Josh, moving so fast the frame is blurry.

CrossFitters from near and far are invited to attend the CrossFit Open hosted at CrossFit Verve this Saturday from 8:30AM until 1:00PM.  

Be at the gym and checked in no later then 30 minutes prior to your heat.  Sign up here to attend.  Cost is simply a $20 drop-in fee, unless you are a CrossFit Verve athlete.  

The Best Shape of My Life Challenge… nearing completion!

Over the past few days, I've noticed more and more Verve athletes looking their best.  I mean, thinner, more muscle mass, better looking skin, and even happier.  Now it's time to find out if your insides match your good lookin' exteriors.

This Friday and Sunday are your opportunity to get your blood work, pictures, measurements, and a logbook check.  Sign up for blood work is located outside of the office and spaces are limited.  Because of number of people involved in the Challenge, these are the only days that we can collect all the data, so plan ahead.  We can't wait to see the changes you've made!

    You have to hold the weight up during your “rest”…erroneous!!

    In Dayton and did a drop-in WOD with my 64 year old father. 3×5 Backsquats followed by “Death by Burpees”. We were the two lankiest people there by far. Sad I am missing this Saturday’s open! Good luck everyone!!!

    Cherie, I won’t be competing this year (watch out 2012!) but want to volunteer. The Verve family is one of the most alive and accepting I’ve ever encountered and I want to be there to help.
