FIRE IT UP FRIDAY! 061915

FIRE IT UP! FIRE IT UP!

A little bit of competition, when healthy, is a great thing. Yesterdays conditioning piece of 50 burpees was a great test. It became even better when a little jawing came down from our “eldest” of tribal elders Nigel, aka “Pencil Neck”, questioned Omri’s, newly crowned “Top Knot”, work capacity. Top Knot proceeded to finish his 50 burpees 30 seconds faster than Pencil Neck with a time of 2:35. A little bit of competition is a good thing indeed.

GROWING

On Wednesday Abigail, my 5 year old, graduated from her Pre-K program. It is amazing how fast time goes. I was just having a conversation with Thor and he was discussing how his house is now an empty nest since his youngest is beginning college. Blink and before you know it, 10 years has passed.

It is so important to live your life in the present. Enjoy each and every moment you have with those you love and do the things you enjoy to do. Our role here is to get you into the best shape possible so you can continue to enjoy everything at a very high quality.

An excellent tool to help you grow into even better fitness is the Athlete Level’s 1-4 that we have on the wall leading up into the offices and lounge. These are a guide to assist your personal development to becoming the best possible version of you. Next week I am going to post up two blogs that will explain better how to use the standards and how we can help.

061215 FIRE IT UP FRIDAY!

FIRE IT UP!

It’s Friday baby! I won’t be with my morning crew today while I am still a “Single Dad” but thankfully Jess will return this evening and next week…ITS ON! I miss my morning crew if you can’t tell.

I have really enjoyed this week’s programming. Us coaches have already begun seeing improvement in both the snatch and handstand push-ups with the extra skill work that has been built in. Courtney finally broke the century mark on her Power Snatch and she got it for 2 reps! It has been a 2+ year struggle to hit that marker. If you need more help than we can give you in the class session, book a private with your coach. Even a 30 minute drill session will help!

If you are missing class, don’t miss the practice. These skill sessions are essential for your continued development as an athlete. If you are not attacking them with at least the same tenacity you would your favorite #HeroWOD or #girlwod then you are spinning your wheels.

Give 100% at improving 1% each and every day you walk through the door. Do this and look back in 365 days and WOW!

REMINDER OF NEW SATURDAY CLASS SCHEDULE

The new Saturday schedule begins tomorrow. The Gym will be open 9am – 1pm. There is ONE class at 9:30AM. It is a TEAM WOD.

ASIAN INVASION

Coach Mickey and the Sunday crew is heading to the China Pearl after class for brunch. Here are the details one more time in case you missed the email:

  1. We’ll be taking the 9:30 AM class and then heading over to China Pearl with an ETA of about 11:15/30.
  2. You don’t have to do the 9:30 class, but there’s a good chance you’ll be waiting for us in the event we run late.
  3. It’s probably worth carpooling there and back. Please reply to this email if you need a ride or would like a ride. Ideally, we would get four people to car and park at Beach Street lot (40 Beach Street) for $12.
  4. There may or may not be an opportunity to take in either bubble tea or Vietnamese iced coffee afterwards. The group will decide.
