After a great many requests from our members we are excited to announce that we have purchased a new piece of weight equipment which arrived just before the New Year. The new piece of equipment is a Precor Rear Delt/Pec Fly selectorized machine and has been well received. In fact, in just a couple of weeks, this weight machine is one of our most heavily used pieces of equipment! Come on in and give it a try.
Pictured is Jess Brewer wearing the medals he won at an international track and field tournament last August (2016).
The 3 gold medals are all from the Americas Masters Games in Vancouver: short hurdles (new BC M70 record), long hurdles, and 4x400m relay (new Canadian M70 record, by nearly 36 seconds!).
We congratulate Jess -- you make us proud!
