Workout of the Day

Ho Ho Ho Merry Workouts

Genesis Fitness will be sending care packages to troops for the third year during this holiday season. The packages will be sent to Marines currently deployed in Afghanistan. If you would like to contribute to the care packages, please see the list below of suggested items. The final drop off will be the end of next week; we will post a cutoff date/time as soon as our schedule is finalized for the holidays.  It is a relatively fast deadline given that these care packages must ship the first week of December to make it on time for the holidays.

Please consider giving a little something to remind the soldiers of home who can’t spend the holidays with their families.

‘Til Tuesday

Second official day of our Paleo Cafe by Alice.  Come and check out the breakfast.

Please make sure to post your personal records on the Board – congrats to Wayne who got his first rope climb Monday!

And for my evening crew, blog title is a reference to the icebreaker in our Monday 6:30pm class – see if you can figure it out!

Fight Gone Bad Style:
Front Squat 95 / 115
GHD Sit-ups

In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a four-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of “rotate”, the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep.

Impressive deadlift by Brendan!
