***Reminder*** this Saturday will be our second annual In Gym Winter Throwdown, sign up will be closed this Wednesday. We are not charging anything for this competition, but have come across a opportunity to help out some family friends that are going through some hard times. I know that any donation will help. To donate (click here)

Here is a little write-up.

On Sunday, November 2nd, little Warrior Princess, Kiara, was taken to the hospital where it was discovered that a tumor had formed on her cerebellum.  Kiara was immediately signed up for surgery and one of the biggest battles of her life, brain cancer. 

This battle will be long and it will be costly. Her parents, Keren and Jeremiah, have devoted their lives to helping others. They are self-employed helping people reach their goals and become fulfilled physically and spiritually. They have touched numerous lives with their sound advice and absolute devotion to God.  They are struggling now to find ways to cover medical costs and care for their three children. Now we have the opportunity to bless them and their dear daughter as she fights this terrible disease.” For more information (click here).

Don’t forget our 12 week Transformation Challenge starts next Monday. (click here) for more information.
