Cassy Freeman, Figure Competitor

Idaho Falls, Idaho

Cassy was born and raised in Idaho. She grew up involved in all kinds of sports and went on to play college basketball. During college, Cassy fell in love with lifting weights and began to look into competitive figure competitions. She got married and had her first little girl before she decided to compete. Having been involved with this since 2010, Cassy finds that the mental and physical challenge of the sport has hooked her. She received her NGA Pro Card in 2011. Her second girl came in 2012, and now she’s back and ready to compete! Her next goal is to try for an I.F.B.B. Pro Card. Cassy is so extremely grateful to have Fit Wrapz as her sponsor and to help her along the way.

Erik Slack, Professional Cyclist

Salt Lake City, UT

Erik grew up riding mountain bikes and road bikes in the hills and roads of Boise, Idaho. As a teenager with a competitive spirit and a love for all things cycling, he had a dream of making it as a professional road cyclist. After quickly moving up the ranks as a junior cyclist, Erik was able to spend a year in Colorado attending one of the premier colleges with one of best collegiate cycling teams. Following this experience he was given a chance to race at the elite level in the US for 2 years culminating in 2nd place at the Elite National Championships. This led to a great break to live and race in France. Afterwards, it was back to Boise with a year of racing for the hometown pro team, every kid’s dream. It was also this year that Erik came across Fit Wrapz and knew they needed to be a part of his daily training regimen. Currently, Erik is splitting his time between Boise and Salt Lake City while competing on the US circuit.

Joe Panzeri, Professional Golfer

Meridian, Idaho

Known for his ability to go low, Meridian, Idaho’s Joe Panzeri has established himself as one of the most exciting players currently on PGA Tour Canada. After wrapping up a successful collegiate career at Washington and San Diego, Joe turned professional in 2011 and as a rookie on PGA Tour Canada that year won the Dakota Dunes Casino Open. Though he didn’t win in 2012 — narrowly losing when Eugene Wong holed out on the 18th hole at the Tour Championship — he did shoot two rounds of 64 and another at 62 over the course of the year, with five Top 20 finishes in eight events and was eighth on the Order of Merit. Most recently, Joe won the ATB Financial Classic on PGA Tour Canada and wrapped up the season with a 6th place showing on the Tour’s Order of Merit. With all the tools to be a world class player, Joe is well on his way to a successful career on the PGA Tour.
