Grow physically and spiritually as you train with our world-class coaches and connect with fellow athletes, coaches and box owners! Learn how your faith can bring renewed purpose to your athletic performance, profession and relationships, and steer you in the direction God desires for your life.
Skill sessions expose you to instruction and analysis in all three elements of movement: weightlifting, gymnastics, and monostructural (running, rowing, etc). Reinforce each of the skill types in an inspirational and competitive environment with workouts providing opportunity for application and additional guidance. Up your game as you build safe, efficient and effective technique for a lifetime.
A copy of the Athlete New Testament, a Faith Rx’d T-shirt or tank, wristband, a paleo dinner Saturday night, and renewed perspective how to honor Christ through your training and life are all part of the experience! You’ll also have the opportunity to join an event-specific Facebook group where you can continue to be encouraged by fellow participants and coaches long after the event has concluded!
