A Tough Mudder team from Kra-Z Fitness, a local fitness studio owned by Kristi Merten, competed and finished a rigorous 10-mile obstacle course while raising money the Wounded Warrior Project.

The event was held at the end of September in Diablo Grande new Patterson.

“Not everyone can finish an event like this,” Merten said. “We started training in January. I credit my Bootcamp and R.I.P.P.E.D. (Resistance, Intervals, Power, Plyometrics, Endurance and Diet) classes for getting us to the finish without any injury.”



Designed by British Armed Forces, Tough Mudder is considered the premier challenge series in the world. In just a few years, the event has raised over $3.5 million for the Wounded Warrior Project.
