We're a little more than one week into the new year. How many of you are sticking to your New Year's Resolutions to exercise more? This year more and more people are finding out about CrossFit.
Coaches at Shenandoah CrossFit in Winchester say it's the sport of fitness incorporating functional movements at high intensities. Meaning the workouts simulate actual movements you would do in real life, such as picking up a couch to move it. On Saturday December 12th, they're having a fundraiser for the Sandy Hook Memorial Fund.
"It's a big part of what CrossFit is being involved in the community whether it's our immediate community or another community like ours that is suffering from a tragedy," said Shenandoah CrossFit Coach Jessica Gustafson. "We do a lot of fundraisers for military families that are suffering from a loss especially back in August 2011 with the 31 heroes that died in the helicopter crash in Afghanistan. There's now a big movement for those kinds of charities so it's always been a foundational basis of CrossFit and so when this happened a lot of places thought the Newtown Memorial Fund would be a good one to donated money to."
Anyone can come out Saturday. You don't have to have a membership with Shenandoah CrossFit. You don't even have to have any experience. There's even a modified kids workout.
