Always a flurry of good stuff happening here at Minnesota Top Team! Here's the run down:
All them babies!! It's like a fertility factory around here; MTT CF member Ryan brought in her baby boy and is back hard at it after only 5 weeks! MTT Personal Trainer Kyle Norman and MTTCF member Courtney Norman had their first baby boy named Jackson James. He's a tiny little perfect doll and contrary to popular belief, he was not named after James Hammond. AND...last but certainly not least, BJJ Instructor Jon and Jamie Grilz had their 2nd child, a beautiful baby girl named Anna Kay.
Jon will still be teaching BJJ in Eagan on Tuesdays and Thursdays but Saturdays for a while he's got family time scheduled. Which brings me to...
Andrew Kapel, well known MMA fighter, non FB'er and all around great guy is now guest teaching for us at both our Eagan and Rosemount locations. Why? Polish hurt his arm and needs 6 weeks off (or, as Jeremy says, "until Polish gets his nail polish fixed or earrings replaced") and Andrew will cover his Tuesday/Thursday BJJ Classes in Rosemount, MN and Monday/Wednesday and Saturday (Jon Grilz's class) Jiu Jitsu in Eagan. Why monday/wednesday too? well, because.....
Brandon Bergeron got an adult job! "B" or "Bergie" is now officially a legitimate law enforcement officer and we're so proud of him AND happy for him as he begins his new career. He too will be out for 6 weeks until his schedule switches.
MTT Boxing Coach Robert Brant is in Texas until 8/18 training for his next fight which is 8/22/14 in Hinckley. This is a fight that is going to give Robert a run for his 12-0 pro record and if you plan to go you should buy tickets ASAP. Limited $35 General Admission tickets available at MTT Eagan. $50 VIP tickets also available on request - pre-payment required.
MTT CF members Andrew and Grethe Tongen went to AFRICA and climbed Kilimanjaro. Definitely blog worthy; they had an amazing time on a trip of a lifetime.
Finally - the Eagan outlet mall opens in another week. You care about this because it will affect the traffic on the way to the gym if you're coming from 77 or South on 13. Be prepared.
