Congrats to BJ & Amanda on their IUKL USA National Championship Performances in New York!
FTA has the Coaches with Experience:
BJ Bliffert (Owner & Founder of the NTXKB Club) & Amanda Wegner (Club Coach), traveled to the Big Apple last weekend to compete in the second annual IUKL USA National Championships.
Next time you see BJ, give him a pat on the back for bringing home the gold to FTA! BJ cranked out an impressive 60 repetitions with two 24-kilogram bells (that’s a total of 105.6 pounds!), which landed him a solid 1st place finish within the 78kg weight division for the long cycle event.
BJ's first place finish earned him an esteemed and hard-earned invitation to compete on Team USA in Germany at the 2014 World Championships in November! Way to REPRESENT, BJ!
Coach Amanda Wegner, now representing the Club overseas in Russia (!!), put forth a great effort as well! Amanda competed in the professional division at the competition and archived a score of 80 repetitions in the snatch event with a 24 kg bell!
