Primal Personal Training recently opened its brand new, state-of-the-art workout/training facility and had huge plans for a grand opening party, however, once they found out a good friend and member of the gym received some terrible news, they knew they needed to shift the focus of the party to a competition/fundraiser directly benefiting Noah and all children currently undergoing treatment in the local children’s hospital.
One loyal member of the gym received the devastating news that his nephew, Noah Lamb, 10, was diagnosed with stage 3A Hodgkins Lymphoma and all proceeds from the event will directly towards Noah’s medical expenses. Hodgkins Lymphoma most commonly knows as Hodgkins disease is a cancer of the lymphatic system and as it progresses it compromises your body’s ability to fight infection.
“My friend Steve knew we had quite the following online and was hoping to get some support from Noah,” said David Gentile, owner of Primal PT. “I sent him an email later that day telling him that I had an idea that I thought could help a lot more, since he had just been getting a few donations, and that’s what started Lifting Spirits.”
The competition will be a strength and conditioning competition as well as a casual style weightlifting session and competition attendees are sure to be wowed by all that the new location has to offer. “It’s a much bigger location, three times to be exact. We also combined with Uproar weightlifting so we can provide a technically sound Olympic lifting class with professional instructors,” said Gentile. “Other than the new looks and the larger space and more equipment, Primal is still very much the same, hard work, lots of sweat and a supportive atmosphere.
