We had a fabulous turn out for our North Park Grand Opening Event!  I am grateful for the amount of support and enthusiasm we have received from not only our friends and members, but the entire North Park community.  A big thank you to everyone who helped welcome us to the neighborhood, making this an unforgettable event!

We began the day cheering and encouraging those who stepped up to participate in our kettlebell exhibition to benefit Kettlebells4Autism.  It was great to see new and old members alike, test their abilities, showcase their skills and give back to a good cause.   What better way to kick off our day by doing what we love, swinging bells!  This is how it went down…
