TJ’s Gym Workouts for the Week of April 25

FullSizeRender (17)


There are some cute babies out there in TJ’s land, but Vy and Matt Hyman’s baby, Tyler, looks like an artist’s rendering of what a cute baby should look like.

*TJ’s Shoulder Clinic last week was a HUGE hit.  This week, TJ will hold TWO “Ask TJ” sessions: Friday, April 29th from 4-5pm in Mill Valley and Saturday, April 30th from 8:30-9:30am in San Rafael.  Show up and ask TJ any questions you have about anything related to health, fitness, nutrition, TJ’s Gym, workouts, programming, injuries, etc. No question is a bad question.

*Dunk Tank Body Comp Measurement Sunday, May 8th in San Rafael. Email to secure a spot!

*The Whole Life Challenge is coming back!  Email to find out more and get the registration link.  Get your act together with the support of your TJ’s cronies!

*It is with a bunch of sadness that we announce the departure of Coach Jaime from the TJ’s staff.  Jaime has been a great addition to our team, and we will especially miss her attention to body mechanics in gymnastics movements and mobility exercises.  Jaime’s Tuesday classes in San Rafael will be taken over by the Anthony, who will also be slated for the Thursday 8:30 in Corte Madera.  The 8:30 Friday in Corte Madera will be in the hands of Evan, so you should all feel really good about the exceptional coaching you’ll continue to receive.  Jaime’s last week will be this week, so be sure to say a farewell for now, and look for Jaime to be subbing classes as needed in the future.  Thanks for everything, Jaime! We love you!

*The final Abs/Glutes/Mobility class will be held this Wednesday at 9:30 in San Rafael. Come get your mobility on with Jaime one last time!

*Here’s an oldie but goodie from TJ about shoulder rehab/prehab:

*Dr. Allison is back (sort 0f) with a self-help PSA on using correct grammar when posting on social media. We offer it all around here at TJ’s Gyms!
