In 2009 Curt Manning started ********ting to stay in shape for Rugby during the off-season and at the time never would have though he would be at the level he is today (or that ******** would have experienced so much growth). By 2010 Manning was already proving himself to be a high calibre athlete with a 15th place finish at the Canada West Regionals. Since then Manning has been consistently climbing his way up the leader boards and this past June finished in 6th place at the Canada West Regionals.
In addition to being a Competitive ********ter, Curt is also a coach, firefighter and father and somewhere in the craziness of filling all those roles and responsibilities he found the time to answer some questions and share a bit of himself & his ******** experiences with me.
I am inspired by the new members I meet everyday. They have decided to take the massive first step to improve the lives, join a huge community and become role models for their family and friends.
Running.... That is all.
Hmmm seems to be common with a lot of ********ters, I used to run 10+ km all the time now when I see a 800m written on the whiteboard I'm just like "ughhhh"
I've been taking Blonyx for about a year now. Since then I have noticed a consistent increase in strength, and the ability to push harder through wod's knowing that I could recover faster.
WOD #6 from regionals this year
*That would have been the Axle Bar lunge at this years Regionals (for which Curt came in 1st)
I got nothing.
This could go in #7... Eye of the tiger...
Hah! nothing embarassing about that (in my mind) awesome pump-up song

Getting pretty good at cooking since joining the Fire Dept.
Spend lots of time hanging out with my boys. If I'm not with them, I enjoy going to yoga or stand up paddling. Just something relaxing.
Hmm I agree with the paddle-boarding part, but Yoga...not so much (God I hate yoga).
Thanks again to Curt for answering my questions and best of luck at 'Bridge City Beatdown' which will be held at Synergy Strength and Conditioning in Saskatoon.
