Eric Kapitulik, the founder and CEO of The Program, said that he was extremely impressed with the team's leadership, teamwork and tenacity throughout the whole day. Although there were SEVERAL girls he was impressed with, he was most intrigued by Anna and Marissa's ability to take his teachings and apply them in such a short period of time.
Anna lead the team in jumping-jacks; while she was supposed to finish the quarter with a set of 6, she went to 7...replying to Eric's questioning with "We need to do 'One More'". "One More" is The Program's trade marked phrase, to emphasize the importance of pushing yourself to the limit everyday to get better. While doing the log and sand bag quarter, Marissa was quick to realize that each team needed to line up in ascending height order. Eric later told us it sometimes takes military teams up to 3 months to understand this concept. Way to go girls!!
Overall, it was a great experience and we all enjoyed a nice team dinner at Posto 22 afterwards. We want to thank everyone from The Program for coming and helping our team. We look forward to seeing how this will help us in the future...Let the season begin!!
