Jon L. writes: “13.2 killed me…fell 10 reps short of my goal (5 rounds). By the end I was rocked but had that smile on my face from ear to ear as I was beaming with accomplishment. This is my second open and the camaraderie and support the gym has for one another is amazing. I have made more friends in the Box since January than I had the entire previous year. 13.3…Bring it on!” Congrats, Jon!

    Are Kevin’s classes being replaced with a new teacher?

    • So far as we know, Kevin is still teaching Kevin’s classes. What makes you ask?
