Next week, we will be informing you on the pull-up challenge we are holding. Since many of your #IWillChallenge’s are regarding pull-ups, the pull-up challenge will be meant to help support one another and practice together the first 30 minutes of the open gym’s on Sunday’s. We want to encourage everyone to take advantage of open gym and achieve your goals!

Happy Thursday Valkyries!

Last weekend was all about GORUCK and there is great news to share regarding our members and their accomplishments.

Congratulations to Sara Hilton for completing all three GORUCK events! In addition, she was awarded Cadre Cleve’s special patch for completing three Tough Challenges (see photo below).

Whoop, Whoop!

Congratulations to Matt Hilton for completing the Light Challenge and Scavenger Hunt.

Another whoop whoop!

The duo are no strangers to participating in GORUCK. They have done so in the past and through doing the events, their love for GORUCK grew.  They loved it so much they were inspired to organize their own rucks.

About a year and a half ago, Sara and Matt started doing rucks of their own and welcomed all to join them.  In their own way, they wanted to do their own rucks to continue to spread GORUCK’s focus on teamwork and camaraderie.

The GORUCK challenges are not easy but Sara and Matt showed that it can be conquered when great supporters are right there along for the journey.  There were several other Valkyrie members who did GORUCK for the first time and rocked it.  Congratulations to Erin Dominici, Ariana Gailie, Adrian Bonvento, Yassell Bravo, Julissa Cabrera and Renee Patterson!

There are future GORUCK events coming up so everyone save the dates:
The Tough Challenge: Friday, June 16, 2017 at 9pm
The Light Challenge: Saturday, June 17, 2017 at 2pm
The Tough Challenge (1st Annual Operation Redwings): Friday, June 23, 2017 at 9pm

While June is some time away, no need to wait until then to GORUCK. There are plenty of events happening soon that Valkyries will be participating in.

Our members had a great time at the three GORUCK events and congratulations once again on everyone’s accomplishments.

Until next time, happy GORUCKing!

If you Valkyries haven’t already started to take notice, your team has been working hard to enhance our social media presence. After recently starting our blog back up, we then took it into our hands to make our website more user friendly.

As many of you know, we have a strong partnership with GoRuck, a challenge based on Special Forces Training where your team is led from start to finish by a Special Forces Cadre who pushes to test your mental and physical limits.GoRuck

At the top of our improved webpage in the moving slides, you will see a GoRuck section where you can press the “click here to learn more” button and find videos, links, and even discount codes for GoRuck purchases!

Reminder: We are still giving discounts for “Go refer a friend” under the community tab so let’s bring in some new members!
