Dream Bigger

Don't ever tell yourself you can't do something just because of certain stages in your life. We are stronger than we were yesterday because of the gains we've made in the past, today and in the future.

Doubters are going to doubt you, but it's up to you not to listen. -Julie Meyer, Synergy Kettlebell Coach

1-Hour Long Cycle Charity 2017

 

Every year we hold a community Long Cycle event to raise money for a local charity.

This year we are raising money for the Ben Smiles Foundation. This is near and dear to our heart because one of our own Synergy Kettlebell members lost her special needs son last year. Ben Smiles was established by Rob & Elizabeth Gerlach in hopes of creating happiness and smiles for children with special needs, making important toys and tools accessible so they can play and communicate easier.

WHAT

QUESTION:What is 1-Hour Long Cycle? ANSWER: Long Cycle is performing a Clean & a Jerk with a Kettlebell. You can use any weight you want and we do this together as 1 community for 1 hour. If you don't have any experience, don't worry! We will go over everything with you so you are safe and enjoy a fun event for a great cause!!

There are many ways you can participate: solo, join one of our relay teams, support the lifters - whether it's to cheer, count reps, or distribute chalk to the participants! We definitely need you!!

What Is Synergy X-Treme?

image Being a Synergy X-Tremist is a mindset and a right of passage.  It's not how much weight you lift, even though pink bells and lighter are not allowed, but it's more about your attitude and being a leader among our community.

If you don't lift the most weight, so what.

If you don't finish in the fastest time, so what.

If you don't run the quickest, not the end of the world.

What matters is how we conduct ourselves in the class, and out.  What matters is overall effort. What matters is that we give it everything that we've got and that it means what we gave is our absolute best to give.

We don't complain and we do not ridicule others for falling short, but we band with one another as a team to bring each other up together. Together we are stronger and it is together we unite to be leaders of mental and physical toughness.

We accept the bumps and bruises along the way we know that's what makes us grow. At the day there are but 2 things which matter, our attitude and our effort.
