Dog House Weightlifting Club is kicking off a new training cycle this week! We will train MWF at 5pm (workouts will average around 90 minutes). Courtney will be coaching this group and beginning next Monday (10/29) she will ask that you commit to 3x per week for 8 weeks. This week she is inviting anyone to come try a session or two prior to next week. Tuesdays and Saturdays the group will be encouraged to attend regular CrossFit classes if they wish. You do not have to be a competitive lifter to do this. It's open to all members however a commitment is required. 

Workouts will be available on the website beginning next week. This week Court will introduce each workout whiteboard style at the gym. Questions? Contact Court directly at courtney@doghousecrossfit.com.
