What Do I Wear?
Always be prepared for anything. It is likely you will be in grass, on sidewalks, and even on baseball fields, so please wear gloves (although they are not mandatory they are a good idea). Any type of clothing that has moisture wicking technology will help wick sweat away from your body when it's warm and will help keep you cool in hotter weather. In colder months, please layer your clothing to stay warm. If you have any questions, instructors will walk you through the appropriate clothing.
Can I Buy a T-Shirt?
No. T-shirts are given out ONLY to members that have proved to the group and the instructors that they have "earned it"- you can "earn it" by acting selfless, being an exceptional teammate, stepping up as a leader, and keeping a positive attitude when faced with difficult challenges and obstacles.
What About Bad Weather?
We operate in almost any type of weather. The only time class is cancelled is when the wind chill is 0 degrees F or below, icy road conditions, or if lightening strikes. E-mail and text message alerts are sent from HQ immediately if a class is cancelled.
When Are Classes?
What If I Have an Old Injury?
Please notify an instructor of any old injuries, disabilities, allergies, or anything that could affect your well-being or the well-being of others on your team. This does not limit you from taking part but it allows our instructors to ensure the safety of every member.
How Do I Get the Schedule?
The class schedule and locations are sent out via e-mail and a mobile app monthly with weekly reminders.
What Should I Expect?
You should expect a kicka** workout and a unique experience. Remember, it doesn't matter what level fitness you are at- show up with an open mind, positive attitude, and the willingness to push yourself and you'll do great. You can expect the team to arrive at least 5-10 minutes early and for the workout to start promptly at 5:45 AM. Our workouts incorporate running, climbing, crawling, calisthenics, teamwork, leadership and a few other fun things. You can expect to get dirty and sweaty. You will never have 2 workouts the same, so you can expect a lot of unique classes.
