We honor him today in our 9am class. We are not having a CrossFit class at 9am, instead the Montana Mighty Rucks are taking over the gym with the Manion Hero Ruck Workout. Please join the Club Leaders, Meg and Kerri. You don't beed to bring anything, but if you have a ruck pack with some weight, please wear it.
You can support the Travis Manion Foundation by registering for the workout.
You can also earn a special GORUCK Manion Hero Patch.
WOOHOOOO! We made it to Friday! Are you ready for the weekend?
I'm inspired from my recent trip to Florida to share with you a recipe that was on the menu in nearly every restaurant, Shrimp and Grits.
Shrimp and grits is a great weekend brunch recipe and is actually not that hard to make. Check out this pretty easy version from Bobby Flay of the Food Network. Click on the image for the recipe.
Get Ready For PODIUM WEEK Next Week!
Eight Badass Babes from True Spirit CrossFit attended the GORUCK/SANDLOT Fitness Festival in Jacksonville, Florida. We all attend the festival for different reasons and we all learned something about ourselves and each other.
All this week I am sharing their stories with you. I hope you're inspired to join our Montana Mighty Rucks GORUCK Club and to join us for our weekly rucks and monthly workouts.
Today, Cari and Heather, two badass moms in different stages of motherhood, share the importance of setting the example of fitness for your kids and why moms need to get away to Florida with friends.
Are you having FOMO about all the GORUCK fun Meg, Kerri, Faith, Heather, Cari, Anne, Eilissa, and I had in Florida? NOT TO WORRY!
YOU can earn your first GORUCK patch this Saturday when the Montana Mighty Rucks GORUCK Club takes over the 9am class for a ruck fundraiser memorial workout.
Meg and Kerri are leading the Manion Hero ruck workout this Saturday at 9am. You don't need any ruck experience to join them. All you need is a willingness to walk with weight and do some squats.
