Our Summer Recharge starts next week! Sign up for our FREE members-only Nutrition Seminar (this SATURDAY, 12-2pm!) on Mindbodyunder “Seminars.”

Nutrition is an ever-evolving field of study, but at the heart of the matter are two simple truths:

1) “Nothing will work unless you do”, and

2) It (usually) takes a village – community support is crucial to helping you set AND accomplish your goals!

Committing to a change is simple – actually seeing it through is the tough part. It’s one of the reasons that the community at CrossFit Center City is so strong – we know that we have each other’s backs, whether it’s on the final sprint of a 2K row or straining to get the bar up on a max effort deadlift. 

Whether you’ve never before considered changing the way you eat, whether you’ve tried and failed to see it through, or whether you’re continuing happily on the road to greatness, check out how Recharge works here and put your name in the ring! This Challenge has evolved quite a bit over the past years, but one theme is evident throughout – the people who complete it feel and look pretty awesome!
