This Sunday 2/10 and Sunday 2/24 the gym will be hosting 2 events promoting women’s empowerment. This Sunday, myself and the other folks who facilitate Recover-Strong at CrossFit Sirius will use the Recover-Strong methodology to illustrate how high intensity workouts, challenging exercises, and weightlifting can empower anyone when done properly and put into the proper perspective. On 2/24 “Sacred Sweat”, a different format of exercise combined with yoga and meditation will be used similarly. The “two-four” or “24” hour club, a non profit safe haven for people who need a safe place to stay, is the organization that chose Sirius to host the two events. I believe the money used to book the gym and promote women’s empowerment originated through a grant from the Dallas Mavericks basketball organization. Pretty cool imo.
- 12:30pm-3:30pm is the time we’ve reserved for both events, although they may not run a full 3 hours
- NO Stretch class on those 2 Sundays, but you can embrace February Flexibility by using the 2 poses/stretches we’ve posted on Social Media, and anything else, to loosen up and become “supple”, like a “leapord” ***I will high five you if you got that reference quickly
