TJ’s Gym Workouts for the Week of 3.20.17


It doesn’t matter if the work is done at sunup or sundown, it’s consistency that matters most. 

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

*HUGE CONGRATS TO TJ’s Corte Madera Teen Phenom, Zach Werner, on his double podium finish at the American Open weightliting event (hardware shown below)! Zach took GOLD in the Snatch and  Bronze in both the Clean and Jerk and Total. Zach has been lifting and training at TJ’s for years now, following in his awesome mom, Lynn’s, footsteps. Props to Zach for his super hard work, as well as all of his TJ’s coaches and supporters! Shout out, also, to Coach Jasha, who has also helped Zach get to this level. The sky’s the limit for you, Zach!

*FRIENDLY REMINDER TO PLEASE FILL OUT OUR NEW ONLINE WAIVER BEFORE YOUR NEXT VISIT!!!!  We recently updated our waiver and need all members to complete the revised version.  It takes about 2-3 minutes, so please do it now, so you don’t have to hear from us about this again! The link to the new waiver is HERE.  Please be sure to choose the “existing client” option and use the same email address you have used with us in the past. If you need to update any of your information in our system, this is a good time to do that, as well.  Please email jessica@tjsgym.com with any questions. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!

*HEADS UP FOR YOUR SAFETY AND SECURITY: Please don’t leave valuables in your car when you come to any of the gyms (and in your life travels, in general). One of our members found out the hard way on Friday that car thefts can happen in seconds, even in great neighborhoods and in broad daylight. Don’t leave any bags in your car that might look enticing, even if it only has dirty gym clothes and a stinky blender bottle in it!

*There’s one more week left in the CrossFit Open! Come down on Friday 4-6pm to cheer on our competitive team while they do their final workouts. There’s also a huge showing going down for Team TJ’s Corte Madera this year, as always, and the magic happens there Friday 4-6pm, Sat 9-11am, Sunday 10-11am. We are proud of EVERYONE who is doing the Open, judging the Open, competing in the Open, or cheering on people who are. Crossing our fingers that we will have good news to report soon regarding our Mill Valley competitive team advancing to Regionals!

*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!  Power Supply is also delivered to San Rafael. We are currently arranging tastings for Corte Madera, so we hope to add that location soon.

*TJ’s Mill Valley Bootcamp is BOOMING on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 9:30!  It’s the perfet combination of foundational strength (no barbells!) and long metabolic conditioning workouts, not to mention a welcoming crew and great camaraderie. If you know someone who might be interested, please let him/her know. No intro needed. First class is free!

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

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:

dinnerincm

*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!
