Burning Tenacity - Ben Chavarie - email@example.com
Ben is originally from New Brunswick, Canada, lived in British Columbia & Alberta for 10 years working in the Oil & Gas industry as a Journeyman Pipefitter before moving to Massachusetts to be with his wife Pamela. He recently graduated from MCC with an Engineering Technology CAD degree and works as a Project Manager. He's the founder of Burning Tenacity, a Swole-catholic outpost, focused on building a healthy community and helping people grow closer to Christ through physical fitness. He is a catholic revert who came back to the church by way of physical fitness and saw a true potential for evangelizing his brothers and sisters who share the same passions as he does. His mission is to help them come back (or come for the first time) and help them grow a stronger relationship with God.
Ben's favorite fitness activities are mountain hiking, weight lifting and OCR's. When they aren’t hiking mountains or hitting the gym, Ben & Pam are heavily involved in their parish community at Saint Francis of Assisi as youth and young adult ministers helping young people grow closer to Christ.

Sacred Hearts Outpost - Zach and Sonia Summers - firstname.lastname@example.org
We are a Catholic family of four out of the Heart of Dixie. Sonia, a painter and climber. Zach, an endurance runner (anything from 5ks to marathons).
Our goal is to be a living witness of the theology espoused by so many of the saints: to make our bodies a temple and the importance of the virtue of excellence in physical improvement. Our outpost is enthroned to the Sacred Hearts to express the unapologetic conviction of our faith.
We look forward to finding more of the faithful around us. If you're in the Knoxville area, please join us! Verso l'alto!”

Andrew Fallon - email@example.com
My name is Andrew Fallon and I am the creator and founder of Sasquatch Fitness. I work with some close friends to provide true fitness information to the public. I got tired of hearing all the lies that people were sending to the fitness world and wanted to put an end to it. I graduated with a kinesiology major at DePauw University and now pursuing a Masters In Indianapolis — working to be a strength and conditioning coach to make athletes the best athletes they can be. Along with fitness my Catholic faith is very important to me. I try to give glory to God in everything I do whether it be my school, work, or my lifting.
All Glory to God!

Danielle is a married cradle Catholic, dog shower, and wannabe runner. Born and raised in Colorado, now currently living in Fargo, North Dakota and enjoying as much of the cold as possible. During her workouts you may hear a bunch of "oofda" but also a lot of self motivation and Hail Mary's to get through the next rep. Most of the time her workouts include cardio, stretching and Pilates. On a personal level, Danielle continues to feel passionate about her Catholic Faith and each day tries to gain a little more knowledge of her faith, while also balancing life being social with finding the local fun spots, or attending country bars or concerts to do Country 2-step with her husband or taking her Welsh terrier to agility class or a long afternoon at the dog park
