Today is bittersweet. It is the final workout of BuffClass CrossFit at JC Fremont high school in Los Angeles. After three years of BuffClass and seven years at Fremont I am reluctantly moving on, to where I am not sure. Hopefully I will land at the new high school opening down the street. BuffClass will follow me wherever I go. It may change its name but it will always be a strength and conditioning class for everyone who wants to learn how to lift heavy stuff fast and properly, for those who want to get faster and stronger, for those who want to lose weight or gain it and for those who want to become mentally tough. I've looked forward to every BuffClass whether it was before, during or after school as this is my passion. I will continue to post workouts here and on the Facebook page. Stay active.

Lot of skill work and practice in the pool today. Finals start next Friday so everyone was working hard on shoring up their deficiencies.

Get after it today. Go on a long run or bike ride. Enjoy the sunshine late in the evening and have a great weekend.

The Semester is rapidly coming to a close as is my time at Fremont High School. I'm staying positive about this change even though I will be teaching at a new school for the 5th time in 12 school years. Each school change has been for the better. Both my students and I have greatly benefitted from the new opportunities that arise at each school. I plan to continue my quest to create the best PE class and BuffClass will be a part of that.
