In case you missed what’s been going on lately here at #TorqueNation …
Friday September 16, we hosted our 3rd annual fundraising event for kettlebells4kids.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with k4k; the idea was born right here at CrossFit Torque back in 2014 and has grown through the cultivation from member Amie Owens into a nationally know fundraising effort in the CrossFit community. To date, CrossFit Torque has raised over $20,000 for this non-profit in three years!
This past Friday, we had over 40 athletes join us for a 9 min AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) of 9 kettlebell swings (no surprise there), 9 burpees, 9 kettlebell swings, and 9 box jumps. The goal is to get as many rounds and reps completed within the 9 minutes. This workout was created by CrossFit Torque owner Amanda, and Owner of CrossFit New England Ben Bergeron back in 2015.
We had plenty of family and friends join us for this grueling workout: mother and son, mother and daughter, father and daughter, father and son, mother-in-laws, siblings, boyfriend and girlfriend, friends of members, newer members, and coaches. What more could you ask for for a community driven event?
To top it all off, we enjoyed FitVine wine (post-workout), graciously donated by FitVine for our enjoyment (and donations). If you could not make it, and would like to donate, please head here: https://www.classy.org/fundraise/team?ftid=69437. Donations count towards our page until the end of the year!
