Partner Competition Reminder!
Coming up next week we have a chance to team up with one of your class buddies to take on some fun workouts! You don't have to "know" your partner that well, and you don't even have to be in the same class... all you need to do is show up on Monday OR Tuesday and Friday OR Saturday and do the class workouts! Pretty easy if you ask me!
Here are some more details:
Entry is by donation (donate directly to a charity of your choice, or select one of these options: 5 dollar donation 10 dollar donation 15 dollar donation OR bring a non perishable food item to the gym to donate to Mustard Seed).
Grab a partner who will do the same scaling as you (Rx, Comp, or Scaled). Exchange an email address or phone number so you can correspond and log your scores together.
There will be google sheet links to keep track of scores. They'll be posted in the Sunday night blog, so you can enter your scores whenever both you and your partner have done the workouts. Only one of you needs to enter your teams score, so you'll have to add weights, reps, and or times together so you get one "team" score.
Come in, try hard, and have fun! That's what this is all about, pushing a bit more and cheering on your workout buddy.
Any questions? Ask a coach! And don't be surprised if we try to pair you up on the day :)
