Saturday July 29th, we’ll be trekking to Girdwood for an Out-of-the-Box adventure. We will be hiking Alyeska North Face (or Winner Creek for interested parties). North Face is a short 2mi, but mostly climbing. We will be taking the tram down and rendezvousing at Jack Sprat’s for yam fries to celebrate our survival…I mean accomplishment.
We will be meeting at the resort tram @ 10AM to commence the fun. As always family, friends, and kiddos welcome!
We have decided to start carrying GU products at the gym. GU is a brand that I have used for the better part of a decade (Full disclosure: Most of that time I have been a part of their “Pro Program”). Although I find that most of their products are geared towards endurance athletes and that’s where they, as a company, have their roots they are working to serve the larger athletic community.
One product I still use virtually every day are their hydration tabs. The tabs are convenient pre-measured servings of electrolyte replacements that dissolve easily and have no added sugar. There is nothing worse than a sugary gut bomb with hidden powder pockets waiting to burst into gritty, sand explosions in your mouth. Am I right?!?
Anywho…on to the good stuff…we are offering a 25% discount off MSRP for anyone who wants to pre-order during our initial purchase. Please complete our Pre-Order Form by July 31st if interested. We will be placing the order on August 1st. If there are products you’re interested in that aren’t included on the form you can request on the bottom of the form. After the inaugural order, our members will receive a 15% discount as a membership perk for as long as we carry the products.
If you’d like to learn more about GU, here is The GU Story.
I’m a little behind in getting this up, but we are early in our third training cycle for the year. We completed post-testing for Cycle 2 and pre-testing for Cycle 3 the last week of June and first week of July. We will work for approximately 8 weeks on the goals below, have a one week deload (reduction in load/volume/intensity) then retest in hopes of seeing measurable progress in the focus areas listed below.
Improve Absolute Strength
3RM BS, 1RM CGBP (correlates well w/ HSPUs)
Create Strength Speed by building on the strength base we created in cycles 1 & 2
(read dabbling in barbell oly lifting – focus on the clean and push press)
Develop Strict Gymnastics
Continue to amass volume in strict pull-ups and dips, building on Cycle 2
Building Aerobic Capacity
1.5mi run (increasing time frame from 2k erg in Cycle 2)
Several of you have asked us how you can best introduce your friends to our box. We are excited that you want us to meet your friends 😍, but we don’t want to have a free class every week that our members avoid because it’s brimming with newbies. Thus the “Fitness Contagion Project” was born!
Here is the plan:
- Simply forward the link below to your friend
- They must create a profile in Mindbody and sign our waiver
- Sign up and attend class WITH your friend. * Inferno crew: feel free to bring them to an Ignition class.*
- If your friend purchases a membership you will receive 5% off all future membership payments for as long as they remain a member (maximum of 3 “friend discounts”)
- Discount only applies to members with auto-renewing contracts (sorry no punch card members)
