Its a special time of year in New Braunfels. Its time for basically all the holidays. Back to back to back. Labor Day, Columbus Day,Halloween, Wurstfest,Veterans Day, Thanksgiving and then its time for a whole month of ” A Christmas Story” (You’ll shoot your eye out). Anyways we here at Sporthalle are here for you.

In order to help you prepare for the Hoildays Whirlwind we are having.


OCT 20th

Join us for Sporthalle’s 1st Annual Paleo Crocktoberfest crock-pot cooking contest! Bring your favorite crock-pot creation and compete against your fellow athletes for the title of SPORTHALLE Ultimate Crocktologist.
What we need from you is to vote on the time of the event.
Compete in Three Categories!

There will be 3 categories of competition – Entrees, Desserts, and Crocktails. There will be a winner in each category as well as an overall crowning of the 2018 SPORTHALLE Ultimate Crocktologist. Entries are judged by our all-star panel of paleo culinary experts based on taste, creativity, and presentation.

Don’t Want to Compete? – Come Socialize and Eat!
We encourage everyone to come, whether or not you’re entering a dish.Please come join us, even if you don’t plan on entering a dish to mix, mingle, and try all of the fantastic entries. Please bring a dish or drink to share!
So the meat and potatoes…
Judging starts promptly at the beginning of the event. Any entries that arrive after the start will be enjoyed by all but will not be in the running for the title. Eating begins as soon as the judges have had an opportunity to try each entry.
All ingredients must be paleo approved (no grains, no dairy, no legumes). Paleo gray area including, maple, honey, agave, and alcohol can be included but must be disclosed. If you are unsure, ask. We will be happy to approve recipes. Please feel free to post any ingredient questions to comments.
All ingredients must be cooked in the crock-pot (cannot bbq, fry, wok, etc. prior to going in the pot… searing or browning is ok)
Your crock-pot creation will be judged solely on the contents of the crock-pot. Accoutrements and pairings will only count toward presentation points.
Bring your A game and be prepared to share the family recipe (yeah, yeah, you can leave out a key ingredient or two to maintain your edge for next year).


On top of that we are also  having our :

2nd Annual Costume Contest Oct 27th

Come in costume and get your pumpkin on. Maybe you can out do Uncle Dave. But probably not.


New Programming.

Hey everyone! As you know Coach Chick has been writing our Crossfit programming for nearly a year. She has been doing a fantastic job but has chosen to pass the programming torch on to me, though she will continue to work with me on metabolic conditioning structure. I value her years of experience as a past owner and a coach for over 25 years. I’m excited to take this on and express my vision for our Crossfit classes. You can expect to see more structured strength progressions, meaning you will see the same strength movements on the same day each week, and will be following a linear weight progression to drive accelerated adaptation for strength and conditioning. I’m very excited to see how you respond to this new stimulus. As members of Sporthalle please give me feed back to make the gym the best we can be.
