ProEx Provides PT Services at Farmington Fitathlon

A  Fitathlon is a fitness challenge that tests your strength, endurance, athleticism and mental toughness. Fitathlon’s challenges have 15-20 obstacles that take place over a 5k or 10k distance. The obstacles include, but are not limited to, transverse walls, 5 foot walls, cargo nets, tire flips, calisthenics and many more!

There are four categories in a Fitathlon: Newbie, Beginner, Challenger and Competitor.  Beginners, who are looking to have fun and enjoy the obstacles compete with, but not against, serious athletes looking to capture the purse. It doesn’t matter what your level is, you’re bound to have a great experience and be challenged like never before.

The ProEx tent kept busy! Participants were given the option to have a physical therapist provide a manual stretch before and after the event. ProEx PT's were also on hand to evaluate injured athletes and offer treatment options for their injury.

A portion of the proceeds from this event was donated to a local charity.
