Training at Powerplay

We are now training at Powerplay. $50/month and you can workout as much as you'd like but timeslots are a bit limited. They are equipped with a 40 yrd track, rings, medballs, plyo boxes, dumbells, great O-lifting barbells, quality bumper plates, squat racks, bikes, treadmills, pullup bars etc. and I will be bringing a rower, some abmats and a few dynamax balls to add to the mix. I will be training around 12 or 1pm if you can't make it I will also be posting the workouts on the blog. Post weights and times to comments.
