MMA Charity Fight Night

A physical training regiment and MMA tournament to benefit underprivileged youth in Boston.
An initiative of Office to Octagon, in partnership with the BYMC Union Gym.
Local business professionals (range from CPA’s, to law enforcement, to financial analysts, and so on) with no prior fighting experience will train with world-ranked coaches in Mixed Martial Arts, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and Olympic lifting/CrossFit), while raising money for charity in the process.
They will be put through a 12-14 week training camp leading up to the fight night on June 22nd and the entire process is being filmed.
Office to Octagon will donate funds to Easy Nice, LLC, the MMA Scholarship Fund, and the BYMC Union Nonprofit Gym.
As P.E. budgets continue to decline in public schools, funding at the community level is necessary for independent athletic programs, to ensure that youth can develop physical, emotional and academic excellence, whatever their financial means.
Your participation will directly support charitable programming in the community. Office to Octagon is working with the Union Gym to improve access to physical education for underprivileged teens. By combining vigorous exercise, youth development and nutrition, you are supporting a broad cross-section of under-resourced students who represent diverse cultural, ethnic and economic backgrounds.

Looking good Claire…

If you looked at the workout and alarms aren’t going off, then good.  Come in today and absolutely crush this picnic of a workout.  If you got some chills down your back after calculating the number of reps possible in that tiny frame of time, then good.  Come in today and absolutely crush this ______ of a workout.  Since the opposite of picnic doesn’t exist, you guys can insert any word you would like into the blank.

Like pitch,

Well, that was a success…

The Paleo talk came and went and went well.  For all of you who were not around, I will be posting the link to the write up of what was addressed during the talk.  In other news, WordPress is about 55 percent full, so that gives us about  ten months before we have to be concerned.  In other, other news, there are forty five people signed up for the Opens.  The funny thing is that forty five is not over 200, which is were we ought to be.  The Opens are a great way to find a new fire for your workouts.  If you sign up, you will not regret it.

Burpee penalties if you regret it,
