This past weekend we had the pleasure of having Jordan Pepe train at our gym! She just recently placed 15th at the CrossFit Southeast Regionals (which is getting more and more competitive each year), and after the lifts we saw the past couple of days we can see why she did so well! Jordan is currently trying to qualify for the 2013 Weightlifting Senior Nationals, and we have no doubt she’ll be able to do so. Hopefully she’ll train with us again soon!

This may be a day late, but on June 11th, we had the pleasure of having Nat Arem, the owner of hookgrip, at our gym. He’s no less than a great guy who takes great photographs of weightlifters! Be sure to check out his website at www.hookgrip.com to get some great posters, we have a few of his up at Coffee’s and people love them! (Including me)
