Some of the fittest athletes in North Carolina competed in Athletic Lab’s Tri-City Fitness Challenge. The events were a grueling test of strength, skill and endurance. All competitors contested the first 3 challenges with the top 5 competitors advancing to a final ‘Winner takes all’ final round. Ben Sturgill of Wilmington and Heather Farmer of Cary took home first place. Athletic Lab’s Mike Young, Will Peterson, James Gold, and Jen Matthews competed with Mike and Jen taking 3rd places respectively.
Beginning in September, Athletic Lab and Cary CrossFit will be having a monthly fitness challenge. The challenge will be held at the 6pm CrossFit / Performance Fitness session on the first Monday of every month (the first will be on September 5th). All members (Scholastic, CrossFit / Performance Fitness, and Elites) are welcome to attend.
What’s the Challenge? What’s at stake?
Members will complete a workout challenge against one of the members of our staff. If ANY member in the class should beat the staff member, the ENTIRE class will receive 10% off their next month’s membership and the winning member will receive 20% off. Class size will be limited to 12 with slots reserved for those that RSVP via our online membership manager.
To celebrate our 2nd year in business and show our appreciation for all who’ve made this possible, Athletic Lab is giving away gift bags to all our members. If you haven’t already picked up your gift bag please just check with a staff member. Anyone who had a membership during the month of August is eligible for a gift bag.
