31Heroes WOD Hosted by CrossFit Midtown 8/1

Thank you to everyone who participated in the ‪#‎31Heroes‬ workout this weekend. We'd also like to thank those who came out to support and watch (friends, family, and our partners), those who volunteered their time, and to all those who donated to the cause! There is something about laying your sweat and sometimes tears and blood on the floor or rope that commits us to our cause and reminds us of how fortunate we are in our day to day lives. We came together for 31 minutes to honor those who serve and remember those who have fallen. #workouttoremember

MARC PRO Demo

Today 7/21 from 6:30-9am and 10am-1pm we will have David Melendez from Marc Pro giving free muscle recovery and activation sessions (10-30 minutes). There will be 3 stations set up and everyone is encouraged to try out a session before class, after the WOD for a recovery session, or on lunch break from work as part of your rest day recovery.

What is the Marc Pro? The Marc Pro muscle conditioning device creates unique, strong, but completely non-fatiguing muscle contractions that set off a cascading series of physiologic events. We call this a Muscle Activated Recovery Cascade, or “MARC®” for short. To learn more visit MARCPRO.com
