Congratulations Jonathan Rodney and coach Anton Skripalev

Every day, here at Fortis Fitness our members and competitive athletes alike astound us with dramatic improvements and achievements – from world class Ultra Marathoners to the strength events and all sports in between.

21 year old Jonathan Rodney is just one of the latest.

Huge congratulations for his epic performance at his VERY FIRST power-lifting meet – “Fall at Forge”, in Toronto back on November 16, 2016.

At a body weight of 255 lbs. and competing as a Junior, Raw Classic, in this CPF event he achieved a 575 pound back squat, 365 pound bench, and 700 POUND DEAD-LIFT!  This kid has been training for only 18 months.

That is a 1638 total with a Wilks score of 431.  Good for 4 Raw, Junior CPF records.

Congratulations also to coach, Anton Skripalev (left) who came to us from Russia and trains Power and Olympic lifters and Arm Wrestlers and who shares in this awesome achievement.

AT FORTIS, IT’S A CHRISTMAS TRADITION!!!

…NOT all that sweet stuff and coffee…the fact that OUR MEMBERS WILL NO DOUBT SHOW UP ON CHRISTMAS AND EVERY OTHER DAY OF THE YEAR!  So…we put a few carbs and some coffee out for em on Christmas Day!

What was it that Mike Tyson always said?  Something like…”I don’t run at 4:00 am because I need to run at that time, I do it because I know my opponents won’t”

To all of our ferociously competitive members and those who just have to lift heavy things…regardless of religion, creed or ideology, we thank you all and wish you a Merry Christmas and fantastic and safe holiday.

Fortis Fitness, Merry Christmas, #Christmas Fortis Fitness, Merry Christmas, #Christmas

Congratulations Adam Takacs

Huge Congratulations to Fortis member and Canadian UItra-Marathon Champion, Adam Takacs on his recent race!

 

“I just wanted to share some of my recent success from the Pinhoti 100 mile race in Alabama. We ran from Heflin to Sylacauga through the Talladega National forest and traversed extremely technical terrain with some very fast runnable sections. Over the 100 miles we accumulated enough elevation gain that matched Mount Everest, and had a net loss of 500 feet which made the pounding on the quads extreme! I placed 2nd with a time of 18:48:49.

Thanks Fortis for contributing to my success!”
