RODEO WRAP-UP and Workouts for the Week of 10/24/16

Thanks to Rodeo athlete, Rich Searle, for this fabulous photo!


Our 8th-annual TJ’s Gym Rodeo was a HUGE success! Thanks to our amazing coaching staff, our solid crew of eager and willing volunteers, the hundreds of people who came to spectate and cheer, and, of course, the super badass athletes who put it all on the line to compete with each other today. This event is always a community builder and leaves us feeling lucky and blessed to be a part of this thing we do together. Can’t wait till next year, and in the mean time, mark your calendars for the 11th-annual Thanksgiving Day Workout at Redwood High at 9am. Plan to bring friends and family–the more the merrier!

We will be posting loads of photos and a super-cool video as soon as possible, so stay tuned for those. Below are the results from the day, but first please these important announcements. Also, we will post the rest of the week’s workouts tomorrow night. This is a TESTER week. Rodeo athletes can ask coaches for substitutes if need be. Monday and Tuesday are both Rodeo workouts.
