TJ’s Gym Workouts for the Week of 8.14.17

Screen Shot 2017-08-13 at 8.18.44 PM.pngCatlin is a working mom of two young kids. This picture shows one of the dozen or so rope climbs she did on Friday.  She had never attempted any before this. Sometimes it’s tiring convincing women that being strong and functional is a good thing and that focusing on burning calories makes for a futile existence and one that doesn’t reap the rewards the marketers want you to believe you will enjoy. Anyway, here’s to Cat and all of the other strong, functional women we have the honor of coaching.

TJ’s Gym Workouts for the Week of 7.24.17

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Shout out to the Brothers Crane and Luke Maher for holding their own at a competition on Sunday, depsite being, let’s say, a little more “mature” than some of the other competitors! They had a blast repping TJ’s and testing their fitness (pictured below with Coach Susan and Steve and Susan’s daughter, Sophia).

A lifelong athlete, Chris has put his passion for fitness and health at the forefront of his path, and he’s excited to work with the community at TJ’s, in which he’s been immersed for a few months now as an athlete. Mill Valley members know Chris as the guy to finally give Zack K. a run for his money!  Welcome, Chris! We’re psyched to have you on board!

Please introduce yourselves to him and give him a big ol’ high five when you see him at the gyms!

If Jesse turns into anything remotely like the TJ’s dynamo that is Nick, we will count ourselves, and you all, super lucky!  More on Jesse (and a photo) in our next newsletter, going out later this week! Please introduce yourselves to him and give him a warm welcome when you see him at the gyms!

*We are still accepting sign-ups for our Competitor’s Program, set to begin in late August!Untitled Design copy (2)

*We love celebrating the physical accomplishments of members of the TJ’s community and always try our best to highlight them on social media. We thought it would be fun to add them to the blog from time to time, as well. Please email allison@tjsgym.com with photos, videos, and the scoop about any physical accomplishments by TJ’s Peeps! Here are few we know of in recent times:

Back in March, MV OG, Theo Emison (front of photo), summitted the Grand Paradiso, the highest peak in Italy (13,323 feet) and then skied down 5,000 feet to base camp. This past week, Theo did his first-ever bar muscle up!

IMG_5241.JPG

A couple of weeks ago, MV OG, Will Egan, ran the Double Dipsea race just six days after completing the regular Dipsea race, and on one of the hottest days of the year! Screen Shot 2017-07-02 at 8.59.14 PM.png

Last week, more MV OG’s, Felipe Gomez, Sandro Fornesi, and Adam Fong summitted Mount Shasta!

Screen Shot 2017-07-02 at 9.07.46 PM.png

*Yet another MV member, Tatum Robach, recently completed a 10-mile Tough Mudder (her third to date), with her mom and brother. She scaled all sorts of obstacles like the one in this photo, and was fully prepared because of her consistency and badassery in the gym! There’s something in the water at TJ’s Mill Valley!

Screen Shot 2017-07-02 at 9.29.20 PM.png

Our final shoutout of the week goes to 12-year-old Hollis Belger, for beating her soccer juggling record by doing 2,071 consecutive juggles in a row, alternating L/R feet. It took 23:07. Super impressive physically and mentally, and for a great cause, to boot!

WORKOUTS FOR THE WEEK–HAVE FUN!
