TJ’s Gym Workouts for the Week of 10.23.17

Julie and Theo brought their own cheering sections. The Rodeo is such a fantastic event for spouses, kids, family, and friends to see competitors in a different light and cheer them on. The 10th annual was pretty sweet.  I love this event and how it brings together our community. The Rodeo is about so much more than the results, but it’s also important and fair to acknowledge those who earned podium spots, because it takes talent and athleticism and hard work to get there. On that note, here are our three podiums from yesterday:

IMG_1026

Men: 1st place went Jesse Maddex (back from a hiatus last year due to a stomach bug), part of TJ’s Gym’s competition team. Not a huge surprise that Jesse was standing tall yesterday. 2nd/3rd was a tie, broken by newcomer, Ze Madeira’s 1st place finish in an event. Ze has also been training with our Team, so again, not a huge surprise. It’s always nice to have new blood in there! And in the always-a-bridesmaid-never-a-bride category, tied for 2nd in points, was Luke Maher. Consistency is key, and this guy’s been on the podium more years than we can remember. The reality is that it might be harder to podium year in and year out than it is to win once and then never compete again. Luke shows what it means to be dedicated long-term and keep upping your game to continue to make improvements and hang with the big guns, no matter who they are. And quick note about Josh Greene and Paul Hughes who rounded out the top 5 men. Josh recently started focusing his training more seriously, joining our competitor program alongside athletes like Luke above, and it shows. Meanwhile, Paul, a grizzled vet who wore a Rodeo 2011 t-shirt yesterday and likely competed in 2010 but we are all too old to remember, also crushed it yesterday, even after missing a lift and taking a zero for part of the scoring in the first workout. He fought back hard, chin up, and went on to take second place in the high-skill, heavy-weight final workout. No joke. Congrats, Paul. You’ve still got it! Congrats also to Hyden P. and Kai K., two of our older teens, for competing with the men and doing a darn good job. Both of these kids are going places, in and out of the gym! And honorable mention goes out to Gordon F. for his amazing attitude in doing men’s Rx workouts after his partner (his daughter!) got sick. He took it like a champ and made us all smile with every rep. Big congrats also go out to Tim Piastrelli for going along with the whole Rx thing even when he’d originally signed up to do Scaled. He’s got a great attitude, a level head, a super calming wife, and a generally positive outlook, and he may have surprised himself with how much he accomplished yesterday. Speaking of great attitudes and good sportsmanship, Andrew Temkin is always in for the experience and always ready to improve. Next year, he might even learn to moderate the adrenaline rush (inside joke).

IMG_1006.JPG

Teens: 1st Place Cole Ford, the elder statesman of the bunch, has put in some work and lots of consistency in the past few months, and it shows. 2nd place: Payton P. loves TJ’s, and he is loved by us all. If you can watch that kid do anything without being inspired, check your pulse. 3rd place: Josh B. was the model of determination and perseverance, reminding us all that it’s not about who comes in first, but it’s about us all finishing and doing it together.

IMG_1009.JPGPartners: 1st Place: Tatum Robach and Zach Knight. Two total studs who are also very young. But they are great competitors and amazing athletes, so let’s not let the fact that we all wish we were their age prevent us from appreciating their prowess. Fun to watch, for sure! 2nd Place: Amy Blackburn and Colin Gray. Fierce duo. Colin has been around since he was a young teen, and he’s all about having a great time. It’s almost by accident that he’s as competitive an athlete as he is. Amy B. is no stranger to podiums. She’s quite possibly the strongest woman we’ve ever had at TJ’s Gyms, and that’s saying a lot. 3rd place: Caitlin Durling and Brian Urey. Brian stole Caitlin from her husband, Jake, and despite a nagging back, she was a gold mine for Brian. These two are the dark horse superstars of the day, methodically and steadily keeping pace with the others. Nice work! There were so many fabulous partner teams, so many laughs, so many great attitudes. Leppones and Alvarado, King and Queen of CM; Samantha and Chris F. two of the nicest and most positive people around; Fafa and Johnny, all about soaking in the experience; and Theo and Julie, two dynamos from MV with BIG hearts and lots of athletic talent. Next year, we predict podium for those two!

More Rodeo photos and fun facts to come via social media…

Programming note: I’m looking forward to us starting our new round of programming, working on our basic movements and moderating intensity in favor of technique. This will give us a chance to recover slightly from the last few weeks of high volume and high intensity,  and it will also build our baseline endurance and stamina. You’ll be seeing a lot of work on single-sided strengths. It’s a great opportunity to be working on mobility and “issues” that we might have in some of our joints. It’s also a great time to create a relationship with a coach who can help you with specific body issue, skill development, and goal outlining.

*Class schedule additions: We now have M-F 9:30am CLASSES in Mill Valley! Tu/Th Bootcamp and M, W, F regular group classes. Have fun!

After two weeks of our Adopt-a-Family effort, our TJ’s community and family and friends have outfitted and supported more than 60 families affected by the North Bay fires. We are still going strong, so please refer families in need to this link

*Sign up for The Strong Person Seminar. Now!

