Did You Lose Feeling in Your Fingertips, too?

8 PAX showed up (on time) in absolute frigid conditions. Our co-Q, Coco, was designated for the 2nd half of the Q and believed that meant he could sleep an extra 30 minutes and just show up for his portion of the workout. Interesting approach that I may try in the future. In the end, […]

Whether it’s the synergies of the chosen exercises, the culmination exhaustion after a summer of pushing one another to the […]

“Y Tho”

The most common response when someone posts at Animal House is “y tho”. Why: because we have been blessed with the good fortune of being healthy.   Also, we are animals and we show up to push ourselves to the limit so we can get better.   I know without F3 I wouldn’t be in […]
