1/19/18 - DEUCE Presents: ‘United by Motion’

All are invited to a FREE event at DEUCE Gym powered by STR/KE Movement. Saturday January 27th from 5:30-7:00PM we will celebrate life in motion. The ‘United by Motion‘ event will feature a short presentation from the New York Times Bestselling author of Free+style, Carl Paoli, Olympic medalist and coach, Caroline Burckle, and myself.

We are speaking on behalf of our brand, STR/KE Movement, which has inspired us to share our message with the world. We make performance shoes and apparel for all movers. The company was founded in 2011 by former professional snowboarder, Marc Morriset, in Vancouver, Canada, and this event is our opportunity to share what we’re doing with you all.

After a massive showing at a similar ‘United by Motion’ event in Sydney, Australia, we are excited to bring a remarkable experience to Venice Beach. Expect to enjoy some beverages, good company, access to exclusive STR/KE gear, and leave inspired. I promise that you won’t be disappointed.

This is a FREE event open to the public so please RSVP here. Share the word with anyone you feel would be interested and we’ll see you all Saturday!

People often ask me how to build a high performance team. They often want to instill things like commitment and "buy-in" in their group, but struggle to manifest these qualities. My answer often rubs people the wrong way.If you ask me, commitment is forged in a rite of passage. Teams with the highest levels of buy-in and th ...

Thank goodness we have the freedom to speak our minds (so far). I think we’re all in agreement when I echo the importance of an environment that doesn’t stifle self-expression.On the other hand, it’d be silly to illogically connect the righteousness of freedom of expression with its right-ness. In fact, the mere notio ...

Have you ever been fishing? Do you know the goal for everyone is not only to catch the biggest fish? Sometimes it's not the biggest ones that fight the most. And, the fight is the fun part. Fishing is about spending time buried in process. You are casting and reeling and baiting hooks over and over again for hours. There is ...

Are you in control of your breath? Are you in control of the focal point of your eyes?When you move, do you think about these things?Think about squatting. Approach the bar. Unrack the bar. Walk the bar out. Get your feet set. Send your hips back and descend to below parallel. Stand up. Walk the bar back in. Rack the barbel ...

Any reason for starting a long, difficult journey is satisfactory. Even if it’s blatant curiosity that gets you in the game, that’s a win. The trouble is, what inspires us to start a fitness practice, build a business, or gain mastery in something, rarely will carry us through to the end (if there is such a thing) unles ...

Did you pack your knee sleeves? What about your lifting shoes? Well, not so fast. There's running in the workout, too, so make sure you've got your Pose running shoes with you. And, so goes the silly internal dialogue may of us have about training gear.For a long time I had a staunch "No Gear Ever" policy. I wore the simple ...

I find myself reexamining ideas that are easy to gloss over. The things I find my self taking for granted, as if I've checked that box, are often places worth going deep on. Leadership was one of those concepts. Before being quick to move past it, I found that if someone asked me to define it that I'd start rambling my way ...
