FIRE IT UP! 011615

By There are no tags 0 comments

The weekend is upon us. It’s Friday baby and time to Fire It Up! Tonight will be our Town Hall Meeting. I am looking forward to seeing everyone that is able to make it and answer questions you have. But that is for later.

Big week! We worked up to a few 3RM’s and 5RM’s, a little thing called the “Beep Test.” Now these are not necessarily going to be personal bests but because you all sweat F*ckin’ Liquid Awesome I know that many did indeed hit new personal records. Who hit it? Who was able to ring the bell? Don’t be shy, this is your time to say look at me instead of saving it for the dreaded beast known as Facebook! HA!

Speaking of Liquid Awesome…watch this video of Matt E from the 6am class on Wednesday. He hit 8 full rounds of the “Beep Test”. It was quite fun to watch that level of performance.


INDOMITABLE – impossible to subdue or defeat. Unconquerable. Unbeatable. Unstoppable.

“Unstoppable” (Nov, 2010) Essay By Lisbeth Darsh Live Like That

You can beat me. But not defeat me.

I will dial myself in. I will focus.

You can run faster than me. But you cannot run truer.

I will learn to sprint. And to slow my pace for recovery.

You can post higher PR numbers than me on every whiteboard that exists in this world. But your weights really only mean something to you, not to me. You can lift more than me. In rubber or iron. Today. 

But not in life. I am my own yardstick.

I will breathe deep and take this burden from the ground to my shoulders. And then over my head. But I will put it back down and walk away from it. It does not own me.

Although we pen our efforts for everyone to see, I was never competing with you to begin with. I am trying to be a better version of me, every single workout and every single day. You only help me to get there. Thank you. I hope my efforts drive you harder too.

But make no mistake, you can never defeat me.

It’s simply not possible.

I am unstoppable

I LOVE this essay by Lisbeth. This should be your thoughts each and every time you walk through the doors. I believe in it so much that I had shirts made. I am going to get it put on the wall in the gym. I want it to be a daily reminder to those that need it.

A very small quantity is available for purchase at $25 per shirt. We have XS – XL. Let me know if you would like one for your closet.
