7/21/17 - Red Bull Set to Take Over DEUCE Gym

This Thursday we will be closed to the public as Red Bull Media House invades the gym. While we can’t say too much about the shoot, Red Bull will be doing a fresh new take on “the Athlete Machine” at 110 Lincoln Blvd.

Expect to see some familiar faces in the fitness industry move through a chain reaction at your favorite gym. All classes will be cancelled Thursday July 27th as a result.

Weight training is an incremental pursuit. Inherent in its nature is the practice of progressive overload. Within this training style comes failure. Our position begins to falter as we go up in weight. It’s very easy to find the ceiling of our potential at any given time. We would refer to this as a max effort. The obviou ...

When the idea of creating a DEUCE Gym beach towel came up, Coach Danny was adamant about it being excellent. We've all seen those gimmicky graphic promo towels that, to be blunt, are more valuable in the trash can than in your linens closet. Well, he found the source because this towel holds the standard.We aren't sure if t ...

What if I told you that the best goals are unsettable? That's right. You can't even set the goals that are the most spectacular to accomplish. The reason, of course, that you can't set them is because you don't know what you don't know.These are called blind spots.Part of the beauty of our own evolution is that our current, ...

I recently texted a friend about business. To make matters worse, I did so on a Sunday. With strike one and strike two against me, I was relieved of my guilt when he said, "There are no Sundays in my life. Only days."I guess that we're more similar than I once thought. Surely, your career and values will shape your frame wi ...

Have you ever received a compliment from someone you look up to? How did that feel? It’s like sunshine hitting your face on a frosty morning. It’s like warming yourself by a campfire when its snowing outside. It’s like the air conditioning kicking on in your car when the seats are burning your thighs and sweat is drip ...

If you pay attention to the men and women that are operating at the highest level, you'll notice a commonality. They all are extremely close to their failures. Some are disgusted by them and are fueled by their lack of perfection, while others just see them as learning opportunities. Either way, the style of this is prefere ...

I can't stand dirty dishes in the sink. There's something so repulsive about a wet, soggy concoction of miscellaneous food bits and mismatches leftovers that grosses me out. It even affects my ability to rinse completely mutually exclusive silverware, cups, and dishes with this dirty wreckage below. I can't do it.As a resul ...

If you guys haven’t been around to see Pam train, well, I can honestly say that you have been missing out. This woman is a phenom.Pam came to train about three months ago, and she told me that she had some races coming up. This is not an unlikely story from a person looking to up their power output and leg strength. She w ...

Who makes your favorite ice cream? Look, I know it's an odd question, but just think about your answer. If money was no object and you could have any pair of shoes you liked, what company's shoes would you by? Similarly, if you could stay free at any brand of hotel for a year, which would you choose?The interesting thing ab ...
