Team Timex gathered in Lyndhurst, NJ for their 2013 camp and this time they were joined by the Timex sales team. They learned about new gadgets, got new gear, participated in ventilatory thresholds tests with the Korey Stringer Institute, met new team mates, had a big award night and in general had fun.
Most of the activities took place in and around the NY Giants Timex Performance Center where the team received their gear and were introduced to the new Timex Run Trainer 2.0 GPS watch, and the awards in the evening were given out at Metlife Stadium where Fireman Rob received a standing ovation and gave a passionate speech.
Jennifer Pinto was selected as rookie of the year, and Chris Thomas and Cindy Bannick were the age groupers of the year. Viktor Zyemtsev and Christine Anderson received Pro of the year honors, and Barry Siff and Brian Schaning were inducted into the Team Timex Hall of Fame.
