Happy holidays from all of us at RaceStart!

The end of the year is quickly approaching. A big thank you to all of our dedicated athletes who have followed us during this adventure. You are the backbone to this operation- without you this dream would not have become a reality.

We live and breathe by example, and RaceStart’s mission is to keep us healthy and strong for our significant others, kids, brothers, sisters, parents, etc.- It’s our goal to continue to build a strong community of leaders and set a positive example for the generations to follow.

2015-12-22 11.00.12

  • RaceStart established a relationship with Dr. Nate Sorum (Physical therapist, and chiropractor- specializing in dry needling) as well as Dr. Scott Glidden (sport chiropractic). Both are very skilled at what they do, offering a little something different to the table. I can’t stress enough how important our mobility is to see progress in our fitness regimen. These guys are great for a good “tune-up” job:) I look forward to working with them more in the future
  • In December, RaceStart was in their first tradeshow and published in the WWBIC annual magazine.


PLANS FOR 2016 :

  • In January, We will be welcoming another trainer to the the RS family, Erika. She will be offering personal training services as well. With that being said we are also looking for more qualified certified trainers. Contact Antonette for inquiries, #262-497-1844


  • Open gym will run from 6:30AM-10:30AM & 3:30PM-6PM

(M,T,TH,F) (by appointment only).

We provide a “Playbook” filled with RS workouts to help keep you on point. Our Playbook is what sets us apart from other “open gyms” in the area- and coaches will be working out at that time as well.

  • Our focus will be on building our community and our sponsorships with local athletes in 2016.
  • RaceStart will be at the “Women Up” trade show at the Expo Center the first Saturday in February- We hope to see you there!

‘Move To Perform’ Workshop


A big THANK YOU to Dr. Nate Sorum of Sorum Physiotherapy and his helper Briana Kissinger.
Over the weekend Dr. Sorum instructed RS’s first ‘Move to Perform’ Workshop .
The results were very interesting, yet very different for each of us- After we completed several tests/drills we were handed our results.
The drills that we performed revealed why we excel in certain movements, why some of our movements are ‘disfunctional’, and how to make us function properly again so that we can continue to get stronger with less risk of injury.

Nate will be back in 3 months to retest the same drills to make sure that we continue to progress without injury. If you missed out this time, make sure to clear your calendar when he comes back late Oct. (date + time TBD)2015-07-11 10.11.072015-07-11 10.38.32 2015-07-11 10.47.09 2015-07-11 10.47.22
