Quick Strike a Pose! Big shout out to Dino and Roger. These two have been Balboans since 2011 and been a huge part of our ability to grow and represent consistent work.

Roger beyond being awesome at kettle bell swings and BBQing a mean beef is quite handy and responsible for most of the additions to the gym such as the pull up rig, showers, basketball hoop, Climbing wall and everything in between. While Dino holds his own as our  resident Greek and greeter along with always keeping us on our toes. Make sure you give them a big “WAZZZZUUUPPP” next time you see them

On a completely different note, we have another 4 people competing again tomorrow, this time in Chino.
We have two teams competing respectively with Paul and Russ being their first time out there. This event is unique in that participants will be wearing weighted plate carriers and it is a relatively short competition day. It is always awesome to see friendly faces.

Sneaky Butchers- Paul and Donny
Calves out for Harambe- Russell and Ben

When was the last time you changed your perspective and reflected on what you want? Do you have goals? Do you want to squat more, move faster in workouts, perform better, sleep better, improve your body composition? Assuming one of those answers is “Yes” It is important to take the time and reflect on what you want vs what you are doing.

Over the weekend take some time and think about some goals that you want to accomplish over the next month. It could be anything. But dont be afraid to go for it.
