“Tomorrow morning is different. Unlike previous Tuesday mornings in Grand Rapids you will be faced with three choices:

  1. The Easy Road – You stay in bed. Don’t worry, we all understand. The fartsack is warm and soft, like you
  2. The Middle Road – You go to @MAD COW‘s Q at The Stairs. That’s fine, I guess you did SOMETHING
  3. The Hard Road – You join me at The Track.  There will be sweat.  There will be struggle.  There will be progress.

On second thought, you should all probably just go to @MAD COW‘s Q, don’t come to The Track.  If you do choose to come to the track, HARD COMMIT below.  Coupons required.  Want more? Bring a ruck, weighted vest, or something heavier than a coupon.”

5 Core Principles: Free of charge | Open to all men | Held outdoors, rain or shine, hot or cold | Led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion with no training or certification necessary | End w/ a Circle of Trust

It is each person’s responsibility to be safe and modify exercises if you need to. The most important thing is that you don’t get hurt, and that you finish. Remember, the workout should be you vs you.
