The best part about the Battle of the Gyms at our HIGH 5IVE 4FITNESS event is how all these amazing fitness professionals come together on one field to support a common cause: raising healthy kids for a healthy world! I love watching the athletes chat, cheer, laugh, tease, taunt and ultimately toast each other before, during and after the day's activities. (The after party is usually at Nomads but based on this year's attendance, we're gonna need a bigger venue!) _____________________________________________
24 Hr. Fitness was our very first BOTG Champion and Crunch Fitness reigned supreme in 2016. Since then, they've consistently brought tough teams to contend with every year. Mega thanks to 24's Kyle O'Brien, Jonathon Shimpaugh, Brittney Druzbik and Katie Johnson and Crunch's Sy Randall, Nathalie Nichols, Hunter Freeman and Brittany Newman for bringing their game (and guns)! Can't wait for next year... May 19th, SAVE THE DATE! #HIGH5IVE4FITNESS #BattleoftheGyms #24hrFitnessSanClemente #TheNoblePathFound...
On behalf of The Noble Path Foundation, I am very excited to present a special edition of our HEALTHY HEROES feature. Not only is the spotlight on the LAS PALMAS GARDEN PROJECT this go around, but the school also took home the Mike Katke Inspiration Award* at our 4th Annual HIGH 5IVE 4FITNESS event last weekend, so this is a double duty post and it’s a goodie…
THE SCHOOL GARDEN PROJECT at Las Palmas Elementary began about six years ago and today encompasses not only a large garden area of plants and vegetables, but also a greenhouse, compost center and an outdoor amphitheater which serves as an open air classroom. Students are treated to workshops that blend physical activity and cooperation with science and nutrition.
Led by 4th/5th combo teacher Paola Paz Soldan and supported in full by Principal Kristen Nelson, teachers are given a space to sow seeds and tend their plants. With the help of “garden paren...
New this year to our Battle of the Gyms was the Member Division. This category gave members of the participating BOTG clubs the opportunity to experience the same thrill of competition that their top fitness instructors, trainers and coaches get in the Elite Battle.
Conquering our course by pushing themselves to their limits— and beyond— proved to be a challenge that everyone embraced with a vengeance. When it comes to optimal performance, physical exertion and sheer mind over matter, these athletes battled with just as much heart and soul as our Elite competitors and the roaring cheers and thunderous applause was every bit as enthusiastic and well-earned!
Congratulations to SOCAL BOOT CAMP and their winning team members Michael Garberich, Mike Henson, Jessica Nenadov and Linda Cederton for taking home the gold. Kudos also to second place finishers SCBC#3 and to Crossfit Dana Point for third... Great job ev...
Good coaches are out there. GREAT coaches, however, are hard to find. If your coach builds you up, rather than knocking you down - not by false praise but by taking the time to get to know you as a person, so they can tailor their approach to your tendencies; If your coach checks their own ego at the door and doesn't tie up their self-worth in your results; If your coach inspires you to do more than you think you can, entertaining possibilities that stretch the limits of your beliefs, then chances are good you have found a GREAT teacher.
Examples of these leaders were in abundance at our HIGH 5IVE 4FITNESS event. It was inspiring to watch them in action. A huge thank you to ALL the gyms who particpated, as well as the teachers and schools. You guys are what makes everything we do possible and we couldn't be more grateful... 💚
