This past week was a tremendous week of training that saw a lot of people understand and move better across various skills, culminating in a really fun Saturday morning team workout with Braxton. That was super fun! I also learned that Sam Granada just got hired to work at Steve Reamey’s facility as a nurse and it’s awesome to see the community working together to help each other. Like Kong spending a few of his weekend hours to help Sean get City Egg’s system back online. Those stories are better than personal bests, those are life-changing!
I’m also hearing pretty good reports from those of you who are on 3 weeks to shredded! I’ve heard many 8-10lb losses in the first week, so keep up the good work! This is when it gets the most hard, when you most crave the foods/treats you typically have. Stay disciplined and persistent toward the goal and it’ll pay off. If you didn’t start last week, but want to do it, you still can! Pick up the kindle/ibooks version and get started! Week 2 will see a bit less food quantity, but it’ll be more than tolerable. STAY ON TARGET!
Adrienne and I also pulled the trigger on some (many) experience upgrades; reinvesting in making your time at The Standard the best it possibly can be. You already saw the new ski erg and in the next few weeks, even more will arrive. We hope you guys notice and enjoy it! Consider it early Christmas presents. 🙂
Lastly, Tim Super is down in Cincinnati learning from world-class instructors at the Level 1 Trainer course. Tim had already been shadowing me for a few weeks prior, so expect to see him running a class or two in the very near future; once he’s gotten the Standard Coaching Staff Seal of Approval.
It’s starting to get chilly in the gym, so jackets are more and more likely to be brought in. We’ll have a coat rack shortly to accommodate and we still have some sweatshirts available for sale if you’re into super soft, really warm and comfy clothing.
**Remember… bags are banned. If you bring a bag, it must stay with you in your square/area. Don’t leave them at the front. With space being limited consistently in class, we need to keep available space maximized. We post these workouts each week so you can know what you’ll need and bring it in with you. Leave your weight belts and lifters in the car when it’s a rowing and burpee workout. Cooooool? Thanks. I do actually appreciate it. Don’t make me put your bag outside.
