Quote of the Week 2-17-2020

“Each new day is a new opportunity to improve yourself.  Take it, and make the most of yourself.”

NEWS

Last week we introduced a new format to classes and I personally am loving it.  In the interest of always adding value I feel we have really crammed the perfect amount of warm up, skill work, knowledge acquisition, strength, and of course fun into every class.  Let me and our Coaching Staff know what you guys think. 

I know there are lots of new snacks to try at the gym which is great! I only ask that you guys please eat them in the lounge area from here on out. Big E was kind enough to get us some Fit Crunch protein puffs and Dipsy always brings the crazy goods to our snack bowl. In fact, let’s all do our best to utilize our lounge area more the week- if there is any additions you would like to see made back there just say the word!

COMMUNITY

This Thursday is our Box Night Out!  Looks like we will be bowling at Coram Country Lanes right by the gym.  Keep in mind there will only be a 5:30pm afternoon class held that day. As always, feel free to bring friends and family.

PROGRAMMING

Welcome to week number four in our hypertrophy based cycle.  This week we up the reps from eight to twelve per set. Those of you who played with these movements last week know they are very demanding both neurologically and muscularly.  The last set in each move is meant to be a strip set where we will perform a set of twelve then immediately remove some weight and get another set of twelve. Our focus should be on excellent technique, squeezing the proper muscle, and getting a huge pump.  Our Metcons are a bit longer than last week including our Member of the Month WOD Wednesday- “Connie-B’s Pumpkin Patch”.
