EVENTS

FREE CROSSFIT CLASS – Sat December 8th @9am

The best way to get a real sense of CrossFit is to stop by and take one of our Free classes. Each class includes instruction on basic movements, a CrossFit workout based on those movements, and a further explanation of what we do at MaD. Our goal with this class is to give you a taste of what CrossFit is, so you can see why so many people are hooked.

Although ‘Bring a Friend’ is not our typical Monday – Friday class, you’ll get a feel for the way things run.

Free class for all, does not count as one of your weekly visits.

2018 PCPC is on Saturday Dec 15th

“It was a few days before Christmas and all through the gym, sweaty bodies lay everywhere just trying to get a breath in”

An exaggeration I am sure, but with Christmas nearly upon us it is time to pit yourself (and a friend) against the rest of the members. Then once bragging rights have been settled, we can cook some meat and hang out.

This is a partner challenge so pick carefully.  You get to choose who is on your side for this series of 3 challenges. We plan on 3 separate workouts to test your combined fitness.

There will be 3 categories; Men, Women and Mixed. The events will be achievable by all, so sign up HERE and give it a shot.

We will start at 9am and go until we are done (aiming for before noon) then it is BBQ time. It is members (or spouses and friends who CrossFit if you ask nicely) only to compete in the challenge, but all are welcome to support the partners challenge and at the BBQ. Friends, family and well behaved dogs.

Choose your partner carefully!
