3rd Annual Forte- Only Partner Competition, August 27th  This members only competition has been a blast in years past, so let’s do it again! There will be men and women’s Rx and scaled divisions (sorry, no mixed teams). This is a great opportunity to get a mid-year check point on your performance goals for the year, ease into trying out competing, and to motivate you to train for an event! Regardless of your time and experience with us at Forte, we HIGHLY encourage all to participate. As with class, all of the workouts will be scalable regardless of skill level.  If you need a partner, sign up and we will can help assign you to a team. All the workouts will be released in the coming weeks.
