Winter Warriors! Let’s Outrun the Coldest Season Together!

When the temperature drops so can our motivation. We are teaming up with Brooks, and Char Fitness Club to challenge ourselves and each other and use movement as a practice to stay mentally and physically healthy and connected to a community of encouragement and support.


The Winter Warrior Challenge will hold you accountable for 8 weeks, giving you that little push to keep moving from the New Year through February. All paces, fitness levels and anyone who needs a little motivation is welcome to participate!


January 1st thru February 28th, 2023

New This Year... in person strength classes, with Rock Tate from Char Fitness Club!

  • The in person Winter Warrior exclusive class will be on Tuesdays at 6:30PM, at Char Fitness Club
  • $99 additional fee - 9 classes (a 50% discount from Char's typical 8 class package) To register, Add-On the class during registration. Space is limited, so do not wait.
  • These 45 minute sessions will focus on daily strength for the "everyday athlete" or in this case "Winter Warrior." The session will begin with a dynamic warm-up and movement prep/explanation followed by 20-25 minutes of resistance training. Every movement we take on will be modified to fit each athlete's abilities so everyone is moving comfortably. The last 5-10 minutes of the session will be spent cooling down and working on mobility. Our mission is to improve our athlete's performance, both mentally and physically, through injury prevention, stability improvement and core strength.
