Thanks for all the replies from our survey! That really helps me plan for the next couple months. I will look over the results further and see what changes or additions need to be made.

Don’t forget to have your “after” shots taken this week!

I’d like to try collecting the BOD POD registrations this week, so if you can, bring $22 to class. Thanks!

Update on Moga. Dawn and I had a slight mis-communication! Here’s the scoop:

1. Free Moga classes May 3rd (7am, 11:45am) and May 5th (8:30am)

2. 6-week session begins on Tuesday, May 10th at the above times.

3. New student price (for first-timers): $69, after that the regular price will be $78 per 6-week session. Drop in rate is $17.

Rack Lunges
(Sorry if you got these last week!   The morning group was supposed to push sleds, but too cold and blustery early am).

12 Min AMRAP:

Sprint 100m
10 Push-ups (lift hands off floor)
20 Sit-ups


1. 6-week Moga session registration HERE:  $57.50 prorated price since the first week is free!

2.  Cow-sharing begins this week! I have John D’Amato’s number at the gym (or email me) if you want to order a quarter or an eighth of a cow.   For those of you who have ordered beef before, you really can’t think of going back to conventional meat.  It’s that good.

A. $2.20 per pound (a quarter will range from 170-180 lbs)
B. Steers are fed one bucket of corn (that they grow themselves) every two weeks as a supplement. Other than that, they are all GRASS FED.  Organic pastures.
C. Butcher fee for a quarter is about $125.00

Folks, it’s totally worth it to stock your freezer.  Your kids will be happy to eat the best hamburgers on the grill all summer long…..

I just can’t get over how much heart Beth, Jared and Kevin have had a sectionals.  This week’s past WOD was a true test of “just doing your best” and being proud to even show up.

Part of the WOD was 30 overhead squats at 90 lbs. for women (after finishing 60 burpees hopping over a barbell).  Beth’s previous 1 Rep Max for Overhead squat was 85lbs.  Now, imagine doing ANYTHING over your 1 rep max after getting your butt kicked by that many burpees!  Beth pulled off 6 out of 30, which I’m proud of!  Amazing what one can do.  Totally crappy picture, doesn’t do justice!

More photos will be uploaded on our FACEBOOK page.
