Hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July holiday and weekend. Some tough workouts over those few days, and the past few weeks.  This week we'll de-load a bit on our weightlifting to recover.  Looks like we may get a little break from the heat too, but probably not the...

This week certainly has been a tough one at the box. We were all truly saddened by the passing of Coach Courtney's daughter Izzy.  Izzy was a big part of our Thursday Kid's class, and she'll be missed for sure. Courtney communicated to me on Saturday how appreciative...
