Vesak, Hyrox, Victory Grips, Venus Weightlifting and June/July Courses!
It's been a busy month, with a lot of news to share.
Our Hyrox themed public holiday WOD was a great intro session for those who have signed up for the challenge coming to Singapore on Oct 7 . https://hyrox.com/event/hyrox-singapore/
The team of four WOD kicked off with a series of challenging exercises. Sled Push, Sled Pulls, Burpee broad jumps, wall balls, rowing, skiing and farmers carries, each punctuated with 1km team runs between each of the eight stations (each person taking 250meters). Sweat poured, muscles burned, good times were had!
