Thanks to Vivs for sending us a few snaps of the Holiday Party! By my count we had 100+ people come through at some point during the evening and true to form the food & drink were pretty top notch as far as potluck-style shindigs inside of a gym can go.

The “Get To Know You AR Swolemates Bingo” and “AR Trivia” games were hilarious and we are already getting lots of requests to bring them back next year — so props to Coaches Hillary, LGB, Megan, Molly, Liz, and others for doing such an awesome job putting that together. WHAT. COLOR. TANK. TOP. IS. BRET. WEARING??!!

We hope you had a fun time and were able to mix it up with your AR friends old and new. Here’s to a wonderful rest of the Holiday Season — may the close of 2018 be happy, healthy, and full of fitness as we all look to make 2019 the greatest year yet!
