What Peloton is Missing!

What Peloton is Missing!

Even if you didn’t know what Peloton was before...I bet you do now! While they’ve been in the news lately for a controversial ad (and Ryan Reynold's ad in response), I saw an article about short-seller Citron predicting the bike/treadmill company’s stock to fall to $5...

The VALUE of a Gym Membership

The VALUE of a Gym Membership

The old cliche, “You get what you pay for” is certainly true when choosing a gym. You could pay less and go someplace else, but the value is just not there. At a CrossFit gym you aren’t paying for access to equipment, you are valuing your health, your safety, your...

Hate spending hours on the treadmill?

Hate spending hours on the treadmill?
