We are kicking off next month with our infamous quarterly strength & work capacity tests–

  • five barbell tests
  • two bodyweight tests
  • two macefit.com tests

Next we will have our monthly men’s strength club, “Iron Brotherhood”–

  • lift big
  • eat big
  • hang out with your brothers

Plus, our first macefit.com instructor certification will be held–

  • for coaches/trainers who want to lead the pack, not follow the herd
  • be well-positioned for the next wave of fitness training macefita1
