“KIP OR TREAT!”

Written by CrossFit Foggy Bottom on . Posted in Events, WODs

Join Michael Lorenzen this Saturday at 9am for work on your kip!  Have an opportunity to break down your mechanics and focus on better efficiency whether applied to pull-ups, toes to bar, or muscle-ups.  Perfecting your hollow body swing and doing this well is essential for efficiency.  We all can use more work on better activating our hips in the swing!  All levels welcome.  This will be held in conjunction with the 9am class at our Thomas Circle location.

 This 9am class and workshop are the perfect Warm-up to the Scavenger Hunt.  Everyone who is participating in the hunt…. Should aim to work with Michael beforehand if you’re able to “swing” it(pun intended). Stay tuned for more events, seminars, parties, and overall Balance Funitude.

We will be heading out there to soak up some sun, BBQ, go tubing, light up a bonfire, camp, and of course work out!! RSVP HERE! We can figure out car pooling as the date approaches!!
  • July 19th!! Sandy Springs Adventure Park!!!!  – If you get to two CrossFit events this year, make it the Farm Party and this one. If you only make it to one, make it this one. We are heading to an outdoor ropes course for the day to challenge our mind and body. RSVP HERE! We will also figure out carpooling as the date approaches!
