Our first meeting is the program orientation. It is a chance to meet your coaches, ask questions, and review the training schedule and program. This is an informational meeting only.
Note: Although there will be no workout following the orientation meeting, we strongly encourage all registrants to attend.
Our first workout is January 5, 2014, so as not to compete with the distraction of the December and New Year’s holiday weekends. But keep your training going as best you can during the holidays as we will dive right in on our first workout.
