Verve will have a few visitor’s in the gym today, along with A TON of stuff happening this week and next:

*This morning, during our early Open Gym time (10am-11:30am) folks from CrossFit HQ will be filming some videos. They will need the gym to be quiet. During this Open Gym time we will not be playing music, we will also ask that you not drop bars or use the assault bikes. We apologize for this brief and temporary situation.
