SWOLEtember programming is a total-body, five-day per week program.  Every day you’ll hit the same muscle groups, but through different movements.  This program meets the tenets of hypertrophy; frequency, volume and progressive overload.  You’ll find this program in your WODIFY app starting August 31st.  You may perform the in-class CrossFit program or choose to do the SWOLEtember program on your own during the class.  If you have any questions about the movements, you can view them on our Youtube channel or ask the coach for assistance.  

Use hashtag #SWOLETEMBER and tag @train8nine for all post.
