TJ’s Gym Workouts for the Week of March 23


And the winner of the Sunday Kids BootCamp Class with Coach Zoe Hide-and-Seek game goes to….Anna L! For those of you who follow us on Facebook, you’ll remember that it was her father, Anthony (ALow), who “found” Pete in his car about a mile from the gym. There has to be some kind of cosmic connection between these two events.

*NO MORE BARBELL CLUB IN MILL VALLEY ON WEDNESDAYS! Instead, come enjoy open gym from 4-6pm, or regular classes at 3 and 7pm.

*The Corte Madera evening class schedule changes begin this week!

Mondays and Wednesdays 5pm; Tuesdays and Thursdays 5:30pm

*For those of you participating, don’t forget to submit your scores for the CrossFit Open workout 15.4 by Monday at 5pm!
