Electricity Shutdown This Weekend
Just so you all know, the Cannon Workshops are due for an annual service for the electric systems. As a result the electricity will be cut for the entire complex across the weekend.
We will still be holding Classic CrossFit, CrossFit Kid, and Olympic Lifting Classes but the showers will be out of order (as they require electricity to operate) and our sound system will be off of some smaller bluetooth speakers.
Apologies for this as this is an annual service that needs to be held from the wider scope of the facilities, but we’re still here for the fitness!
Yoga is Cancelled for the Following Weekends
Due to a bit of unavailability and/or gym closings, Yoga for Athletes will be postponed for the following dates:
Sessions will recommence from October 20th onwards
