Drew's Words of Wisdom...
The daily stoic got me this morning. Tim McGraw got me as well. Why does it take a catastrophic event like death for us to start living like we were about to die? You WILL die. The dizzying part is that you don't know when or where. What are the things you would do differently if you knew the time and place? What would you go see? Who would you make amends with? Because you ARE being chased by death, why not do those things NOW? Live right now as if you were dying. Love often, love deeply, laugh, and enjoy the time you have. DON'T wait.

NEW TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES
For you and your buddies! There are now two more great programs for current athletes and future athletes to benefit from functional fitness in an amazing community. Fundamentals are not required for either of these classes.
HyperStrike 2.0 is a specialty class available to all athletes. This program combines striking with self-defense in a really fun workout. The class is 60 minutes.
Starting December 1st, HyperStrike Specialty Classes will be offered at the following times:
Wed 5:45 pm *
Friday 10:15 am*
Saturday 10:15 am
*Wednesday and Friday will be the same class curriculum and workout. Two times are being offered for convenience. Participants are encouraged to do either Wednesday or Friday in addition to Saturday. Times are subject to change based on participation. 5 class packs are available for $50 for members and $75 for non-members. Athletes need to bring their own MMA gloves.
For those with only 30 minutes at lunchtime and want to make it count. Join for a fast-paced high-energy sweat sesh. Lot's of functional movement with kettlebells, medicine balls, and dumbbells, but no barbell.
For the remainder of 2018 classes will be held on Wednesdays and Fridays at 12:30. During the launch phase (now through December) current athletes may attend any SWEAT:30 class for free, we just ask that you bring your best positive attitude (and a friend!). Non-members may attend one free class, then subsequent classes are 10 for $150.
Congrats on graduating Small Group Fundamentals Jeb and Amanda!

Last year we proved the generous spirit of our HPA family and showered two local families who had a child undergoing cancer treatment with gifts, clothes, and love.
This year we're gonna do it again and our families have gotten bigger! Drew and I ask each athlete to get involved with making a difference for two families going through something that NO family should have to go through. The list of needs is at the front desk. Talk with your class ambassador for coordinating gifts.
