Pan Am 2011 Here We Come!

What an exciting day here at Maxercise. Today was our annual fundraiser for the CBJJ Pan American Games in LA, March 24-27th, 2011.  The team has been training very hard for the past couple months and today was no different. Since it was also our fundraiser day, we invited ALL students to come and train. We had 23 students training BJJ in Philadelphia today and everyone trained so great! The Competition Team has a few more weeks of hard work before we head to California. It looks like we will have 12 athletes competing this year and close to 25 for the New York Open April 16th.  Tournament season is upon us and I am excited to see how everyone does this year. The Liberty Bell Judo Classic is the same weekend as Pan Ams and we will send a small but strong Judo Team to that as well. I am sure Sarah, Josh and Greg will have a great showing.

Directly following the Team Training today we headed across the street for our Fundraiser and Auction at the Las Vegas Lounge. We had 50 people in attendance! We had a great time and everyone had a lot of fun winning so many great prizes. Some of interest were Tennis and Guitar Lessons, Private Kettlebell, BJJ and MMA private lessons, an amazing chocolate peanut butter cake made by Maggie’s Cakery, the coolest Tumi luggage, Laser hair removal gift certificates and of course our main prizes including a digital camera, digital video sport camera and a stunning diamond necklace from our friends at Bucci Jewelers! I thank everyone for their continued support and endless desire to better our every growing team.
