    Well I guess it's time for the gym to have it's own thread considering it's got it's own bank account, EID number, etc.

    The success of the Plano gym will be very much a reflection of the success we have had with the Dallas gym and I am glad that I will have a handful of seed members to start the gym out. The culture we have developed at the Dallas gym is absolutely out of this world and I know that the Plano gym will develop it's own tribe and bring more folks into the Starting Strength fold.

    Ok, enough handwaving and softness. Brass tacks:

    Intro sessions have begun. Full class schedule begins on Monday the 26th. It is going to be down to the wire but we will get it done. Rubber matts are getting loaded on a truck and driven straight here from Galveston (because that's where they cut the mats obviously, didn't you know?) on Friday. Most of my 45lb plates have been delivered (thanks team for unloading and Grant for making miracles happen I won't ask what you had to do...) and the rest of the change plates will arrive today or tomorrow.

    The new racks are SICK! Deeper and longer.... She likes it.

    We also stepped the speaker game up and went with a SONOS five. That thing has some kick! I know Rip doesn't listen to music when he is doing a heavy set but not many people are Rip...

    Here are some shots from our very first intro session.

    Ok, so full schedule started this past Monday and we had a pretty good turnout. All the mats have now been installed and there have been several updates to the design and execution of the gym. I already mentioned the deeper and taller racks. But the rubber mats are also very different. Much more firm and solid. Really feels like squatting on concrete vs rubber mats. Really pleased with the aesthetics and functionality of the gym.

    Things are off to a really great start at the Plano location. There are still some loose ends that we are attending to with regard to buildout but they are more of the cosmetic type than the actual use of racks to get people stronger. Speaking of getting people stronger the morning session on MWF is starting to fill up. Only two spots left at this point. Same for the Tue Thurs noon session.

    Was very happy to see some familiar faces last week. Steve was a Dallas member and now that we are closer to him in Plano (he lives in Frisco) I no longer have to shout at my computer while I am breaking down his online videos. Now I can grab him and move him around. You know, ACTUAL coaching! Steve brought his two sons. Dominic on the left is just 21yrs old, lives at home, and daddy buy's the groceries. I hope daddy is ready to buy Dominic a new wardrobe. He is going to split that shirt and those shorts right down the seam by the time we are done with him.
