Do I Need to Lose Weight to Start CrossFit?

Do I Need to Lose Weight to Start CrossFit?

There is a stigma around CrossFit that it is "hard core" or only for very athletic, already fit people. I fight this stereotype with almost every new person that walks through the door or reaches out via email.  The media images around the CrossFit Games or competitive CrossFit athletes are inspirational, but can sometimes be a deterrent to the very people we can help the most. Don't be intimidated by the workouts or the fitness of those that have done CrossFit for many years. Better health and improved fitness through CrossFit can be had by anyone willing to do the work. At Catacombs, we pride ourselves on meeting athletes where they are when they walk through the door. We are your partner through the journey and our mission is to see you succeed with your health and fitness goals. No matter where you start.

Thank You

Thank You

Thanks to everyone that came out for an awesome evening of trail work with Trails 2000 last night. I'd guess we had well over 20 athletes and almost our entire coaching staff digging, carrying rocks and logs, and clearing trail. We might have even had some fun too. I am proud to be a part of this hard working and civic minded crew. Thanks for using your super powers for good. 

Trail Work this Week

Trail Work this Week

Please remember that this Wednesday is Trail Work night. Come join us to help do our part for Durango's amazing trails. Many of us are CrossFitters second and outdoor enthusiasts first. Let's put our fitness to work toward supporting the outdoors and Trails 2000. If you've lived in Durango for more than about a week or taken advantage of any of the amazing trails around here, you have benefitted from the work of Trails 2000. Now it's our turn to lend a helping hand. 

Introducing Take That!

Introducing Take That!

It is with great excitement that I write today to introduce you to another local business run by our very own Molly (and her husband Chris of course). Take That is a meal prep service that specializes in healthy dinners that you can grab on your way home to easily and economically feed yourself or your family. Even better, you can feel good about it because Molly and Chris prepare everything by hand with locally sourced ingredients and leave out the sugar and artificial ingredients.

What Has Changed...and What Hasn't

What Has Changed...and What Hasn't

There is a lot going on in our Catacombs community right now and I wanted to take the opportunity to answer some questions. As you all know, we are so excited to be moving to our new space at the former Model Tire Store. We will be working on building out this space in the early summer and our best guess is for an August 1 move. In the meantime, we will continue to operate our regular class schedule at our current location.
