11/30/17 - The DEUCE Gift Exchange

The staff is excited to announce the first ever DEUCE Gym ‘Secret Santa’ and you’re invited to participate. This is optional, but strongly encouraged. All you need to do is declare that you want to play along by opting in with this link here.

Once you’ve opted in, we will pair you with a partner by December 15, which is the date of our holiday party that shouldn’t be missed, either. As per universally accepted ‘Secret Santa’ rules, you’ll be assigned a fellow DEUCE Gym member to give a holiday gift to. Another person will be surprising you with a gift, as well.

The gift ought to be of around a $30 value. In addition to the exchange of gifts amongst our community, the extended benefit to playing along with us is the connection with members you may not know or have ever met. Don’t be afraid to be an investigator and give a quality gift to your secret recipient!

We hope you’ll join us!

OPT IN HERE.

The first time was against the Texas Rangers in Spring Training where, as a catcher, I followed a foul-ball back to the net only for it to fall out of play and as my eyes followed the ball to the stands I locked eyes with my childhood idol, Nolan Ryan, sitting front ro ...

Simply engaging in water-cooler talk surrounding what one eats and what one does for training is often enough to rustle some feathers. If you're lucky, you might be able to get an eye roll or two. It makes people defensive. Oddly, it's a corner of the mind that forces ignorant sales people, marketing execs, auto mechanics, ...

I've yet to meet someone who didn't want to grow as a person. Not for nothing, we all want to evolve into something capable for bigger and better things. When we look at what this means on the most granular level, consider this:There's nothing you currently believe to be true that will support this "bigger and better" versi ...

The box squat is different than a traditional back squat. The goal here is to stretch the hamstrings and put the work into the hips. It should not feel the same as a back squat nor are you likely to have the same numbers that you do in a back squat when beginning. It's easiest for me to break this thing down into three part ...

Sharing spaces, sharing roads, and sharing resources requires us to read signals from other people.A very simple example of this is someone using the blinker in t ...
