Tuesday, September 22

The GR Games are this Saturday and Sunday at 8th Day Gym in downtown Grand Rapids. We have a few teams competing on Saturday and Sunday so we will not have class on Saturday. Head over to 8th Day to show your support for your fellow athletes and experience a CrossFit competition first-hand.


Most of us want to eat healthy all of the time, but sometimes life gets in the way. It’s not always easy to make the best food choices and one of the biggest excuses I hear is that it is expensive. You’re right, eating perfectly can be expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. Just like most other things, a little hard work can reduce the monetary cost of the endeavor. Check out this article from organic farmer Joe Pimentel on how you can eat real food for cheap. Like he says, “Eating a proper diet – while hydrating properly and exercising a bit – could save you HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS in future medical/prescription fees.”
