Friday, November 14

One last reminder! We will be moving the gym this Saturday following the 10:30 am CrossFit class. If you’d like to help just show up and we will show you where to go. Our new address will be 2430 Turner Ave, Suite A, Grand Rapids, MI. The new gym is about a half mile north on Turner from our current space, on the same side of the road. See you there!

I’d like to thank Pete for passing along this article from Beyond the Whiteboard to me and I think you all might find it interesting as well. It’s sort of a follow up on the article I posted a while ago about how long it takes to improve your fitness. This article focuses on working out more or less during a week and the benefits and costs of doing more workouts. There are a lot of factors to consider when deciding if you want to work out more, and the answer to what you should do depends on your goals. One thing is for sure, your fitness will improve if you work our more while being mindful of how you are feeling and getting enough recovery and rest. Read the article and see what you think, and then consider if your workout time is getting you to where you want to be.
