GPRC Wolves Athletes of the Week: October 1, 2018

GPRC Wolves Athletes of the Week: October 1, 2018

Each week, two GPRC Wolves athletes are selected for their achievements over the weekend on the field, track, or court. We are pleased to congratulate Erin Grier and Miguel Macedo from Wolves Cross Country Running as our current Athletes of the Week!

Erin Grier
1st Year Personal Trainer
Duchess Park Senior Secondary
Grande Prairie, AB

Erin Grier returns to school this season and embarks on a new challenge: XC Running. This Mother-of-Four/Ultra Marathoning/Wolves Athlete, Erin has competed in a number of half marathon, marathon, and ultra marathon races in the past few years, but the 6 km ACAC XC distance is uncharted territory for her.  Grier looks forward to learning the ins and outs of “short distance” racing with the help of her younger Wolves teammates.

 

Miguel Macedo
1st year B Comm Transfer
Spirit River Regional Academy
Rycroft, AB

Miguel Macedo enters his rookie year as one of the top runners on the Wolves men’s team.  In his Grade 12 year, Miguel placed 3rd in the ASAA NW Zone XC Running Championships and 8th in the 1500m at the ASAA High School Provincials.  Miguel credits his teammate and fellow SRRA graduate Eric Nooy for pushing him in races and practice and making him a better runner and better person.

 

Congratulations Erin and Miguel!

Terrence, the student responsible for this week’s WOW, has created a program tailored for advanced lifters. Terrence emphasizes the importance of rest when training for strength and hypertrophy which is why his WOW consists of a 4-day upper, lower split.

This WOW, and others like it exist to make your gym experience more interesting, as well as provide you with guidance and exciting new fitness routines.

“I feel that there are so many life lessons that can be gained at the gym. One major life lesson the gym has taught me is that hard work pays off, this has helped me to achieve many things in and out of the gym such as a good work ethic and not allowing anything get in my way of achieving my personal goals.” – Terrence Wold

“My focus is on health and wellness in all aspects of life. Through a positive and compassionate approach, I believe that physical training can benefit everyone, regardless of limitations.”

Some reminders from this week’s creator:

Remember to breathe. Breathe out on the exertion, if you’re squatting, breathe in as you lower to the ground and breathe out as you force the weight back up.

Be courteous. Everyone is here to work on themselves. Only weak people try to verbally knock down others because of their own insecurities.

This week’s workout is brought to you by Lisa Ouellet, a second-year student in the Personal Training Program here at GPRC.

“I believe that it is never too late to discover fitness and create your own best self. I myself found fitness later in life and know first hand what it can do for you physically and emotionally.  I also know how difficult it can be to learn how to put yourself first.”- Lisa Ouellet.
