Group workouts are still going through the winter. Please note that the Tuesday morning Track workouts are switching to Hill workouts. It is likely we will be meeting at Castle Gate at Stevens (off 6th st) for the first few weeks of hill workouts. We’ve also arranged for group yoga at Devotion Yoga. Please see the doodle and add when you will be attending. Don’t be afraid to have a friend or significant other who is not in the club sign up to come along as well (we need full classes for a better price). https://doodle.com/gw7qv89gnd58scn5sgkics8f/admin#table
