9/30/14 - Make Sh*t Happen Meeting Wednesday

Sweating and breathing hard is cool and all, but I think that our Make Sh*t Happen goal setting course that Coach Lindsey runs is the most important thing we offer here. Call me crazy, but at the end of the day we all have bigger fish to fry than what are pull ups look like. Life, inside and outside of the gym, is either happening to you or you’re taking charge of it yourself. MSH 2014 Logo

In that way, MSH is a goal setting group that provides context, structure, and incredible people to facilitate getting incredibly important, even audacious, goals accomplished. Want a little insider information? These goals usually aren’t even fitness related. Anything goes!

If you’re interested, join us Wednesday night at 8PM for a workshop that will look back and the last 90 days and set up some small, measurable action steps for the next 30, 60, and 90 days to come.

Let’s make some sh*t happen!

What's the deal with breakfast? There might not be an American walking this Earth that's never heard the phrase, "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day." Though I understand what someone could be getting at when they say that, I'm not sure that it really means anything, especially when some of us wake up and eat b ...

Heck, one mishap or one great play could define the entire season.Remember, though, football isn't real life.In real life, you don't prepare all week to show up on Friday night to p ...

Attachment to a group, however, can be dangerous.There's a fine line there. Think about the difference between when one identifies with a group idea more so than th ...

"Start the car! This is heavy, alright?!"That's what the woman in front of me in line at CVS screamed to her husband late last night. She had a twelve pack of waters on the counter with her arms wrapped around the sides in anticipation for a grueling walk to the car. You could tell she didn't know if she could make it. I'm ...
