We hope that you’ll be able to join us this weekend. If you are planning on coming down to catch the action, the team competition will be held in the morning, with individuals competing in the afternoon. Our team will be in the arena for two workouts per day at approximately 9am and 10:30am, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
A couple of big shout-outs for some people who have been extremely supportive along the way: Anna Kemps has been incredibly helpful coordinating everyone who is making the trip down to San Jose. She’s been researching where to stay, event logistics, and has tirelessly planned the most fun way to tackle the weekend. Pat Pisenti (A.R.T. therapist/chiropractor) has been extremely generous with his treatments, keeping our athletes healthy and moving well. And last, but not least, Shannon and the girls at the lululemon showroom in Santa Rosa for keeping the team styling!
Please note that the gym schedule has changed. There will be no class at noon on Friday the 30th, and classes on Saturday and Sunday have been cancelled as well. We hope to see you down there; thanks for the support!
