We will be closed Easter Sunday (April 20th)


The next Trodo Box League event is this Saturday! Dog House is a part of a fun Chicago based CrossFit league that provides us with an opportunity to build a better community through comraderie and competition (with eachother and other gyms). The way it works, is that we form teams of four (2 guys, 2 girls) on the big Trodo white board at the gym. If you don't have a team, simply write your name up in the "Free Agent" section on the board and we'll find you a team. We will do the Open workout as a group on Saturday, April 19th during the 10am Team WOD, however if your team cannot make it on Saturday, you may come in and complete the workout anytime! We need as many people participating as possible (participation is 1/3 of the scoring). Being a part of the Trodo Box league is a fun way to compete against other gyms and get new faces out on the competition front lines. The Trodo Games will take place on Saturday, May 17th at CrossFit Illumine and we will send our top scoring team from the Open. We are gauranteed 1 team slot for the Games however we will register as many teams as possible (that want to compete). CHECK OUT THE OPEN WORKOUT HERE.
