I still remember it…

There was a really young kid named Justin.  A girl named Erin.  This quiet guy named Bern.  Another swimmer named Lauren.  We were all in what used to be a post office at 31 St. James Ave. discussing what grand plans lay before us.  The unpainted and unopened gym was still missing the equipment and the members (which are key ingredients).  This guy by the name of Josh Plosker was talking to us about what kind of a gym he wanted to open.  It was supposed to be one of the best gyms in the world!!!

That was three years ago.  Since then we have picked up a few more coaches, including another quiet girl named Jessa, a clean cut guy named Angelo, and a former master baker named Monica.  With literally tons of equipment and hundreds of members now making up the RCBB community, I cannot believe how quickly time has passed.  Thank you Michael.  Thank you Josh.  And a fantastically special thanks to you all!!!

We are definitely one of the better gyms out there,

Happy early birthday to us…

I know it only counts on the actual day (unless you are awesome = me), but I still get excited!  It has been three years!!!  That’s three years of squatting, cleaning, pressing, huffing, and puffing!  Three years of improving the quality of life of so many people!  Three years of waking up and dragging yourself out of bed / work (assuming you were dosing off at work) and becoming a better you!  Three years of testing and celebrating our capacity!  Three years of finding out the pleasures of the following statement:

“No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.” – Socrates

Cheers to the next three and then more,
