FIERCE FOR ATHELTES: Ultra Marathon Runner - David Trow
We know that a consistent Fierce45 practice gets us a good looking booty and strong abs, but this method goes beyond vanity and into strength + conditioning benefits for the most extreme athletes.
Meet David Trow. He is an avid Fierce45 participant and an ultra marathon runner prepping for one of the most challenging trail races in the world- the Ultra Trail Mont Blanc. This race is 100 miles that circumnavigates the Mont Blanc mountain pass through Switzerland, France, and Italy and only the most elite runners qualify to even stand at the starting line.

How long have you been coming to Fierce45? Two months so far!
What changes have you seen since starting?
I've seen noticeable strengthening in my core, hips, and legs. I’m not an overly muscular guy, but I can see a bit more definition in my upper body.
Why do you think this method is useful for athletes?
It is an incredible full body work out that is zero-impact - perfect for athletes whose primary focus may be high impact, such as running.
What’s your favorite thing about Fierce classes?
The instructors are amazing! The direction, the motivation, and results keep me going back week after week.
Tell us a fun fact!
In 2000 I went on the adventure of a lifetime, spending 75 days in the backcountry of Alaska. It was a three-leg-trip comprised of sea kayaking, backpacking, and mountaineering. It was one of the most memorable experiences of my life that allowed for a great deal of personal growth through the challenges and experiences of being in that landscape for 2 1/2 months.
WOW! Way to go, David! We will be sitting on our couch with a big bag of kale chips watching you compete in the UTMB in 2018. Keep up the good work!
