Dear Roots Crew, 


March proved to be a special month as the CrossFit Open Thursday Night Throwdowns grew to epic numbers and CrossFit Roots hosted the LIVE broadcast of CrossFit Open workout 13.3.


A huge thank you to our volunteers and everyone that helped make the event a huge success.  We've said it before,
but we'll say it again - we were honored to have been asked to host the event and were overwhelmed with excitement to see the Denver-area CrossFit community come together to cheer on Kristan Clever and Talayna Fortunato.


If you missed the live action, archived footage can be found here.


And now we move on to spring!  In this issue we cover a BUNCH of upcoming events and programs.  Be sure to read through the Hot Happenings section so you catch all the details on the food challenge, Oly meet, and the return of the Cool Cruel Summer Series.

The Thursday Night Throwdowns keep getting bigger, better, and more exciting. Don't miss out on 13.5 this week complete with Nick n' Willy's wings. Sign-up for wings at the front desk by today!



Break it down for me.
CrossFit is a back-to-basics, no gimmicks, strength and conditioning fitness program. Constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity are the foundation of our program.  

Ah, what?

We know, it can sound complicated.  To find out more, go here
