This has been a rough week for all of us. Our hearts are with those affected by the horrible fires up north, and we hope you and yours are safe.
The TJ’s Army has been hard at work these past few days. Headed up by Allison, Sherri, and Linley, the people in our community and those connected to us, have been executing a legit adopt-a-family program, supplying and delivering specifically requested clothing and other needed items and supplies to almost 40 families. We have also fed and hydrated Army National Guard crews and members of an assisted living center who were displaced. I am so proud to be part of a group that gives so much in this organized a way and on such short notice. It’s been pretty incredible to witness. Here are a few photos of the effort:
Our house looks like a fancy Goodwill.
Some thank-you notes from two little girls we helped.

Those are just a few of the many stories and families we’ve touched. If you know of any families in need, please share our wishlist sign-up link with them! Thank you to the many, many people in our midst for stepping up and doing what you can to help out so many people in need.
ANNOUNCEMENTS: All classes are on as usual. If you have questions about the air quality and how it impacts your workouts, please see our posts in the TJ’s Gym Facebook group.
*ADDITIONAL 9:30am CLASSES ARE BEING ADDED TO THE MILL VALLEY SCHEDULE, STARTING MONDAY, OCTOBER 23rd. M, W, F 9:30 classes will be regular group CrossFit classes, with All Levels, Allison’s Program, and Wrench options available. T, Th will remain as BOOTCAMP classes. We will keep the M, W, F 9:30’s on the schedule for two months, at which point we will evaluate attendance to determine if they are viable. Historically, these times have not been well attended, so please show up if you want to see them on the schedule long-term! THANK YOU!
THE RODEO IS THIS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 22nd!!!! We have a men’s individual division, a teen division, and a male/female partner division. There is still time to register, as we will close it tomorrow (Monday) at 5pm. GET IN THERE and don’t miss the chance to grab a little community love and push your fitness limits! It’ll be a great time! If you are a relatively advanced male and want an awesome partner and shot at the podium, please email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP! We have a rockstar female in need of a partner. If you’d like to help out at the event, please email email@example.com. THANK YOU!
*NEW TEEN SESSION STARTS TOMORROW!
*STRONGMAN: A note from Arielle: The first Strongman Seminar will dive into two of the fundamental aspects of Strongman training: sandbags and sleds. These movements are perfect for anyone looking for supplemental work to a comprehensive strength program, or a new set of fun and stimulating modifications for classes, which will help avoid the impact of repetitive movements. In our two hours together, we will break down how to pick up, squat, and clean a sandbag, as well as the many variations of moving a sled. Bring plenty of water and be prepared to move! We will be playing with all of our new toys as we learn how to use them.
