Special thanks for this blog post to Ron Veilleaux with MT ErgoFit. We honor the hard work Ron has put in to help Fit to Fight transition as the key ingredient to organization and implementation of this year’s Peak Triathlon.
This year Fit to Fight took over the running of the Peak Triathlon. This would be the 6th year of the Triathlon and we were very pleased to be able to take this over as Fit to Fight’s main fundraiser of the year while maintaining the core partners of the event: The Peak Health and Wellness Center, and our Race Director, Kayla Johnson.
This year we had over 230 competitors, and over 95 volunteers. Additionally this year we had a new Corporate Cup division, with 9 teams competing for their business to bring home the Corporate Cup. The team from First Security Bank edged out some close competition to win the 1st Corporate Cup.
The Peak Triathlon always has some great stories. This year we had two teams compete in the Triathlon that were alumni from our last Fit to Fight session. It is truly inspiring to have our alumni competing in the event showing their strength after their battles with cancer. As in years past there were plenty of first timers. The first timers are the most fun to follow on the course as they always seem to have a bundle of nerves at the start to an overwhelming sense of accomplishment at the finish line. Finally, we had a new course record set this year by Dylan Gillespie, tearing through the course in 52:44.
The Peak Triathlon truly can offer something to any level of athlete. The proceeds from the triathlon go directly to Fit to Fight and help us offer our three free sessions each year for folks that are battling or recently battled cancer.

Special thanks to Ron Veilleux of MT Ergo Fit for sending this note of thanks for the annual sponsorship by The Core Studio at Alpine on behalf of one of our favorite soccer teams in all of Montana!
I wanted to pass on a group “Thank you” from our Soccer bunch this summer. As per usual the team picture (below) is not the best (sun in the eyes, several players missing), but The Core Studio’s support of our soccer team is very much appreciated. We have a few players over 40 now and a few others that are close to the magic number. At 43, I am happy to be able to still run around and compete with some of the young pups on the other squads. Much of my ability to do so comes from the advice, exercises, and hands-on therapy that I have received from your staff over the years. I know a few of the other teammates also would give a kudos the Alpinestaff for assistance they have received.
Thank you again for your support!
Our thanks to Ron Veilleux of MT ErgoFit for this eye-opening post.
Sitting, the new smoking? This and other tag lines have come to the forefront of what some are calling, “sitting disease.” Recent studies have shown that between 60 and 70% of Americans spend six or more hours sitting a day. Furthermore, studies show that if these Americans would cut their sitting time in half, (sitting less than 3 hours per day), their life expectancy would increase by roughly 2 years.
At MT ErgoFit we work with folks to create alternative office environments to reduce sitting in the workplace. Our treadmill desk line offers one of the best alternatives to the classic office sitting environment. People who are using treadmill desks on average of 3-4 hours a day are burning an extra 2000 calories in a 5-day work week. Our clients who are using the units are finding they have more energy in the afternoon hours of the day compared to when they would sit. They also report a fresher feeling at the end of the day rather than a “low-energy” type feeling they would have after sitting all day.
A complete Treadmill desk unit starts at $1299, and standing desks conversions start at $450. These small investments can bring immediate positive health improvements, and based on the studies mentioned above, they may just help you live longer. Rethink the way you work . . . today.

It’s always nice to receive a thumbs up for doing a great job. So we were thrilled that Ron Veillux of MT ErgoFit shared with us his testimony about the staff at Alpine Physical Therapy.
Ron writes: I just want to give you huge kudos on your staff. In the ten years I have been in the office furniture industry I always found it difficult to find people who could represent both our company and products correctly in the field and provide the level of service I expected.
As my new company starts to grow over the next year, I know the hardest part for me will be to find workers who I trust to provide the high level of service and knowledge that I expect, as well as end users.
My point is that you have fabulous people at Alpine. They are not good, but great, and at the same time diverse. At both facilities I could walk in and talk to anyone and feel confident that I would get what I needed, and with a smile and positive attitude. I don’t know how you have created such a wonderful team, Brent, but it says a lot about you as a leader.
