Drew's Words of Wisdom...
In order for this world to change, WE must change it. Be the change you wish to see in the world. Be Action.
Gobble Games 2017 - this Saturday, November 11th..
Saturday is going to be AMAZING! With over 30 teams from all over the Low Country and a set of volunteers that are gonna bring the house down, you want to be a part of it.
Registration is closed - but anyone is welcome to come spectate and cheer.
If you are coming please remember parking is limited, please DO NOT park in the counseling center's lot as they are open on Saturday. We are able to set up tents in Bouchillan across the street and they have offered us a few extra spots if needed.
Athletes that are competing - we recommend that you take Friday off - there will be more than enough WODs on Saturday to make up for it.
Volunteers and judges will need to attend a pre-event briefing on Wednesday November 8th at 6:30 pm. (Note the time change from last week's updates)
And thank you to our sponsors:
FALL FESTIVAL WOD - this Friday from 1-6 we will be at 12 Oaks for their Fall Festival. There will be Live music, food, and sorts of fun things, including HPA athletes working out. Come be one of them! Since there are no classes Friday night due to the set-up for the Gobble Games this is a great opportunity to sweat and represent your favorite hometown box.

Tuesday is an Open tester with Cleans and HSPU.
Wednesday is a bit longer of a WOD with running and sit-ups for 5 rounds in 20 min.
Thursday is a station day with a partner. Sledgehammers, KBS, Sleds, and Farmer's carries OH MY !
Friday is GG prep day. The gym closes at 1230 to set up. the WOD is a partner AMRAP Relay. Rowing, Farmers carries (or oh lunges) and db plank rows.
Saturday - come and watch athletes from all over crush the Gobble Games.
Pre-class prep - Remember that you that you are encouraged to come to class early and move around a bit or mobilize on your own. On weeks like this week when we are lifting heavy, many of us need a little extra stretching and mobilizing prior to the start of class and you are encouraged to do so. Also, the coach for that class will be on the floor to answer questions about scaling or focusing the workout for you individually. It's best to talk about this before class and much more difficult once class starts.
Need some extra 1-on-1? Private coaching is available for all of our athletes. Maybe it's to clean up snatch or clean up your diet. Your coach is available for extra 1-on-1 time by appointments. $40 per 30 minute session, $60 per hour session.
