Let me start off by saying I LOVE my Ohio Crew. We kick ass. Why do we kick ass? Bc we have passion and drive... We have fire in our eyes and desire in our hearts. What do we desire? We desire to live lives that reflect the values of Animal. We believe so much in this company and what it stands for that we go all out.

How do we go all out? We volunteer year after year to Intern in the Cage... Even when we're not picked as Interns we step up and help out, when asked and even when we're not asked. We open our homes up to other Forvm members and to Animal Athletes. We drive to airports to pick people up when flights are rerouted.

We drive to ghetto areas in New Jersey to donate clothes to natural disaster victims. We drive out to Illinois to join Animal in supporting the Special Olympics. We are constantly stepping up to the plate; volunteering to help out at meets and to help fellow athletes.

We bust our butts coordinating ABCs that are consistently growing in attendance, generating buzz about the company, and bridging gaps between the different types of fitness competitors, proving time and time again that at our very core we are all the same. Slightly crazy, but driven to improve, to learn, to grow.

There's a reason why we're called the Heartland... It's bc we have fucking heart! I am proud of my Ohio Crew.

With all that being said, I'm bringing to your attention our next ABC.

June 27th, myself and the Cincy/Dayton guys will be hosting a monster of an ABC at Eaton Barbell.

Once again we are looking to improve, to double our attendance numbers, and blow people out of the water with an experience they'll be talking about until the Cage 2016.

So please stay tuned... It's going down for real.

sounds like you all going to have a ball. I love watching the way the Ohio Animals get down. When I look at what I want to try to get Georgia to do, it's epitomized by the stuff you listed. This sentence especially is huge: "We drive to ghetto areas in New Jersey to donate clothes to natural disaster victims. We drive out to Illinois to join Animal in supporting the Special Olympics. We are constantly stepping up to the plate; volunteering to help out at meets and to help fellow athletes".

For real. That's what the Iron Game has always been about, a community of people who the rest of the world doesn't quite understand, banding together to help each other and the rest of the world.

This summer is shaping up to be amazing. I can't be there this year because my wife and I will (God willing) either be proud parents of a newborn baby girl or I'll be coaching my wife as she delivers our daughter into the world. But I promise if that wasn't her due date, I'd be there. So guess that means you've got to do another one next year right?

Animal Rep! I've been in contact with some of the crew at corporate and I've been notified that Derek Kendall and Brandon Lilly are on the roster for this ABC. Cammarhino told me they're working on getting our man P Diesel out and that he's sending us everything but the kitchen sink! So I'm feeling pretty good about this event.

Look for social media to be blowing up soon... Once June rolls around we're planning on posting once a week to keep this fresh in everyone's minds. Food is still to be decided. The gym owner talked about a buddy who lives near by and owns a restaurant coming out and cooking for us all. I know AJ was gonna talk to him about waiving the entrance fee as well... If he agrees to that I think we should ask for donations of any amount and pick a charity to represent.

Needless to say the Ohio Crew will be busy bees once June kicks off! But I'm feeling really good about this.

Gunrock, this totally warms my heart... Thank you for your kind words! You know the Ohio Crew will be thinking of you and your family during the ABC. We hope everything goes smoothly for you and we definitely understand that what you've got going on takes precedence over a gathering of your second family.

And you know it!! If I get my way Ohio will for sure be doing these ABCs (our June and PreCage) annually! Keep watching John, and if you need any help w anything let us know for sure!

I just came across this forum a couple weeks ago and saw this last week and registered immediately to throw my name on the list, but just got my account activated this morning. Anyways...I live like 20 mins from eaton so I'm definitely not going to pass up the chance to come to this. I have also have at least one more person who says he's coming with, and a couple maybes. Also, since it's not really mentioned elsewhere in the thread, is there any entrance fee for this?

Oh, this was AJ and MAB, I'm just along for the ride... ;-) ... They worked hard (with Corp since like March) to get it to happen... They did a great job... ;-)

Isabelle looked like she had a great time... I saw her doing some pretty impressive handstands!!

haha yeah she is really in to gymnastics, she loves it. They told her to work on upper body strength and if you noticed that is all she wanted to do. This kid is unstoppable, she would have worked out for 8 hours if I let her. She has scoliosis and will not let it stop her. She told me when I pulled my lat that she has back pain sometimes too so she knows it hurts. Hard to be a big ol' tough guy w/ kids like her around.

I seriously love everything I'm seeing on this thread.

First off... What happened to the Vimeo I posted with Ashley's video for the ABC... If you guys can't see it on here please make sure to stop by her photography facebook page and watch it. She did a great job.

Second, Pete, like everyone else said... Thank you for coming. If the guys that waited around to see you tag you in any pics please share with us! I'd love to see the shirt they had made for you. And you are always welcome at our ABCs... You and Charlie for sure!

Mark, I loved seeing your daughter there. I think it was a lot for her to take in, but she was taking it in and making mental notes. I love that she adores her shirt already... Next time I get smells I'll set one aside for her! Seems like you've got inspiration and motivation right under your roof. They are little sponges and they watch everything you do and say... Bring her again sometime!


Dee, again thank you for all your help the day of! And for spending so much one on one time with me... As I was losing my mind and memory... I still haven't found my socks!!!

AJ... We should plan an ABC together again! Maybe try to get the Jersey corporate boys to come join in on the fun!

I actually love hearing that... I've got something big in mind. Already talked to James and P about it... It would take AT LEAST a year of planning. Been talking to some ppl who can help out and they've pointed me in the direction of Craig Smith... I probably need you to pass my info on to him and then make my way out to Eaton to meet him. But it would def help to have you and the Missus on board 😄

Alright all...

8th Annual post Mid Atlantic Grand Prix Ohio Valley ABC (say that 3x fast...lol)

November 12, 2017
Noon to ???
The Body Shop in Yorkville, Ohio

I'm going to try to get some of my junior high and high school kids to come and see what it's all about. I have some that are getting interested in lifting and I want to make sure that they get some good information from those in the know... I'd love to see some of the Animal Family at this ABC to share some stories and knowledge.

Any questions, please contact me!!!
