WEEKLY NEWS FROM TJ’s Gym

Tom’s doing the Open. Are you?

Message from TJ: 

Today is the day when the first workout of the CrossFit Open is announced.

I haven’t participated in the Open for years, but I’ve never missed a workout announcement. This event separates us from other fitness methodologies. It holds us accountable, it challenges us, it creates an emotional reaction in us.

Not many other physical events do that for an extended period of time. Races do. But just for the duration of the race. This sucker is five weeks! It’s empirically based. It has a pool of hundreds of thousands of people your exact age, height, and weight to whom you can compare yourself. That’s an amazing opportunity, and it’s never existed before in the arena of fitness.

Some of you could care less about the Open, and that’s OK, too. It’s just something else that makes us different in a good way. We will always announce events that might inspire you to engage with our community, because it’s a good thing to do and is part of our overall vision–helping people be better any way we can.

Thanks,

TJ

P.S. Be sure to email jessica@tjsgym.com to set up a 15-minute goal-setting session with me any time!

TJ’s Gym Weekly News 2/11/18


WEEKLY NEWS FROM TJ’s Gym

Looks like Corte Madera is making a statement!

We’ve got lots to say this week, so please be sure you read the whole blog!

Message from TJ: 

Why We Are Doing the CrossFit Open…..Again.
In the next two weeks, as a member of the TJ’s Gym community, you are going to be asked to participate in the CrossFit Open (see details below at the end of the announcements section). But why, you ask?  First, let me answer for the newbies who have no idea what I’m talking about.  The Open is a chance for our community to not only test our fitness, but to have a little fun.  It’s something different and it’s a way to get slightly out of your comfort zone and push some limits a bit over the course of five weeks.  It will also allow you to bond with the members of your home gym while having a little friendly competition against the other TJ’s Gyms in the county.  You’ll be held accountable to a hard workout (whatever that means for you) once weekly for five weeks, and you’ll feel a great sense of accomplishment when it’s over. Trust me.
To my veterans, those of you who have experienced the Open fervors of 2010-14 and the subsequent dark years where the Open became an after thought: Here is the honest truth. I believe that CrossFit has now made the Open truly accessible for anyone and everyone, with various scaling options and age categories. I believe in its merits and its intentions, for anyone and everyone. But most of all, it gives us yet another opportunity to come together as a community, which is one of the cornerstones of TJ’s Gyms.
CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE PDF WITH ALL OF THE INFORMATION YOU NEED TO PARTICIPATE IN OUR TJ’S GYM CROSSFIT OPEN THIS YEAR! The Open starts Feb 23rd, so REGISTER NOW!!
I hope you all seriously consider giving this a go, and I will be cheering you on the whole way.
~TJ

TJ’s Gym Weekly News – 02/07/2018


WEEKLY NEWS FROM TJ’s Gym

NORCAL_MASTERS-075-.jpg

NorCal Masters was a huge success. Thanks to everyone in our community who was involved, from our athletes who threw down next to some of the fittest men and women in the world, to our coaches who judged and cheered, to our members who helped in all sorts of ways. NorCal Masters has become a world-renowned fitness competition for ages 35+, and we couldn’t do it without everyone’s help.

IMG_0954.jpeg

A little mid-week motivation for you from Amy Perl, who uses her fitness to triumph over MS. She attributes much of her success to her workout buddies at TJ’s Corte Madera, who keep her coming and making use of what the gym has to offer. How are you using your fitness to make your life better?

Message from TJ: 

“Hope Aint a Tactic”

Screen Shot 2018-02-07 at 8.27.23 AM.png

This quotation from the movie Deepwater Horizon stuck with me, and I’ve been using it during a number of the goal-setting sessions I’ve done this past month.  I’ve been joking with people that I “hoped” the returning of all the NorCal Masters equipment back to the gyms would go quickly.  Shockingly, it didn’t, because I used hope as a tactic.  There are abundant resources available to you to create a successful plan. You have to get out of your own way and stop dreaming and hoping.  Get that plan on paper, and begin the process of testing its merits with someone whose job it is to help.  You can do this.

*Email jessica@tjsgym.com to set up a 15-minute goal-setting session with me!
