We have classes today at 6am, 9am and noon only. Will it be a Festivus Miracle if you make it to one of them?
What's your Festivus miracle? Kramer declares two miracles in the Festivus episode of Seinfeld. Of course neither are true miracles and both are funny! "Did 50 burpees without dropping the F bomb even once!" is more along the lines of a Festivus miracle we can understand. Or "Matt arrived to the noon class 5 mins before noon! It's a Festivus miracle!" Stuff like that we can all relate to. So what's your Festivus miracle? Let us know in the comments any Festivus miracles you observe!
Festivus is the inspiration for the Festivus Games and we are hosting the Festivus Games for a third year on April 18, 2020. The Festivus Games are a fitness celebration for the Rest Of Us.
BE A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY: A Festivus Games competition is built around good people looking to be challenged. With your gymmates, you will sweat, laugh, cheer and compete. No athlete, whether six months in or brand new, will need to scale any of the events. Festivus Games is about capacity more than a high degree of skill. Everyone can row, just how fast? Everyone can deadlift, just how much? 10,000+ athletes will compete worldwide, all on the same day, in this amazing one-day event. Click on the image above for more info!
Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the gym,
The equipment was dusty because no one came in.
The weights they laid there so cold and so bare,
With hopes a fanatic would come lift his fair share.
The members were home, with ice cream and spoon,
With no thoughts of squats anytime soon.
Their trainer at home was taking a nap,
Knowing that none of them were out running laps.
Then, outside there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
I looked out the window and what did I see?
Jolly Ol Saint Nick was staring at me.
I welcomed him in and made him a drink,
A single-malt scotch, Glenlivit I think.
He shouted and yelled that he needed to eat,
So we sat down at the table for a late night treat.
Oh sausage, Oh donuts, Oh chicken and waffles,
We went Middle Eastern and fried some falafel.
He yelled, “Let’s go, the boys and girls will soon be awake.”
“If you help me tonight, I’ll get the gym a new shake weight.”
On the sleigh, I hopped, with a plateful of snacks,
Tomorrow my nutrition will get back on track.
We started talking fitness, nutrition and such,
Santa showed me a picture of when he was buff.
“I wasn’t always chunky as you can see.”
“These dang milk and cookies have done this to me.”
“Oh coach, oh coach, what can I do?”
I replied, “squats and deadlifts, and do quite a few.
Elf tosses and pushups will get you just right,
Your arms and pecs will be nice and tight.
If you learn to eat well for most of the year,
A night of milk and cookies you need not fear.”
“Thanks coach, now let’s get back to work,
Tomorrow you can teach me the clean and jerk.”
Back to my house was the end of our flight.
But I heard him say as he drove out of sight,
“Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good-night.”
