The Chief – Anniversary Workout!

How did The Chief become the anniversary workout?

In the summer of 2010 Roots hosted its Grand Opening on a Saturday at their small location on Pearl Street. We had food and music and people on hand to talk about the gym, and of course, you could try out a workout. 

In search of a workout that would be accessible (and safe) to anyone who walked in off the street we scoured the mainsite for a workout that was scalable in many ways. And that’s when we came across The Chief. 

The interval style of workout allowed for us to scale rounds for new folks while simultaneously offering a blisteringly challenging workout to current members. 

This workout is a great example of the art of programming. Enjoy!
