Thursday 1/18/18

Cobb County and Marietta City Schools are closed due to icy road conditions again on Thursday. Marietta Police has issued an advisory to stay off the roads if possible. Therefore MVMNT will be CLOSED at 6 AM today, Thursday 1/18, and we will re-open for the 9 AM kettlebell class; and we plan to be open at 12:15 and in the evening. I apologize for the inconvenience, but a workout is not worth risking an accident for any of you or the trainers.

Tired of “Winter” – Honestly, the Whole Life Challenge can’t come soon enough. The holidays plus these extra days off cooped up in the house making cookies and drinking Hot Toddy’s (because we needed those extra calories) have resulted in a few extra pounds and too many missed training days. I’m tired of using a snow day or work event or something slightly off routine (thankfully, the Saints and/Falcons aren’t Super Bowl bound <still love you>) as an excuse to put more garbage into my body.¬†OVER IT.

And a little more honesty? I wish more of you were willing to get on board with our WLC team. We’ll just be over here creating better habits, eating like champions, getting extra flexy and building machines. Look for us at the top of the podium!!

More teamwork makes the dream work though. And there’s still a few more days get on the train to Gainzville. Sign up for VICTORY right here.

**WLC Ambassador Nicole Pankopp Update: She got her mom, a non-MVMNT member to join the Challenge!! No doubt the entire Pankopp family is going to rock this.**
