Tommy V made the cut for last years Cool Cruel Summer. What will make it this year?

Cool Cruel Summer Begins Next Week!

Our 2015 Cool Cruel Summer series begins next Thursday!  In May we asked you to vote for the workouts that you would like to see this year.  We listened and made our selections, and we will be releasing them next week!

Similar to years past we will have food and we encourage everyone to participate or at least swing by and hangout.  There is no scoring or judging in this series, it’s all for fun, to get in a great workout, and to celebrate with a drink afterwards.

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

What is the Cool Cruel Summer Series?
Every summer, for 4 months, 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.   We will have a Warmup Coach on hand but you’ll be responsible for warming yourself up before your heat begins.  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? 

What will the workout be?
The workouts will be announced next week.

Will this also be the workout of the day at CrossFit Roots for the earlier group classes?

What’s the deal with the Food?
We will have food for pre-order each week.  Watch the blog for the sign-up link.

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.
