Wednesday, December 5th, 2018 Testing week at Defined!


Third “Testing Phase” of 2018!  Every 4 months we have a 2 week window where we  test many of your core barbell lifts, Girl/Hero WODS, and baseline CFD workouts.

Use these next 2 weeks to either establish and record new numbers or check in with your last testing results.  Each testing element will be a great way to gauge your current conditioning and strength! Recording your numbers for these next 2 weeks is extremely valuable to being accountable to your training and making sure you are growing and progressing in our program.

Last Cycle of 2018 starts on Monday December 10th.
