The Thang


Home Plate — Dips x 20 dips
First Base – Big Boy Sit-ups X 20
Second Base – Half Burpees X 20
Third Base – Merkins X 20
20 reps at each station and then rotate.  Once the PAX had made it at least two-three rounds, we reconvened at the stage.

The first team to round the bases and make it back to their spot yells grand slam and the others teams then have to do 10 burpees.

MARY-GO-ROUND to finish it out.


It can be easy to get stagnant or stuck in your failure. It’s important for us to reframe what failure’s purpose is in our lives and how we use it to motivate us toward momentum. If we see all failure as an opportunity, it will not be a step back, but forward. When failure happens, expect it, and make sure that you are failing forward and using it to push you to be better.


Glad to meet our new FNG, Nelson. The weather doesn’t feel so cold if you keep moving.


Convergence / Anniversary on November 17th in Cleveland. Invite everyone and mark it on your calendar.
