BIG week at the box…coming off a BIG Week! It’s just how we roll…
First up, a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped make this past weekend a big success at both the World’s Best Boot Camp Enlistment Day AND the Cal Affiliate League Co-Ed partner competition! Special shout out to Desi & Drew, and Tarah & Dan who put themselves out there in competition. Anytime anyone is willing to do that, they always have my respect!
Aaaand for this week, we’ve got 3 big things happening.
First…this Sunday, Aug 24…we’re all heading to the Beach!
That means there’s no class on Sunday…so YOU, your friends, your family, are all heading to Annenberg Beach House in Santa Monica from 12pm until 4pm…but probably later.
I’m super excited about this…and can’t wait to get out there & just hang out with everyone – no event, no competition, just all my favorite people!
Regular Schedule through Saturday, closed on Sunday.
Second…The 11 Week ‘Barbell Strength: Integrated Gymnastics’ cycle is now open…if you want to jump on board, this is the time!
The deets: Monday/Wednesday, we’re having it EARLIER this year- starting at 7:30pm! Both Coaches Brown Bear, Pnutz, and I worked a ton on this to help accomodate as many of you as possible. We’ll be running the 7:30pm class with regular programming, and the Barbell Strength class at the same time [but different coaches/set ups]
Saturday’s will still be at 11am.
The program is new this year – we’re combining the proven barbell strength progressions with a gymnastics & body control supplemental approach to really unlock some amazing results. Just getting to talk to the Coaches about this gets me super fired up.
And we’re packing even more into it this year…included for everyone is weekly email support with the coaches, Muscle Strength supplements to help maximize ‘dem gainz’, and some basic mobility equipment. These are bonuses, that as coaches we decided everyone needed, and you are not charged extra for these. They’re included so you can rock it as hard as possible!
It will lead up to a Barbell Strength Total Day…we’re calling the ‘Night of Champions’.
- The price is $349 for current Volts & Vixens, and $549 for all non-members who want to jump on board this one of a kind program.
To register, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This course only runs 1x per year, and has sold out for 4 straight years.
Finally…we have over a half-dozen teams and counting registered for the Dynamic Duo partner competition at the NLI on Sat, Sept 20.
This is so great! I love that so many of you are seeing the value in using competitions as markers in your training. Really, these could be anything – a Difficult or Tough Mudder, a weightlifting meet, a 10k…it gives our daily training purpose for the long run. And the goal? You guessed it – Your FULL EFFORT!
So, with this big competition coming up, we’re going to be having TEAM High Voltage training every week to build up to it! The first one is this Saturday from 1-3pm.
Oh – and one more thing [#stevejobsmoves] – our Rowing Coach, Jeff, will be hosting a monthly Sunday rowing class – at no additional charge! More deets to come as soon as we name the class! Thanks Jeff!
