Here's what's happening around the gym!
New Training Cycle Started Last Monday!
Coming off a successful Olympic weightlifting cycle, we now are putting the focus on gymnastics. In particular gymnastics, strength, endurance, stamina. We will focus on mid level gymnastics volume in this cycle, don't be surprised if your progress here positively affects your high level gymnastics too. The benefits of muscular stamina within our sport and outside the gym are huge. It's one thing to be strong and powerful on a barbell, it's another to be able to sustain higher volume bodyweight movements.
We will expose you to a progressive dosage of gymnastics volume based on Maximum repetitions. We will focus on base movements that have transferability throughout most other gymnastics movements. Just like when we use basic lifts in a strength cycle.
Keep in mind our training will always be based around general physical preparedness. The goal is improving our gymnastics while maintaining and progressing other areas of our training as well.
House keeping request!
Please handle the chalk with care!
The chalk blocks are dense and will last a long time if they aren't dropped into the buckets. Please use what you need and place the block back gently.
We appreciate your cooperation!
We have exciting news to announce!

Bryce B - Match d my power clean PR in a complex on Wednesday and then matched squat snatch PR in an EMOM on Thursday!
Mike R - Thanks to Jesse and his in-gym motivation yesterday. When he asked if I was coming to the holiday workout, I checked out the programming and responded “I can’t” which in my mind was “I’ve already done enough this week”. Thanks to all the coaches for always pushing the athletes to help us get the most out of the workouts. l and keep us working toward our fitness goals. Today, I saw great teamwork, awesome support and stellar motivation from everyone. Glad to be a part of this great community! Have an awesome long weekend everyone! You deserve it!
Janet W - Hitting a 125lb front squat this week was such a bright spot for me!! I often feel like I am not making any progress then… that happened! My last 1RM for a front squat was 55lbs on March 14…. Yes, I am progressing!! Thankful for Jesse, Claire & the cheerleaders in the 9am class this week! Also watching Kali’s face glow when she kicked ass doing a rope climb was so inspiring!!!
