Giuliana Falconi Summits Mt. Whitney


I wanted to share this accomplishment which was by far the hardest thing I’ve ever done including harder than any marathon. My husband Barrett and I summited Mt. Whitney in California, which is the highest peak in the USA excluding Alaska. It was my very first 14’er at 14,505 ft. 35KM of constant elevation gain, and a famous ‘99 switchbacks’ before altitude starts to set in. The last mile was the hardest and I didn’t think I could go on. However, a fellow hiker came along and quoted David Goggins, and I was instantly reminded of the Sudbury Rocks Crew - I think Shelly and Brian always quote “who’s going to carry the boats”. And so - we went on to summit, and then made it back down safely - all in a 19 hour day!

MEET THE APEX DREAM TEAM: Coaches who make workouts fun!

Introducing Marc Cayen, Apex's running coach extraordinaire!


Marc Cayen, our running coach extraordinaire!

Running transformed Marc's life at 40, prompting a lifestyle overhaul and a shift in his social circle as he joined Sudbury's running community. His sky-high standards challenge elites to keep up, while he empowers newcomers to persevere.

Coffee addict and pizza lover, Marc fuels his passion for running and life's simple joys. ???

His favorite part of being a coach at Apex is seeing members try new things that they never thought they could do and succeed! He's all about pushing limits, witnessing members achieve the unthinkable, and embracing new experiences. As a running coach, he revels in seeing people grow stronger, run faster, and conquer their comfort zones, even in the depths of winter.

At Apex Gym, we're not just strong; we're trail race and Spartan champions, thanks to the relentless dedication of coaches like Marc Cayen!
