Alicia Weber winning her first her gold medal in the 500m in the morning of February 13th. Then, she won her second gold gold medal in the the evening in the 2,000 meter.
Nearly 1,600 indoor rowers competed on the Concept 2 rowing machines at the 2016 33rd Annual Southern Sprints Indoor Rowing Championships/World Qualifier in Melbourne, Florida, on February 13. A rare breed of athletes are drawn to the sport for the thrills of intense speed and power.

There are two different weight classes, lightweight and heavyweight. The maximum weight for a lightweight male is 165 pounds. The max weight for lightweight females is 135 pounds.

I am a lightweight indoor rower. Heavyweight indoor rower from Central Florida, Jennifer Gillette, and I both won the college/open women 500 meter and 2,000 meter events for our weight class. We both performed the rare feat of becoming double gold medalists at these championships.

In the past five years, we have been the only two women in the world that have both been world ranked top 10 three times for our 500 meter race times.

At this championship, Gillette set the American record for the 19-29 age category for heavyweight women with her 500 meter time of 1:30.7. Both of us continue to get faster as we get older. I have competed in this championship for five years, and it has been my goal to win gold. I won many silver and bronze medals, but I was working toward the elusive gold.

Alicia Weber is  a sponsored athlete and professional coach in many sports for all ages and ability levels.

It is a dream come true to become a double gold medalist with new personal best times of 1:45.8 for 500 meters and 8:09.4 for 2,000 meters. I became an indoor rower to continue to increase my VO2max, as rowing is considered to be one of the best exercises to increase aerobic capacity.

Gillette is in fighter pilot school at Sheppard AFB, Texas. Only two percent of Air Force fighter pilots are women. Rowing has been excellent conditioning for her to prepare for the G-Forces of flying F 16s.

Dedicated ninth grade rower Robert Delgado-Mendez competed in the 500m to get in shape for rowing on the water. He has competed in Clermont’s Regattas and loves them.

“Rowing is fun with a completely different crowd of people. In individual sports and team sports like soccer and football, you can mess up and still be successful. However, rowing on the water in an 8 boat has to have everyone perfectly in sync or it all goes bad. My coach says you are only as fast as your slowest rower,” explained Delgado-Mendez.

In the water, rowers with height and strength have an advantage. A lightweight rowing team might beat a heavyweight rowing team. A heavyweight team creates more drag in the water, which can slow them down. Strength will be necessary to overpower the drag and beat lightweights.

Indoor rowing on Concept 2 machines provides other challenges. A heavyweight rower will create more power from their weight and go faster. A short lightweight will need to produce power through their legs and arms to be able to beat a strong, tall lightweight who will have greater power through their long legs. In any event, indoor rowing provides excellent fitness benefits and strategic competitions.

Alicia Weber Trainee Ab Curl Up Progressions

By: Weber Way to Wellness Reporter

The Ab Curl Up is a famous test among trainees of Alicia Weber. The exercise tests abdominal strength and endurance and unlike the sit-up and other ab exercises, it is safe on the back. Even those with different conditions can normally perform the exercise well. Weber has set up many physical fitness challenges throughout the years and this has always ranked as the # 1 favorite.

Weber exclaimed, “Once my trainees hear about this ‘client record’ they all want it! The first woman who set it in 2007 had many challengers, but no one broke it until Dennis K. came along and then trainees started re-setting it left and right.”

There has been a story with each person who set this record. Each person had different motivations in wanting to break this record.

Here is the ‘client record’ for the Ab Curl Up Progression in the 1 – minute test for most correct reps:

2014 Bonnie Jean 106 reps
(This was her retirement record after working 32 years!)

2013 Lisa 105 reps
(She set this after only 6-weeks of fitness training!)

2012 Ron the Retiree 85 reps

2012 Bonnie Jean 83 Reps
(She set the World Record for women over age 60 in the most consecutive knee tucks this year!)

2011 Ron the Retiree 80 reps

2011 Bonnie Jean 79 reps

2011 Ron the Retiree 77 reps

2011 Bonnie Jean 73 reps

2011 Ron the Retiree 71 reps
(Retired Cop still pushing his limits!)

2011 Dennis K. 69 reps
(Alicia’s first trainee to break this record in 4 years! Record set in front of a crowd at The 13 Week Fitness Makeover!)

2007 Retired Female Cop 68 reps
(She is the only person male or female to complete Alicia’s hardest 5-areas of fitness challenge test and she had highest score!)

