Today you may have noticed something a little different when you walked into the gym…but maybe you couldn’t quite put your finger on it.
That’s because it was under your feet!
Over the holiday weekend we were hard at work redoing the entire gym floor! We beefed up the rubber from 1/4″ and quadrupled it to be 1″ thick!
You might’ve felt the difference right away, but even if you didn’t your body certainly will!
During any kind of exercise, our muscles are depleted of oxygen. Working on a hard & unforgiving surface can lead to stress and fatigue related injuries.
Some movements we do are high impact, and performing these on an elastic rubber surface cushions and supports the human body.
Of course this didn’t all happen by some sort of magic. We had a lot of help. It was a BIG job!
So I want to say a big thank you to:
Coach Derrick, Coach Tyler, Drew Emralino, Chico, Jeremy Nocon, Anthony Moreno, Lesley, Vaz, Tom Jankas, & Fayez who all helped at different points throughout the weekend.
The biggest thanks of all goes to Coach House who spearheaded the whole thing!
Without him getting the ball rolling in the first place and planning the logistics of the whole operation, the flooring would have probably just sat in the parking lot for another 6 months.
We’ll be wrapping up little flooring odds and ends this weekend, so until then make sure to watch your step!
Congratulations to everyone who made our Labor Day “Hotshots 19” a HUGE success! We had over 30 of you come out and throw down to pay your respects to the fallen!
