Iron October is this Saturday!

This Saturday is Iron October! If you are new around here and don’t know, Iron October is a competition that we host for local gyms to send athletes of all skill levels (AND AGES) to compete in four unknown workouts. This year we are happy to be using Iron October to benefit at-risk youth and have already raised close to $6000 for The Overcome Project (learn more at theovercomeproj.org).

We still need volunteers and would love to have any of you that are willing come help out… and the rest of you; come cheer on the athletes, shop the vendors, and hang out with friends this Saturday from 9-5. No entry fee for spectators.

Friday classes 3, 4, 5, 6 PM and Saturday at 10 am are cancelled.
