Geek Out

Saturday, November 29th, 2008

Just so you guys know what’s in my head. Four of our athletes were in Olympic Lifting Class last night.  After working on our "high butt goiter" for a while so hard that "I can’t remember, I have to pee."  *This was a great class* we (I) decided to test vertical jump heights and calculate […]

Hooray for constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity producing ever increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains!

Thanksgiving Hours

This will probably find it’s way into a widget somewhere on the site, BUT here it is for your consideration.  This is NOT a democracy, nor a narco-syndacalist commune, more closely conceptualized as an oligarchy.  So feel free to post comments that may be utilized, or disregarded on a whim.   Thursday – Turkey Day: […]
