Blog

Thanks for checking out CrossFit Dunbar Cave Lab’s Created in the Lab Blog! Each month Matt writes new blog articles on a variety of topics related to fitness, nutrition, and wellness. Once in a while you may find a coach doing a specialty blog post related to his or her area of expertise.

At the beginning of the month, we feature our new Athlete of the Month, share their picture, and give them a chance to introduce themselves.The Created in the Lab blog is a fun way for members to tell their story and connect and learn more about each other, especially members who may regularly attend different classes.

To stay up-to-date on when we post new blog content, check out our Facebook or Instagram pages. If you have a particular topic that you would like to see in a future article drop us a line on our Contact Us page here. 

For more frequent updates, subscribe to our Friday Five Things email. Once a week we’ll share new local food options, health and nutrition articles, interesting books, and quotes we’re pondering. When you sign up you’ll get an email once every Friday morning dropped straight into your inbox!
