Every year in December, we host our annual "Skinner Memorial WOD" to remember and honor community members we have lost, and raise awareness and money for mental health awareness and suicide prevention.
This year, we are again teaming up with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). We hope you can join us for this community event for a great cause!
Keep reading to get all the details you need for the event. Also below is the t-shirt order form - please order yours by Wednesday, November 30th!

We're holding to tradition yet again this year, with our memorial "Skinner" WOD - which includes all of Brian Skinner's favorite movements.
7 minutes to Establish a 1RM Snatch
AMRAP 14 Minutes:
12 Handstand Push-ups
12 Ab Mat Sit-ups
12 Shoulder to Overhead (155/105)
1 Bar Muscle Up
7 minutes to Establish a 1RM Clean & Jerk
The goal is to complete this workout the way Skinner would - go heavy on the weightlifting portions, and then have a bunch of fun in the middle!
As always, please lift and workout responsibly! We will have multiple coaches on staff to help with all of your scaling needs, and to ensure everyone is safe and has the best time possible.
