Strong Vibes – Tribe hits the platform tomorrow morning at the 2018 Southern Open. Show your support in person AND definitely on social to Mark Sauro and Anna Fisher. Anna lifts at 10 and Mark lifts at noon. If you don’t have anything planned, go watch. Experiencing a meet in person will give you new perspective and respect for these lifters. And, you never know, you might just fall in love with the sport.

***For those of you who are more experienced but still haven’t tested for Level 2 yet, you may do an extra set or take a few minutes to practice pull-ups, handstands or another skill during the Strength segment of class, especially if you find yourself waiting around for the barbell people to finish their lifts.
