You know that potential energy stirring as the horses in the Kentucky Derby stand ready in their starting gate anticipating the opening of the gate? The absolute specimen thoroughbred horses that race these races can’t wait long behind that gate or they will implode with potential energy not even the metal gate can control.
That’s what it feels like in anticipation of the opening of DEUCE to the public July 1st. In the horse races, the gates open to start the race the moment the gate closes behind the last horse because it’s the minimum safe amount of time to withhold the anticipation of the race. DEUCE has been tending to its starting gate with procedures and administrative organizing to create a safe return to the gym. First we opened to a small number of current members then allowed members on hold to reactivate and now we’re opening to the public!
If you or someone you know is ready to train in a remarkable gym experience, we’d love to have you in Hermosa Beach, West Hollywood, or Venice Beach starting Wednesday. Just drop your name here if you’re interested.
See you at the gym!
