Hey man...

You mentioned you were Canadian and I think you live in the GTA. Anyways, on an earlier post you mentioned that you would be helping out with a meet on July 6th. Where is it? If it's in or around Toronto, I'd like to come check it out!

Thanks

Yep, live in toronto. Train at fitness connection in the east end of the city, and Monster gym now in the west end.

The meet is July 6th.

Here is a link. It's the second event on the list, called Toronto Open, Blind, & Bench Press.

I don't know if it costs anything to just come watch or not. I'd guess it's free, but I can double check with Harnek tonight for you.

Excellent! I live in Mississauga so that's just down the street from my house...relatively speaking but it's like 10 minutes or something!

Monster Gym is right on the exit of 401 and Islington, the actual road is called Ronson if you know it.

The good thing about this gym is that it's always open. Yes, always. 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, every holiday, etc. Or so they say anyway.

What's the membership fee?

Ok, you should be fine to come watch the meet on the 6th. He said he wouldn't charge, and even if or when he would, it's only usually a couple bucks for spectators.

For monster gym, I think for the year after taxes and whatever, it costs $420 or something like that. Maybe $450? You can put $100 down, and then have 6 weeks to pay the balance. I got 13 months, so one extra month. I like the fact that it's open all the time. So many times I've missed a workout, and wanted to make up for it but my gym would be closed. At least I know if I couldn't sleep at 4am on a sunday I could go workout if I wanted. And there'd probably be strippers there too. :cool:

Hey did you showup to the comp? I was pretty busy, and don't know what you look like, so no clue if you were there or not.

Hey E...

No...I couldn't make it....had to do stuff around the house (stuff I'd been neglecting for awhile) and by the time that was over, it was pretty late in the afternoon. Let me know when the next comp is coming up!!!
