TJ's Gym Weekly News 01/24/2019

 

ALL HANDS ON DECK!

This weekend is our 9th-annual NorCal Masters Competition, which showcases some of the world’s fittest athletes ages 35+. It’s a true labor of love and involves the help of so many TJ’s Gym volunteers (THANK YOU!). This year, our equipment team will be headed by the incomparable Brian Urey and Chris Ford. Here they are setting up at the Civic Center, inspiring lots of confidence. In all seriousness, there will be boatloads of inspiration to go around, so stop by this weekend to watch, Sat. 8-5 and Sunday 8-4. And, if you can help out, please email jessica@tjsgym.com.

Program Foundations:    •Injury prevention/Consistency  Strength training builds stronger, more resilient connective tissues (muscle, bone, tendon, ligament), allowing athletes to train harder and with more frequency, all while avoiding injury.  •Efficiency/Muscular Power Power is a necessity for success in distance running. Our Running Strong program aims to increase runners' ability to create and access power.  •Longevity/Health While running has significant cardiovascular benefits, it often falls short when it comes to balance and sustainability. We will address issues and ailments common to runners, with the goal of enabling athletes to enjoy running for years to come.    Coach Nick Laplant is a Marin County native who grew up running the trails of Mt. Tam. He ran competitively for Tam High and earned a scholarship to Humboldt State, where he competed in Cross Country and Track and Field. Nick has competed in a number of demanding local races, including the Dipsea, and the Mt. Tam Hill Climb, and he is thrilled to be helping others reach their running potential in the beautiful running backdrop of Marin.
