Monthly News & Updates 
It's crazy that it's already September. Summer flew by! We're happy to see everyone back from vacation and classes are filling up again. We've also been happy to see the gym packed at 5am! That is not an easy class to attend - it's early, it's dark, and the excuses to skip can go on and on. For the 5am & 6am attendees, we love that you're making it a priority in your day. We are also honored that you share your morning with us. Regardless of when you workout, we are so grateful to all the athletes that train with us. Classes have been growing, run team is HUGE, and our triathletes are consistently committed. What a joy and honor it is to coach such a fun group of athletes. 

We've got some things going on, some dates you need to save, and some celebrations worth sharing! Check out what's going on below!

Beginner triathletes race their FIRST EVER triathlon! 

A HUGE congrats to our Rookie To Race Triathletes that participated in their first triathlon, Dam 09. 400m swim, 9 mile bike, 4K run. 

Many of them joined not being able to swim more than a few laps and finished being able to swim 16 lengths! They remained dedicated to the 10 week program and finished as triathletes! Congratulations! And a BIG congrats to Coach Crystal for all her hard work, support and expertise to help get the newbies to the finish line. It was a team effort and everyone did so well! 

Our next Rookie To Race program will start up in 2017. 
TOP 3 Finishers of the 180 Fitness Challenge!    

Congrats to Anne Sheldrake, Cate Compton, and John Wahlstedt for an incredible total body transformation during the 180 Fitness Challenge Summer Shape Up. 

10 weeks, 6 workouts a week. Through exercise and diet they each lost considerable body fat, gained muscle and have become strong athletes in the gym! 

Anne is now on the run team training for the SA Rock'n'Roll Half Marathon, and John and Cate are monthly members taking IRON classes nearly every day at the gym! Great job guys! Way to remain dedicated to an active lifestyle!
