New Strength Cycle Starts April 19th:

Back by popular demand, we will be running another strength cycle. This 5 week Spring cycle will be another version of the Wyndler Cycle. Mondays for Back Squat, Wednesdays for Deadlift, and Fridays for Strict Press. This means the week before, April 12th, we will be re-testing all 3 of these main lifts to find an accurate 1 rep max. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this cycle, don’t worry and just show up. All the coaches will explain it before each class. We will, of course, continue doing all the workouts of the day during the strength cycle as well.

April Athlete of the Month and New Blogpost:

Our April 2021 Athlete of the Month goes to, Azteca! Azteca is a regular at our 6am class and has been a member with us for about 1 year now. While he’s not in the gym, Azteca is a full-time painter. He enjoys playing soccer and mountain biking in his free time. Azteca favorite movement is the deadlift (pulling 450lbs) and he says muscle-ups are the most frustrating (we all can relate to that). Keep up the great work Azteca. You are an amazing athlete and just an overall good person:)
