Evolved Athletics is regretful to announce the cancellation of the 1st Annual Ft. Myers, Fl. Strongman Contest. The strongman contest was to be held at Evolved Athletics in Ft. Myers, Fl. on Sept. 19th, 2009. Due to a lack of contestant participation two of our major event sponsors have cancelled their sponsorship for this event. This is a terrible disappointment to Evolved Athletics, NAS Strongman, Inc. and the fitness community. Unfortunately without their support we are now forced to cancel this event.

Evolved Athletics would like to offer it's sincerest apologies for the cancellation of this event. For those contestants that have already submitted entry fees you will receive a full refund immediately.

For any questions regarding the cancellation of this event please contact Jeremy Barnett at 239-851-3940 or crossfittb@yahoo.com.

Thank you,
Jeremy Barnett
