Thanks to all who came out to Food as Fuel. Reminder that we now have a NUTRITION tab on the website, so please check it out if you missed Saturday's seminar.
Yesterday's free WOD at lululemon howell mill had an AMAZING turnout of 20 people... So good they want us to make it a regular thing, so stay tuned for details!
