The Q:

Gateway Middle School


boot camp, Maumee

Using the Iron Pax Challenge as the spark, The Foundry is an AO designed to help provide a tremendous push and systematically track progress for PAX members. This AO will have 8-12 week “seasons”. Workout Q’s will design a #RAK beatdown with a measurable component (AMRAP, complete for time) and pre-blast it. Results will be recorded, and the workout will be repeated 4-6 weeks later for comparison sake.

All PAX are welcome regardless of fitness levels. The workouts are meant to push anyone of any fitness level way out of their comfort zone and get better. No man will be left behind and no man will be left where we found him.

The pre-blast makes sure everyone knows what they are in for and also allows for those who can’t make it to Black Ops the beatdown at a place and time of their choosing.
