As a college athlete on the rowing team, I was eager to find something with similar camaraderie that would keep me fit and push my limits. I was happy to hear about EPIC through a friend, and immediately got hooked once I started taking classes. I admired members who would proudly come daily, and have the muscles to show for it. Before I knew it, I was coming every day myself, craving more and more of a challenge and visibly getting stronger. It’s exciting coming to class and working hard alongside my new EPIC buddies. All my friends and family know it – I can’t get enough of EPIC!
Have you done any OCRs? If so, which?
Yes! I have completed the Spartan Super in NJ last year as well as the Spartan Beast in NJ this year, with a few others upcoming for 2015!
The Rope Climb
What has been your biggest accomplished since joining EPIC?
Conquering the monkey bars!
What's next on your list of goals that EPIC can help you achieve?
Looking forward to mastering the traverse wall and rope climb, as well as up my overall speed-work training.
What would you tell other members of EPIC? What about those thinking of trying or not yet at EPIC?
EPIC coaches are unparalleled in expertise, athleticism and inspiration. I’ve learned so much from each Alex, Brendan, Julia, Sam, Leanne, Alyssa and Teddy. They’ve been extremely motivational individuals to aspire to, and I’m so thankful and appreciative for all their dedication. For new members thinking about joining EPIC, I can say this….DON’T BE AFRAID!
One of my favorite sports quotes came from Derek Jeter – he said, “There may be people that have more talent than you, but there’s no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do.” To me, this is what EPIC is all about. You leave nothing on the mat and give it YOUR all every class. Everything else will fall into place. I’m so happy to be a part of EPIC and look forward to meeting new members, completing more races and getting faster!
