School is back in swing for the majority of young students. We have started to say goodbye to our college athletes, too. It has been a great summer with all the young people in the gym and we will miss them. We hope they drop-in for a workout when they are home on break. Good luck!

Here is what’s happening this week at your gym:

  • WPF Barbell is on Tuesday and Thursdays at 10:30. Beginning this week Josh is going to lead the class in a 6 week Clean strengthening series. For those six weeks, athletes will be performing lifts that help develop their clean including the accessory lifts like deadlifts, block cleans, clean pulls, front squats, and more. If you haven’t tried out Barbell, join Josh this week to work on your technique!
  • If you have nutrition questions, please email Josh at josh@warriorpridefitness.com. He would be happy to make an appointment to talk to you.
  • Battle of the Ages is Saturday August 18th. We have 6 teams competing! Heat times come out on Tuesday and will be posted in the gym for those who would like to go cheer on all the WPF teams. Good luck to everyone!!
  • If you have had an issue with your car magnet, we have ordered replacement magnets and they should arrive this week. Sorry for the inconvenience.
  • Lastly, the Social Media Challenge winner is Leigh Whitmire!! Awesome job to everyone that submitted an entry. There were some really creative posts out there. Look for more WPF contests to come in the near future.

Coming up:

  • August 25th. For 5 weeks, on Saturday mornings, Josh will lead a Snatch class for anyone interested in learning more about this Olympic lift. Look for it on Wodify soon!

Set some goals and work towards them this week!

Here’s what is happening this week at your gym:

  • Friday night, June 15th at 7:00 pm is the second Friday Night at the Bar event – “LINDA”! We will be finalizing the competitors list so if you are interested get signed up by Tuesday. Those not participating can come and cheer the athletes on. It is Bring Your Own Food and Whatnot!
  • Welcome to all of our new athletes: Aidan Loukes, Laura Ripley, Jenna Shaw, Barrett Swales, Brian Jacobson, Mac Huddleston. Welcome back to Adam and Josee Levitt and Kelly Leavell! More athletes mean larger class sizes. Please make sure to sign up for your class in advance. If you end up on the wait list it might be wise to text a Coach and confirm whether or not you can get into the class. Some WODs will require a Coach to restrict the class size due to space and equipment needed.
  • On that note, to accommodate our growing numbers we have ordered more 10 pounds bumper plates, a variety of kettlebells, and 2 more ski ergs!
  • Patrick Leavell won the challenge of the week of 100 bicep curls for time. $10 to spend in GainzVille, Patrick!
  • Many athletes in the gym are looking to put together teams for the Battle of the Ages competition on August 18 in Atlanta. It is 4 athletes from 4 decades. Visit http://battleoftheages.com to check it out and start putting together your team. We will have a sign up on the big whiteboard for people needing team members.

In the near future, look for these on Wodify and mark your calendars:

Work hard this week and have fun!
