The eight-station course consisted of ten repetitions of each of the following: sled rope pulls, sled push, power ropes, burpees, medicine ball wall bounce, resistance rope curl, ladder crawl, sit ups and kettle bell.





“I think it was a great challenge,” said EPCC student Michael Robinson, who participated in the challenge.

First semester student and cross-country student-athlete Antionette Carter earned first place for female participants.


She completed the course in two-minutes and 38-seconds, which was a better time than most of the male participants.

Daniela Hernandez finished second in female category with a time of four-minutes and 50-seconds.  

Alec Lozano placed first in the male category that consisted of 48 contestants. Lozano’s time was two-minutes and eight-seconds.  

Lozano graduated from Riverside High School in May, and works out about two hours a day. He is majoring in Kinesiology, and lives by the phrase, “Aspire to inspire before you expire.” 

Bryan Gonzales finished second in the male category with a time of two-minutes and 11-seconds.

There were five awards given to the top two male and female participants, and one additional award was given to Luis Tovar, who had a time of two-minutes and 13-seconds.

The awards were ten-day passes to Sun City Strong Gym, and all participants received free Gatorade and bottled water.
