You will love training with a crew. I would never be as strong without mine.

Thanks Steve!! That is exactly what I need. I need to be pushed. I remember many times you would tell me that you wished you could be by my side to help me correct a form issue. Well, I still don't have you by my side, but I will have the crew by my side. I remember when Big Al joined his hardcore gym , met new friends and lifters stronger than he, and look what happened.

My Mom and God have answered my prayers Steve.

Yes Babs, I have to join the gym to be able to train with them. That is the $504.00 per year fee. The $300.00 fee is to be a member of the crew. I am good with that. The JimGym is paid for, and I will still be using it.

I need this, in order to take my lifting to the next level to reach 1200 total. For example, I have been after a 500 deadlift for so long. These guys have the tools to help me get there. Brain and Mario, the co founders of the crew, are also personal certified trainers and crew mentors. I look at Big Al and see what happened to him when he took the step and joined a more hardcore gym and lifted with guys more knowledgeable and stronger. So, for me, the money is worth it. I wouldn't be joining that gym unless I got accepted onto the team.

To have that live, by my side support is priceless. I feel blessed and confident I will get to 1200 and beyond.

Thanks Tann!! I am so thrilled and cannot stop thinking about it.

I am now off to Texas for a couple of weeks. I will be meeting and lifting with HDJoe and KD5NFW (Rich) from the other forum.

I will be able to lift with the crew the last weekend of the month. I'll be smiling all the way as I cannot stop thinking about this.

The best part of it all is that I was not even intimidated by the training room. I know I will fit in and be a big part of the team. I am ready to take my lifting to 1200+.

The very best way to get stronger is to train with people stronger than you.
