Who is Level 2?

We have some athletes that can never seem to get enough, if that is the case for you, then listen up!  We will be holding a Level 2 testing date on April 17th, that gives you four weeks to work on your technical lifts (overhead squat, snatch, clean, etc.) and of course 30 second true L-Sit!  If you have been avoiding the O-lifting class you just might want to put that on top of your priority list. We will also be holding Level 1 testing April 17th.  We’ll have a place in the gym for sign ups, so be sure to get your name on the list.  The testing times will be on the board at the gym and we will also be doing another blog post the week before as a reminder.  I don’t really want to call folks out on the testing (Wade who has a 51sec Legit L-Sit) so I wont.  Check out these photos of John Fragoso, one of our top Level 2 athletes.
