With COVID restrictions, our main focus has been keeping our GEA family safe while training. As the winter months closed in, it was evident that to continue our winter training program, we were going to need somewhere that was warm and dry while not extending our bubble. It was at this time that Mark and Jenn McClure offered the use of their gym facility to our athletes exclusively. This generous offer was gladly accepted and GEA would like to thank both Mark and Jenn for their support of our club.
I would enourage all our GEA families who are looking for a locally owned, small and friendly gym to check them out by clicking on the Athlete's Arena image above.
