This month, we’re starting a new monthly feature highlighting the athletic and fitness accomplishments of some of our clients. While this is in no way comprehensive, we’re proud of everyone who is a part of our gym and want to recognize their successes. If we left something out, let us know!!!
Tom Koehler (Marlins) Since the All-Star break, Tom has boasted a 1.93 ERA with only 2 BB in 18.2 IP. On a personal note, Tom and wife Ashley had their first baby girl!! Riley was born on July 3rd! Dan Jennings(Marlins), who himself became a dad in the offseason, has gone 6 straight appearances without allowing an ER, improving his already impressive season ERA to 1.05.
Meanwhile, over in Japan, Brad Eldred (Hiroshima Carp) won the Japan All-Star Game MVP and Home Run Derby. Brad leads the league in HR’s with a whopping 33 in 91 games! In related Brad news, Brad Hand (Marlins) contributed his best month of the season with a 2.70 ERA.
Doug Bernier (Rochester Red Wings) Doug racked up 30 hits in the month of July on the way to a .297 BA. Expect to see Doug back with up with the Twins when rosters expand!

Roberto Rodriguez III (Palm Beach Lakes) officially committed and signed with the University of Texas Permian Basin.

Lawson Aschenbach Swept the weekend at the Mid-Ohio Pirelli World Challenge, and continues to give the best interviews of any driver out there.
Neil Lockie added another line to his already impressive resume by starring in a commercial for Titleist. Neil’s legendary style and authentic Scottish accent will surely lead to the best quarter in the history of Titleist golf ball sales. http://www.titleist.com/videos/?v=lueTZhbzrhspsBl8uImNp4KrMO5kJwc9
Brandon Smith competed in the Stuart Classic a few weeks ago located at The Champions Club. Brandon birdied the last 5 holes in route to yet another victory this year. This marks his 26th victory on the Golfslinger.com Tour.
Proud new dad Richard Terga competed in the 3rd annual Boca Classic a few weeks ago. Terga birdied 3 out of the 4 par 5’s in route to a 6 under 66 in the final round to win the 3rd annual Boca Classic. Richard and his wife Sarah had their first daughter last month, and the lack of sleep clearly hasn’t affected his game!
Lefty Matt Dunn took home a victory in a Canadian PGA event, details are still fuzzy as our friends to the North aren’t quite as quick to update their online tournament information.
A special congratulations goes out to our college-bound athletes off to their first year on campus this month. Riley Burke will play basketball at Columbia, Juliana Rubin is off to protect the net of the Baldwin-Wallace soccer team, Jack Wilson heads to the Bowdoin gridiron, and Tristan McGinnis will be a member of the Concord baseball program. All of our athletes have put in a lot of hard work this summer which is sure to pay off on the field and in the classroom.
