Pump & Run

We will order shirts by Thursday August 20th! Get registered today! You can still register up to the day of the event, but only guaranteed a shirt if registered by August 20th.

September is Suicide Awareness Month! Unfortunately, this touches close to home for some of our members and trainers at Brick House Fitness & Aspire Weightlifting Club. This event is a fundraiser to raise money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). AFSP is the leading national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide. 25% of the profit from this event will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

Has suicide touched your life? Get a group together and do this event to help raise money to help those in need!

Join this fun event at BrickHouse Fitness!! You do not have to be a member to join! Everyone is welcome to come show us what you’ve got!
