In a surprising turn around, Suck it up buttercups turn it around to squeak out the overall lead by one point over the purple reign. Ahh flock in third and the hulksters are 4th. Last week to get points for your team. Points double this week so anyone can still WIN. Good luck.

OPEN GYM The Experiment Continues

Over the last four weeks we've experimented with the feasibility, demand, and logistics for an Open Gym time period on Saturdays from 11am to 2pm.

Because we didn't hold any Friday classes during the Friday Night Light weeks, we offered this for free to all our members. We're pleased by the number of you that showed up to work on weak areas, do a special workout, or just stick around to judge or cheer.

We'd like to continue offering Open Gym on Saturdays once Friday Night Lights are over. Being able to provide this service does increase the amount of equipment usage and energy and labor cost. Over the next week we'd love to hear your feedback and thoughts on how useful this was to you and whether you will be interested in having access in the future. Please email with thoughts and feedback. Look for an announcement next week that will detail times, cost, and other information regarding open gym.


SH(R)ED 1000 -

The quarter is almost done. We are going to do another weigh in next week and start to total up how many lbs we have changed. Not time to lose momentum now. Take all the habits you are developing and parlay them into a lifestyle.

Olympic Lifting Specialty Course -

St. Baldricks Update! Heidi is shaving her head!

Our HPA Family has been so supportive of my fundraising for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation! Thank you!!

The event was originally scheduled for this Saturday (3/23), but has been postponed. GUESS WHAT? I will be drawing a name for the split the pot raffle at the FNL FIESTA on Friday, immediately followed by...SHAVING MY HEAD! Yup! I will be doing it at the gym as a virtual fundraiser! Mike Kelly has generously offered to do the honors. I am so excited to have my fit family be a part of this humbling experience as I shave my head in support of childhood cancer research! See you Friday!!
