2018 Challenge Winners Announcement

I wanted to say a few things before our 2018 fitness challenge winners are announced. All of our athletes are amazing and make coaching a gratifying experience. I have always believed it’s the athletes that make the gym. Without the athletes desire to improve their fitness there wouldn’t be us coaches.

Dan Tueller is our honorable mention. Dan improved his back squat and Deadlift 20 and 30 pounds respectively. His return from surgery has been a great example of resilience.

Our third place winner is Lisa Perkins who improved her back squat by 30 pounds and lost two inches off her waist! For those of you who don’t know Lisa has MS but she doesnt let that stop her from improving her fitness at the gym!

Second place goes to John Heywood who improved his “Cache Valley Inversion” time from 25:37 down to 21:14 as well as his Fran time from 6:34 down to 4:41! John was also able to put up a 265 pound clean.

Our overall winner belongs to the 5:15 pm class, Ty Pebley. He improved his back squat by 45 pounds up to 370! He added 25 pounds to his shoulder press and also trimmed his “Morrison” time down to 19:57 from 21:42 and his “Fran” time down to 5:26 from 6:15. Ty consistently shows up before class, lifts prewod, stays afterward and does another postwod session. The time and energy Ty has put into being constisent not only in the gym but also with his nutrition has earned him this recognition.

Good job to everyone for participating in this year’s challenge! Let’s keep up this consistency throughout the year!
