Do you have a fitness enthusiast on your holiday shopping list? Give the gift of CrossFit! CrossFit Southie is running a special to help you spread holiday cheer and fitness this gift-giving season. Receive $25 off all gift certificates for monthly CrossFit memberships now through January 15th. These gift certificates can be redeemed by the recipient at any later date. Your friends and family will thank you later when they work of those extra holiday pounds! To purchase gift certificates, please call 617-269-0003, email [email protected] or visit CrossFit Southie at 383 Dorchester Ave. Just simply mention “Caught in Southie” at the time of purchase to receive your holiday discount.

Do you know someone who is looking for a fun group fitness routine, but perhaps a bit too intimidated by CrossFit? Our Bootcamp would make an excellent gift. CrossFit Southie Bootcamp is a community-based, high energy, circuit-style conditioning workout without the use of barbells or high skill gymnastics. This program is more challenging than your average bootcamp, but less intense than general CrossFit. It is great for weight-loss, conditioning, or as a ramp up to regular CrossFit classes.

*These deals can be purchased as a gift, or be redeemed by the buyer. All holiday offers apply exclusively to new members and alumni members who have been inactive for 90+ days.
