Halloween Workout Huge Success!!!!!

The CrossFit Kids Halloween Challenge was a HUGE success! We had 13 kids & teens come out for a pre-Trick-or-Treating workout! They used their nutrition knowledge to sort food pictures into "Protein," "Carb" and "Fat" categories for points, rowed for calories and navigated an obstacle course, and finally raced with pumpkins. More pictures coming soon. Congratulations to Christine and Chase who came in first place and Spencer and Caleb who took second.
