What the what is going on this Saturday at Verve??

Verve is hosting the Steve’s Club Throwdown WOD. It was a workout written by Steve’s Club and will be programmed as our workout of the day for all of Saturday’s classes. Our classes on Saturday will be free classes and open to anyone wanting to participate. The workout is a partner one, so grab a buddy from another gym and spend a Saturday morning together. Got a friend that has never done CrossFit before, they may also join, but please understand and respect that they will be modified in this workout, it’s a hefty one. With these modifications they can still work along side you and join in the support of Steve’s Club.

We simply have two requests:

  1. Please sign up both yourself and any friend you bring with you in MBO so we have an accurate headcount. 
  2. Since classes will be free, we would encourage that you donate the waived drop in fee to Steve’s Club. Click here for their donation site.

What is Steve’s Club??

Steve’s Club provides at-risk youth with fitness, nutrition, and mentorship through CrossFit workouts and engagement with the CrossFit community. In Denver, we serve over 150 kids with the help of 5 gyms around the metro area.
Money raised for our organization goes for a few things.
* Nutrition/Food. A good portion of the kids we engage with have not eaten before they come and workout with us. We like to give them some healthy fuel to help them get through the workout. We are partnering with King Soopers to help with this, but we also need financial support for nutrition.
* Mentorship/Camp. Every year the national Steve’s Club organization hosts a camp. We like to be able to fly as many kids as we can afford to that camp. This is a life changing experience for the kids.
* Fitness/Equipment. We rely on the kindness of the CrossFit community to loan us equipment. We would like to be able to own some equipment so that we can travel with to locations that don’t have equipment on site and engage kids there.

If you are coming in to Verve Saturday, then you will already be a part of supporting this amazing organization. If you wish to support further, you can donate on their website, click here.

Got plans Saturday night?? You do now. Steve’s Club is hosting an after party at The Squire Lounge in downtown Denver, click here for the Facebook invite. Music will be provided by the Reminders. And the drinks specials will be flowing.

Looks like it’s going to be a busy little Saturday, not sure if you’ll have time for it all. 😉
