We recently  migrated the site to an entirely new server and are ready to launch some incredibly exciting stuff!  

We want to especially thank Jason Greene aka  “DJ GREENIE” from Denver for all of our IT Infrastructure and Support.    We also owe a BIG THANKS to Keith Capobianco of KJC Designz Las Vegas for The Muscle Couple logo and site layout.  Keith has been tweaking the Masthead and Header for the last couple of weeks and it LOOKS AMAZING NOW!

Both of them have been instrumental in taking this Blog to where it stands currently.  We couldn’t continue without them.

If any of you are looking for a WEB ARCHITECT and or DESIGNER, please get in touch with us.  Both of these guys are as good as it gets. We’ll have much more on these two SUPERSTARS in a future blog.

Enjoy your Holiday Weekends!

Downtown LA Has a Sick New Spot!

The Muscle Couple has never written about a cool hangout/party spot until now.  

In fact for us to write about it, it has to be ONE KICK ASS VENUE!  Well, we’ve found it.

Suede Bar & Lounge in Downtown LA at the Westin Bonaventure is an oasis of cool-chic right square in the middle of the Downtown LA Corp workplace.  As they say right on their website:

“AS SEXY AS A VEGAS NIGHT__REFINED AS A FIVE STAR HOTEL”    

This Place Rocks!

In addition to their crowd jumping weekends, Thursday Night the Owners are bringing in a sophisticated-beautiful crowd who enjoy dancing and vibing to the Sounds of Progressive and Vocal House Music.  

It’s a very cool place to come and grab a drink after work or dinner to listen to some excellent tunes and people watch.  And if you’re single, I’m PRETTY CERTAIN the gene pool is of the highest quality. 😉  

The staff is really sexy and their service is A+ across the board.  The decor is slick and the sound system  and acoustics are perfect due to the intimate nature of the venue.  In addition they also serve some delectable appetizers in case you need to grab a quick bite.

Currently they have an excellent crew of LA based House DJ’s led by Jaime Narvaez of Nectar Records.  I’m fairly confident the owners plan to become even more ambitious in luring some Headlining House Music acts as the venue gains more notoriety in THE SCENE of So Cal.

Come bye soon and check it out!  You won’t regret it!

The Importance of Health Club Child Care

This is a very important topic for The Muscle Couple.

Nothing is more important to us than our concern for Alexandra’s care at all times.

There is no way Anh and I would be able to maintain our present fitness level and conditioning without the help and service of the kind women who work the Child Care facilities at our gyms:

  • Golds Gym Pasadena-Kids Club
  • 24 Hour Fitness Child Care

Both of these facillities are Zod-Sends for us.

We rarely trust anybody with the care of The Muscle B.  Thankfully both of these gyms have wonderful people working in them who absolutely love children.

The peace of mind Anh and I are able to gain 3-4 nights out of every week can’t be understated.  After a long day of work  or even a long day of  The Muscle B, being able to run to the gym and put Alexandra into the hands of willing-talented and qualified care givers for 60-90 minutes is incredible solace.  Being able to dedicate all of our energy and focus to our workout without cause for worry, is truly special to us.

We’d like to specifically mention Stella and Adella from the Kid’s Club at Gold’s Gym Pasadena.  Both of these women are like surrogate Grandmothers to Alexandra.  She genuinely enjoys being with them and Mommy and Daddy are ETERNALLY GRATEFUL for their care and concern.

If any of our readers are in a similar situation please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss.  As we said previously, finding somebody reliable and qualified to watch your infant children is SERIOUS BUSINESS! And if you are as serious as we are about your fitness, you should investigate this fully.  Anh would never have been able to get her pre-pregnancy figure back in under 6 months without their help and support.

Here is a picture of Stella with Anh and The Muscle B at the Kids Club @ Golds Gym Pasadena.

Thank You Stella!  We Love You and So Does Alexandra!

Thank You Stella! We Love You and So Does Alexandra!

Have a great week Everybody!

The Muscle B is 16 Months Old Now

And she is taking over The Muscle Couple’s life.  And we are letting her because we are suckers.  😉

Don’t worry.  It’s a temporary thing.  

She has entered a stage where she drops to the ground, screams, crys and rolls over when she wants us to come get her.   It’s quite classic.    

This morning she cried in our bedroom for 20 minutes before we got out of bed to get her.  It’s so hard to let them cry when trying to teach them a lesson.  Such the little manipulator.

We are on our way to a Sunday Wedding in So Cal!  And it’s absolutely gorgeous outside.  We’ll take some pics and put em on the blog later!

Here are some recent pics of Alexandra.  

We are so lucky she is such a happy baby!  She also loves to exercise.  She will stand in the middle of our lifecycle while we pedal away.  AWESOME!

“MIHWCS”-What Does It Mean?

Hey Everybody!   Hope everyone is having an amazing weekend wherever you may be.

It’s a beautiful day in So Cal and The Muscle Couple is about to “drop the top” and drive The Muscle B around town.  

We wanted to drop a quick explanation of what the Acronym we post at the end of every blog means.

“MIHWCS”

One of our favorite Dr Dre rap songs from The 1992 Chronic Album “Stranded on Death Row” has some great rap lyrics.  Lyrics that have made a lasting impression and influenced us even to this day.(paraphrasing the profanity out)

There are three types of people in this world”

“Those that don’t know what happened”

“Those that wonder what happened”

PEOPLE like us THAT MAKE THINGS HAPPEN”

When Anh and I formed our Myspace Page(2003) we wanted to come up with a catchy slogan emphasizing our “So Cal lifestyle” along with being motivated to get things done.  

Hence…. “Making It Happen-West Coast Style”

We hope you’ve been enjoying our articles.    We  have a slew of new ones on the way.  Be on the lookout for our new site redesign soon.  Here are a couple of training pics from this week.

Bimmerfest 2009

Wanted to drop a quick blog about the annual BMW Festival in Santa Barbara CA.

This is the 3rd year in a row I’ve attended the event.   For any BMW enthusiast it’s a “Show of Shows” to view hot BMW’s from around the world.   This year’s event was no exception.  I saw some absolutely amazing and sickly modded M3-5 and 6’s.

The drive up there at 5Am this morning was rather “spirited” avoiding the “awaiting and ready” California Highway Patrol.

But to my chagrin, I was unable to avoid them on the return ride to So Cal when I was pulled over for an “illegal front bumper”.  ;(

In BMW tuning speak, this means you don’t have a license plate bracket on the front of your car because it ruins the appearance of the wondrously beautiful M-Tech Package front grill. 😉  Not to fret, as the violation is correctable and won’t be shown on my driving record.  HOORAY!

To my boys, Mac-FlyHiepsta and Skeeter from the E-60.Net Boards You guys rock!   It wouldn’t have been the same without you.  Thanks for an incredibly enjoyable time and drive up the 101.

Here are some pics from the show:
