TJ’s Gym WOD’s for the week of Dec. 30th



I’ve decided to take the week off from the blog.  I’ve included all the workouts till Sunday the 5th here in this post.

Here’s a wrap to 2013:

I’m proud.  Proud of our community, my partners, and our staff.  2013 was an incredible year of growth and change.  We all handled our business, rolled with punches, and showed why TJ’s Gym leads from the front.

I’m excited.  Excited that we get to do this for another year.  That your coaches and owners are discussing and planning and designing.  We will be faster, stronger, more efficient…..better.  Always better.

I’m grateful.  For you.  You are inspiring.  Every single one of you.  I am amazed that I wake up and get to spend time with you.  You drive me crazy, and that’s a good thing.  You have given me my dream, and I owe you a lot for that.

I’m confident.  Confident that our coaches will become significant names in this game.  Confident that our community will continue to represent the brand they are proud of.  A brand that represents a well-oiled machine that makes humans better, day in and day out.  I’m confident in myself.  That 2014 will be a year that our message becomes even more clear and our program even better.  That this is not just a place where you just go, but a place where you become who you want to be.

Happy New Year, Friends and Family.  Be proud, be excited, be grateful, be confident.  2014 is going to be awesome.
