Physio Friday

Here at the T9 Clubhouse we work hard and play even harder, even when the summer sun sings it’s siren song.  Sometimes moving seamlessly from morning meetings to a quick lunch, a few pull-ups, then back to the grind, one might mistake us for a very serious bunch.  And we are very serious — about getting outside and trying something new, just like our parents used to hound us to, and most importantly, we’re dead serious about having fun at every opportunity. Knowing what is going to happen around here is just not possible!  If there is one thing I have learned in my six years here at Title Nine, it’s that the unexpected that you didn’t expect is exactly what you should expect. No, really.  When someone says “Megaball,” they really do mean a six foot tall ball used to play some sort of crazy game.  When someone starts dancing at the end of a company meeting, it very well could be a full blown flash mob kicking off.  And when someone emails a video in jest, it just might end up being an official (well supervised!) Feats of Strength event.

When you do step out and try that something new this summer, just make sure you make those parents extra proud and wear clean underwear.

Mom, Dad, you’re welcome.

Do the T9 Countdown – Day 3: Show Us Your Team

Day 3: Show Us Your Team!

Admit it - you couldn’t have gotten where you are today without a little help along the way.  Be it family or friends, teammates, teachers or pets we've all had someone who’s backed us up and kept us going when all we wanted to do was get cozy with Ben & Jerry.  You can’t thank them enough, so here’s your chance to show them off!

The Payoff: Love ‘em or hate ‘em (sometimes both), your team has picked you up, pushed you forward, and made you a better you.  And we want to hear about ‘em!  Share your story and/or photo below and you could win a Limited Edition Power of 9 Tee and Title Nine Water Bottle.  Remember, a team is a team, no matter what form it may take, so brag about Fido, your knitting group, or your roller derby girls.  They’ve earned it!
