Field Trip and USAW ASPC this weekend


Randy is leading the USA Weightlifting Advanced Sports Performance Course this weekend. If you already have your USAW Sports Performance Certification, this is the next step. This is Randy's last course of the year, so if you're on the fence, sign up through USAW!

Since the gym will be closed all weekend for the course, Todd and Lauren have graciously offered to host a snow shoeing field trip on Saturday.

Here are the details from Lauren:

This Saturday we will hike from Eldora to Lost Lake on the Hessie trail, roughly 3-4 miles round-trip from 9,000ft to 9,800ft. Kid-friendly + dog-friendly! The meeting point will be at the Hessie Trailhead here at 10am (a 50-min drive from the gym). We can then go for some grub with anyone who's interested afterwards. 
REI has snowshoes for rent for $24 that you can pick up on Friday and return on Sunday.  
Other considerations for people coming: bring water + layer up

I've done this hike in the summer and it's beautiful, it should be great in the winter too.
