March 20 2020

Week 6 Weigh Ins Start Tonight!

The other night one of you asked, “What are we gonna do about the weight loss challenge?” and the answer seemed obvious to me; NOTHING DIFFERENT, we should continue to stay on track and get in our weekly weigh ins, keep up with our workouts and hopefully reach our goal come April…  Yes, some of you are in different situations than you were a few weeks back with work, school and social distancing controlling some of the things you are able to do but that should not change what you said you were going to do when this all started.  Of course these changes may have made this goal a little more difficult but many things have not changed, you can still (and should) be controlling the calories you take in, you can still get your workouts in whether with us or at home and you can still get in here and weigh in weekly even if you are keeping yourself out of groups for the time being.  If you need to get in here without anyone else, just ask me and we will set up a good time to come in.  The point is that just because a lot of things are out of our control right now, it doesn’t mean we need to lay down and forget about the goals we set for ourselves before things changed.  

Class at 5PM Tonight  

Strength and Conditioning:

Every 3 Minutes begin a new round of: 

Run 400M 
Max Squat Clean and Jerks 155/105

Starts with 400M Run, Once you have reached 30 Total Clean and Jerks you are done.

At Home/No Equipment workout: 

Every 3 Minutes begin a new round of:

**Fill your backpack fully tight with laundry, if you think its too light, add some books to the middle or RUN FASTER....


We are continuing the current adult group class schedule as is for the time being but classes are for current members only, no drop ins, new members or exceptions will be allowed. Obviously if you have been around anyone exhibiting symptoms of any kind or you yourself are not feeling at all 100%, have been traveling or just do not feel comfortable being around other people right now because of the risk of contacting or transmitting the virus do not come to class. This way our groups can remain small and with diligence and extra care to keep ourselves and the equipment clean, we can still get our 1 hour of work in and break from the news and stress of the current times. For those of you that fall into the aforementioned categories I will also be posting alternate versions of the workouts here during this time that you can do at home if you feel most comfortable keeping to complete social distancing. This is not me taking the situation or making this decision lightly. Believe me, the last thing I want is to come in contact with any virus or help spread one. This is an effort to comply with the current standards and to stand by my feelings that your health and fitness should remain a priority in your life no matter what else is going on. This is how we make and keep our immune systems strong all year long, why stop when it’s strength is most needed. I’m glad that we are lucky enough to still do so with little interruption being that we are a small, private club and able to control the traffic in the gym at any time, a luxury many gyms like us don’t have and I feel for those businesses. Classes for the time being will be shortened to 45 mins to allow time for extra cleaning of equipment and less overlap of clients in the facility at one time. Stay healthy - Dave
