Put Yourself to the Test


Why do we test ourselves and what exactly do the results mean?


Often, when we think of test taking, we want to be prepared and ready to ace the test. However, if you approach your athletic achievements this way, you may be doing yourself a disservice.

If we don't truly test our limits, we won't have a good idea of where we are at and what we need to work on. However, putting yourself into a situation where you may "fail" the test or not do as well as you would like is very humbling and at times uncomfortable.

By testing yourself, in class, through level testing, in competitions, you open yourself up to learn your weaknesses and work on them. Time and time again, it is those individuals who humble themselves that make the most progress. They are not afraid to strip down the weight to work on technique, knowing that this will make them stronger athletes in the long-term.

I am excited to watch the following athletes take on the Level 1 Test, please come out and cheer them on:
Adrien Bottari
Greg Cohen
Val Dorante
Todd Powell
Mary K Wimsett
Daniel Rea
Aaron Holmbraker
Paula Mullally

Why You Can't Miss The Mobility Clinic!

Do you want to feel comfortable on an OH Squat or Snatch?  Is your range of motion holding you back from safer lifting positions? Would you like more flexibility and range of motion?

We'll, here's your chance to learn how to solve these issues and self improve your range of motion!

Not all of us come into our training here with active sports filled backgrounds or gymnast like flexibility, so it will take a little homework in addition to class, but YES you can relieve discomfort and gain better position in your muscles and tendons.

Join us on June 26th at 6:30pm as we mobilize our way to better Range of Motion, joint stabilization, and mechanics!


Robin always so impressive with her technique and great mobility!

Progress Challenges!

Making progress in your fitness has a way of creating overwhelming feelings of joy! You may want to shout out loud after hitting a new PR lift, share an update on facebook with all your friends about a new outfit, or simply enjoy crossing off a movement from your list of desired skills. I believe that those moments are truly rewarding, but they don't reveal the whole story for those of you looking across the room wanting similar goals and accomplishments as others.

I'd even say that in most cases of accomplishment, people over celebrate the end result instead of honoring the process of what it took to get there.

This happens too often in fitness- athletes envy the ability to lean out to a certain image, want to prove they too can lift heavy shi** to a specific weight, or outwork their role models and friends. But what is not equally happening is the value placed on the process it's taken for these athletes to get where they are.

My point is this- if you're new to training, training for a specific goal, or recently overcoming a proud goal...

We can not forget the process that gives meaning to why we train!

If you identify with this, no matter what you desire or how challenging it may be, you will succeed!  And this is why- your goal will be meaningful, personal, fun, enjoyable, exciting, and committed.

Enjoy your process of training and know why your goals mean what they do to you! Otherwise, you may be chasing somebody else's goals...
