#9Nation Podcast Episode 12: Introducing Our Gymnastics Class!

Our August Specialty Class is here by popular demand: Gymnastics!

When it comes to all-around coordination, body control, and spatial awareness, gymnasts rule the athletic world.

In CrossFit we might not ask you to do back handsprings, but having a good grasp of the fundamentals can be helpful with nearly every aspect of your movement, bodyweight or not.

Host-Coach Megan sits down with our resident gymnastic specialist, Coach Dane, to talk all about our newest class.

If you're interested, join us Sundays 10:30 AM during August. Be sure to reserve your spot in Wodify, as spots fill up fast! Reservations open 48 hours ahead.

And don't forget our quick announcements about restarting Grit Squad and t-shirt pre-orders.
