WEEKLY NEWS FROM TJ’s Gym

 Message from TJ:

15 years or 15 months. Thankful for you all. 

I want to thank everyone who made it to the holiday party on Saturday night. The holiday party is a small gift to this community, to thank everyone for trusting in our vision, which is to help people, year in and year out. We’ve been doing it in this space, in this form, since 2002, and it’s a gift to be able to share in your lives over time.  If you couldn’t make it but reached out, I appreciate that, too, and we hope to see you next year.

At the party, I was able to have both serious conversations and full belly laughs with some who have been part of our TJ’s community for 15 years and others more like 15 weeks.  You are a stellar crew who make the owners and staff push ourselves to the highest level possible in providing not only a service but also a connection. We are driven to continue our hard work and to do even better in 2018 and every year moving forward. Thank you, and I hope your holiday season is as full of joy as ours was last night.

TJ’s Gym Weekly News 12/11/2017


WEEKLY NEWS FROM TJ’s Gym

 Message from TJ:

Acceptance

There are so many blogs, vlogs, and memes with platitudes telling you to ignore what “they” are saying and “trust yourself” and “use the haters to fuel you” and whatever other popcorn garbage is thrown at people to motivate or inspire. It’s cheap rocket fuel that works until it doesn’t, and then in most cases, it ends up blowing you up.

My skill set of helping people grow comes mostly from the success and failures that I have experienced, myself.  I use my own story to help others reach their goals.

My anger and humor as a young man moved me forward, but when these faltered, I grew into realizing that hustle and hard work would take me to the next level.  Still, a little dose of unhealthy rage would creep in from time to time.

When I realized that combination of fuel was unsustainable, I checked my toolbox and realized there wasn’t much left, which left me in a bit of a free fall at one point. Fortunately, I hit some branches on the way down and realized that those branches were there to slow my fall and actually help me, even if they hurt a bit, too.

Eventually, I started the process of climbing those same branches and spending some time on each one to study its message.  Some of those messages were painful, but when I realized the messages were honest and not meant to pin me down, I was able to start climbing to the next level, accepting my own limitations and receiving the help I needed.

I encourage my clients (and friends) to embrace a journey built on acceptance.  It’s critical to be able to accept that sometimes you don’t have the answers, but there are others who want to help and have the ability to help.  That’s why we are here. Just reach out.

TJ’s Gym Weekly News – 12/04/2017


WEEKLY NEWS FROM TJ’s Gym

 Message from TJ:

Culture

I feel very confident in the culture of our Gyms and our community. We are a coaching facility where methodologies supported by empirical data are used to improve the lives of our members. We make use of the power of our community to help facilitate results.

The achievement of goals in the short term is the key to long-term sustainability and success. It feels really comfortable to reread that.

The question I have for anyone reading this is: What is YOUR personal culture?

What message are you sending out into the world? Is that message helping or hurting you? The data is the proof. Are your actions, words, demeanor, and presentation helping you knock out short-term goals? 

I believe that the goal-setting protocol we use can be applied to achieving anything outside of health, fitness, and aesthetics, as well. Define the goal, and start reverse engineering the tiny steps necessary to make it happen. It starts with your personal culture.

The Holiday Accountability Plan will help you start 2018 RIGHT! The program will include daily point tracking on a self-scored leaderboard, tips and tricks to take care of yourself through the holidays, and the TJ’s camaraderie and community to keep you going. You’ll hear from TJ and Zoe every day, in one forum or another. If that’s not motivation enough, the TOP THREE people with the most points will win some fabulous prizes.

Check out the TJ’s Members Facebook Page for a video from TJ and Zoe on what to expect!

Body Composition Testing Coming to San Rafael on Saturday, December 9th. 

The Fitness Wave NorCal truck will be back at the San Rafael Gym on Saturday, December 9th from 8am- 2:30pm.  We can add later times if we fill up those slots.

Goal-setting starts with good, hard data. Whether you are finishing the Pre-Holiday Nutrition Program, or you are wanting a baseline to maintain through the holiday season, body comp testing will give you that important data.

