The November Monthly Challenge – Each year, Pat’s Gym participates in the Concept2 World Competition SkiErg for the 1000m race for the best time. In the past, Pat’s Gym has had our athletes place as winners of this competition. With our focus on aerobic capacity, and mental toughness, I am confident that our athletes will place well in this competition again. By “placing,” I mean our athletes have held the Concept2 Ski Sprints World title. That’s quite an accomplishment and we’re so proud of them. I highly recommend that you give the SkiErg Competition a try. You will be amazed at what you can accomplish, when the pressure is on, and you put your mind to it.
October Monthly Challenge – October’s Monthly Challenge was a fun one, and everyone could do it! It was one of those challenges that you could do throughout the month and see your improvement. Our athletes were surprised with their progress.
The October Challenge was:
- Coaches: Max double-unders in a row (two times around)
- Athletes: Max single jump rope revolutions in a row (one time around)
- The athletes with the most revolutions (counting was one time around for athletes and two times around for coaches) wins!
The winners of the Pat’s Gym September Monthly Challenge were Ross with 592 number of rotations, and Monica with 468 number of rotations. Great job!
