HUGE congrats to coach @tarynemilyh who PR’d her clean and jerk at 83kg (183lbs) and went 6/6 on her lifts qualifying her for nationals in Olympic weightlifting!!!

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Christmas Party! You’re all awesome. Make sure you add #raincityXmas to your photos ( you can edit your caption in instagram:)  ) so everyone can check out the fun! Extra thank yous to everyone who brought delicious food and especially Tammi who put together the incredible Turkey (that disappeared in record time), as well as to those who came to help clean up (including #raincityjasper), and to Panda and Jules for helping setup all the awesome decorations!

Simon is the Head Coach and Owner of Raincity Athletics. “Discovering a new level of health has changed my life, not only in how I look feel and perform, but how I feel about myself both inside and out. I want to help as many people as I can discover their ‘athlete within’ no matter what level that may be, which is why I love our slogan: Find Your Fit. Our bodies are nicer than any car, house, or pet we’ll ever own, and yet we constantly abuse them like we can buy another one if it breaks. I strongly believe if we can maximize our physical health and performance it will have a positive affect on our lives in more ways than anyone can imagine.”
