CrossFit 10-2 Celebrates One Year of Fitness and Fun
When it comes to staying fit and healthy in Leadville there are lots options, many of them right out your back door. But when the winter cold sets in, it can be challenging to motivate yourself to get out into the stormy weather. So it’s good to have an indoor option, considering how long some of those winter months can last!
Lucky for local residents there’s CrossFit 10-2, which celebrated one year of helping folks accomplish their fitness goals in Leadville last week. Chances are, you may have seen their sign along Highway 24, south of town (615 Hwy 24 S Unit D), near the Millennium Towing offices and Colorado Department of Transportation garage. The gym is located behind these two buildings, in what may look more like an industrial park than a fitness center. But don’t let that fool you.
In fact, CrossFit 10-2 members will tell you that one of the biggest attributes to this local gym is its supportive, family-friendly atmosphere. So don’t let the big, sterile machines, clunky weights and heavy lifting fool you . . . or discourage you from checking them out!
