EPCC Intramurals will offer students a chance to show off their athletic prowess.
The department will hold a CrossFit training event at the Valle Verde campus cafeteria annex on Friday, Oct. 14.
“We’ll be down there showing students on how to use the ropes, pulling the sleds, working with the kettlebells, doing burpees, push-ups and sit-ups, things of that nature,” said Louie Hernandez, Intramural Sports Manager.
“We’ll be taking them through one-on-one-time training sessions. We’ll be giving everybody some water and stuff like that as they finish.”
Anyone looking for a facility in which to get ready for the competition can do so at the college.
EPCC holds CrossFit training sessions at the VV gym on Mondays and Wednesdays from 1 to 2 p.m.
“We take the sled out, we will have the ropes out there, we will have the medicine ball out there and we will go through some of the training session as far as using equipment there,” said Hernandez.
For more information or to participate, go to the Valle Verde gym on the day and time of the event or call 915-831-2567.
