Saved by the Barbell
August 31 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am$35
Join us on Saturday, August 31st as we host the Saved by the Barbell WOD!
Saved by the Barbell is an annual, world-wide CrossFit community Labor Day workout and fundraising effort to bring CrossFit to more kids everywhere.
Each year, rates of chronic diseases like type-2 diabetes, obesity, and liver disease – conditions once associated with the sick and elderly – rise among children, from toddlers to teenagers.
And yet each year, more schools reduce their physical education programs. Recess is becoming a thing of the past. Cafeteria food, deeply flawed nutrition education, and sugar-stocked vending machines only contribute to the problem. And schools where children grow up in poverty, food deserts, and disadvantaged communities pose even greater challenges to kids’ health.
Registration for the WOD is a $35 donation, which gets you a t-shirt and access to the CrossFitbtwb worldwide leaderboard. But we encourage everyone to show up and participate in the workout and have a great time, regardless of whether they register or not!
The SBTB WOD is easily modified into a kid-friendly workout, too, so Saturday the 31st can be a day of fun for the whole family and a great community event.
All proceeds from the workout support school teachers, students, parents, coaches, trainers, and administrators building CrossFit programs in their schools and communities.
