BARBELLS FOR BOOBS

 

Join us today as we all put our efforts in fundraising towards the Barbells for Boobs organization.

 

FUNDRAISE.DETECT.SAVE

 

Why get involved?

 

Change the statistics! Did you know that 1 out of 8 women in the US will develop breast cancer and that 7% of these women will be under the age of 40?

 

Barbells for boobs is a non-profit organization dedicated to the early detection of breast cancer, with an emphasis on women and men under the age of 40.

 

Inspired by athletes everywhere, local communities come together, fundraise, and help us detect potentially life threatening breast cancer occurrences.

 

They aim to provide a way for breast cancer to be detected in its earliest stage in order to prevent a growing and infinitely more serious problem.

 

Their grant program provides funding to breast centers nationally as a resource for thousands of men and women who do not qualify for government funding or other charitable resources in the detection of breast cancer.

 

Barbells for Boobs has been able to successfully provide detection services in many states across the U.S. Our impact has not only raised awareness of the incidence of breast cancer under the age of 40, it has also provided resources to those that typically would not have access to the necessary screening and diagnostic procedures to detect breast cancer.

For Time:

Testimonials

*Courage, inspiration and ambition. While they are simple words to say, their execution is no easy task. I walked into CrossFit Lighthouse I in May of 2014 having exhausted the usual gym routines, home personal trainers and multiple home training video’s. Looking around the facility, I saw members engaged in box jumps, pull ups and jump ropes? I knew this was going to be something unique. What I didn’t expect was to be welcomed, embraced and motivated beyond compare.
The courage I drew upon to begin this training regimen was equally matched by my gym-mates, each with their own story, reasons and at a point in their lives wanting to be better. We arrive at CrossFit after approaching life’s crossroad of personal or professional uncertainty. Some are students, young and eager to build a mind and body, to compete, train or perform. Some are young parents, newly enthusiastic about life and the hopeful legacy they nurture. Others like myself with older children, hoping to recapture some youth, strength and physique. Regardless, our endpoint is the same: good health=good life.
Inspiration predominantly comes from the owners, trainers and the facility. The new modern, state of the art facility of Lighthouse II allow Dan and Jack and their brilliant staff to teach, encourage, motivate and compel each member’s improvement. From barely finishing a WOD scaled to ability, my personal progression to Rx, acquiring skills of double-under jump rope, muscle-ups and the endurance achieved has improved my health immensely. The comradery, friendships, encouragement and insights are the Box’s double bonuses.
Ambition in life transcends all we do. Ambition is fueled by self-confidence and achievement. These two elements begin with a daily dose of discipline which I define as simply doing what you don’t want to do when you don’t want to do it. Having CrossFit in my day clearly puts the remainder of the day in perspective. Regardless of how imaginative or grand your ambitions are, the physical and mental fitness necessary to achieve them for me are encouraged by CrossFit.*