The ab curl up keeps the lower back on the ground at all times with the arms and hands held straight out. 2 pieces of tape are set on the ground. One where arms and hands are stretched out. Then, a second piece of tape is placed where the maximum reach is achieved, while keeping arms straight and low back on the ground.

Form for Ab Curl Test

Start and Finish Position for Ab Curl Up Test

Must reach 2nd piece of tape and return to start position for a rep.

Alicia Weber’s Runner Turns Tough Time into Triumphant Time!

By: Weber Way To Wellness Reporter

WINTER GARDEN, FL—Thirteen year old Ashley made a lot of positive strides in the 2013-2014 Cross Country/Track Season. She was part of the track team, which made school history with the greatest participation in the Championship meets to date.

Ashley is a determined 13 yr old runner who knows that tough times never last, but tough people do!
Determined and passionate about running, she kept positive even though certain days she would have constant and severe leg pain. She would wear a knee brace most of the time. She sought help from doctors, but her problem was not getting resolved.

She never gave up. Quitting was not an option.

Ashley began a new training program this summer under the tutelage of Alicia Weber and she has dropped three minutes off her 5k road race time. More importantly, she is running pain-free.

Ashley said, “Even doing an 800m in track I was in a lot of pain. My best was 3:12. Now, I am running 3 miles at a time and I am totally pain-free.”

Ashley is very excited about the upcoming cross country season. She has been training throughout the summer with a number of races under her belt and new confidence.

On July 4, 2014, Ashley, competed in Track Shack’s Watermelon 5k where she dropped three minutes and ran the 5k in 29:38.

Ashley exclaimed, “I feel really good. My pain is totally gone.”

Ashley will be attending the “Become the Best You Can Be” Running Camp with Alicia Weber July 28-30. She is overjoyed to know she can really focus on becoming the best she can be.

Ashley has advice for others going through pain who may feel like giving up in their sport.

Ashley said, “Don’t give up. If you give up, then you would never know what you could do. You need to keep seeking help to resolve the issue and you will get better and back into the game.”

Ashley exemplifies determination, positive attitude, and staying power, which are qualities of true champions!

Amazon Monster Muscle Woman Summer 2014 Feats of Strength

By: Weber Way to Wellness Reporter

Look out it is a bird, a plane. No, it is the Amazon Monster Muscle Woman soaring to new heights in strength and endurance. From galloping on thick sand to a mind-blowing 3 minute leading victory to performing 1,000 consecutive chest-touching-floor pushups in under 47 minutes – this muscle woman has had a busy summer with physical fitness challenges. Below are some featured fitness endeavors this monster muscle woman has been attacking this summer.

On July, 4, 2014, the Monster Muscle Woman celebrated Independence Day by completing 1,000 consecutive chest-touching-floor pushups for a fastest time. She talks about the proper form for the feat in the first 1:20. Then, she goes non-stop for just under 47 minutes for 1,000 reps.

Muscle Woman’s 1,000 Consecutive Chest-Touching-Floor Pushups

As if shooting for 1,000 consecutive pushups was not enough on the July 4 weekend….The Muscle Monster attacked a new mark in the 30 minute flexed hang knee to elbow raise on July 3. Going 101 reps over the current world record set more than one year ago. In this exercise, a 90 degree flexed hang (palm away grip) must be maintained as legs starting in dead hang come up to where the bent knees touch the bent elbows and then go back to dead hanging legs for a rep to count.

Muscle Woman’s 30 minutes of 90 degree Elbow to Knee Raises

On June 21, 2014, the Monster Muscle Woman went flying off the starting line and into a gallop up and down thick sand on hills measuring a couple hundred meters in length. This was a race on an old beaten clay trail in Florida out in the middle of nowhere in the hottest part of the day @ 1:30 pm. She finished first place overall out of the men and women in a time of 20:36. She was three minutes ahead of 2nd place in this challenging 5k. This was the Muscle Woman’s 88th Career Victory on the first day of summer 2014! The top 5 finishers overall got an award glass.

Archery and Exercise Go Hand In Hand in Clermont Florida

By: Weber Way to Wellness Reporter

Alicia Weber, World’s Most Prolific Female Record Setter, expanded her sporting interests in 2013. She added archery to her list of 16 sports and she developed a new record category.

She trained her first trainee for four months to set the first ever Obstacle Archery World Record in July of 2013.

