"The Natural Flying Squirrels" took the competition floor on Saturday at the 2016 Lifeworx Throwdown in San Jose, and did what they do best - kicked some ass, moved well, had a blast, and picked up various heavy things quickly. If they ever invented a Sinclair Total equivalent at fitness competitions then these three may have registered pretty high on the chart, as they accomplished some pretty cool stuff while most likely being the lightest/smallest team in the field. One highlight caught on video was Kate's finish on the clean/front squat ladder (175 lbs for 1 squat clean + 2 front squats)!
Thanks to all who made it out to cheer on our team, including Lindsay H, James, and Coach Cody. And a big thank you to Coach Sparkle for not only running "Camp Sparkle" at Arena Ready bright and early on Saturday morning, but then making her way down to the competition to make sure the team had everything they needed, and looked stylish while competitively exercising (which, let's be honest, is half the battle anyway).
Great work, Team! Next time around I vote for "Natural Squirrel Fighters" or maybe even "Squirrel Nut Zippers" as a team name. Just sayin'.
