Nobody is signed in to the 6:45pm.  If nobody is signed in by 6pm, it will be cancelled.

ALERT – 908’s please be careful driving.  Roads are becoming icy.  Also, at the end of Summit Ave, right before you turn into the 908 parking lot is a sheet of ice.  I braked going 5mph, and stopped 20ft later.  No bueno.  Please be careful.  Please notify me if you are not going to be showing up to the later classes and you are signed in.

Weather – I have no idea what the weather will be like over the next two days.  As of now, there are no scheduled cancellations at the gym. Please actively check the website in the event we have to cancel a class.  Thanks.

  1. After a full day of trying to talk myself out of it, I am going for a grain free February. I have to include dairy or I fear i will lose 8 lbs like i did last time. I need those lbs. But no grains, no sugar, and no processed foods for sure…..starting NOW.

    1. Vincent, nice effort! Looking forward to seeing your result. I’m curious what sort of calorie count you’ll be ingesting. If you can, randomly count certain days. I would guess, since you are looking to put on some lean mass, that you should be ingesting at least 3,000-3,500 calories per day. I hope you have a big appetite!

      1. I agree, 3000-3500 calories per day will be necessary. I think I am better prepared this time around. I’ll be logging my calories, so I’ll let you know how that goes. If I can actually make it to a few workouts that will probably help too.
