Demich Takes 2nd at 2020 MFC

The dust has now settled on the 2020 Masters Fitness Collective in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Masters athletes from all over the world converged on this one of a kind event to showcase their years and years of hard work and dedication. A masters athlete is a functional fitness competitor who is 35 years old or older. There are categories for men and women respectively with age groups that span 5 years each. Age groups at the 2020 MFC included 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64 and 65+.

Our very own Theresa Demich earned her way into the 60-64 year old division and left her mark on the weekend finishing in an outstanding 2nd place overall while racking up 4 first place event finishes. Competition in the functional fitness world rewards those who stay consistent. Theresa had a slow start and needed to finish strong in order to inch her way onto the podium. The weekend consisted of 10 events covering a broad range of skills and tasks. Theresa has never been one to back down from a challenge. Her positive mindset and ability to overcome obstacles paved the way for her strong finish.

Theresa is not one to brag so I will do it for her. The amount of hard work and dedication that Theresa has been putting in on a consistent basis for years is truly unique. Ive been a professional coach for 10 years and Ive never worked with a 60+ year old who out trains athletes 1/3 her age like Theresa. To say she is an inspiration for all ages is an understatement. It has truly been a pleasure being a stepping stone on Theresa’s journey and we are looking forward to taking on the next challenge!

Congrats again to Theresa for taking home 2nd at the 2020 Masters Fitness Collective!
