Welcome to 2018. We’re kicking it off in a (few) BIG ways.

Here’s a little teaser on all that is coming up in January and February. Stay tuned to the blog, Facebook, and the Newsletter as we drop all the details. And, if you missed our Blog Revival post yesterday, check it out here!

The Year of the Pull-up

We are proud to introduce, The Year of the Pull-up. Born out of a discussion between EC and Nicole, The Year of the Pull-up will take your pull-up capacity from 0 to 1 or 1 to many. This 12-month program will be free to members, but there is one catch – YOU have to put in the 3x weekly work. Details announced this week!

The Open is Coming

Registration for the 2018 CrossFit Open is just 10 days away! Last year, 170 Roots athletes signed up to take part in this worldwide celebration of fitness. Everyone does The Open for different reasons, but one thing is certain, this is a special five weeks of which you don’t want to miss out. And, we’re excited to announce that the CrossFit Roots Thursday Night Open Show is BACK – complete with special guests and a bonus week!

The 2018 Winter Food Challenge!

Itching for a little reset after the holidays? We are partnering with OptimizeMe Nutrition for a 4-week challenge January 29-Feb 25. It will be a quality-focused challenge in a format we haven’t seen before. And to spur that friendly competition, CrossFit Roots will compete against the three CrossFit ONE Nation affiliates in the Boston, MA area for ultimate gym bragging rights.

We will formally announce the challenge details on the blog on January 8th.
