!  FIRE IT UP!

June is coming to a close and we are about to kick off our in house “Wanna Throwdown Series” with the first WOD tonight beginning at 6:30pm.  Just a reminder that there will not be any regular 6:30pm class on Friday nights for the remainder of the summer.  The Wanna Throwdown Series will be held on the following dates:

  1. June 28
  2. July 12
  3. July 19
  4. July 26
  5. August 2

The cost to participate is $20 and you can pay by donating to CrossFit Boston’s Hope page.  More details about the Wanna Throwdown Series can be read here.

4th of July Schedule

We will be having regular classes on Wednesday, July 3.  On Thursday for 4th of July, we will be having one workout at 11am.  We are still working on details for a bar-b-que on site afterwards.  If we are not able to grill, then we will host a potluck afterwards.  Either way, you can bank on being able to hang with friends and family after a tackling a Hero WOD.  Which Hero????

12pm
4:30pm
5:30pm
