Well, I will try not to jinx it but I should be moving up to Portland this Thursday to prep for my bone marrow transplant on November 16. Then I’ll be at OHSU for 2-4 weeks to rebuild my immunity system then stay in Portland for 100 days from transplant day to monitor any donor rejection issues. That puts me getting home somewhere around March 1. Take it easy on Heidi and Chelsea while I’m gone. They are giving up a lot to cover my absence. In fact you should be doing something nice for them for all they do. I’ll keep you updated as I progress through the process.
Next Saturday is the Gobble Gauntlet at the State Fairgrounds. Chelsea and Jodi and KG(sp?) will team up to face the valley competition in at least 3 WODs that day. It’s free to watch so go cheer them on. Go get’em ladies!!
Here is a little article just to keep you updated.
Nike Breaks Into Boutique Fitness Class Scene with Strength Training, Running Studios
Nike is entering into yet another fitness space, this time, the world of boutique training studios. The fitness brand recently announced plans to open a network of ‘Nike Training Studios’ and ‘Nike Running Studios’ throughout the Los Angeles, CA region.
Remind me: Nike dropped its new line of fitness equipment, including barbells, bumper plates, dumbbells and more last week. While the amount of equipment being offered is limited, it’s clear Nike is trying to break further into the CrossFit/strength training/HIIT scene.
The ‘Nike Studios’ are described as “group fitness classes featuring fun and challenging workouts led by Nike Trainers that meet your evolving needs.” The three current locations are Santa Monica, Newport Beach, and West Hollywood, with more locations coming soon.
The bottom line: It will be interesting to see what type of workouts Nike Studios has to offer and if they follow the framework of CrossFit methodology. The expansion of the studios into other major cities will also be something to watch out for and see how Nike plays in the boutique fitness space.
SCHEDULE FOR THE WEEK- MONDAY-FRIDAY 5AM, 6AM, 4:30 PM AND 5:30 PM. NO SATURDAY POKER THIS WEEK
WORKOUTS THIS WEEK- KELLY, NANCY, FILTHY FIFTY, THRUSTERS AND ANNIE Man that’s a full week of bench mark workouts.
SEE YOU AT THE GYM
