2019 Hudson Valley Open – History in the Making

The first Hudson Valley Open was a resounding success.  68 lifters participated.  Here’s a quote from the Compsec report:

“The event ran very close to the published final schedule.  The environmental conditions on competition day were difficult, but manageable, due to the ongoing heat wave in the northeast. The organizers did an outstanding job of providing abundant hydration in the form of water and electrolytic beverages, free of charge, to all athletes, volunteers and officials.

The facility was well maintained throughout the entire event. Hospitality was available to all officials and volunteers free of charge and the food offerings were outstanding. The platform was well constructed and held up flawlessly for the entire event.  A number of high-volume fans, strategically placed within the venue provided cooling air flow.”

NY Weightlifting Academy showed up in force and won both the Men’s & Women’s team trophies.  The official meet results are here.

Outstanding Masters Female:
1st  Roberta Mulder

2019 Hudson Valley Open – Registrations Closed!

We’re happy to report a spectacular showing for this inaugural competition.  Registrations are now closed.

Thank you for taking part in this historic competition – the first of many more!  We are fortunate to have many technical officials from local through international level.  We are looking to make this first competition a memorable and fun one.
This is a packed event so please look for your name in the start list with the official weigh in and lift times. Please note, a few lifters were moved up to an earlier session to accommodate the overall number of lifters.  We’re aiming to make things go as smoothly as possible.
Due to the large volume of expected lifters and supporters, we have secured additional parking about 200 meters up the road  – Herring Road is a private road and they are supporting this us by providing this access.  Please park there if necessary, just do not block the gravel or paved roads.
See you soon.

Change isn’t always bad

We have loved our home at Shelly’s Xtreme Fitness.  Unfortunately, they were forced to close.  While they re-group, our team has found a new place train – Huge thanks to Mandy & family.  We also welcome Mandy to the team!

Our Cuppa Joe singlets are in! Four of our team members will be trying them out at their first meet @ Lost Battalion Hall!

At times of extreme change, it is up to you to decide how to react.  You can let it beat you down, or you can dust yourself off and find another way.  If success was easy, everyone would be successful.  It also wouldn’t be so meaningful.  When you work hard at something and are really challenged, success tastes so much sweeter.

Train hard, train smart.
