Battle for the Board

September 17, 2014


Our latest times for Grace have been posted on our leader board. Don’t see your name? Don’t worry–this Saturday, September 20th, you’ll have another chance to get your name on the board. The Battle for the Board will run from 8:00am-10:00am, and all you have to do is sign up on MBO. You’ll have the opportunity to complete one of the name wods with a fellow Body Armor member there to help count your reps and validate your time. The event is open to All Levels of participants as we will offer a scaled version of the wod. We will announce the wod on Saturday, as well as place you in a heat depending on which version of the workout you choose to do. If you have any questions, talk to Jill–and please note, all other classes are canceled for the morning.
