August: Accountabil-A-buddy Month

  Great work to all on keeping the Sweaty Swag flowing this month! There were awesome accomplishments, some big, some small, but what I loved this month was seeing you all challenge each other. Charlie, Jack, Camilo, and Lones accumulated over thousands of pushups together while making their own ground rules. Nabil, DJ, Marko, and […]

Featured Athlete: Martha K.

Everyone has heard the saying “hard work pays off”, and Martha is a great example of not only hard work paying off, but consistency over a period of time paying off.  While she wasn’t able to do unassisted pullups for some time, these days you can find Martha linking together kipping pullups within a workout […]
