It's been an awesome week at the gym and I have met some really cool new people (now gym members) who have recently joined our community here in Crested Butte. It's such a treat to hear other peoples stories and how they came to arrive in CB. I feel fortunate to meet those who share my appreciation for the quaint charm of this town and it's uniqueness from other mountain towns in Colorado.
ONE IN PARTICULAR
Normally I would not single out one of our members, but this is a special occasion and I am excited to share that this week Cooper Ott joined CB South Fitness! Cooper is not just your average Michigan-girl-turned-CB-local. Cooper races professional women's enduro mountain biking all over the U.S.! Her race resume is unreal and her enthusiasm for life is inspiring. Cooper is committed to staying fit and strong year round so that she can gain a competitive advantage next year when she races.
IT GETS BETTER
Cooper has agreed to write the occasional blog about racing enduro, skiing, and how strength training will be an important benefactor to her performance on the trails. We could not be more excited about the progression of Cooper's weight/strength training journey. And she's stocked to try out the Peloton bike as well!
