Conviction Client of the Month – July 2016

Whoo Whooooo! Our July client of the month is one of a kind!

Matt Yarnton may just be the most supportive and encouraging person you’ll ever meet. When times get tough, we all count on Matt to brighten the mood and help get us through.

But there is so much more to Matt than just a wonderful smile and encouraging words.

Matt is one hell of an athlete.

Matt joined our Winter Warriors program last October as he wanted to take on a Spartan Race this year. He realized that if he wanted to succeed in reaching his goal he needed to start training right away. Not “sometime in the future” or “when the weather is nice”, but immediately.

Even though his work schedule had him out of town every second week, Matt committed and trained like an animal every chance he got. When he was away from Winter Warriors sessions, Matt was completing the training plan described in Predator.

He wanted to complete a Spartan Race and refused to let any obstacle stand in his way.

Fast forward 10 months….

Matt TrifectaAfter training through everything from freezing temperatures and blizzards to insane heat and thunderstorms, Matt is the definition of Spartan.

Not only has he destroyed his goal of completing a Spartan Race, but Matt is now a member of the coveted Trifecta Tribe – having completed a Spartan Race of each distance – Sprint, Super, and Beast, in one calendar year.

And sure, finishing all these races is a huge accomplishment, but there’s more to the story. Matt isn’t just finishing these races, he’s winning them.

As of right now, Matt Yarnton is the #9 ranked Competitive Spartan Racer in all of Canada…. and First Overall in his age group!

Matt’s hard work, dedication, and perseverance are all starting to pay off.

Matt has become an absolute beast and makes everyone around him better. There is no doubt in my mind that I am a better athlete, and person, from having trained alongside this man.

With a few more races to go this year, we are all very excited to see how far Matt can go.

Thanks for being you, Matt 🙂
