…when the going gets tough

Man oh man how great things are right now at High Voltage!

Maybe it’s the heat, maybe it’s Summer being here, maybe there’s pixie dust in the air…but the energy is amazing these days!

That workout Monday was a blast!  It’s actually a WOD I experienced while I was in Colorado a few weeks back.  I loved it so much, I brought it here to all of you to share.

The feedback was incredible!  You guys loved it and posted about it all over social media.  That’s the kind of stuff that keeps the spirit and good vibes blasting out the doors here every day.

If you love it…talk about it!  Share it!

All that sharing has side effects.  One of the best ones is the support it passes on to the people you WOD with.

When the going gets tough and you want to quit, feeding off the energy in the room and seeing your buddy working hard and experiencing the same thing as you gives you that little extra fight that you need sometimes to push through the wall.

Another great side effect is that it’s polarizing!  It draws in your family & friends…it draws in from all over the city of Burbank.

We have SO many new faces lately, it’s great!  I pride myself on knowing everyone’s name, and there are so many great new community members coming through the doors every day that my memory is working overtime to make sure I can connect with every new face.

Remember that if YOU want to share all of this with anyone you know, we have our $100 promo going until the end of this month.  Check it out here: http://www.crossfithighvoltage.com/promo/
