Community Updates: May 31st
"No greater love have no man than this, than to lay down his life for his friends."
It continues to both shock us and humble us at the energy this community brings for events like Murph. Leaders like Lt. Michael Murphy who, without a moment of hesitation, sacrificed himself for his men inspires us. In our corner of the world, most of us will never be faced with a decision like this. I do believe, however, that we are presented daily with opportunities to sacrifice our own comfort and convenience for someone else’s sake. You never know how the smallest act of kindness or generosity can amplify when given to someone else. Thank you for being a community that sees the needs of those around us and is willing to go the extra mile (literally for some of you) to help someone achieve their goal. This happens naturally in our little garage. Let’s continue to make that happen even after we leave the parking lot. Let us never be so blind that our small world is all we see. No one is LIMITLESS on their own.
Make sure to check Facebook through out the week for more Murph pics, the June updates video, and all the great happenings this month!
Town Hall Recap
The Town Hall Recap email went out last week. Please take a few minutes to read through the email and some of the changes happening here. I know it’s long. We tried to add in a little comic relief here and there. It was brought to my attention that we discussed the new hybrid membership options as well as benchmarks to graduate from Fundamental PT, but I didn’t attach those documents in the email. You can find them here:
Look for some fun odd lifts this week alongside some cute little couplets and wrapping up with a WOD at the BEACH!
MURPH recovery - Fish oil and water for everyone. Avoid inflammatory foods (sugar and alcohol) as these will make you MORE sore. If your muscles or elbows are swollen then you need to stay home and rest. Reducing systemic inflammation will help with acute soreness and swelling. Continue to hydrate.
Your roster coach will be contacting you this week to set up your semi-annual personal training appointment (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, go read your Town Hall Recap email :)