WE NEED A MINIMUM NUMBER OF PEOPLE BY WEDNESDAY TO KEEP THE TRUCK ON THE SCHEDULE, SO PLEASE SIGN-UP ASAP!

Email jessica@tsgym.com to get on the schedule.

STRONGMAN Seminar 2.0 with Arielle coming Sunday, December 10th.

Come to the San Rafael to gym to play with some new toys.  We will build on your new found knowledge as a returning participant, or if you are new, you get to add some tools to your arsenal.

STRONGMAN Seminar for the Strong People of TJ’s Gym.

You’ve played with the sleds and sandbags, and now it’s time to play with some more big toys! Yoke work and farmer carries are fun tricks to add to your toolbox to develop overall core strength, power, and control. We will learn how to use the yoke (which lives at our San Rafael location), as well as how to make use of various other equipment in the gym to mimic the demands of the yoke.

Carrying odd objects allows your body to develop functional strength that carries over into weightlifting, gymnastics, and, most importantly, everyday life. No matter where you are on your fitness journey, yoke and farmer carries are great ways to augment your training.

TJ’s Gym Weekly News – 11/27/2017


WEEKLY NEWS FROM TJ’s Gym

 Message from TJ:

The TJ’s Gym Community started Thanksgiving off with a bang! Special thanks to Coach Nick for all of his hard work, and thanks to everyone who showed up to take part in this awesome tradition!

Recently, I’ve become overwhelmed with the thought of what the hell is going to happen with all this local retail space once Amazon takes over the world. The downtown areas of San Rafael, Mill Valley, Larkspur, Fairfax, Sausalito, etc. have thousands of spaces spaces that need to be filled.

The good news is that I’m not worried about my business when it comes to Amazon. Thanksgiving morning we had the largest turnout ever for our annual workout at the Redwood track. Well over one hundred individuals were there, but I know it wasn’t for the brilliant programming or for how many calories they needed to burn. As humans, we have a chip deeply embedded in our brain that makes us yearn for community.

Allison wrote the first-ever book about CrossFit(TM) called The Power of Community, in which she included a small thesis on the importance of community followed by rich examples of the power of human connectionThursday morning was a great example of how people thrive when they invest their time not only in a personal endeavor, but in their tribe, as well, along the way.

Thank you to all of you who make up this community for helping it thrive more and more with each passing year.

TJ’s Gym Weekly News 11/20/2017


WEEKLY NEWS FROM TJ’s Gym

 Message from TJ:

Being consistent with friends is way more fun!

Last week, a member asked my opinion of CrossFit’s original programming model of three days on, one day off.  Back when we were some of the first groups of people doing CrossFit, we followed this model, because it’s what CrossFit preached, and who were we to argue?

In the 12 years we’ve been doing this thing, we have put enough people through CrossFit and our own program to realize that days off will find you. You don’t need to look for them. I’m not talking about hitting the workouts for months and months in a row with no days off, but the reality is that that’s not going happen. I do believe that working out with intent as many days as possible in your life will create a pattern of good behavior outside of the gym. Fully developed adults with jobs, homes, kids, and all kinds of other responsibilities don’t regularly train at an intensity that would demand a regimented rest-work schedule.

Get your butt to the gym, get in the garage or the living room for about 10 to 20 minutes, and push as hard as you can so you can get some sort of real result when it’s all over. I promise that if you do that regularly, many other things will fall into place, including rest days.

ANNOUNCEMENTS


 Thanksgiving is coming! 

Come to our 15th-Annual Thanksgiving Day Workout!  9:00am at Redwood High School track. Rain or shine. Open to TJ’s members and friends and family.

TJ’s Gym Weekly News 11/13/2017


WEEKLY NEWS FROM TJ’s Gym

Allie and Sandro Tied the Knot in a magnificent ceremony in Mexico with a number of TJ’s superstars in attendance. We wish them all the best in their married life and can’t wait till they move up here to the ‘burbs!

 Message from TJ:

Sometimes when I see a jogger or someone walking with their Yoga mat, or even someone in my own class, I wonder what their hopes are for themselves as a result of their workout.

My heart sinks a little bit to think that they might be placing their chips on a lie.

