Remember, “To be truly awesome, you have to go above and beyond the efforts of those around you, look for alternative solutions, and refuse to back down from the truth. But it all starts with showing up.” – Chris Guillebreau

6 years ago today I posted this quote and it still rings true today. 6 years ago I hoped to still be exercising, to be healthy and stronger, to have a group of people who enjoyed fitness together and we do! There are many who showed up that first day/week. Many are still here working hard and even more have come and gone over that time. I am grateful for friendships and relationships that have been forged over these many years and am humbled by the sense of the community and camaraderie that I feel with each of the classes that I coach or attend as a member. Thanks to everyone who makes our gym a great, friendly and fun place to be!

I would be re-missed if we didn’t do that very first workout we programmed 6 years later! (But as our capacity has increased we will be doing 4 rounds for time!)
400m run
40 squats
30 sit ups
20 push-ups
10 pull-ups

“Now remember when things look bad and it looks like your not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean.  I mean plumb mad-dog mean.   Cause if you lose your head and give up then you neither live nor win. Thats just the way it is.” – Outlaw Josey Wales
