Squat by Southwest is back at Hyde Park Gym! Who will be king of the squats? In addition to being a great time, this year is extra special. This year's event is dedicated to fundraising to help our friend Stephen Moore who was injured by an uninsured motorist.
On Monday, February 8th, HPG Trainer and all-around great guy Stephen Moore was hit on his motorcycle by an innebriated, uninsured, and unlicensed individual, who ran but was later apprehended.
Unfortunately, Stephen had to have his right foot amputated.
Now, his gym family will be dedicating this year's "Squat By" to fundraising efforts to assist with Stephen's extensive medical bills.
Squat by Southwest, which will be held on March 12 at 5: 00 pm, will have cash prizes for the best Men, Women, and Masters (40+ year old) lifters. The cost is $25 to compete, and $10 to spectate (links coming soon with rules and details).
We will also be hosting a silent auction - so if you have a local business, please contact Kathryn or Jacob about donating!
Contest rules in a nutshell: 3 attempts at a 1 rep max raw squat. More details coming soon!
Squat by Southwest will be limited to 40 participants so email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to reserve your spot now!
