10/31/18 - Happy Halloween from DEUCE Gym

**All classes are running as scheduled – Costumes encouraged**

Happy Halloween! Thank you all for making last Saturday’s ‘Deadlift + Death Press’ contest a success. We aren’t limiting our celebration to the event, so join us for some training today in costume.

We’ve been doing fitness in costume on Halloween for the last seven years together, so help us keep the tradition alive. See you at the gym!

Part of the reason that humans are notoriously unsatisfactory communicators is that we assume that what we think we’re saying is being heard. In fact, the amount of vague language and subjectivity in our communication pours gasoline on an already lit fire based on how poor humans can be as listeners.Part of the reason we ...
