Hold on tight. The Cool Cruel Summer starts Thursday and we want YOU to be in the KNOW!

What is the Cool Cruel Summer?

The Cool Cruel Summer runs throughout the summer on the third Thursday of each month. It’s a fun twist on a normal evening at Roots. The coaches organize waves of athletes to start the workout but there is not a formal class start time. Athletes can come in and do the workout anytime between 4:30 and 6:15pm (with the last wave starting at 6:15pm). The coaching staff is there to help with any questions regarding, warm-ups, scaling, or how to do the workout.

This is a fun, laid back environment that puts the summer fun into an evening at Roots.

And what event would be complete without food and drinks? Please bring a beverage to share and purchase your dinner in advance HERE.
