1/31/19 - FREE Community Workout Saturday

This Saturday has your name on it. Like every first Saturday of the month, we have a FREE Community Workout that is open to the public. The all-levels class begins at 9AM.

If you know someone who has expressed interest in the gym, this Saturday is a fun introduction. If you’ve trained the same number of classes each week with us, it’s also a great way to see what an extra day would feel like.

Come one. Come all.

Controversial title, I know. Here’s the deal. This isn’t about bravado or ego. It’s about adaptation. It’s worth clarifying for students and coaches alike that, unless your workout is a sport in and of itself, the reason any exercise is prescribed in the gym is to send a certain signal to the body to guide adaptatio ...
