It was a great week this last week at CrossFit Preferred! We have a great week of programming this week that will be sure to push you and make you stronger!
We had a great turnout to our all new CrossFit Endurance class! Everybody is welcome to join. We had people out this week that started  CrossFit Endurance that have not run very far in the past that did great! Do not be intimidated by running. Running is a great discipline to improve that will help improve your overall fitness and endurance.
We will be following Aerobic Capacity workouts by Chris Hinshaw. He is a highly respected endurance coach that has been coaching so many of the CrossFit professional and amateurs and is seeing great results. I am excited to coach everybody interested. This will make you a better CrossFit athlete!

The Crucible:

The Crucible 2 is an event for anybody that wants to learn how to push out of their limits and comfort zone. We want to help you unlock your full potential and break down barriers that you didn’t even know existed. The event will begin at 10pm and will come to a close after the sun comes up. We incorporate various exercises that test your entire body, making this the ultimate experience (Crossfit, Rucking, and so much more)!. Will you accept the challenge and be here when the sun comes up?

Stay tuned for a new video that will be out this week!
