Holy May! In between all the rain, May was an incredible month as it was Rocky training camp time! Rocky is a fun team approach to boot camp which always brings great camaraderie, and of course, great results.
Physical testing this month was a combination of individual improvement, focusing on rocky abs and a challenging chin up hold, as well as a team component (for our grays woods group) working with a team relay.
More riders on Route 66!
Give it up for Jen J who jumped on Route 66 as well as Jamie T who did it all the way from Nashville! Congrats to both on achieving a great and challenging milestone!

Physical Testing Accomplishments
Since May was a time for Rocky, we are going to focus on team accomplishments. As a recap, the physical testing for this month was a maxing out of rocky abs, a chin up challenge to see how long you could hold your head above the bar, and for those at the Grays Woods location, an intense team running relay.
-Team Gray (Abbey C, Jen J, Lori S, Nicole H and Michelle P), improved their chin up time by an astounding 171%! With most team members doubling, if not tripling their times!
-Team Blue (Michael C, Angie R, Aliyah S, and Marcy M) improved their chin up time by an impressive 64%!
-Team Infinity Stones (Ray L, Katie B, Chris L, and Kiersten G) channeled their inner Rocky by improving on their rocky abs by 91%!
-Team Black improved their running relay time by 1 minute and 11 seconds!

April was a great month for Fitness Inspirers! There were a few things we did that were out of our normal routine (Hill on a Tuesday?!?), but what wasn't out of the norm were the great results!
This month we really amped up our physical testing with cardio and pull-up challenges, and persevered and loved workouts that made us a good kind of sore :). April is a great month to propel us further in to spring (even if it's a little later in State College), and the workouts have got us energized to embrace the beautiful weather.
Getting on Route 66

Physical Testing Accomplishments
This month we focused on improving our cardio with an intense 10 minute run and our 611'ers took on the additional challenge of seeing how many pull-ups they could do. It's amazing to see what can be accomplished in one short month! Here are a few quick accomplishments:
-Marcy pushed through her run, adding an additional lap to her total
-Karen improved her cardio by doing an impressive 3 additional laps!
-Michael crushed 2 pull-ups in post testing
-Ray improved by one pull-up, almost doing 4
-Suzy improved by 2 pull-ups increasing her total to just under 5!
