Mustangs win B.C. golf title

Immaculata top team at the provincial A championship in Rossland

A intensive, five-month training program paid dividends for four Kelowna women who recently competed at an international fitness event in the U.S.

Carly Mitchell, Claire Yasinski, Anne Girtz and Kristen Olychuk combined for 21 medals at the Tri Fitness World Challenge May 16 to 18 in Florida.

The training was intense and focused on developing their overall athletics as the girls were required to bench press, box jump, shuttle run, run the obstacle course, do a fitness routine showcasing their strength and flexibility, as well as competing in Grace & Physique.

Mitchell, who trained the team for the competition at VO2Max Personal Training, placed second in the Fitness Model Division and seventh overall for Tri Fitness. She was also entered into the Tri Fitness Hall of Fame for running the course in 58 seconds.

Both Olychuk and Yasinski placed first in their age categories for Fitness Skills and Obstacle Course, respectively.  For their first time attending the event, the show’s founder, Al Rosen was very impressed with how well prepared the team was, especially considering the lack of obstacles to train on.

“The obstacle course was so fun,” Yasinski said with a laugh. “I wanted to run it again right after I finished. I felt like a kid on a playground again.”

“We’re looking forward to going again next year and seeing if we can improve our personal best times,” Mitchell added. “It’s an amazing feeling of accomplishment and pride to compete in an event like this! It’s so inspiring to see everyone from all ages and walks of life doing something like this and seeing the changes and improvements that my own team has made along the way.”  Trainign will begin again in the fall so for anyone looking for more info on Tri Fitness or the please contact Carly at 250-826-8809 or email carly@vo2maxpersonaltraining.com
