Who’s who: Kristina R.

How were you introduced to NorCal Strength and Conditioning? My hubby Chris introduced to me to NorCal, he had been trying to get me to join for a year. He thought it would be fun to workout together and thought I’d really like NorCal because it’s so different from other gyms.

Who’s Who: Michele Laine

  How were you introduced to NorCal Strength and Conditioning?

Leadville or Bust

Soooo… back in February (pre-broken foot) I was presented with an opportunity to be on a team and participate in the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race.  My initial response was, “YES, YES, and YES!!!”  As a weekend warrior mountain bike enthusiast from Colorado (home state to the Leadville 100) this was like a dream come true.  From what I hear, it’s a near impossible...

Who’s Who: R.C. Smith

It’s time we officially thank and highlight the man that helps weld together NorCal Strength and Conditioning.  No, I am not figuratively talking about Shawn’s OCD qualities or Matt’s amazing ability to start dance parties from possibly the worst songs known to man (aka: Today’s Hits on Pandora).  The man I am talking about literally welds this place together.  R.C....
