We will post to comments on www.crossfitmurphy.com and to the CrossFit Murphy Facebook page if classes are cancelled or will run on a regular schedule. Please check for announcements prior to traveling to the gym.

“When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn’t matter. Am I tired? That doesn’t matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem.”~Emil Zatopek
