Register Now for Next Level Weightlifting Cycle!
Next Level Weightlifting Cycle is an Olympic lifting program focused on the development of the Snatch, the Clean, and the Jerk. Think of it as an Olympic lifting version of our popular Starting Strength Program cycles. During this 8 week cycle led by Coach Frank Murray, there will be a heavy focus on strength and technique. Outside of the Olympic lifts, we will train the Squat, Press, and Deadlift to develop the prerequisite strength required to lift big!
Weightlifting is more than just technique. It is the combination of strength, mobility, coordination, and power. We will work to enhance all of these abilities to maximize the Olympic lifts as well as overall fitness.
The benefit of Next Level Weightlifting Cycle that it trains a wide range of modalities. The skills and strength developed over these 8 weeks will transfer directly to CrossFit and your overall fitness.

Tonight: Movie Night!
“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
With that seven-word maxim, US-based journalist Michael Pollan (The Omnivore’s Dilemma) distills a career’s worth of reporting into a prescription for reversing the damage being done to people’s health by today’s industrially driven Western diet. In Defense of Food debunks the daily media barrage of conflicting claims about nutrition. Traveling the globe and exploring the supermarket aisles to illustrate the principles of his bestselling “eater’s manifesto,” Pollan offers a clear answer to one of the most confounding and urgent questions of our time: What should I eat to be healthy?
Join us tonight at 8pm sharp (after Open Gym) for a showing of In Defense Of Food. All are welcome. Bring friends! This event is BYOB and snacks.
