1.  This needs to be moved up to number one this week.  Gentlemen, please avoid the uptown gym during the afternoon peak hours.  Be aware of what the member's have to do and what your tasks are and don't take pullup spots or platforms during the general class you can't use a rower if they have rowing.  Look at the amount of people signed up for the class and head to mid-city if its too big >12.  If it is a smaller class (<12) and you are training with them, ask the coach the best way to stay out of the way.  We would hate to eliminate any possibility of training during any class uptown as a blanket policy so please try to work with us on this one.

2.  Some of you have asked for an email list.  Please reply to comments with your email.  (And your results!)  Please post any and all PR's
