Food drive

Winter is upon us. And with that, comes inclement weather. For all gym cancellations, please check this site for any updates.

With the holiday season upon us, we would like to help out families less fortunate than us. Over the next 2 weeks, we will be collecting non-perishable food items to donate to the local food bank. There will be a box placed in the warm-up room. Thanks for your help in advance!

    (and a decision to routinely work on DUs after workouts, so I can get better)

      1. Yes, absolutely! I tend to shy away from trying things that I absolutely bomb at, but that’s obviously the opposite of what I should be doing, if I want to get better at them!

      I could see you doing cleans out of the corner of my eye. You were finished your 2 before I even had one off of the ground. LOL! They looked really good from where I was πŸ˜‰ Nice work.

    2. Amanda

      Awesome, happy to read that you stopped when it didn’t feel right…don’t be disappointed about keeping your DL’s light, I can’t believe how much you CAN do so soon after surgery. Take care of them awesome new knees. πŸ™‚
