Thank you to those of you who are trying us out this week for coming today! We are so happy to those of you who are already members for telling your friends and family about us!
Last week I took a break from social media while spending a few days with family in St. Augustine. These days it's so easy to be glued to your devices and constantly feeling the need to check what everyone else is doing on social media. It probably isn't news to anyone that this can be detrimental to your mental and physical health.

Please watch the video above for points of performance in the front squat.
If you have issues performing the front squat - whether you can't keep your elbows up, it causes pain in your wrists, you can't get below parallel, etc., please read this article!
"Poor flexibility in the front rack is one of the most frequent complaints in the gym, and without good positioning an athlete’s ability to properly perform the front squat, clean, overhead press and jerk can be significantly affected.
The front-rack position is a combination of several motions: shoulder flexion and external rotation, elbow flexion and pronation, wrist extension, and thoracic-spine extension. As with any movement or positioning fault, a better understanding of the various components will allow the athlete or coach to more effectively correct underlying...more
