This post is a bit long, but very important. After some observation and thought, we will be trying a new gym hour format in the evening (currently only the evening). We will be having structured start times for WODs. Don't confuse structure times with set class times. WOD start times will be determined by the amount of time warm up, strength, and WODs take. Day to day WODs can start on the hour, 45 minute, or half hour. It will be posted on the board how often WODs are starting. For example, if you come into the gym at 4:50pm and the next WOD time starts at 5pm, you will have from 4:50pm to 5:29pm to get your warm up, strength, and set up for the WOD (for example have your barbell figured out and loaded, kettle bell ready, box jump, nervous pee done, shoes changed, etc) ready for the 3-2-1 at 5:30pm. We value everyone's time and hope structure WOD times creates efficiency in getting people through the evening. This new structure times will start tomorrow. Yes. Friday. We ask for your patience and understanding as we work through the kinks and flow.
