Forge Valley Rally 2020
This is our 1-day fitness throw-down to challenge yourself and have fun with everyone else. This will be a semi-formal event with Heat Times, Workout Lanes and your own personal Judge to hold you accountable to movement standards and help count your reps (Yay, someone else to count!)
This is a fantastic way to see how far you’ve come with your strength and fitness, accomplishing things you never would have thought possible before you started training with us. It’s also a great way to realize your full potential. I always see TONS of people hit big PR’s and perform much above their perceived fitness abilities with the community behind them and adrenaline rushing. Trust me, it will be tons of FUN!!
Now I KNOW this can be very intimidating and a lot of people are hesitant because they feel they aren't ready. I am telling you that if you are able to attend classes regularly with little to no movement substitutions, you will be A-OK. This is coming from the person who has written the workouts and knows the ability of nearly every one of you in this gym, so please trust me when I tell you this :)
You will get 3 workouts for different scored events, and the top 3 teams will go head to head in a final workout.
