Well it’s that time of year folks….I saw the holiday decorations out in stores prior to Halloween, and now we are only 36 days out from Christmas.  It seems the world around us reminds us earlier and earlier in hopes of gaining business.  I do love the holiday season, but sometimes it’s hard not to get a little stressed out.  All the shopping, the parties, the sugary treats galore at every turn, it’s all very tempting and easy to get off track of our normal routines.  As much as I love gift-giving, shopping in December is possibly one of my least favorite things to do….even the grocery store is crazy and overwhelming at times.  

As stores open earlier and earlier on Thanksgiving and Black Friday looms–which is a whole other blog of opinion for me–I always try to have my couple of gifts bought or made prior to the holidays to keep my stress levels to a minimum.  In fact I read that the best day to get many deals is actually the Monday before Thanksgiving…this year that is this coming Monday, November 24th.  So in hopes of your holiday stress giving way to enjoying the season of love, I figured let’s put it out there that we can not only stay local but we can also support some of our fellow athletes.  

Our Verve family is a great place to find not only committed athletes but also great artists and talented professionals.  From finding referrals to doctors, to finding friends to volunteer with this season, to a favorite paleo restaurant, you can check out our Verve Social Facebook group.  Whether you are looking to get a haircut, or commission an art piece what better than sharing the love with other people who know the value of hard work.  

The Community Resources page provides a listing of businesses affiliated with our Verve family of athletes.  Great resources for projects, presents, or perks!  In addition to it being on the right side of our blog, you can check it out here.  If you are a current Verve athlete and would like to add your business, please fill out the contact form with the necessary information and logos.  We would love to help support you outside of the gym as much as we love training you inside our walls.  

Also, for fellow Crossfitters you can always check out some great websites such as Rogue, Reebok, etc for more CrossFit-centric gear.  Who doesn’t need a new set of knee sleeves or a pink weight belt to help bring on the PR’s?  What are some of your favorite websites for gear?  What are you asking Santa for this year?
