Adult Boxing Class- Saturday, December 5th and Saturday, December 19th @ 830am! RSVP by putting your name on the board, telling Court or emailing info@doghousecrossfit.com


8pm CLASS NOW OFFERED MONDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHTS! Because the 6pm & 7pm classes tend to be very large and crowded, we asked a handful of our evening goers and there was a big demand for an 8pm class. We're hoping this aleviates some of the overcrowding and allows everyone to train optimally. 


Ready to get started with us? 

We will be starting up a new Meat & Potato class on Monday, December 7th. This class will be a committed group that meets MWF @ 7pm for 4 weeks. If you are interested in training in the morning, email us this week as we're coordinating a morning session as well. 

If you're interested in joining, email us at info@doghousecrossfit.com

We will begin a new cycle beginning November 2nd that will feature 4 workouts per week on the website under the CrossFit WOD with the option of a 4th day of training. We are training for the January 16th competition with Charleston-Mattoon Weightlifting Club on our calendar (we will carpool and likely make a weekend out of it, book rooms etc). Registration info will be made available as soon as it's released. If you want to compete, you need to commit to training 3x per week minimum beginning in November.  

Individual programming is available as well. Contact Court to discuss pricing and details at courtney@doghousecrossfit.com 



**For the next 3 weeks, we will have an optional/highly encouraged  "Dog House Warm-Up" written on the board for those who like to get to the gym early and want to a) get started early b) warm up more thoroughly and/or c) simply do MORE.
