Happy Thanksgiving!


Once again, the masterminds at CrossFit DC finds themselves ready and willing to deliver yet another epic Thanksgiving Day beat down for your holiday enjoyment.

CFDC’S Fifth Annual Thanksgiving Day
Hero & a Girl” Workout
9:30am, Thursday November 26th

Whether you’re looking to earn your feast for the day, or simply escape from family for a bit, we’ve got you covered. As is tradition, the Thanksgiving Day workout will combine one Hero workout with one Girl workout.

Now, of course, if we came clean this early with exactly which Hero and Girl workouts we’d chosen, a number of you might inexplicably develop an earlier dinner time. As such, the final workout details will only be revealed upon arrival at the gym. However, we can tell you all that it’s a partner workout, so you won’t be alone in your suffe…celebrating.

We’re planning on running the class according to a weekend schedule (read: 90minutes long), and there’ll be plenty of scaling options to suit everyone. So bring an appetite for destruction so you can work up an appetite for digestion!
