  • Swimming Wods take place on the first and third Monday of each month at 8pm at the Garfield Boys and Girls Club.  Our swim WODs are coached by a certified swim instructor and are a great addition to CrossFit training.  Swim WODs are open level – whether you’re looking to refine technique or even learn swimming basics, our coach can accommodate you.  Each class consists of a swim skill plus a water/land workout.  Cost for members and nonmembers is $20.
  • We do carry supplements at our ACT shop. However, supplements are exactly as they sound – a supplement to your healthy diet. Therefore, we only carry the essentials for recovery: protein, fish oil, bcaa and joint support. The main brand that we carry is MHP (Maximum Human Performance). Don’t hesitate to ask any of the coaches for some guidance and knowledge on supplements.