A note from Coach Arielle: The first Strongman Seminar will dive into two of the fundamental aspects of Strongman training: sandbags and sleds. These movements are perfect for anyone looking for supplemental work to a comprehensive strength program, or a new set of fun and stimulating modifications for classes, which will help avoid the impact of repetitive movements. In our two hours together, we will break down how to pick up, squat, and clean a sandbag, as well as the many variations of moving a sled. Bring plenty of water and be prepared to move! We will be playing with all of our new toys as we learn how to use them. Email jessica@tjsgym.com to register.

*Build Your Aerobic Base with Coach Mika

A note from Mika: “Cardio? You mean anything more than five reps?” It’s a common joke in the gym; but, unfortunately, there’s a lot of truth to it. CrossFit™ is an indispensable strength-and-conditioning program, which has helped transform weekend warriors into elite athletes at TJ’s Gyms. However, many of us are missing a fundamental ingredient to our training and could be performing much better in the metabolic conditioning programs of our workouts. Do you feel like METCONS aren’t getting easier for you? Do you feel like you’re dragging by the end of classes? Do you race against someone in your class but always seem to come up short? It may not be your mental toughness that’s lacking–it may be that you need to improve your Aerobic Base. LET’S CHANGE THAT! The Aerobic Conditioning Club will build an better aerobic base for you. With focused running, rowing, and other single-modality workouts, Coach Mika will bring individualized attention to each athlete, programming two workouts per week for his team of athletes to accomplish, either on their own time or in a group setting. One day will be speed work, while the other will be focused on longer endurance training: tempo runs, fartleks, long slow distance. Athletes will see dramatic changes in aerobic performance in the gym, even after one six-week cycle. Come train with Mika and get even fitter than you already are! Email jessica@tjsgym.com to register.

The 10th Annual TJ’s Rodeo was Awesome.

FullSizeRender 9

Favorite moment of the day: Teen Josh B. fighting through some dumbbell work while two of his totally awesome TJ’s teen coaches (Gabe, left and Anthony, right) cheer him on and coach him up. What you can’t see are the hundred-ish people on the other side of the gym screaming for him, as well. Great job, Josh! We’re so glad you competed!

Ten years later, and the TJ’s Rodeo still brings out some of the best aspects of our community. From freakish displays of athletic prowess, to heartwarming moments of friendship and camaraderie, to great music, plenty of laughter, and great conversation among spectators, the Rodeo never disappoints. We are tired, but riding the high, and we hope that those of you who competed or spectated are, too. Thank you just isn’t enough to say to all of you who helped make this event happen. We will do a full rundown and thank-you’s to all involved tomorrow night, along with the rest of the content we normally post on Sunday nights, but for now, we send out a huge thanks to Jessica, without whom this event would not have happened.

TJ’s Gym Workouts for the Week of 10.16.17

This has been a rough week for all of us. Our hearts are with those affected by the horrible fires up north, and we hope you and yours are safe.

The TJ’s Army has been hard at work these past few days. Headed up by Allison, Sherri, and Linley, the people in our community and those connected to us, have been executing a legit adopt-a-family program, supplying and delivering specifically requested clothing and other needed items and supplies to almost 40 families. We have also fed and hydrated Army National Guard crews and members of an assisted living center who were displaced. I am so proud to be part of a group that gives so much in this organized a way and on such short notice. It’s been pretty incredible to witness. Here are a few photos of the effort:

Those are just a few of the many stories and families we’ve touched. If you know of any families in need, please share our wishlist sign-up link with them! Thank you to the many, many people in our midst for stepping up and doing what you can to help out so many people in need.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: All classes are on as usual. If you have questions about the air quality and how it impacts your workouts, please see our posts in the TJ’s Gym Facebook group. 

*ADDITIONAL 9:30am CLASSES ARE BEING ADDED TO THE MILL VALLEY SCHEDULE, STARTING MONDAY, OCTOBER 23rd. M, W, F 9:30 classes will be regular group CrossFit classes, with All Levels, Allison’s Program, and Wrench options available. T, Th will remain as BOOTCAMP classes. We will keep the M, W, F 9:30’s on the schedule for two months, at which point we will evaluate attendance to determine if they are viable. Historically, these times have not been well attended, so please show up if you want to see them on the schedule long-term! THANK YOU!

THE RODEO IS THIS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 22nd!!!! We have a men’s individual division, a teen division, and a male/female partner division. There is still time to register, as we will close it tomorrow (Monday) at 5pm. GET IN THERE and don’t miss the chance to grab a little community love and push your fitness limits! It’ll be a great time! If you are a relatively advanced male and want an awesome partner and shot at the podium, please email allison@tjsgym.com ASAP! We have a rockstar female in need of a partner.

TJ’s Gym Workouts for the Week of 10.9.17.

