On the Cusp of Greatness by Coach Chad
Well things sure are getting exciting around here at Local. If you haven’t noticed, we’re in the middle of a couple or things and right on the cusp of a few others!
Golden Tickets were a huge hit in January. Plenty of friends and family came in to take advantage of that sweet two weeks of free classes. After it all settled out, Hannah F and Katie M took first and second place earning themselves some fantastic prizes along the way. Thanks to everyone who helped make it such a success!
The next event to kickoff was the Whole Life Challenge. We’re currently in the third week (almost halfway done!) and being led by the fearless Coach Emily. It’s always a great experience to really focus on cleaning up your diet, getting enough sleep, drinking enough water and exercising/mobilizing each day. People have already told me that the fog has started to lift and they’re experiencing lost pounds and increased mental clarity. How can you argue with that?!
And now we swing to the future happenings. This Saturday Local will be hosting it’s first Olympic meet. The 2018 Will You Be My Valentine Meet will run from 10AM – 230PM and feature some of Chapel Hill, Raleigh, Durham and Charlotte’s best lifters! They would all love to have you come support them and help them lift as much weight as possible. Locals Leo B, Amanda D, Rebecca G, Davis C, Samantha H, Shevonn H, Katie M, Sarah M, Laura M, Graeme R and Irena R will all be reppin’ Local Barbell Club!
As a reminder, we’ll only have ONE class on Saturday at 8AM. It will be completely outside so dress appropriately!
Next Saturday three Locals will also be participating in the 2018 Athletic Lab Weightlifting Winter Classic in Cary. This is a big meet (60 lifters!) and should be fun for everybody. Amanda D, Kelly E and myself would love to see you there!
Finally we begin to focus on everybody’s favorite event: Friday Night Lights! All the fun kicks off on 2/23. We’re currently sitting on 50 people competing. It’s going to be our biggest one yet! You can find all the details about registration here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1314338972005178/
There’s a ton going on and we love every minute of it. Thank you guys and girls for supporting the vision!
