Happy Birthday Luke Winter

On Monday, May 14th, Luke Winter was officially “over the hill”.  On Tuesday we were lucky enough to “celebrate” his day with him with a fun finisher in the 9am Low Intensity class.  A little bird told me that Luke has been working grip strength, so that is what we gifted him here at Norcal.  After a good workout, we rounded up the troupes in a big circle around Luke.  They all assumed the squat position and passed a 14lb med ball around the circle 4x’s (2 each direction) while Luke was in the middle of the circle “pinching” a 45lb plate in each hand until the 4 rounds had been completed.  For those of you that have not tried to pinch the 45lbs plates (or even the 25’s or 10’s) I encourage you to try.  You’ll see how EXTREMELY hard this is to do!  Good to see you’re getting stronger with age Luke…after all, I hear that 40 is the new 30.

Happy Birthday and thanks for being such an amazing addition to our gym.

  1. Happy B-Day Luke…

  2. Luke, Colleen and Augie are awesome additions to the gym. WOW! I love this family. On so many occasions I have felt comfort in moaning along with Colleen as we run but still obviously do our best at that moment! Or Luke – my man – such an inspiring support – more than once he has gently encouraged me to push myself that much more reminding me that’s what I came for, or helping me with my form or… I so appreciate the care and support we all give one another at Norcal. Augie is just an inspiration with his tussled hair and big sweet smile!

  3. Happy Bday great buddy. You are making 40 look good.

  4. Happy Happy Birthday my friend! I can’t believe you are so young :-) Seriously it is crazy to think we started working out together over 5 years ago! Wow, time has gone by so fast. Great job in the gym and thank you for the continued support and positive feedback you bring to Norcal! We love having you!
