Community Updates October 2, 2017
Drew's Words of Wisdom...
Everyone you meet will die eventually. However, how many of those people will ever truly live? How many people will ever find their true talent and be able to give it away? How many people will find passion? Who among them will find their voice to share with the world?
Our focus this week is living with urgency. You only have a finite amount of days left on this earth. Make them count.
Thank you Hyperformance Community for helping us celebrate our 9 year anniversary. Here a link to the video the coaches made for you incase you missed it Friday in class.
First Saturday Friend Fest is This Saturday and we are turning PINK in October for Breast Cancer Awareness month. Snag a friend from work or a football buddy and let them know that pink is where it's at. Just come to workout in honor of someone you know who has fought with breast cancer or to show support for those currently in the fight. Times are 9am and 11am on October 7th.

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 well being 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.

Welcome to testing week.
The focus this whole week is lifting weight. You will also see some gymnastic tests we would like you to complete. Make sure you input your score to zen planner. Tomorrow's TACOs Drewsday Live Facebook post will include strategy for maximizing your testing experience. We will post daily WODs, but those pale in comparison in importance to the lifts and gymnastics movements.
Monday- Back Squat and Pull-ups
Tuesday- Bench press and HSPU
Wednesday- Deadlift and DUs
Thursday- OHS and TTB
Friday- Clean and Jerk and Bar Facing Burpees
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.
