You've done it again - you pulled together to provide 5 Dakota County families with enough gifts and gift cards to make it a fantastic Christmas in 2014. MN Top Team friends, family and members bought and wrapped over 50 gifts and donated $400 towards making this happen. Huge thanks to the Armful of Love program for letting us participate. The feedback we got from everyone was how great it felt to do something for others and how they wish they could see the faces of the kids when they open their gifts. THANK YOU EVERYONE!!

Thursday Christmas Day - closed
Friday 12/26: NOON CrossFit class and NOON Boxing, no morning or evening classes

MN Top Team New Location BUILDING UPDATE
Things are HAPPENING at 3500 Dodd Rd! The entire inside is painted, all the trees and shrubs and bushes and junk is down, the electrical is nearly done, outlet locations have been identified, the plumbers have started plumbing the bathrooms (and showers!), all of the building materials have been ordered, the parking area has been expanded. We are WORKING over here!
The awesome Coming Soon banner fell down but it'll be back up shortly (the folks at Thomson wondered if the deal had fallen through since the sign was gone. No siree, we're moving full speed ahead.)
What's next? We need all hands on deck this Saturday 12/6/14 to help with outdoor work like operating the wood chipper and hauling logs and brush. You'll begin to notice that things in the gym are missing as we begin to move stuff over - like mirrors, pictures, stuff in closets - non essential stuff. This is happening people, pinch me.
We watched Robert move his pro record to 13-0 on Friday night at Grand Casino Hinckley by TKO in 90 seconds. His next fight will either be January 9th or February 6th. Robert is a force to be reckoned with in and out of the ring. He has been with us here at MTT for a year now and he brings a whole new energy level that is contagious. He's single handedly taken our Boxing program at Rosemount and grown it because of his coaching ability and his great way with people. Thank you, Robert!
We said goodbye to long time Eagan Boxing member, Joey Dohman, last week as he spent his last day with us before he headed off to the Army. What a great kid Joey is. He started at MTT as a pudgy quiet kid and through his determination and dedication he dropped a bunch of weight, became super lean, had some great boxing fights, helped out in our adult boxing classes (where the students loved him and his input) and became a leader to our youth boxers. We will miss him very much but we are beyond proud of the man he has become. He has promised to stay in touch and even send us letters that we can share with our members.
We've got a big day coming up for some of our Eagan Jiu Jitsu guys. Kyle Wick, Carl Bussian, Aaron Emory and Andy Volkart will be testing for their blue belt and Jeremy Clark will be testing for his brown belt on 12/20/14 at the Academy. We want EVERY BJJ member there that day to cheer them on (there will be no class in Eagan that day.) Also, James flew a plane once.
Muay Thai news:
There is a Striking seminar being held on 12/13/14 at The Cellar gym in St. Anthony by Artem Levin, pound for pound the greatest kickboxer in the sport today. Chris and Ian will be there and they'd love for everyone to join them. Also, Bordo and Ian will be heading to Thailand for training and will be gone for most of January. You can find them training hard every afternoon in the gym in preparation.
MTT CrossFit news:
We had an awesome turnout for our thanksgiving day WOD - 31 members and friends showed up for a great workout and for their "Beast Mode before Feast Mode" (credit to Sean T for the perfect title.)
We also had several boxing and BJJ members show up that day too!
Don't miss out on getting your MTT Hoodie and MTT Stocking cap! These are available ONLINE ONLY and only until midnight 12/7/14. We will not have these available for sale at MTT.
Tell everyone you know about our SUPER special at MTT Rosemount for boxing and jiu jitsu!
