Adios, 2020!

Thank you to all of our athletes, family, and friends for an incredibly supportive 2020!

Despite one of the most challenging years of our lives we were able to maintain as best we could during the quarantine, bounce back and see our friends again in the driveway, and make the move to Washington Street!

And through it all we still saw a growth in our community, a lot of progress, PRs, consistency, and perseverance! Most importantly ... a lot of learning about what we are capable of. Here's to taking these lessons with us into the new year, leaving 2020 in the rearview, and seeing what incredible things we can accomplish in 2021!

We appreciate each and every one of you! ❤

The Wellness Challenge begins! Tomorrow kicks off our next wellness challenge. We hope you're excited to get 2021 off to as good of a start as we are! Yes, Julie and I are taking part as well! Have fun with this. Don't look at the challenge as painful or tortuous. Because if you do it will be hard to complete and even harder to learn from. Use it as a way to discover what clean/whole foods you enjoy, and what delicious recipes you can make with them. Explore herbs (parsley, thyme, basil, rosemary, etc) and spices (garlic, onion powder, turmeric, cumin, cayenne pepper, etc) because eating clean doesn't mean eating the same boring thing all the time. And it certainly doesn't mean every meal has to be a salad. Lean on each other, help each other, ask each other questions. There will be plenty of info shared over the next six weeks, so the more we share the more successful we will all be. Let's get this fitness party started!
