Cool Cruel Summer Kicks Off Thursday!

It’s coming!  Just two more days until the FIRST Cool Cruel Summer of 2014!  Any guesses on the workout??  New this year, we’re going to drop ALL FOUR Cool Cruel Summer workouts so you know what to expect each month.

And we’ve got a great line up of folks coming out for some of the Thursday events including Suerte Tequila.

Never done the Cool Cruel Summer Series?  Check out the details below!

What is the Cool Cruel Summer Series?
Every summer, from the months of May though August, join us at the shop on the third Thursday of each month for the benchmark series, drinks, socializing, and fun under the summer sun.

What’s with the workouts in the series? 
It’s a series of four CrossFit benchmark workouts that span the many different aspects of CrossFit including everything from strength to gymnastics movements, short to long time domains, to AMRAPs and for time workouts.  The programming for these four workouts will no doubt be broad, general, and inclusive.

Why should I do the series?
Because it’s fun!  The series is about getting everyone together to do a workout, meet folks who come at different class times, and trying to hit new PRs.

How do I do it?
Just sign-up for the class on MBO.  Similar to The Open, you’ll show up anytime between 4 and 6:30, put yourself in a heat, and do the workout with your fellow Roots Crew.   Afterward, join in the socializing and fun.

What if I’ve only been doing this CrossFit thing for a few months?
PERFECT!  Come do a workout, meet folks, and hang out.

If I can’t make the workout can I come hangout?  
Totally.

What will the workout be?
The workouts will be announced on Thursday of this week.

Will this also be the workout of the day at CrossFit Roots for the earlier group classes?
No.

What’s the Deal with the Food?
For the first month, we’ll kick it off with a solid happy hour.  In the following months of the summer we’ll have food sign-ups.  Stay tuned.

What’s with the PaleoPong?
First introduced at Spring Fling, Paleo Pong combines and trains MANY of CrossFit’s 10 General Physical Skills: accuracy, agility, balance, and coordination.
