A gym that sees as much hard work, and hard use, as ours needs a little TLC now and again. Let’s face it, an awful lot of unadulterated fitness goes down at CrossFit West Santa Cruz on a daily, hourly actually, basis, and the old girl needs a little love at times. Airdynes grind to a halt, boxes get a little wobbly, paint gets all scuffed up, rowers accumulate dust, and even with nightly cleaning chalk dust gets everywhere. Even the hardy stall mats that take an incredible amount of abuse shrink and expand with the cold and heat of the seasons and need some help. Pullup and squat rigs get whiter by the day as chalk prints and big AMRAP counting lines of chalk cover them. Basically, that sweet welcoming gym that we all love–that place where everyone knows your name–is looking a little peaked, and it’s our turn to give back. Most gyms charge an annual fee for facility improvement, but we are going to pay you instead. Food and drink, and I am talking about beer, the original post-WOD recovery drink, will be provided to any and all who come help out. So, to make a long post short, please join us at 10am this Sunday, the 24th, for our annual gym beautification day. The regular Open Gym is canceled for the day.
