Drew's Words of Wisdom...
"Fear. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. Fear is the path to the dark side."- Yoda
With the events of the past weekend still fresh on the country's mind, I feel the urge to weigh-in. I won't get political. I won't get preachy. I will however, continue to strive DAILY to be the light... to fight the darkness. I challenge each of you to do the same. This task is not easy. It takes immeasurable strength to BE THE LIGHT day after day. The gym's mission is to make positive forward momentum in people's lives. This is also your mission. Produce the change you want to see. Produce the change you want to BE. How much of a positive impact can we make on our community in the next month? Six months? It starts with YOU. BE THE LIGHT.

Monday- Back squat then a super fast sprint. How many Snatches can you get in 5 minutes buying in every minute with 5 burpees?
Tuesday- Deadlift then a play off of Helen but instead of pull-ups, we have KB weighted sit-ups.
Wednesday- Strict Press then two back to back 21-15-9 WODs. The first one is row cals and push press. the second is wall ball and pull-ups.
Thursday- no strength today,but the WOD is untimed with several strength movements during.

Saturday Mastery Class (name open for suggestions:)
Every 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month at 11am there will be a fun and educational class that is part of our intern/apprentice training. The class is coached by one of our apprenticing or new coaches under the guidance of Drew or Caleigh. This allows them to practice and refine their coaching and group management skills. The format will be slightly different from a regular class, with times to stop as we give feedback to the coaches-in-training. These discussions are useful to everyone. All athletes are invited, and new athletes are especially encouraged to be part of the process of developing our newer coaches. Members only, however this class will not count as a class towards 2 or 3 times per week membership. *No Mastery Class Saturday August 12th due to the Beach WOD*
