20 Stations plus 5 contingency station in case we had extra pax of 20.  21 Pax, so 21 stations equaled 1 cycle.  Each station using equipment offered 2 to 3 weight options to accommodate all fitness/strength levels. We used Tabada Pro App as the timer (45 seconds work 20 seconds rest for 1st cycle through station and adjusted to 38 seconds work on 2nd cycle)

Halftime between cycles was a opportunity to re-tool or make adjustments.  PAX agreed to keep the weights the same, but adjusted the timer down from 45 seconds work to 38 seconds work.
YHC feeling gassed misquotes Les Brown in Tommy Boy fashion, but ultimately gets the point across.  The real quote: “Do what is Easy and life will be Hard. Do what is Hard and life will be Easy.”
Example of doing the extra and avoiding the easy: The Salesman that makes the extra call, The Father that spends extra time with his son or daughter, The husband that buys flowers for his wife for no reason.
Continued Prayers for Stitch and his family after the loss of our F3 brother Shock-treatment.
