Jogo Lab opening in July

Jogo, a local crossfit gym, will be adding a third Bellingham location at the beginning of July.

Located at 929 N. State St., the 1,100-square-foot space will not be a complete gym like the other two locations, but instead will just host exercise classes.

“We’re calling this location the Jogo Lab,” said owner Emilie Hester. “It’s going to offer a little bit different of a workout. Crossfit is pretty intense and not for everyone — this is not going to be as intimidating as crossfit. It will allow our members to do something a little bit lighter if they want.

The classes are still led by a coach in a group atmosphere, like in crossfit classes, Hester said. The Jogo Lab will be open to Jogo members on Tuesdays and Thursdays and open to the public on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Jogo, which means “play” in Portuguese, first opened in November 2007. For more information, call Jogo at (360) 733-5587 or visit
