Labor Day Beach WOD was a great time! Thanks to everyone who came out to endure an old fashioned beach P.T. We hope you all had a great holiday weekend are anxious to get back in the gym this week!


We are adding 5pm "Barbell Basics" to the schedule on Thursday evenings! This class is perfect for our less experienced crowd or for those of you who really need to work on the basics of the lifts. We will continue to offer 6pm "Olympic Lifting" where the focus will be refining technique while throwing some weight around. 


THE TRODO OPEN IS THIS SATURDAY at 10am! Start forming your teams of 4 and check out the workout on the Trodo Site (link below). Take a risk, be vulnerable, and be a part of the fun this weekend!

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 will resume Sunday, Sept 7th at 11am. At this time fall session is currently full however we are adding kids to the waitlist. To be added to the waitlist or for questions regarding class email us at doghousecrossfitkidsboxingclub@yahoo.com. Check recent photos on our class flickr page to see our kids in action!
