The New Year is upon us and you know what that means, it’s time to set some new goals to crush in 2018! Becoming healthier is always one of those resolutions at the top of the list, but it appears that “getting fit” is what people are really interested in for 2018. If this is on the top of your list, let Athletic Republic be your work-out home this New Year.   

Another interesting fun fact we read is that according to U.S. News, approximately 80% of all resolutions fail by the second week of February. All things considered, we have the solution to get you fit and keep your commitment going way past February. Starting January 2nd, we’re launching our second AR-FIT Challenge! Building on the success of our last challenge, we want to keep the momentum going and get more Parkites involved! The challenge will once again consist of 9-weeks where participants will be challenged to achieve their personal fitness goals by completing a minimum of 25 classes. That averages out to 2.7 classes per week.

OK, so now for the good part. From the 30+ participants that took part in our first challenge, we saw an average improvement of 20% from pre-test to post-test. Those are amazing results! So what are you waiting for, give us a call at 435-729-7230 or stop by to learn how we can help you get AR-FIT in 2018! See below for additional details and read what some of our first challenge participants are saying.
  • High Intensity Interval Training (60-minute classes)
  • Personalized Small Group Classes (maximum 8:1 client-to-trainer ratio)
  • Pre & Post Challenge Testing
  • Nutritional Assessment
  • Weekly Prizes
  • Finisher Swag
  • End-of-Challenge Party
  • Cost: $300

My goal for participating in the Athletic Republic AR-FIT Challenge was to become faster at hiking and skinning up the mountain when I ski the backcountry. I’ve typically spent the ski offseason at the gym doing a typical weight and cardio routine. The issue I had with my normal gym program was that it wasn’t getting me to where I wanted to be physically. The trainers at Athletic Republic pushed me and made me faster, stronger, and gave me more endurance. As a result, two weeks ago I skinned up to the top of Alta for the first time all season and I beat my best time up that hill by 10 minutes! I am pretty confident I wouldn’t have made it up so quickly without participating in the AR-FIT Challenge.

If you want to work on being fit at any age, I recommend AR-FIT. Their process of helping you improve your performance is different from other gyms. Results are what I get working out in their friendly and challenging atmosphere. After the AR-FIT 9-week Challenge, my strength had improved significantly. This translated into better performance at the Nordic ski camp I attended at the beginning of this season. Thanks to all of the coaches for their encouragement and support on my fitness journey!
