Contrary to popular belief, summer doesn’t end/autumn begin the day after Labor Day. The actual change from summer to autumn occurs, this year, on Monday 23 September – the *Autumnal Equinox. Fall: apples, cider, hay rides, leaf colors, early morning mists, creamy Fall soups, the Open, daylight savings time ends … (*northern hemisphere)

The saying, “A change is as good as a rest” doesn’t mean ‘stop what you are doing and sit on the sofa’; rather, change what you are doing a little, try something different. If you run all the time, change out one of your runs for a bike day. If walking is your thing, try rowing once in a while. Swim? Try some strength training to improve your stroke pull. Got your own circuit training regime working the same machines and muscles every time? Change it just a little and be amazed.


The Open has changed its timing but not its content. It is still varied, challenging and unknown. However, “THE OPEN IS FOR ANYONE” “People of all ages and ability levels can play.” “CrossFit affiliates or any gym, garage, park or flat space.” Starting October 10th 2019 : Registration is Open


Change and be amazed. Take a step… through our door and our awesomely supportive T2 Coaches and Community will help you. You have several options – Free Trial CrossFit Class, Free Community Class, SWEAT, Cycle, Row Zone:

This week’s food: Roasted Cauliflower Soup courtesy of CrossFit

And let’s face it, most people like a bowl of hot tasty soup on a cool autumnal evening.

Trivia: Cauliflower

“According to Mark Twain “Cauliflower is nothing but a cabbage with a college education.”

“The white, edible portion of cauliflower is called the curd, heart or head.

Those with thyroid problems should avoid eating large amounts of cabbage or cauliflower. They both interfere with the body’s absorption of iodine, needed by the thyroid gland.”

Have a wonderful weekend. … and Halloween is coming 🎃 Be thinking about your workout costume.