There is so much about this picture that represents what we’ve built, both intentionally and by accident. Back in the day, I was always hoping to build a tavern-like atmosphere where locals and travelers, alike, could come and be welcomed. That’s seen here in the folks inside and outside of the gym. Mine was never meant to be a place of perfection, which is evident in the busted dumbbell/doorstop. Sondra, on the rower, is a great representation of the concept that strength is not gender-determined but is for ALL people. This became especially relevant to me when my daughters were born. The banners pictured above reflect some of our most important achievements as a family and a community (Juggling for Jude, TJ’s Gyms, NorCal Masters). The reflection in the window on the right reflects the place where we’ve made it all happen–Mill Valley here, and globally in our three locations in Marin. Thank you for being a part of it all. We are lucky to know, serve, and work alongside so many wonderful people. 

SO MANY ANNOUNCEMENTS, SO MANY OFFERINGS, SO MUCH GOING ON! CHECK IT ALL OUT!!!!!

Screen Shot 2017-10-08 at 9.08.31 PM.png

*RODEO UPDATE: The TJ’s Rodeo registration is upon us, and we really need to know who’s in. If you plan on competing, please register NOW. We really need to assess numbers and how to best arrange divisions. At this point, we will have enough for men individuals, teens, and likely partners, but we need those of you who have committed verbally to make it official ASAP!!!! If you’re in, please register using one of the links below.

Individual Athletes
Partners

Due to numerous requests, I’ll be giving another talk on Teen/Tween Nutrition, this time at TJ’s San Rafael. Hope to see you there, and be sure to tell your friends!

*We are looking to add this awesome new program called SWEATFEST to TJ’s San Rafael. It’s a bootcamp-style, conditioning bonanza with just enough foundational strength training with dumbbells. No barbells allowed, lots of great energy, fun music, and a great workout, all TJ’s-style! Stay tuned, but we are looking to launch as early as next week (October 16th) Woohoo! And be sure to spread the word to your non-TJ’s friends! First class is FREEEEEEEEE!

*This flyer really should say strong PERSON seminar!

*Looking to improve you conditioning or train for a specific endurance event? We’ve got you covered. Check out Mika’s new aerobic conditioning program!

*We are seeking new additions to our amazing staff! Spread the good word!

WORKOUTS FOR THE WEEK–LOTS OF LONG CONDITIONING WORKOUTS IN THIS PHASE!  WOOHOO!

TJ’s Gym Workouts for the Week of 10.2.17.

The post workout group walk-about. Possibly the most important part for the mind, body, and soul.

IMPORTANT STUFF WITH UPCOMING DEADLINES AND DATES! CHECK IT ALL OUT!

*Teen/Tween Nutrition Talk is THIS WEDNESDAY! Open to non-TJ’s members, and teens/tweens are welcome. We hope to see a lot of people at this talk!

 

THE TJ’s Gym Rodeo is just 3 short weeks away!!!!!  Registration is live, and we need to to register by October 8th! At that time, we will assess the registration across divisions to be sure we have legitimate numbers in each group. If we need to collapse some divisions, we will do so. For example, last year we had teen boys compete in the Mens Scaled division, but we still awarded separate prizes to the teen winners. If we don’t have enough women or men in a given category, we will help you find partners to join the partner division. As in past years, partners are Male/Female, but if two women are super excited to compete together, we welcome you to do it for fun! 

For those of you who are newer to TJ’s Gym and have never been part of the Rodeo, you’re in for a real treat. It’s always one of the most inspirational and fun days of the year for our community (toss-up between this and the holiday party), and it is 100 percent about putting yourself out there a little bit to test your fitness in the most supportive and upbeat environment you will find in sports. The goal is to measure progress, have fun with your community, get out of your comfort zone a little, and access parts of yourself you might not usually call upon in your daily functioning. We promise you’ll have fun! If you want to compete with a partner but need help finding a good match, just email me at allison@tjsgym.com, and I’ll work with our coaches to find you a partner.

REGISTRATION LINKS ARE HERE:

Individual Athletes (Includes TEENS)
Male/Female Partners
Hit up any coach with questions, and DON’T miss out on this awesome day!!!!!

*WE ARE LOOKING FOR MORE AWESOME COACHES TO JOIN OUR TEAM! Please spread the word if you know of anyone who fits the bill!

TJ’s Gym Workouts for 9.25.17

After dropping off Hollis for warmups before her soccer game in Union City, I headed to the closest coffee shop around. I got out of the car and stopped dead in my tracks. Memories flooded in, as I saw this brick bench outside of Mr Kebabs, the place I had lunch while taking my very first Level 1 Cert at CrossFit One World almost 10 years ago to the day. We had been doing CrossFit- style workouts for a couple years by then, but this was where I committed full-throttle by becoming certified for the first time. Since then, it’s been an incredible journey of learning life lessons and wondering what we were doing at points along the way. Ten years later, there is now complete clarity. Keep asking people how we can help. Sometimes the answer is push-ups, sometimes it’s just listening, and sometimes it’s offering a hug. Thank you all for trusting us to help. I hope to come back here to Mr.Kebabs for my 20th -50th anniversary lunches and let the memories flow. Couldn’t be happier or prouder about how far we’ve come. Together.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
