Hey friends, it’s finally here! After everyone’s hard work—unofficial WODs full of rubber mat strongman lifts, dry wall kicks, vacuuming for time and actual sandbag carries—Goose Island CrossFit is finally ready to open its doors for a party.

So many of you have been a part of this journey through mentorship, manual labor and moral support, and we want all of our friends and all of your friends to be able to share in the culmination of our efforts.

So, here are a couple ways to join the party this Saturday:

9AM- Free WOD (Workout Of the Day) for all. Whether you’re a part of the Gosse Island CrossFit family, have shared in some part our CrossFit journey, are considering CrossFit, or have no idea what CrossFit is, come join us at 9AM for a fun and friendly workout.

If you already have plans for Saturday morning, or simply want to join us for the celebration portion of the festivities, come to our Grand Opening Party join us any time between 4 and 8 to see what we’re about and have some fun.


Everyone is welcome. Bring the kids; bring your roommate; bring friend you just met at the morning Buddy WOD. There will be appetizers, drinks, and a beautiful Autumn evening in our backyard right on the north branch of the Chicago River.
