Working hard to make it happen 🍁 #2017

A post shared by Charity Williams, OLY (@charitywilliamss) on

It takes a lot of hard work and repetitions, repetitions, repetitions.

Pascal Plamondon – Weightlifting

Safe to assume that weightlifter Pascal, is out-lifting most of the athletes in this post.

 Jamie Macdonald – Speed Skating – Short Track

Sometimes, just having a friend or teammate there to cheer you on can help you achieve that one extra rep.

Tim Nedow – Athletics – Shot Put

Tim Nedow is off to a great start.

Josée Bélanger – Football (Soccer)

Josée makes light work of 195lbs, after the holiday break.

Liz Gleadle – Athletics – Javelin

No stranger to lifting, Liz is constantly posting videos to keep us inspired.

Marielle Thompson – Alpine Skiing – Ski Cross

Marielle slows it down for us as she gets some big lifts in before race season.

Jen Kish – Rugby

Captain Kish is so dedicated to the lift life, she’s built her own home platform!
