As Washington state approaches June 30th, the deadline to full reopen, we’ll be doing our best to continue providing our athletes the best experience possible.

When all athletes in a class are fully-vaccinated, meaning 100% of all those in the gym are at least two weeks out from their second Pfizer/Modera or single J&J, then that class can go MASK-OPTIONAL. If a class can be mask-optional, the coach will announce it during or after your warm-up. If there’s no announcement, then we are not at 100%. We still require masks upon entry to the gym.

When we believe we can increase class capacity due to high attendance, then we may move to a Single-Occupant Lane / Open-Lane format:
– SINGLE-OCCUPANT: one athlete per lane (A through E or 1 through 6).
– OPEN-LANE: no specific lanes (just as we operated before the pandemic), with athletes being mindful of physical distance.

There may be instances where both formats (Single-Occupant and Open-Lane Mask-Optional classes) can happen, so be mindful of the class format when you RSVP via PushPress and before attending.

CompEx will start this Saturday as a dual Single-Occupant/Open Lane and will continue this format moving forward, including Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

GHOST puts out some of my favorite supplements on the market for two reasons:

1.) full-disclosure labels: this requires some knowledge and research to know what you’re putting in your body- and they’re not hiding anything.

2.) Awesome flavors- they licensed things out like Warheads candies, Sonics Drive-In, Welches Grape, Swedish Fish, Bubblicious, Chips Ahoy!, Sour Patch Kids, and their most popular protein flavor came from the Milk Bar cereal milk taste! They also offer Vegan options too.

If you’re interested in trying here’s a code for 20% on your first purchase. I like their protein and Size supplements. The BCAAs are great too if that’s important to you.
