5/30/14 - Coach Don is BACK!

That’s right boys and girls, Don Ricci, and Barbell Performance is back this Saturday at 10AM. As you all know by now, Don injured himself in an accident and our Saturday weightlifting technique class was interrupted to allow his wrist to recover.

If you’re interested in perfecting you weightlifting technique, class is just $20. You can drop-in once, or make it a regular habit.

His course rotates through the clean, the jerk, and the snatch, spending three weeks on each movement. Interested?

Join us!

Every step on the first half of a run is one step further away from your destination. Your mind can't un-know this. Personally, I find that on long runs, the run back is far more easy than the run out. There's more pep in my step and optimism in my mind knowing each step is one closer to home on the way back. Doing 'Murph' ...
