Drew's Words of Wisdom...
Super simple today. We all got thrown for a loop last week. The uncertainty, the anxiety, the non-perishable food, the traffic was all maddening. It was very easy to get caught up in the swirling circle of negativism (I am guilty just as anyone else), BUT most of those things are outside of your control. In situations like Irma, control the controllable variables (food and attitude are the top 2). Things get easier to deal with once you start focusing ONLY on the things your can control.
Here is a quick list to fire you up this week. How many of these can you work with?

First Saturday Friend Fest is Turning Pink in October for Breast Cancer Awareness. Snag a friend from work or a football buddy and let them know that pink is where it's at.

Attention Parents (of young kids and little pets)! Just a reminder if you choose to bring your little ones to the gym you are responsible for both their wellbeing AND ensuring that they are not distracting from the experience of the class. We love you and your family and know how much it means for them to be immersed in a fit community. Kids that will stay in a stroller are welcome on the floor and kids that are okay with less supervision are welcome in the office. For those in-between, you'll notice that we've provided a gated area for them stay during class. Please arrive early enough to get them and yourself settled before class starts.
Big week this week - two hero workouts and a named re-test.
For our strength movements we are going back to 3s. Last week threw everyone for a loop, so we are re-doing the 3s. Look for 10s next week. Then we will 1RM test a month early.
Monday we are doing back squat and then honoring Lance Vogeler with kettlebell swings, lunges and running.
Tuesday we are doing BENCH press (sleeves optional) then a super fast/fun equal work rest wod with rowing and snatches.
Wednesday is the re-test of Fight Gone Bad. We will deadlift after the WOD.
Thursday is a super fun chipper with mountain climbers, overhead squats, pull-ups, and running.
Friday is front squat heavy right into a wod to honor Jeremy Katzenberger. Thrusters, hspu, and sit-ups are on the menu.
Saturday we will honor another hero Jason Dahlke with a partner workout. Running, rope climbs, front squats (back squats if you come in friday), burpee box jumps and weighted sit-ups.
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.
