This week is the final week of the 2010 Empower Personal Training Decathlon. Check that, we are actually down to the final days of the challenge…just two more days of competition to go! The event this year has been entertaining and competitive to say the least. Being challenged to reach personal records in each event has brought out the best in everyone, and this has been reflected in some of the off the charts numbers that have been posted . Clients are coming in regularly to try to better their scores in hopes of reaching the top 3. Our faceoff event has been moved to Saturday, November 13th, @ 1pm. If you are not one of the top 3 male and female contestents participating, why not come on out and watch them perform some pretty awesome feats? Once again, congratulations to everyone who has made this year’s Decathlon such a big success.
