Welcome Randy Hauer and construction update

Two announcements today:

First, we'd like to welcome USAW Senior Weightlifting Coach Randy Hauer to our team.  We have known and worked with Randy in Boulder over the last 6 years, and we're thrilled that he is joining us at our new gym.  Randy is a knowledgeable, caring, and experienced coach.  We would also like to extend a warm welcome to all of the athletes that will be coming with Randy to Barbell Strategy.  We are so pleased to have you with us on this new adventure.  We now have an official USAW club, Barbell Strategy Weightlifting Club, for anyone who would like to compete in sanctioned meets.  We will not have separate classes of athletes at Barbell Strategy - some folks will train mostly during weightlifting club hours and some will train mostly in the strength and conditioning classes, but all of our classes are open to all of our members.  We are one gym, a pretty small one to start, and we will encourage you all to get to know each other.

Second, a little construction update.  The inside of the space is pretty much finished (yay!), but we still need to get the glass storefront installed.  The contractors got delayed on this because of all the rain last week, but we have been assured it will be completed by the end of the month so that the space will be ours the first week of June.

Stay tuned for more updates, and if you want to be a part of things before our official opening, don't forget to sign up for our soft opening mailing list here.
