PRIME ON THE ROAD – PT2 – Update
As I write this, we are sitting in the San Francisco International Airport… waiting out our 5-hour delay for a flight to San Diego. Since we have some down time, here is a quick update on our PRIME on the ROAD – PT 2 trip so far…
Day 1: Saturday – March 17th, 2018 | PRIME Demo w/ N1 Education Team
We landed in Denver around noon, grabbed our rental car, and headed downtown for our Hotel. Sounds simple enough, right? Wrong. Apparently St. Patrick’s Day is a big deal in Denver (in retrospect… “duh”), but we didn’t plan for just how big of a deal it is – as in full-blown parade complete with road closings. So, the 30-minute drive to the hotel was an adventure, but we made it. The delay gave us just enough time to grab a quick lunch at Whole Foods before we headed to The Gym At Prospect in Longmont, CO – the host gym for the PRIME Demo with the team from N1 Education.
The demo was from 5PM to 7PM and was chalked full of excellent information. Coach Kassem shared tons of great insight in to the features and advantages of PRIME equipment. All of the attendees (both on-site and online) got a comprehensive overview of the science behind our SmartStrength™ Technology and were able to have all of their questions answered. If you weren’t able to be at the event, be sure to check out the video of the Facebook LIVE Steam HERE.
Day 2: Sunday – March 18th, 2018 | SC Fitness – Burlingame, CA
Sunday we headed to the airport for the next city on the tour – San Francisco, CA. We landed in SF in the early afternoon local time and headed directly to our first customer visit – SC Fitness. When visiting customers for the first time, it’s a little like Christmas as a kid. You have no idea what to expect, but the anticipation of seeing the equipment in its new home is always exciting. SC Fitness didn’t disappoint. Tucked away in an unassuming commercial park, SC Fitness is one of the most impressive private training facilities you’ll find. At 2,000 sq. ft., what SC Fitness lacked in size, it more than made up for with equipment and efficiency. Owner, Steven Chou, has done and incredible job of maximizing every single inch of the space. Every piece of equipment was calculated and served a purpose. Featuring over 10 pieces of PRIME equipment, including a PRIME Steel Double Half Rack, Plate Loaded and Hybrid pieces, and a plethora of PRIME Accessories, the facility is a trainer’s dream. Huge SHOUT OUT to Steven for his hospitality and support. We are honored to be part of your masterpiece! For more info, give Steven a follow on Instagram at @choco_vanilla_deadlift_gorilla
Day 3: Monday – March 19th, 2018 | Santa Cruz, CA
Monday was schedule as a bit of a down day to play catch up on rest and work. That was until we got a DM on Instagram from a prospective customer looking to learn more about PRIME. After a quick arm workout, we hopped in the car and headed for Santa Cruz to meet up. To be respectful of the customer and their plans, we kept it short, but it was an awesome meeting with great people. More news coming soon – so stay tuned!
Day 4: Tuesday – March 20th, 2018 | Santa Rosa, CA
As we were planning the west coast trip, we really wanted to make an effort to get to Santa Rosa to visit Saiyan Strength. The online buzz around this facility, which isn’t even open yet, had certainly peaked our interest. Along with the 20+ pieces of PRIME equipment, the word on the street was this place would feature equipment from brands like Watson, Westside Barbell, Eleiko, Elite FTS, and more! Well, we can report to all of you, it’s all true… and it’s epic. Upon walking in, you pass through what will eventually be the front office area for the gym before passing through a door that opens up to a warehouse space with over 15,000 sq. ft. packed with the best strength equipment in the world. It’s literally the equivalent of Disney Land for a serious strength enthusiast. We’ll let the pictures do the talking, but this is the definition of a destination gym. If you are within a 4 or 5 hour drive, make it. If not, book airfare. It’s really that special. Follow them on IG to get all the details as they prep for opening: @saiyanstrengthgym
So that leads me to today. A travel day originally planned to get us to San Diego for IHRSA. While it looks like we will still make it out today, we are working to reschedule a couple of meetings that unfortunately were casualties of the delay. We’ll report back with a full update, but be sure to keep checking in to Facebook and Instagram to follow the happenings of the rest of the trip. Until then…
