Welcome OPT Program Design Seminar

logo-2
We are honored to welcome James FitzGerald  and his students to CrossFit Asheville on March 22nd-24th. James will be teaching a seminar called “OPT CCP Level 1: Program Design.” While we are hosting these guests, regularly scheduled classes will still carry on, as the seminar will be held in the Manual Therapy area of the gym.
With that in mind foot traffic starting with the 7am class on Friday will be rerouted to the gym side only. It is important that the students that are enrolled in these classes can focus, so access to the office will be suspended until the seminars are over. Signs will be posted on the doors to help remind you to avoid the office on this FRIDAY and SATURDAY. Please utilize the toliet on the gym side as much as possible. Locker rooms will be available we just ask that remain quiet to respect those in attendance. We appreciate your cooperation while these seminars are in session!
