Happy New Year!

To start 2016 with a bang we keep on keeping on with our Back Squat Program. Can’t remember where we are going with all this squatting? Refresh yourself on the method behind the madness (scroll down for Programming.) We have seen very impressive gains so far, and we look forward to really making this New Year a Happy New Year.


Progress is only possible if you keep up with your mobility. Keep those legs and hips OPEN. Show up to class early. Stay late. Get it done. Subscribe to MobilityWOD to work on it at home. Mobility can be applied to your life all day long! Are you a hair dresser, a dentist, sit at a desk for 80% of your work day, or in a profession where your back is slouched and your shoulders rounded while you get the job done? Mobility will help you feel AMAZING at the end of the work day. Just five minutes will return vitality and well-being to your tired body. The small investment in time pays off. Again, practice what we do in classes, or subscribe to MobilityWOD to stay up on the latest movements that will make you feel ALIVE!

Resolve to Do Something Different

Resolutions. Did you set them? How big did you go? And did you address all the parts of your life? Resolutions and Intentions work. We just have to pay attention to ourselves and our lives! We look forward to a vibrant 2016 with all of YOU.happy new year resolutions
