Coach Eddie is celebrating 2 years since starting CrossFit this week. His inspiring post is below. Have you taken class with him yet?WOD with him Wednesday nights at 6 and 7!

I turn 2 with #crossfit this week. The biggest point of performance I could ever take away, is to endure. Embrace the suck. Because how you do anything, is how you do everything. Give me the challenges. Give me the failures. Give me the ability to inspire others. Give me the madness.
“Without a little madness, I wouldn’t be able to feel. And if I can’t feel, then I’ll lose my mind. And if I lose my mind, then I’ll lose my words. This is how I love. Madly enough to lose myself, and feel all the things I can’t put into words.” #niketraining #metcon #crossfit #getfitordietrying #endure #standards #stance #logoin

CrossFit Route 1 Family,

We are very proud and excited to be holding a very special kettlebells4kids fundraising WOD on Today, August 25th. The WOD will be held in every regularly scheduled class, and will be quick and fun – we promise!

kettlebells4kids supports organizations that provide opportunites for homeless children to strengthen theirphysical, social, and emotional skills, which in turn improves their ability to overcome adversity.

kettlebells4kids has set the aggressive goal of raising $2.5 million, with each dollar representing each of the 2.5 million homeless children in the US.

Specifially, there are over 31,000 homeless children in Massachusetts.

Our goal at CrossFit Route 1? TO RAISE $1,000. With an average of 80 athletes in attendance on Tuesdays, we know this goal is within reach!

Support kettlebells4kids by making a tax-deductible donation to our team. You can either bring CASH (no checks!) with you to class, or here on this page. The process is fast, easy, and secure… and you can be sure that it will benefit a great cause!
