Halloween is this Wednesday! 🧛♂️🧜♂️🧝♂️🧟♂️ Come in your workout gear or come in a costume! We want to see you at the gym on All Hallows’ Eve.
Saturdays Are For Friends! 👯♂️ You can bring a friend for free to the gym this Saturday!
This will be an all levels class; no experience required. Everyone was once a beginner, so encourage your buddies to take that first step.
Class starts at 9:30am sharp, so if you bring your friend, come by a little earlier.
Squat Motivation! I love squats. It’s not just about lifting a barbell; it’s a mental game of not stopping when things get tough. How do you handle yourself under the heavy load of a barbell? How do you handle life when things get tough?
If you need more motivation, check out Saquon Barkley squatting 495# for 7 reps at Penn State. He must be a real fun guy to tackle #respect
