Bro-lympic Team competition #WINNING



Bro-lympic Team competition #WINNING

27 men came to stomp on and make fun of Participation Trophies at Dromedary on a 100% humidity morning.  After YHC’s preblast called out all the competitors, I was interested to see who showed.  Not To my surprise, there were only a few that took the morning off for good reasons.  #DoctorsNote.  Thanks to some brainstorming with Foundation the night before, YHC tried to implement some friendly competition into the workout.
