“Seek first to understand, then seek to be understood.”
Stephen R. Covey

It’s been an interesting day at MSG? Stacks of new peeps coming in and training, stacks of new gear to play with.

We received a bunch of gear today just before our 1230hr session. What do you do when there is no forklift on hand?

Functional Warmup – unload 4 pallets for time!

We recieved a boatload of new gear just as our lunchtime session started. Who needs a forklift when you have a bunch of MSGers on hand!

Gear waiting to be unpacked and stored.

Gear and toys – check! Floor space, ah – standby!

Coach Andy couldn’t resist the urge to have a play with the new bars and bumpers.
