May the DURAFORCE be with you

I joined DURAPULSE Performance Company AKA “the Academy” June 2010 with the goals of becoming more competitive as a triathlete. I have progressively moved up the ranks, beginning as a young Jedi initiate.

Jedi order from lowest to highest ranks:

1) Youngling: Course clutter.

2) Padawan : Athletes who go through rigorous training by the Jedi master including VO2 max tests,  bike time trials, setting up heart rate zones, and going on structured training program.  As a rite of passage and the final test before the trials to Jedi knighthood, padawans must learn to win and crush dreams of their opposition.

A current Padawan in Academy:

3) Jedi Knight: Jedis must pass the five tests to become knights: 1) The bike time trial, 2) the trial of courage, 3) the trial of spirit, the 4) trial of knowledge, and 5)  winning

4) Master Jedi: The cream of the crop.  Kona qualifiers.

Grand Master Jedi: Master Nick.

Our unofficial team motto:

For my ally is the Force. And a powerful ally it is. Durapulse training creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us… and binds us. Aerobic beings are we! You must feel the Force around you. Here, between you, the swim, the bike, the run… everywhere! Even between the you and the Big Island.”

Good luck to Nick, Karleen, and Teri in Kona Saturday… May the DURAFORCE be with you.
