We hope everyone’s functional fitness training came in handy during Winter Storm Jonas; a big thank you to all the coaches and members who braved the weather to WOD with us that weekend!
Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow and predicts an early Spring which will be great for our Valentine’s Day WOD, Spring events, training and upcoming runs.
And with the Spring comes The CrossFit Open Season and this month we will be holding free clinics for a little extra practice to get ready for the moves that we know we will see in the Open WODs – double unders, hand stand push-ups, pull-ups, muscle-ups and high repetition olympic lifting.
So read below to see what is coming up and get filled in on the latest with Main Line CrossFit – Wayne!
See you at the Box,
– Daniel, Merrilee and Dylan

We want to thank everyone for joining us on our journey to a new, bigger and better Main Line CrossFit – Wayne location. The final architectural plans have been submitted and we are waiting for approval from the landlord. We have been hard at work planning how to best use the 5000 sq feet of usable space, and there is a lot to look forward to, including a 100 meter indoor track, 25 ft. climbing ropes, a babysitting room and enough space to coach a large class and barbell club at the same time. In the next few weeks we will get architectural approval, start demolition, and have build out complete for a grand opening in the spring!
Did you forget to make those Valentines Day reservations? Order flowers? Or even worse, forget to buy a gift?
No worries, CrossFit Main Line has you covered.
Bring that lucky someone, even if it only platonic, to the CrossFit Main Line on Sunday, February 14th for a great partner WOD, free babysitting at 9:30, food, mimosas and bloody Mary’s to start the day off right!
