Conditioned to Win

  On December 6, 2014 Spark Sport Conditioning  will be hosting a workout they are calling “Conditioned To Win,” sponsored by CAPITAL JEEP!

The workout is a gruelling combination Rowing a 500m sprint, THEN Deadlifting 1.5x your bodyweight 5X and THEN performing Barbell Plate Burpess (Yes…that means doing a burpee while holding a plate that goes on a barbell, lol) 5X!

They will repeat that combination 5 TIMES!!!!

As you can tell, the theme this year is 5! Why? This is SPARK Sport Conditionings fifth year hosting a fundraiser event and its a fun way to incorporate a rep scheme into our workouts and….to keep track of what year it is. ;)

The competitors will be members of SPARK and some of our very own SPECIAL OLYMPICS ALBERTA - EDMONTON Athletes who have been participating in training sessions at the gym this year in the Healthy Living Program.

There will also be a Power Lifting Demonstration performed by our Power Lifters prior to the workout taking place!

We encourage anyone and everyone involved in Special Olympics to come down and watch and see the chaotic and fun atmosphere we have at the gym that day and hopefully see us reach our goal of $45,000.00.

We hope to see everyone out on the 6th.
