Well, ladies and gents the 2019 Open is officially CLOSED! We are back to our regularly scheduled programming. The Open saw some amazingly tough workouts, feats of strength and athleticism, and new PRs...it was a heck a time. But now...onward and upward! In April we shift our focus to POWER. Each week we will see Olympic lifting work that will build toward the end of the month with a heavy single for both the Clean & Jerk and Snatch. These lifts are some of the purest expressions of both power and speed combined. We are looking forward to a lot of PRs! It will be a packed month with a lot of challenging and fun workouts!

I want to say thank you for allowing me the opportunity to coach you guys over this last month!! Taking over classes has been wonderful and I really love to coach you all! You will be seeing a lot more skill work throughout our programming. It is never a bad time to stop learning! Even if you believe you have reached the pinnacle of a certain movement, I bet you can learn something to refine it even more. I encourage you to look into your weaknesses outside the gym through videos or articles. I wish I had all the answers for every little thing, but I am also constantly searching for ways to get better myself!
