TPH Pride WOD June 25th!

We are so excited to announce details of our second annual Pride event, which is less than three weeks away!

This is an opportunity to support a great cause while working out and having fun. It is not a competition, but there will be prizes for team spirit and best dressed team! Our goal is to raise $1000. As with last year, we will donate that to Lambert House, which offers 30+ programs and a drop in center for King County’s LGBTQ youth.


The Event

What: a partner WOD with prizes, open to all comers! 
Who: two-person teams of any combination. CrossFit experience is highly recommended, as one of the events involves a max lift. 
Where: Twenty Pound Hammer, 4550 9th Ave. NW, Ballard
When: Saturday, June 25th. Check in and warm up will start at 7.30AM, first heat at 8.30AM, afterparty until 1PM. 

Register at
Registration is open until Thursday, June 23 at 11PM.

The Cause

Lambert House is one of only 24 independent LGBTQ youth centers in the world. Its 30+ programs aim to minimize the health and mental health risks LGBTQ+ youth face, including family or peer rejection that can lead to depression, homelessness, or suicide; using alcohol and other drugs as coping mechanisms that can lead to addiction; anti-gay bullying in school that can lead to skipping classes and a disproportionately high rate of school failure; high rates of smoking and risk-taking behaviors due to minority stress and low self-esteem; and homelessness that can lead to survival sex and HIV.

As a gym, TPH focuses on physical fitness. But physical health is inextricably linked to emotional and mental health. Everyone deserves a place where they belong and can be themselves. Many of our members find this at TPH; Lambert House offers the same sense of belonging to LGBTQ+ youth who may not find it anywhere else.
