Hi everyone,

Hope you’re still enjoying time with family, friends, and your favorite pair of stretchy pants. I’m briefly interrupting your holiday time with a fun announcement: On Saturday, February 2nd, we’ll be hosting OUTWOD at Depot Echo Park!

One of my favorite things about Depot is how diverse and inclusive the community is across every single one of our locations. The way each gym showed up loud and proud for our inaugural Depot Pride workout in June truly gave me the warm and fuzzies. <3

I can’t wait to host our Depot Pride WOD in June 2019, but ahead of that, you’ll have another opportunity to work out and show your support for the LGBTQ+ community. In February, we’ll be opening up our doors at Depot Echo Park to queer athletes and allies from all across Los Angeles to host OUTWOD, a community workout and fundraiser.


Registration is $30 and all proceeds from the event will be going towards The Out Foundation and GLSEN Los Angeles. The Out Foundation is the only US non-profit dedicated to the health and wellness of the LGBTQ+ community by providing access to and success within the fitness space. GLSEN LA is an education non-profit whose mission is create safe and affirming K-12 schools for all students, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

Two different options for the OUTWOD workout are available: (1) Fitness - Simple functional fitness movements requiring no advanced skill (perfect for your friend who does not have CrossFit experience but wants to join in on the fun!) and (2) Performance - Elements of olympic lifting, powerlifting, gymnastics, etc. (As a Depot member, you’ll be ready for this!)

With that said, save the date - February 2nd, 2019! Or, better yet...register now! Again, this event is open to the public and the OUTWOD team will be closing registrations once we reach capacity.

With love and excitement (and very much still in my comfy holiday pants),
Steph Lo
