Week of August 15, 2010

Last week we braved the indoor heat and pushed hard.  Wednesday was our last AM workout (see picture bel0w).  We’ll definitely hold a summer AM class next year. Like Carma said, AMs sound fun now, but not so fun when it gets darker and colder. Thursday, we hit a new attendance record . . . 50!  The cheerleaders continue their pre-season conditioning and I’m seeing more mother-daughter pairs.  It’s a wonderful feeling to see all age groups and fitness levels having such a great time.

From here on out, it’s Monday and Thursday night at 6:30 pm.  We’ll stay outside as long as we can.  Typically, we can last until the 2nd week in September.

Some of the AM Boot Camp Gang . . . Until next summer!

This Week in the News

1. Has anyone on the “Biggest Loser” TV show pulled a hot air balloon? Well, look at the pic below.  If you were there, please share the story with us.

Is this the strongest man/woman competition?

2. Boot Camp with LSD t-shirt/tank order will be placed tomorrow.  I’ll order extra to have on hand.  Send me an email if you have an order.  They’re $10 each.

3.  What music group/song motivates you to move? The DJ for the Boot Cancer event wants to put together a playlist.

4. I’m proud of my brother in the L.A. area. He won first place in a Crossfit competition against athletes in the central CA area.  He’s over 35, married, 3 kids, travels for work and still finds time to train and compete.  No excuses 🙂

First Place Finisher in the Central CA Crossfit Competition. I'm proud of you Jason!
