Hey guys!

I don’t like to post just for the sake of posting, but rather share information that I feel is valuable.

On that note…

For about a year now I have really cleaned up my diet (it really wasn’t that bad to begin with), and have also made what I […]

Updates and rant from Uncle Mike…

Hey guys…

It’s been a while since my last post, but I don’t post unless I have cool stuff to share with you.

There have been some positive changes to the gym including new paint and reorganization of the gym.

As the weather gets nice (soon), we will be cleaning up the court yard and getting ready for […]

What is YOUR key to being successful?

Uncle Mike’s kettlebell snatch challenge (video)

Give this fun challenge a try.

Advanced Men should use a 24kg bell and advanced women a 16g.

Other wise, use what you can and have fun with this.

Remember to lock out each snatch over your head and do solid push ups.

If you’re not good on the jump rope, now’s a good time to practice.

See if […]
