To those who have applied, you will be hearing from me at some point between now and Sunday - so please stand by! If you have not heard from me by Sunday afternoon, please email me: email@example.com.
I'm looking forward to spending the next couple of days reviewing all the applications that have been sent in. While I have not read them in their entirety, from a quick overview, I know we have some FANTASTIC potential New Recruits and... we have some veteran BTWG'ers looking for a tune up and another round of BTWG. To me, this speaks volumes about the program, the fact that so many have applied and the fact that so many BTWG grads know the value of the program and believe in it so much that they once again want to be a part of the action.
Now, off to do some reading...

I envision the return of BTWG in the Fall of this year, and I would also envision the facilities at PR Fitness as our home base - where we will do the fitness testing, hold our group meetings, perform group workouts and more. If you haven't been out to visit us yet, you really should do yourself a favor and make the trek out to Brownsburg. Many of our BTWG Grads are joining us each week, getting fit, and having a great time. Your first workout is free!
In the meantime, I would encourage you to continue to visit the PR Fitness web site where I post several workouts each week that you can do on you own, or join us for a class or private coaching. Also, I just launched the PR Fitness blog, which is where I will continue to post items of interest, announcements and more.
I trust that you will stay in touch and connected to our wonderful group of friends and community that we have built over the past 2 years.

I just talked with Mysh, from Cityoga, and she said they will announce any class closings on their voicemail. So, before you head down for class tomorrow, be sure to call and listen for any class cancellations.
Hope we are able to practice together, yet, if the snow comes as they are predicting, let's all stay home and practice. Cool?

Things will pick up on this blog in the near future, I have needed to shift the majority of my time and energy into getting the new business up and running as well as coaching our group for the Indy Mini.

What's included in the clinic:
- "Before" video analysis of each participant
- Instruction on optimal running mechanics. Moving away from the conventional heel-strike method of running and the use of highly cushioned running trainers, you will be taught how to become a mid-fore foot striker. Additionally, you will be instructed on how to use your body and gravity for better running economy and efficiency. Athlete's will also be taught how to use their natural ability to absorb impact and to better transfer their energy into forward motion. Research supports that these methods, principles and techniques are in line with the way humans were designed to run and allows us to run with a minimal shoe, racing flat, or even barefoot! Essentially, you will reconnect with your innate ability to run more efficiently, more comfortable, faster, and you will be less prone to injury
- Skills and Drills to apply the form and techniques discussed
- Class will conclude with follow up video analysis to review improvements made as well as drills to continue working on optimal form
This training is ideal for anyone interested in improving their ability to run; from recreational runner or competitive athlete, this workshop will help. Regardless of the distance you typically run, this workshop is for you; from runs assigned in your CrossFit or BTWG workouts, 5K, 1/2 marathon, marathon, or ultra, this workshop will be of great value. I also strongly recommend this workshop to anyone who is joining us for the Dances with Dirt Team Relay.
If you have questions or if you want to register, please email me at email@example.com.
For directions to PR Fitness, please visit our web site: www.PRFitness.net and click "directions". Let me know if you need additional guidance to our location.

I received the following email from our friend, Ginger and am happy to post it on the blog, as she requested. If you have been touched by the recent devastation in Haiti and would like to help in some way, here is an opportunity for you.
Sorry for the inconsistent font size; I couldn't get it to adjust...
I am attaching an e-mail from a college buddy of mine that works for an agency called Food for the Poor that has a huge presence in Haiti. If you feel okay about it, would you please post a blurb on your blog about how people can contribute if they feel the calling to help out?
Rick and I have supported Food for the Poor for years and I can vouch for it.
This has been quite a day dealing with the news of the devastation of the earthquake in the beloved country Haiti. I have been touched by the numerous phone calls and emails that I have received. Thank you very much. I am in awe of the generosity from so many caring people and wanting to do something to help. I thank all of you for your prayers.
FFP (Food for the Poor) needs massive amount of collections. We have been asked to direct all people to our website. We need to raise about 5 Million dollars to buy Zinc and Lumber to rebuild homes. We are sending over 250 Containers of emergency supplies.
Our FFP Office was damaged, front part of building all walls collapsed, the Chapel and wall to warehouse collapsed, no one was hurt. The Administrative offices have a lot of damage.
People are in the streets and they don't want to go back into any
Buildings. Hospital cannot accept anymore people it is at its capacity.
All phone lines are down, we can not get in contact except through internet. No Electricity, No Water.
I will be sending out a massive email tomorrow and it will have the link to donate funds. Please feel free to pass this on.
Thank you for your concern, prayers and generosity.

With the new space comes a new name - "PR Fitness". Why "PR"? My good friend and business partner is Jeff Porter. So, P = Porter and R = Roche. "PR" is also a term that is prevalent in CrossFit and racing as it stands for "Personal Record", so it seemed really fitting. We are in the process of becoming a CrossFit affiliate and will most likely use the name "CrossFit: PR" once we are approved.
In addition to the CrossFit-based classes, we will also offer personal training. We have two personal trainers coming on board who are very much in tune with the same style of training and approach that I take to wellness. I will also be doing 1 on 1 sessions on a limited basis. Eventually we will offer other classes, such as bootcamp and whatever seems to be a good fit for us. This will also be my home base where I will offer workshops, clinics, and the upcoming Indy Mini/CrossFit training.
It's been an exciting and eventful day, including a champaign toast with our families at the new place. So, for now, I'm too tired to share much more and tomorrow is an early day as I move our equipment into the new place - in time for tomorrow's classes!
Stay tuned for details, new class times, and the launch of our new website.
Until then, here are a couple pictures for ya...

Thanks, Pam, for the link.

Getting it done, No Excuses! style. Pam, earlier today, out at Eagle Creek, bundled up and enjoying the fresh, crisp air, sunshine, hills, and beautiful scenery. How 'bout you? Are you using the cold and snow as an excuse to stay inside or to use the elliptical at the gym? Like I said, going to the gym to do your cardio is better than sitting on the couch and being sedentary, yet getting outside on a cold day to train forges so much more than "cardio fitness": discipline, toughness, mental and physical fortitude, gratitude, not to mention the physical aspects such as absorption of vitamin D and the functional fitness qualities of walking a trail that undulates, rolls, and pitches.
Good job, Pam!
