The CrossFit Season is upon us! February 26th kicks off the first of five workouts announced in the 2015 CrossFit Open. More than 300,000+ CrossFitters worldwide will toss their names into the hat and test their fitness. This year CrossFit has introduced both a ‘scaled’ and ‘teen’ division to include all of us that are still improving on our skill work. To help, all month long we will be holding free clinics, at both Boxes, to help everyone with the common movements often seen in The Open; the clean & jerk, the snatch, rowing, double unders, pull-ups and muscle ups.  

In addition to the CrossFit Open, we are improving the Boxes all around this year. Next time you are in take a look, fresh paint is already on the walls and new equipment is arriving every month. In addition to the fresh look, we have hired a CrossFit apparel company to design apparel for the Box throughout the year. The first of which will be ready for the CrossFit Open.

Scroll down and check out all of the awesome stuff coming to the Box in 2015. 

– See you at the Box.

2015 CrossFit Open

It’s that time of year again, The 2015 Reebok CrossFit Open begins at the end of the month. Starting February 15th we are hosting free clinics to help everyone improve on those movements often seen in The Open workouts.

The first workout of The Open will be announced on Thursday, February 26th, and we will be showing the live feed at CFML and CFR5. The released workout will be Friday’s WOD and your scores will be ranked on the CrossFit Games website. Every Friday during the CrossFit Open we will be holding “Friday Night Lights”, an opportunity for all Athletes to encourage and cheer for each other. If you are registered for the Open, please try to attend the 5:30pm WOD time at both Boxes – this will be the time that we will make sure we have plenty of judges and we can go all-out in the workouts.  Even if your not planning on registering stop by and cheer on your fellow Box-mates.  If you have any questions, please ask a Coach.

#sweatALERT‬: Did you hear our studio of the month is CrossFit Main Line and CrossFit R5? We’re setting up shop at the R5 location in Devon on Saturdays at 11:45am for a complimentary on-ramp class!

Owners Daniel and Merrilee will be coaching you each Saturday in February through this class which is perfect for beginners. You’ll have a chance to focus on form and the fundamentals of CrossFit, followed by a segmented WOD (workout of the day) to implement what you learned. There’s no need to sign up, just bring yourself (and maybe a sweat date buddy). We can’t wait to see you there!

We are heading back to where it all started…

The permits are final and CrossFit headquarters has signed off. Join us every Saturday this July and August in Avalon, New Jersey for WODs on the beach.  More info to come…..