A lie that sounded something like, “This will create long, lean arms and legs,” or “Eating this will burn body fat,” or “This many minutes on this machine will help you lose this much weight.”

I heard a great quotation today:

“No one gets realer than parents.  They compliment you behind your back but talk shit to your face.”

That’s, in essence, what a coach’s job is.  Sure, we sprinkle some compliments to your face, as well, but only if you’ve earned them.  And you earn them by following a scientifically sound, empirically based plan to which you are held accountable. You don’t earn them by blindly falling for someone’s false marketing directed at you.

TJ’s Gym Holiday Party – 12/16/17

Mark your calendars. This party is the real deal, and it’s open to CURRENT TJ’s Gym members age 21+, plus one significant other. If you are not on the TJ’s Gym Members Facebook page yet, now is a great time to join and RSVP.

STRONGMAN Seminar 2.0 with Arielle coming Sunday, December 10th.

Come to the San Rafael to gym to play with some new toys.  We will build on your new found knowledge as a returning participant, or if you are new, you get to add some tools to your arsenal.

STRONGMAN Seminar for the Strong People of TJ’s Gym.

You’ve played with the sleds and sandbags, and now it’s time to play with some more big toys! Yoke work and farmer carries are fun tricks to add to your toolbox to develop overall core strength, power, and control. We will learn how to use the yoke (which lives at our San Rafael location), as well as how to make use of various other equipment in the gym to mimic the demands of the yoke.

Carrying odd objects allows your body to develop functional strength that carries over into weightlifting, gymnastics, and, most importantly, everyday life. No matter where you are on your fitness journey, yoke and farmer carries are great ways to augment your training. 

Email jessica@tjsgym.com to register.

Body Composition Testing Coming to San Rafael on Saturday, December 9th. 

The Fitness Wave NorCal truck will be back at the San Rafael Gym on Saturday, December 9th from 8am- 2:30pm.  We can add later times if we fill up those slots.

Goal-setting starts with good, hard data. Whether you are finishing the Pre-Holiday Nutrition Program, or you are wanting a baseline to maintain through the holiday season, body comp testing will give you that important data.

We will also be announcing a Winter Holiday Lifestyle and Accountability Program soon. It’ll be a fun, friendly competition to encourage you stay focused during the holidays and to make more good lifestyle decisions than poor ones. Stay tuned, and get ready to out-perform your peers for some great prizes on top of the best prize of all: feeling great come January 1st!

$60 TJ’s Members. $70 non-members. Email jessica@tsgym.com to get on the schedule.

Get that teen/tween in your life moving!

Get your Teen/Tween moving!

There is no time like the present to get your teen or tween involved in our growing youth program.  In between sports seasons is a great time for your child to improve core stability, body strength, and overall conditioning.

The current session ends on 12/10.  We will have a two-week holiday session.  We will not be hosting any youth classes from 12/25 – 01/01.  If your son or daughter are in our Teen classes, we will be open to having them at our adult classes that week.

If you have a sports team interested in focused strength, conditioning, and team building work, please email jessica@tjsgym.com, and we can create a program for you!

TJ’s Gym Weekly News 11/06/2017


WEEKLY NEWS FROM TJ’s Gym

Message from TJ:

Throughout the past 25 years of goal-setting with people from all walks of life, my opinions and attitudes have changed, always based on the successes and failures of my clients.  Most recently, I have fully embraced consistency as being a major factor in whether or not goals are met.  Think of it this way:

You fall into poor health, a poor attitude, and poor decision-making, because, consistently, you aren’t taking steps to be better.

I have challenged my recent goal-setting clients to do something physical every single day. The rule is that there needs to be intent.  Jogging, or Yoga, or swimming don’t count.  There needs to be a baseline being set or a baseline being challenged.  I’d be happy to talk to you about it in person. Just reach out. ~TJ

We will be playing with new toys on Sunday, December 10th. Returning athletes will add tools to their toolbox, while newbies will dive in with the new content. This will sell out fast, so get on the registration quickly once we post it! Feel free to hold a spot now by emailing jessica@tjsgym.com.
