TJ’s Gym Workouts for the Week of 2.27.17

In 2003, Dan Freeman came into the gym and asked if the Drake High School Mountain Bike Team could use our Spin bikes for off-season training. I said sure, and the next week Dan and three kids showed up. Fast-forward to a couple of weeks ago, when the team photo was taken for the 2017 season. That’s impressive. Photo cred to Whit Ball.

WE’VE GOT LOTS OF ANNOUNCEMENTS THIS WEEK…PLEASE READ THROUGH THEM ALL FOR THE LATEST UPDATES!

TJ’s Gym Workout for the Week of 2.13.17

Screen Shot 2017-02-12 at 8.58.14 PM.png

Joe D.

This sophomore at Terra Linda has had two devastating knee injuries over the last couple of years, and he’s now a proud member of the baseball team!  Joe is hardworking, earnest, dedicated, and has a great attitude. I’m a super proud coach–he’s the kind of athlete who makes coaching a dream. Not surprisingly, his parents are also wonderful.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

*We had a great TJ’s Community kind of weekend, allowing us, yet again, to be thankful for being able to do what we do. On Friday night at the Corte Madera gym, we had a catered dinner for 30-something of our NCM volunteers. It was super fun to hang out with everyone and share stories, and we had a chance to thank them for their hard work.

compteam

On Saturday, four of our competitive team members (3 coaches–Zoe, Evan, and Kristel–plus THE Jeff Peterson) threw it down against some serious athletes at a Valentine’s-themed partner competition. They walked away with a BIG WIN (Congrats, Zoe and Evan) plus a JUST-MISS of the finals for Kristel and Jeff, who are new to the big scene and will dominate soon enough. We then had dinner with the competitors and families, yacking it up while eating delicious food at the State Room (shameless plug for TJ’s Gym member, Alex’s seriously great restaurant on 4th Street).  So nice to come together with our Peeps in good times…

*The CrossFit Open begins February 23rd.  Our TJ’s Gym Teams for each of our three locations are all set!  Just register as an athlete in the Open and then pick your affiliate (CrossFit San Rafael, CrossFit Corte Madera, or CrossFit Mill Valley). From there, you can join the TJ’s Gym team corresponding with each affiliate (TJs Gym Mill Valley, TJs Gym Corte Madera, TJs Gym Mill Valley–no apostrphes are allowed in team names!).  Last wae checked, the CrossFit Games Open website search function had a glitch and wouldn’t locate TJ’s Gym Mill Valley, but it’s there, so you should be ablet to find it via affiliation with CrossFit Corte Madera.  You can find out more info about the Open here.

We will have suggested “Open Prep” work included in the programming every day till the Open is over. Feel free to take on this supplementary work, even if you’re not participating in the Open!

Our competitve team members have been working super hard to prepare for the Open and Regionals, and we’re looking forward to watching their performances!

*POWER SUPPLY IS NOW IN TJ’s MILL VALLEY!  Just click on this link to place your orders, and you’ll get delicious meals delivered to the fridge in Mill Valley first thing on Monday and Thursday mornings! Just go HERE to place your order. First meal is free!  If you’re interested in having Power Supply delivered to TJ’s Corte Madera, please email Jessica. San Rafael has been up and running for awhile now, so just email Jessica if you need information on that location’s orders and dropoffs. 

*Check out TJ’s Gym Facebook and Instagram accounts for at-home and on-the-road workouts. We will try to post as many of these as possible, if not daily, and we’d love to know if you find them useful.

*Bootcamp in TJ’s Mill Valley is a big ol’ hit!  Tuesday/Thursday 9:30am. Please bring friends who might be curious about TJ’s but a little shy around barbells. It’s a GREAT, High-Energy class, and no formal intro is needed. Friends can email jessica@tjsgym.com to get started. First class is free!

*Barring more crazy storms hindering delivery schedules, TJ’s Gym Recovery and Protein will be coming to all three gyms by the end of the week! We can’t wait!!!!

TJ’s Gym Workouts for the Week of 1.29.17

IMG_5063.JPG

Our 7th-annual NorCal Masters event was a HUGE SUCCESS!  

Our TJ’s Gym athletes performed with grace, humility, positive attitudes, and a whole lot of awesome! They made us, and you, very proud. More on that via Instagram! We will also have many thank-you posts in the coming days and weeks and figured the equipment team is a great place to start! This photo is loaded with SOME of the members of the crew who arrived early and stayed late, sweating it out the entire time. In this photo, you’ll see Andrew, Eric, Chris, Mel, Frank, David, Brendhan, Steve, and SPENCER. Chris’s son, Cole, didn’t make the photo, nor did a number of others who busted their butts all weekend long, including, Rip, Brian U, and Mark. An event of this magnitude truly takes a village of people who care, and these are some of the fine TJ’s people who do!

TJ’s Gym Workout for the Week of 1.16.17

 

fullsizerender-30

We wish Susan and David safe passage to Colorado as they start their new adventure and will miss them.  

Announcements:

*We hope you all enjoy Martin Luther King Day and find inspiration in his message and memory. Holiday schedule will be in effect for Monday, Jan 16:
San Rafael and Mill Valley: 7:30, 8:30, 9:30 classes and 10:30-11:30 Open Gym
Corte Madera: 8am class and 9-10am Open Gym
ALL KIDS AND TEEN CLASSES ARE ON!
*A quick word about the recent Meningitis case and scare in Marin: We were deeply saddened to hear about the loss of a local man who was a beloved member of the Marin Soul Cycle community. Our hearts go out to his family and friends, and we hope they find comfort in the coming weeks. Some of you have asked about the threats of a disease like this spreading via gym contacts, so we consulted with a physician in New York who is a long-time expert in infectious diseases. He provided us with some useful facts, coming from the Centers for Disease Control:
Meningococcal disease is spread from person to person. The bacteria are spread by exchanging respiratory and throat secretions (saliva or spit) during close (for example, coughing or kissing) or lengthy contact, especially if living in the same household. Fortunately, these bacteria are not as contagious as germs that cause the common cold or the flu. The bacteria are not spread by casual contact or by simply breathing the air where a person with meningococcal disease has been.
Sometimes Neisseria meningitidis bacteria spread to people who have had close or lengthy contact with a patient with meningococcal disease. People in the same household, roommates, or anyone with direct contact with a patient’s oral secretions, such as a boyfriend or girlfriend, would be considered at increased risk of getting the infection.
People who qualify as close contacts of a person with meningococcal disease should receive antibiotics to prevent them from getting the disease. This is known as prophylaxis (pro-fuh-lak-sis). The health department investigates each case of meningococcal disease to make sure all close contacts are identified and receive prophylaxis. This does not mean that the contacts have the disease; it is to prevent it. People who are not a close contact of a patient with meningococcal disease do not require prophylaxis.
While wiping down equipment is generally good practice, it is unlikely to make a difference with a disease like this, which is spread person-to-person and not via shared objects. We do ask that you continue to wipe down your equipment after workouts, and we will continue to have equipment cleaned regularly. Should you have any questions, please email allison@tjsgym.com.
*We’ve got another WHOLE LIFE CHALLENGE TJ’s Team going! It starts Jan 21 and is a great low-cost way to get the structure, guidance, and camaraderie you might need to get yourself and your habits back on track.  Click on this link to join!
