(Ropes will be provided. Just bring your fine self for a fun and enjoyable jump rope learning experience!)

Wednesday, Oct 9th at 7:30 pm Austin Cohen "Eliteness" workshop. The workshop is all based on Austin Cohen's experience with CrossFit Games athletes and things they are doing to be their best. He wrote a book with Emily Bridgers about these strategies BUT at the workshop we make it hands on in-house. Eliteness is the act of breaking through your barriers and moving beyond the capacity you think you are capable of achieving. Eliteness is not a hierarchy or status but more about taking what the top athletes do in their journey to becoming elite and integrating it into your life—the every day.
