The Man In The Glass

Peter “Dale” Winbrow Sr


When you get what you want in your struggle for self

And the world makes you king for a day,

Just go to the mirror and look at yourself

And see what that man has to say.


For it isn’t your father or mother or wife

Whose judgment upon you must pass.

The fellow whose verdict counts most in you life

Is the one staring back from the glass.


You may be like Jack Horner and chisel a plum

And think you’re a wonderful guy.

But the man in the glass says you’re only a bum

If you can’t look him straight in the eye.


He’s the fellow to please-never mind all the rest,

For he’s with you clear to the end.

And you’ve passed your most dangerous, difficult test

If the man in the glass is your friend.


You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years

And get pats on the back as you pass.

But your final reward will be heartache and tears

If you’ve cheated the man in the glass.


At the end of each day, it is up to you.  You  determine if you get better, stay the same, or regressed.  You know the truth.  Did you  give everything you had in this one chapter of your life?  Or, did you cheat yourself out of opportunity?  Don’t be a loser and waste any opportunity for progress.


Tonight we have the Throwdown at 7:30 pm followed by Friday Night Lights (movie night and social time for members).  Everyone from the community is welcome to attend and if you wish to bring a friend along too that is awesome as well.  There will be some adult beverages available but feel free to bring any food or drink that you would like as well.

Why am I revealing the next weeks programming?   I want to allow you all to plan your week better so that you can be maximizing your progress.  If you have a deadline at work and you’re not going to make it in on Thursday, I want you to know that we will be hitting the front squat so you can be sure to train the lift on your own and not miss the cycle.  We allow open gym use for strength work, skill work, and to make up the daily programming when you cannot make it in for the class.

See you in the box!

Dedicated to Your Fitness!
