Weekend Update – A Little Early

**UPDATE: Madeline is not feeling well and spin is cancelled this evening.  Apologies for the short notice.  Feel better, Madeline!!**

A little early update to give everyone time to prepare for this weekend!

*Where did the month of October go?  Our Carry The Load Month is coming to end.  Many of you did the Obstacle Course for time that was the Test In for this month.  If you would like to do the Test Out to see if you can improve your time, the Obstacle Course will be a part of all of our Friday 10/30 classes.  All Test In times are posted on the large white board in the gym so you can see what time you need to improve.   Thanks to all who have posted names and pictures of those we Carried all month long!

*We have 18 participants so far signed up for November’s Weight Loss Challenge (loads of ladies in the game to make it a fun one…..guys, where you at?).  Last call for sign up will be 10/30.  As a means of support, sharing ideas and recipes, and tips, we will be setting up a Private Facebook group for all those who are participating (and on FB).  Be on the look out for that.  Because of this private group, we will NOT be having the informal meeting as previously mentioned on Sunday November 1st.  Instead, look for ideas, tips, and links to helpful websites within this private Facebook group.

*It’s ON.  What’s on, you ask?!  A Rockin’ 80’s Themed workout!  Our Saturday AM classes will have a Halloween flair.  Dress up in your best 80’s themed workout clothes, and get ready to Jazzercise!  (Not really…..that’s totally a JOKE!).  But wearing your leotards, leg warmers and mesh tank tops is no joke!

*Remember the Pull Up Challenge we did a while back?  Well, November’s physical challenge is here with a twist!  Pull Up Negatives and Pull Up Positives.  Start on Nov. 1 with a 1 second negative, followed by a 1 second positive.  Each day, add an additional second for your negative and your positive.  End the month with a 30 second negative and a 30 second positive.  Get the idea?  You miss a day, you make up that day the next time you are in the gym.  AND, if it is appropriate for you just to work on negatives alone and build up your slow descent on negatives only, by all means, hop in the challenge that way!
