Well the move is real, as most of you may have noticed. We are attempting to move equipment and program workouts in such a way that is cause minimal disruption to Verve’s schedule. With that said, there does have to be some disruption. . . Wednesday February 24th Verve will have an abbreviated schedule. We will have 5:30am, 6:30am, and 7:30am classes. Verve will close it’s doors at 8:30am to do the bulk of the moving the rest of the day. There will be no additional classes, no open gyms, and no competitor hour. If you are interested in getting your sweat on, we could always use some help with the move. So stop by, we will put you to work. 

By doing this our goal is to officially start classes in the new space on Thursday February 25th. This is still a tentative plan, please continue to read the blog post throughout the week to stay current and updated with dates/ times. 

Another big update. . . . the Open starts Thursday the 25th!! Verve will be hosting the Open WODs on Fridays as the daily workout. If you have not yet signed up, click here to get registered. The Open is the best and most fun benchmark to test your fitness against yourself every year as well as hundreds of thousands of people across the world. It’s an opportunity to push yourself, see your progress, and be a part of something that unites so many people worldwide. It’s a very exciting time of year. 

Speaking of signing up for the Open. . . if you are signed up PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE take the Open online Judge’s Course. In order to submit scores for the Open you need to be judged by your peers. If you have the expectation that someone judge’s your Open workout, then it would be a really good idea to be able to return the favor. Is it mandatory? No. Is it beyond incredibly helpful for both your personal knowledge of what does and does not constitute a rep and helpful to your fellow Verve members? YES. It costs $10 and takes about an hour of your time (it’s easier than last year Kaplan, so let’s see if you can pass it this time). Click here for the Judge’s Course.

Have a wonderful weekend!!
