What’s the Challenge? What’s at stake?

If ANY member in the class should beat the staff member, the ENTIRE class will receive 10% off their next month’s membership and the winning member will receive 20% off. Class size will be limited to 12 with slots reserved for those that RSVP via our online membership manager. In the event that someone should beat the staff member, only 12 discounted memberships will be granted with guaranteed discounts to those who RSVP.

Ascending Squat Workout (to do the workout as prescribed….you must weigh in on our scale without shoes and then place your weight on the bar)...then on the minute, do as many sets as possible in the back squat….do 1 rep first minute, 2 reps second minute and so on until you cannot meet the required reps in the minute. Score = rounds + reps. ALL squats in the set must be below parallel to count towards the rep count. You have the option of opting out of the weigh-in and using less weight but your performance will be asterisked.
*The record for the Ascending Squat workout is 14 rounds + 3 reps (108 total reps) for men and 13 rounds + 6 reps (97 total reps) for women.
