Boise, ID (December 2020)– Despite all the difficulties 2020 brought, Team MPI is finding ways to grow and help athletes continue getting smarter, stronger, and faster!

In addition to expanding their senior leadership staff, Team MPI hosted its first #TeamMPILife Challenge series. Designed to help athletes develop their mental and physical strength and endurance, each of the three challenges lasted one week and included daily activities for participants to accomplish.

“We were thrilled to have over 100 athletes participate (in at least one of the #TeamMPILife Challenges!” said senior coach, Gregg Edelstein. “Our goal is always to equip athletes to learn and continue growing. This challenge series was a great way to keep athletes engaged and developing new skills during a difficult season.”

Team MPI raffled off some sweet prizes to athletes who completed each challenge. “We are so thankful for our incredible partners who made the raffle prizes possible,” beamed Edelstein. “Each one was generous and really enthusiastic to help us offer a great experience and some amazing racing and recovery tools.”

Team MPI extends a special thanks to NormaTec/Hyperice, Blueseventy, Rudy Project, AltRed, iThlete, and Orange Mud who really made this challenge series special.
