Teams are Registered 

I went ahead and payed for all the teams competing in this year’s Desert Games. All of the teams have been picked (some thought was given as to what group of individuals would make the most WELL ROUNDED team) and each team will be listed on the main whiteboard by the end of the day tomorrow. 

We were all registered before the early bird cutoff time, which saves everybody some money and also ensures that we have our spots reserved if it gets sold out! Thanks to everyone for committing to the competition at such an early notice. Now we will start organizing Team Sessions to get everyone more than prepared for the event!

The deadline to put your name down for this year’s Desert Games is by the end of this Friday. We still possibly have 2 men’s spots in Rx’d and for sure have 1 spot for a Scaled woman.

Happy Father’s Day!

I hope all of you fit dads out there had a great day and spent some time with the ones you love. One of the attributes I am most proud of in our gym are the parents that set a positive example for their kids. Our moms and dads somehow find a way to balance work, family, and their gym time every day, setting a standard that their kids can look up to and follow. 

It’s so cool to see the kids watch their dad or mom do a squat or a muscle up then see the kids try it. You, the parent, have an opportunity to be your kids first hero. I know this because I have the opportunity to see the way your kids look at you while you’re working out. Keep leading by example guys!