Then, Weber trained for her own Archery Obstacle records where most records are set at 40 yards distance for archery with standard targets. The record begins with a strict form exercise for fastest time or an exercise to be performed for most reps in a time frame. Immediately after the exercise, the archery takes place with the 3 best arrows out of five possible shots counting for score. The exercise and archery score are combined together for a final score.

Weber is the third athlete to set an archery record at Recordsetter and only the second athlete to set an Obstacle Archery record at Recordsetter. Doug Mcmanaman was the first to bring archery to Recordsetter with his backward archery with a crossbow, which landed him in Top 10 list of Popular Records for 2012.

Alicia Weber set her first ever Obstacle Archery World Record on October 17, 2013 in Clermont, Florida, in 100ft Rope Climb 40 Yd Archery Obstacle for Lowest Score.

Alicia set her second and third world records on October 22, 2013 in 50ft Rope Climb 40 Yd Archery Obstacle for Lowest Score and highest score for most strict pull-ups with 40yd Archery. Alicia then broke this record along with three others on May 1, 2014.

Motivational Message with the World’s Oldest Person in AKC Dog Shows Turned 100m Sprinter

Cherie Oney wins her first Track Race ever in the 100m for females 80-84 and she qualifies for the Florida Senior Games.
By: Weber Way to Wellness Reporter

ST. CLOUD, FL, October 13, 2012 —Today was no ordinary track meet at the State Games Qualifier at St. Cloud High School in St. Cloud, Florida. Flying down the track with a roaring crowd, the oldest female racer, Cherie Oney made her memorable mark winning the 100m dash for the 80-84 age group and advancing to the Florida Senior Games Championship in December 2012. This is so special because this is Cherie’s FIRST track race in her life and she decided to give track a shot one month ago after completing her season in AKC Dog Shows. Cherie says, “Age is just a number — follow your dreams!”

Cherie at 81 Competing in First Track Race, Winning, and Qualifying for Championship!

One year ago, Cherie could have thrown in the towel due to health problems and pain, which kept her from walking let alone running. The pain almost kept her from her life long passion – competing in Dog Shows until she met Alicia in October 2011 where she found relief, rejuvenation, recovery, and the ability to win through Alicia’s Wellness Program. Cherie says, “Motion is Lotion.” Cherie’s keys to success are weekly workouts followed by massage therapy with Alicia Weber.

In no time, Cherie was back on her feet and ready to go. Two weeks after first working in Alicia’s Wellness Program, Cherie and her Saluki Angel were back in the ring and won “Best Breed Award” at a 4 day Dog Show back in October 2011.

The successes kept escalating as her pain dwindled away.

On December 16, 2011, Cherie and her Saluki Angel earned the AKC Championship, which allows them to compete in the Special with other Championship dogs. In February 2012, Cherie and Angel competed in their first Special with other Champions where Angel won “Best of Opposite Sex” award. Cherie and Angel continued to compete in the highest level of competition and on May 13, 2012, Cherie Oney with her dog Angel set the official world record where Cherie became Oldest Person to Exhibit Their Dog at an American Kennel Club Dog Show (where you have to run with your dog) at the age of 81.

Cherie’s strength and endurance sprouted and she participated in the 2012 Recordsetter World Record Physical Fitness Day held on April 28, 2012, in Clermont, Florida, where she set a leg strength world record. A month later she broke her own world record.

Cherie exclaimed, “When you reach my age you want to celebrate! Picking up a new sport – running track is how I celebrate! Challenges rule and I am in my 2nd childhood and loving it!”

Watch Cherie Win her First Ever Track Race Followed by an Interview — Three Minutes of Motivation!!

Alicia commented, “Cherie has the positive mindset and spirit all seniors should embrace. She shows there are no excuses to not do things because of age. She inspires many people young and old alike!”

In a matter of one month of track training and another month of strength conditioning, Cherie dropped 8 seconds off her 100m time and clocked a personal best of 38.28 seconds in her first ever track race.

Alicia said, “She executed the race perfectly and exceeded the goal. Cherie demonstrates that following an effective wellness program can do wonders for your overall health and athletic performance.”

Cherie is hooked on track and continues her training under Alicia Weber.

Cherie said, “I have the goal of improving and getting faster and I’m willing to get my butt moving even though at times it is truly tough! I am a firm believer in setting and working toward goals. Age is just a number—follow YOUR dreams.”

Stay Tuned to “Keep Track” of Cherie…
