Above are mock-ups of potential new Division St. CrossFit t-shirts and tank tops with some VERY cool printing technology. Before we place an order, we wanted to check to see if you all are interested in the design idea since it will be slightly more expensive to produce.


The t-shirt and tank top layouts are as shown above (there will also be a women’s racerback tank top version) with the Division St. CrossFit logo across the chest in red with black outline. The D St. logo will be placed on the right sleeve of the t-shirts and upper mid-back of the tank tops. The Chicago flag will be located on the left sleeve of the t-shirts and left hip pocket of the tank tops.


Here’s the fun part….

On the back of all garments will be the words “TECHNIQUE”, “CONSISTENCY”, and “INTENSITY”. When the garment is dry, these words will NOT be visible. But once you begin sweating, the words will begin to reveal themselves! The words will be laid out such that the more you sweat (the further the sweat runs down the shirt), the more words will be revealed. (an example of the sweat-activated printing technology can be seen above)


This is not a pre-order (but we may take one soon)! Rather, it is simply an opportunity for you to let us know whether or not you would be interested in purchasing one of these shirts. The colors and fabrics may vary between garments due to the unique printing process but we will have more information on that soon (likely closer in color to the sample picture than the mock-ups with a higher cotton content than our previous shirts). Regardless, each t-shirt and tank top will likely cost $30 apiece.

Please let us know below by the end of the day TODAY if you are interested in picking up one of these t-shirts or tank tops.

Barbells for Boobs 2014 (Sat. 10/11)

by JJ Christopher in Event | 8 Comments


Last year, we hosted a Barbells for Boobs event (pics) and absolutely CRUSHED IT from a donation (over $7,500!) and performance (check out these times) standpoint! This year, we’re looking to add to the cause by crushing it on the turf of one three gyms who have joined forces for this year’s Barbells for Boobs campaign.


Barbells for Boobs is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the early detection of breast cancer, with an emphasis on women and men under the age of 40. Each year, CrossFit gyms across the country host an event centered around a classic CrossFit workout. Traditionally, this workout is Grace (30 clean & jerks)!


We will head to CrossFit Chicago (1444 W. Willow) where they will be running heats of Grace every 15 min. beginning at 8 am on Saturday, October 11, 2014. No matter your age, experience, or skill level, you CAN participate!


You can register and set up your own fundraising page under the “1 Cause, 3 Locations” donation team at the link provided below. At the below link, you will also make your donation, purchase your t-shirt (optional), and select your heat time and scaling option (previous sub-4 minute Grace performers can get in on their own competitive Firebreathers heats starting at noon). If you would like to participate without performing the workout, they are also looking for volunteers.


Use the comments section below to coordinate your heat times and let us know when you have registered!
