Save the date: Oct 28

Since we now have an official SFG on staff (Jeremy), we're able to do lots of cool stuff. Amy was at the StrongFirst Kettlebell Course this weekend and loved it. Now we're going to be a host location for the next Tactical Strength Challenge.  I love the TSC, I was introduced to my first one probably about ten years ago and have done a bunch of them. It's a great way to test your all-around fitness. The events are Deadlift, max rep Pull-up, and 5 minute KB Snatch test. It's designed that you'll love at least one of them (Deadlift for me), be pretty good at another (Snatch), and hate the third (Pull-ups). If you can be good at all 3, you're pretty fit.

I don't know if Strong First has an official start time or if it will be during our normal 10:30 time slot, we'll get that figured out. I hope you'll plan on doing it, we're going to add a special cause to this one and I want everyone from the gym to get involved - more on that later.

note: if you're just doing it in-house, you don't need to register with SF, that's only if you want your score to count and have an official SFG judge.
