Level 4 CrossFit Seattle opens Friday, June 1

This holiday weekend saw a building and painting frenzy at the new gym in Fremont. Who knew you could use metalworking and welding skills to build a wall?

Part of the interior has been painted in big blocks of color, and the exterior will be a light color to make it stand out from the trees around it. Differing opinions have been expressed about each of the color choices--so what else is new?

Probably the hardest part of the job in terms of sheer physical labor was digging the ditch for the plumbing. Dave, Mike, Sean, and Scott jackhammered through the slab, and the broken concrete and underlying dirt was excavated and hauled out in a free-for-all of flying shovels, buckets and wheelbarrows. CrossFitters love to dig, right?

Once the bathrooms are completed, who will shed a sentimental tear for the Honey Bucket? Not me.

Be there Friday night for the inaugural workout!
