What an incredible weekend it was to close out what has been an amazing year at HeavyWeights Training Center.
Friday night we kicked things into high gear with our “Last Class BEST CLASS”.
I have coached a lot of these classes but this one was something special. The energy of the gym was incredible.
With over 100 people the gym was packed full of high energy of people sweating & smiling and having a great time.
A few of the highlights of thsi big workout were Maria Aucoin stepping up to coach the class and lead the workout. At 16 Maria is one of our PowerLifting competitors and she rose to the occasion when I asked somoene to get uncomfortable and step up.
Check out Maria coaching 100 people below.
After this cane another amazing highlight which was the Monster Trap Bar Deadlift Ladder.
This class was amazing and thank you to everyone who showed up and trained with us.
Saturday was the big day, Graduation Day!
With grad day we finish up our programs by taking pictures, weigh ins, measurements and more from our clients from our 42 day programs. This is the day we get to see the results, hear the stories from our members and we begin to “Celebrate Our Victories”.
We give out awards for reach program and this time we even added some awards for our out HeavyWeights team members who stepped up and did an amazing job over the last 42 days.
Grad Day was a huge success and it was great to see so many smiling faces after 42 days of hard work and dedication.
After Graduation Day I made it a point to lead from the front and get my own workout in. For the last 42 days I have really been focusing on training hard and getting my workouts in.
I got a squat workout in and I reached my goal. Thanks to my training partner Darren Hann.
This is me squatting 3 lbs higher than the Canadian M1 83 KG Record. It is a goal of mine next year in April at the 2015 Nationals being held in St. John’s to break the Canadian Squat Record. I have a lot of hard training ahead of me but I know with hard work and the right coaching and focus I can do it.
I am not going to lie, this felt damn heavy :).
After grad day comes our Grad Party. This was one of our best if not the BEST party of the year. We had a private party at the Martini Bar where we had an amazing turn out. We are known for our parities and this was a blast!
