PROXIMAL STrength news and notes for the week of 7.18.21

Flamingo Story!

As you know, we often reference the flamingo pose at the end of our workouts. This started a few years ago when some of our girls decided to add pizzaz to our group pics. Kudos to Sarah Sharp.

Often the girls would participate and often the boys would not.

We love the flamingo pose and when new people show up to class, they often are confused at first by everyone jumping into a flamingo.

The flamingo is one of the ways our community uses to represent our friendships and bonds. It also represents that everything will be alright.

Last Thursday class! Flamingo in full effect.

Congratulations to Brittany and Tristan Rowe!

Brittany and Tristan have been a big part of our community and we want to congratulate them on there pending news they are going to be a Mommy and Daddy! Congrats!

Congrats!
