Get ready Dog House! The Trodo Open is next Saturday, September 6th! The workout has been announced! Check it out on the Trodo website (link below). Start forming your teams of 4 and write them up on the Trodo board this week!

We are a part of a fun Chicago based CrossFit league (Trodo Box League) that holds a Trodo Open workout (workout done in house at the Dog House) and then there is a follow up Trodo Games for teams that want to compete against teams from other gyms. If you are on the fence about taking your CrossFit to the competitive level, Trodo is an amazing, supportive, and fun way to get your feet wet! All experience and ablilty levels are welcome and participation is a HUGE part of our scoring vs. other gyms. We will complete the Open workout at the Dog House during the 10am Team WOD on Sat, Sept. 6th so start forming your teams of 4 today (2 guys, 2 girls).


Kids Boxing Class is cancelled this weekend and will resume Sunday, Sept 7th at 11am. At this time fall session is currently full however we are adding kids to the waitlist.
