Monday: A BIG Week!

Monday’s here…and we’ve got a BIG WEEK coming up at High Voltage!

  • The Whole Life Challenge Prelims (workout & intake measurements) are happening this Saturday – athlete check in starts at 9:30am – you have 5 days left to get you your friends & family registered at
  • We’ll be announcing the prizes sponsors and more awesomeness throughout this week – so join the rest of the High Voltage Community and get in the Game!
  • Our High Voltage Oly Club and ‘Oly Only’ classes start this Sunday at 11am –  the training session will be lead by Pan Am Games Silver medalist Emmy Vargas. Be there and get your Oly on before Football kicks in!

And now hot off the heels of passing the High Voltage Level 2 ITP Test Matty’s making an appearance on the blog! Be sure and let him know how he did when he’s assisting the 6&7am classes Monday morning!

One of the best things about the Whole Life Challenge (WLC) is that anyone can do it. Regardless if you travel a lot and have a busy schedule or you’re an avid CrossFitter you can still do the WLC and challenge yourself for 8 weeks to help improve your health and lifestyle. But remember it’s not about being getting a perfect score what’s most important is why you’re doing it. To have that particular reason goes far just like our fitness goals.

Compared to going through the motions with nothing specific in mind goals are what fuel us to go that extra yard. So what’s fueling me to do to the WLC? Simple – I want to help High Voltage make this Challenge the Best Ever and be a positive example to my fellow Volts and Vixens. While this includes crushing the Prelims and Finals what is most important to me is that I want to help you guys. Talk the talk and walk the walk? There’s really no other way to propel yourself and our Community forward than to BE the change we seek to influence.

So before I sign off here is a little challenge for you Volts and Vixens: post to either the comments section or the FB page your reason for doing the Challenge. It doesn’t need to be big or small or anything inbetween just something to help you get through these 8 AWESOME weeks of fun. Like I said these goals are important so take some time to think about yours. That said take care I’ll see you all Saturday September 15th!
