Oceans of Hope

We had a great time in New Smyrna Beach at the Oceans of Hope Adaptive Surfing Day! Thanks to everyone that got out there to catch some waves and try something new, and to all of the volunteers. 

Couldn’t make it to the most recent event? Don’t worry, there’s still another chance to try it out on August 20th! Check out Oceans of Hope’s website for more details.

Survival of the FITest

CORE FIT hosted the Survival of the FITest competition in mid-July, and the CORE FIT athletes put themselves to the test in three trials of strength, endurance, and speed at the Spectrum Performance and Physical Therapy gym. Each and every one of them pushed themselves to be their very best, but only one man and woman could be the champions. Congratulations to this year’s top competitors!
