PostSubject: Team training session at Magni Barbell!   Wed Apr 02, 2014 9:51 pm

Hey guys, I just finished talking to Brian Collins of Magni Barbell, a powerlifting-oriented gym here in Iowa City. They're just getting opened up, but they already have a pretty good amount of awesome equipment and are looking to get even more. I know that we have members looking for better places to train, and I asked Brian if we could bring a group down to Magni and have a training session, in order to generate interest and likely get them some business from us.

Right now, we've tentatively set the session up for Saturday, April 19th. I think this is a good day for us to go down and have a training session together. This is subject to change, of course, so if we get a majority of people wanting to go some other day, just post here or on Facebook and let your voice be heard. This will be a team decision.

Link to Magni Barbell's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/magnibarbell

A few notes about the gym:
It's on the west side of Iowa City, just off of highway 1 and 218.
Membership fees are $35/month (we're not paying for this session, this is just for those of us looking to train there long-term)
They have a fair amount of cool equipment, including Texas Power Bars, Swiss bars, a Rogue yoke, a shit ton of plates and dumbbells, and some good looking racks and benches.
They have also ordered an EFS monolift, power rack, and about 2000lb more plates.

What I need are people committed to come to this training session and actively participate in discussion on when we're going, car pooling, etc. Also, if you are interested in joining the gym and training there for more than just this session, let me know so I can get a tentative list of people interested and let Brian Collins know how many people could be looking to join the gym. We're getting this session free, so we gotta have something to give back to these guys.

/\ this. seriously considering it for the summer (may, june, july, august). I can go the 19th, not till late afternoon/evening though.

Why not hold a team training session there instead of the olympic weight room on a Friday for example? Since we know people already have that time alloted to powerlifting anyways. Just a thought.

Probably no fee, they're not a commercial gym or anything.

Interested in session. I would just need transportation.

I think the 19th would work fine for me.

So a fair amount of people I have talked to have said that Saturday isn't the best day because of Easter and stuff. Friday has been suggested to me. We could do this in place of the Friday session at the Field House, which almost always has good attendance, so it stands that a session at Magni could have the same attendance level.

Friday certainly works for me, as I have zero classes and I am planning on training anyway. What say you all?

I think that would be the best route. The Friday session almost always has good attendance, so there should be plenty of people willing/able to go to Magni. I don't want this to be a thing where like four people go.

FYI, I will be training at Magni every Saturday and Sunday (when I don't have drill, that is--e.g. this weekend) and most weekdays as well, so if anybody wants to tag along, hit me up and we can get swole together.
