Ktowners, a new cycle is upon us! Have you ever heard of Christmas creep? Well that is kind of what has happened here. Summer of Squats has somehow crept all the way in to the middle of Spring. I don’t know if I am all that sorry about it though. So many of you have […]

Kipping is something that is common in CrossFit. Unfortunately, good kipping is not as common. At Ktown, we strive to make sure that you are kipping well – keeping your arms long and finding the “hollow” position before explosively opening your hips and pulling your chin over the bar.

Greetings, Ktowners! There has been some interest from a few people about getting a softball team together for a summer league, and I’ve been tasked with getting the ball rolling on that.
