Qualified Sweat Shop Athletes!

Props to everyone that participated in the 2021 CrossFit Open!  Super to cool to see lots of first timers participating this year!  And given that this year was only 3 weeks of competition, I’m actually already looking forward to next year, instead of feeling mentally and physically exhausted. In years past, the next level of […]

Healthcare Worker Highlight

Most of the time we highlight things our members do INSIDE the gym… however, in the current situation, we have several healthcare workers that are doing some extremely important things OUTSIDE the gym.  CJ has been a member of the Sweat Shop since 2009, and while he’s a pretty quiet guy that keeps to himself, […]
