LIFT HEAVY + LIFT FAST EVENT ROCKS THE NIKKO PAVILION

Guam Fitness Competition held their LIFT HEAVY + LIFT FAST event at the Nikko Hotel Beach Pavilion Saturday morning as 50 competitors took on three different workouts to test their strength and endurance through workouts Grace, Isabelle and Max Lift Snatch – C&J.

Finishing on top was team Thick & Thin – who’s made up of power couple Kent Silva and Taylor Crisostomo who train at Unified Fitness. The duo accumulated 12 points, the lowest total through the three workouts to bring in a 2022 1st place finish.

“What a way to start the year! It was good to be challenged again and we had a great time competing. We enjoy finding new ways to test our fitness and always strive to improve ourselves,” said Kent Silva on taking the top spot.

The competitors left it all on the floor, but the comradery they shared was the highlight of the event.

“It was a great competition! We are always excited to be out there on the floor with such an amazing community. Seeing everyone come together to celebrate the success of others brings so much joy. Nothing can compare,” said Taylor Crisostomo.
