Crossfit finds approval on variance request
By Chris Erickson
Aprogram that focuses on core strength and fitness has received the go-ahead from Beulah’s City Council to temporarily occupy a building until its own structure is built.
The Beulah Planning and Zoning Board had previously heard the case and made the recommendation to approve the variance request to the council. City Coordinator Russ Duppong gave a brief background on the application, noting the concerns the zoning board had brought up including parking, exit signs and temporary bathroom facilities.
Duppong stated that the temporary occupancy variance would allow Roughrider Crossfit to utilize the building until their new structure was built near the gymnastics academy.
Owner Nate Brunsell then explained the program in more detail.
“It’s a core strength and conditioning program designed on constantly varied high-intensity functional movements,” he said. “That includes Olympic lifts, power lifts, running, jumping, gymnastics-type movements, and this translates into everyday life such as throwing your grandkids up in the air to play with them, hauling dog food or fertilizer into the backyard, or getting into and out of your seats.”
