Kristen Fiola Organizes Spring Fling 5K Training Event


spring_fling_5k.jpgThe Spring  Fling 5K Event was a huge success! It was a 5 week walk/run training clinic culminating in a 5K fun run that took place on May 3rd. Both the training clinic and the 5K race took place at Minnechaug  Regional High School in Wilbraham, MA. Kristen Fiola, one of the physical therapists in our Farmington, CT clinic, ran the entire event. She had about 40 participants over the 5 weeks, including Lloyd Hamilton, an Exercise Technician at ProEx Farmington. ProEx staff provided free injury screens throughout the training clinic to all participants. On race day, ProEx staff provided runner support and post-race stretches (pictured here are Colleen Calvanese and Robert Huyler). Malissa Ochotnicky, a former ProEx Co-op student and certified massage therapist, provided post-race massage. And, ProEx is proud to announce that Lloyd finished 9th overall in his first ever 5K race! Congrats Lloyd!
