Donna & Julia are competing Sunday in "Battle of the Boroughs" at CrossFit Bell. If you're interested in showing your support, see them or the coaches.

Open Prep is just around the corner. We will be preparing as an overall group. However, if there are specific areas you want extra work on to improve, ask your coaches about working one on one to attain your goals.
