Test your Strength and Fitness this October

Its that time of the year to truly test your strength and fitness! The Tactical Strength Challenge is a competition consisting of three events: a three-attempt powerlifting deadlift, kettlebell snatches for max reps in a 5:00 time period and pullups for max reps. These three events test a unique trade-off between these abilities, and while larger participants may have an advantage in the deadlift, lighter participants have an advantage in pullups, and the kettlebell snatch tests all participants equally.

Where and who can Compete?

Our gym, Critical Mass Training Systems is an pre-approved testing facility for the event, which will be held on October 27th! Critical Mass staff along with members will be competing for the chance to make the leader board. This is a world event and results will be posted online. There will be three divisions being tested. If you want to see where how you would compete check out below.

Locker Room Nudity

I think we have all been there. You walk in the locker room and there is a guy who seems to just be standing there waiting for a poor victim to talk to as his balls are just SWINGING from side to side!

Yup, it’s you!

You are the victim who has to keep eye contact while you talk about recent politics or what your workout consisted of. This just doesn’t happen to the guys, this also happens in the women’s locker room. I have heard of stories of women just flaunting their bodies around and doing their make-up completely nude. I even heard of a topless locker room fight between a trainer and member!

Do we really need to deal with this shit? So, if you are reading this and you are the person who hangs out in the locker rooms in full nude, PLEASE STOP! Get dressed and move on with your day. No body wants to have their gym experience be tainted by having to unsee the seen!

Just needed to put that out there.
