FGB Participant Info and the UB Open

Sunday, September 16 2012 Posted by Jenny Werba


It's a big week for United Barbell! Why? Well, for one, Saturday is our Fight Gone Bad Fundraiser. And if that isn't enough fun for you to get your hands on, Sunday, Team United Barbell is hosting their first ever weightlifting meet! Here are the details:

Fight Gone Bad

This Saturday is a big day. Why? Well two reasons... maybe even three. First off, we are doing the workout Fight Gone Bad. And for those of you who know the WOD, you know it's been named properly. Second of all, this will be a coaching debut for Wong, Jon S., and Alex! So give 'em a high five when you walk in the door, and give them your respect during the day! Lastly, but definitely not least, FGB is a fundraiser for a local charity - Rubicon Programs. We are requesting all participants raise $50 to participate, but our gym goal is $3,000 (We are 1/2 way there!) The biggest fundraiser will receive a prize. If you plan to participate, please respond in the comments and start your fundraising either in person, or here. For more info on the day, check our previous post.


United Barbell Open

Sunday, bright and early, we will be hosting a weightlifting meet at CFO. It's the team's first meet, and we are excited! Just like all the local Pacific Weightlifting Association's Events, it will be a great display of strength. If you are interested in going, here is the info on the day. Please note, UB's door's will still be open, so if big weight's aren't your thing, you can still head to UB for regular classes.

Ugh. Filthy Fifty on the same week as FGB? Jenny - you are one badass trainer! Thank goodness James made/coerced me into doing FGB with his client over a week ago. Done.

If you thought the atmosphere at the Ultimate Liftoff was fun, FGB is even BETTER! Especially if we get another pic of Charles looking like a corpse outside UB! Come have some fun, y'all!
