OCTOBER IS FOR…..ROWING!!!!

Announcing Regular Arsenal Rowing Program By Patrick Larcom   It’s October and there’s finally a chill in the air.  The leaves are turning, Coach Jamie is crushing 4,000 footers in NH, weddings are being celebrated, the Open is back again, fruits and veggies are in every meal, and there’s some crazy coach getting pumped about rowing on Thursday mornings.  All that aside, Boston is probably [...]

FEATURED ATHLETE – BRITTANY SHEPARD : NO FEELINGS JUST FACTS

There are few people I have met throughout my 17 years as an athletic trainer who have made the type of transformation that Brittany has. Brittany is one of the silent leader board predators of the 6am, she is always lurking, always grinding and it is never a surprise to see her put up big numbers on her lifts or PR a metcon.  She is [...]

FEATURED ATHLETE – PHEDRA HAMILTON

I recently received this unsolicited email from one of the quiet heroes of the 5am class, Phedra Hamilton.  There is no doubt that Phedra has made incredible progress over the last 15 months, and I'm always humbled to have such sincere attention and compliments directed at the gym, myself and the staff.  In my opinion though, who is really being acknowledged is the Arsenal community.  [...]

ANNOUNCING ARSENAL BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU ACADEMY

Announcing the Arsenal Brazlian Jiu Jitsu Academy: As I have shared with some of you, my introduction to the "fitness" community actually started with martial arts.  Boxing, wrestling, and a slew of more formal martial arts formed the beginnings of my passion for physical, mental and spiritual training.  It began out of a need - not necessarily to BE safe - but to FEEL safe.

SNOW DAYS – SMALL ACTS OF DEFIANCE

I love snow days in Boston. In all honesty, when I moved to Boston 7 years ago I thought that no such thing would exist.  I'm from the deep south, Atlanta by way of New Orleans, and if a single snow flake touches the ground where I am from, then the entire city shuts down and a state of emergency is declared. Cars start sliding [...]
