It’s nearly winter and our time for fun in the sun is dwindling but not to worry! We have some ideas for you! Lifting and CrossFit are great ways to stay physically and mentally healthy year-round. Lifting promotes fat free body mass, increased bone density and your ability to perform daily tasks, and it improves your quality of life.
CrossFit is a great way to work out within a community. Many gyms offer free introductory classes. Grab some classmates and try a free class this week! Fight the stress of finals by fueling your fitness goals with a new workout regimen.
Through December 15 district 6 will be running a contest. Post a photo on Instagram of you and your friends lifting or participating in a CrossFit class. Tag @asdadistrict6 and hashtag #district6lifts to win a prize! Happy lifting and remember success expands beyond the classroom. Go out there and crush some goals!!!
