I’m going to get right to the point of this e-mail.
Bragging about how awesome you guys are!
I will definitely miss or forget to mention 30 or 40 people but that doesn’t mean I (or the rest of the team) haven’t noticed your constant progress.
Here we go:
First off, dizzard (aka Elizabeth Hanson) has not only been crushing her workouts but has been keeping Top Line extremely clean this summer which is no easy task with all the sweat that pours out on a daily basis.
Our newest coach Mira is absolutely dominating as a coach and has quickly built a team of “Top Line Babes” whose bodies are changing non stop.
Kiel hit 3 new PR’s and started a completely new program.
Alyssa overcame major fears of joining the gym and training hard and has been simply wonderful to work with.
Danielle T. and Nicole L. have shocked me on a daily basis with their consistency and work ethic despite their focusing issues whilst training together.
Lydia has gone crazy and is now doing 5K’s prior to conditioning sessions like it was nothing.
Curran is moving 500-600 pounds on a barbell as if they were trash can lids.
Santino assumed a new role at work which is much more physical and has made his training reflect it as well.
Mrs. Santino (aka Ash) has come off her pregnancy like a true champ and has been knocking down insane workouts (probably regrettably at times :) )
Speaking of mom’s. Tiffany has finally made her return and hasn’t missed a beat, staying consistent and pushing through the initial soreness like super mom.
Kimmy and Stevo (my training partner) are making a run for fittest couple ever trying to knock off Frank McGrath and Marissa Bish for the belts!!!
The future Tag Team Champions of the world Gabe and Uri (aka the lycans) are dialing in their conditioning 100% and taking all of Splinter’s knowledge to heart.
Earl the pearl is grinding hard and not making excuses. He’s even made some two-a-days.
Danielle is on the same page doing 2x/day sessions in prep for college basketball season.
My Lovely lady Michelle is still styling by day and lifting heavy weight by night!
The Docter (Alex) is taking all of the jokes I make about him in stride and continues to improve his already-jacked physique despite the hamburger meat on his chest.
Following closely on the Doc’s heals is his protege Ryan Knight who has transformed himself from scrawny to brawny over the past few months and has been throwing up big numbers.
Allie and LC are making their mark on the Top Shop every session by going above and beyond and pushing themselves to the absolute limit.
Sara R. has lost 9 pounds in less than 3 weeks sticking to her meal plan, training program, and a.m. cardio schedule.
The entire Family of Shawn and Jolene has been training together since the 21 day challenge and beyond showing us the new standard for family values in 2015.
Morris and JoJo are still the two most gangster North Shore Nancy’s on the planet being able to recite Big Sean songs!
The Den Mother is posting bigger numbers on the bench, squat, and deadlift than most college athletes while also dropping body fat like a lunatic.
Zander and Jennifer are destroying workouts every morning and putting new meaning to the word teamwork.
T.K. (Taylor King) has gotten back after it after some time off and is showing true heart.
Rabbi has been trimming down week after week while avoiding his usual SummerFest slump. He is no longer BM and has almost become a “real.” If you don’t know, you’re not ready.
Deborah has been training like a spartan for the past 2 months and makes me question my own intensity during workouts.
My new sidekick McKayla is showing incredible promise as a coach and def has potential to become one of the best coaches around, far better than myself.
Cheyn is not only putting up numbers on all his lifts but he is showing us all how crazy your socks can be while still making gains!
Delaney came back and PR’d on bench while tearing up the Top Shop.
Sally continues to make me think she is lying about her age with every workout she dominates.
Giselle & Sofia have made this mark: alleviated stress, dropped weight, and felt better than ever and it’s only been 2 weeks.
Taahiraa hasn’t even “officially” started and has crushed 4 workouts and stayed consistent after being away from Top Line for years.
Amber slimmin Tribben and her husband aka “The Tree” are constantly making me laugh and doing everything that’s asked of them.
Stizz is finally settling back in after a bunch of schedule conflicts and always makes my life better when it comes to coaching.
How about the MMA guys/girls: Omar is 100% dialed into fight camp mode, G-Man is back, Kali is on point (minus a pop-tart or 2), and even The UFC flyweight himself Dustin Ortiz is back in action.
Gunner is slinging Badger fences left and right during the day and 45# plates at night!
Arturo and Memo are two of the hardest working dudes I know.
Brunner is still making gains despite not training with the 7 o’clock crew.
Sam has made a complete lifestyle transformation and it sometimes feels like I’m training the Riddler with her.
Another full family taking over TL is Rob, Evangeline, Grace, & Jackson. A true blessing to work with as a coach and a friend.
Magic Mike retired the worlds thickest shoes but still trains harder than most while making everyone die laughing day in and day out.
Cal who can’t even drive yet is getting a serious set of pipes on him and staying consistent with his summer training program!
Reaper & Maddie…..Let’s just say they are making the most of their summer vacation & the Top Shop!
Some of the newest members like Howard, DeAnna, and Carmen are making us truly love what we do here at Top Line.
Did I forget you…Nah...I’m just hyped up on these iced coffees and can’t think straight anymore and need to eat a meal.
I just wanted to brag and recognize some of the awesome and amazing people (old, new, and in-between).
I’m humbled to be your coach and be a part of the gym that you’ve all help create. It’s truly an honor!
See you all in there tonight. Let’s crush this week!
