The Whole Life Challenge starts next month!

Can eight weeks change your life? Absolutely. From September 15 to November 10, CrossFit Midtown and other affiliates around the world will be buckling down to make positive changes and create healthy habits for ourselves. Read more here.
YES, eight weeks is a long time. But this challenge isn’t about eating perfectly paleo for 56 days. It’s about holding yourself accountable, tracking your behavior (workouts, nutrition, supplements, mobility) and IDEALLY, creating some healthy habits for yourself.
We’ll be having a Whole Life Challenge orientation at the gym in early September, to answer questions, discuss things like grocery shopping and meal planning, and set you up for success for this eight-week period. Registration opens August 15.

New classes

For the month of August, we’re trying out an 8pm class on MONDAY & WEDNESDAY nights. We’ll also add a 4pm class on Fridays. The 7pm Friday class has been cancelled due to very low attendance. If attendance is good, we’ll keep the classes on the schedule.

31 Heroes

This Saturday is the 31 Heroes Fundraiser WOD at 10 am. It’s a fun 31-minute partner WOD. If you don’t have a partner, don’t worry about it! Check out the link on the sidebar of this page to register. Dyer has offered to bring post-WOD adult refreshments. THEN we’ll head down the street to Ri-Ra…

Olympics Watch Party

This weekend: Sat, August 4th, 1-5pm at Rira Irish Pub. Get to know your fellow CFMers outside the gym as we watch some Olympics coverage of weightlifting, rowing, swimming, volleyball and more. THEN the party rolls right into URAN DAY… Uran’s bday celebration is Saturday night at Cypress Street Pint & Plate.

Baio shows the AirDyne who’s boss.

    Oh Lis, you already know me so well 🙂 Thank you for the birthday plug! And I didn't even have to ASK you to do that.

    CFM – She's right! Saturday is URAN DAY! And because there's nothing I care about quite as much as my own birthday, I hope you'll all pace yourselves at RiRa so you can keep the party going over at Cypress with me later. 🙂

    • Lis Saunders says:

      We're both Leos, Uran. I got you, girl 🙂 … and on that note, folks, SAVE THE DATE for my bday party on Saturday, August 25. Venue yet to be determined (based mainly on whether i can find a place in the highlands or midtown that will allow me to sing karaoke…and specifically baby got back…perhaps also shoop, lodi dodi, and parents just dont understand), but it's BOUND TO BE an awesome time.

      I"ll make the best attempt possible Uran. However, I am now a lightweight.
      Lis, The party will be epic, but worries me is your bday wod will be brutal.

    • Urán Piedra says:

      I will be there! Also, I'll be coming back from Costa Rica just two days before then, so I'll probably need a brutal birthday wod.
