150301 Sunday – The Open & CrossFit Strongman
Make sure you check the schedule and REGISTER for class on Sunday. We are running the Open in both Pleasant Hill and Alamo and the classes are limited. Thank you to all the Judges and Volunteers who have committed to helping tomorrow and for the next 5 weeks.
Even though it is Open Season many Diablo Coaches and Members decided to devote a day to learning more about Functional Movement and took the CrossFit Strongman Course. They picked up stones, threw kegs & logs overhead along with loading up Yokes and Farmer handles to move lots of weight across the side yard and parking lot.
