This event honors the memory of our beloved Coach DJ Cedent, who passed in 2019. All proceeds will benefit Austin Simply Fit’s Student Athlete Scholarship Fund, to be given to select AISD student athletes entering college or trade school in the fall. Last year, Krista and the Austin Simply Fit community were able to give $500 scholarships to twelve exceptional students, and we hope to give much more in 2023! This year we are thrilled to be teaming up with our Co-Host, Chris Tejeda, owner and head trainer at Chris Gets U Fit. Our mission is to help as many student athletes as possible
Coach DJ was an exceptional personal trainer, who had an enormous energy and passion not only for fitness, but also his community. He was a teammate in every sense of the word - supportive, encouraging, a teacher, a student. He was fearless in his fight against sickle cell disease, refusing its limitations and always training with passion and intensity.
We know Coach DJ would be pleased to see his legacy at ASF encouraging others to train to their full potential, and supporting rising student athletes in their future endeavors.
On event day, we'll have our world class team of personal trainers spotting, loading and judging the lifts. There will be great music, a supportive community and even a margarita machine. Even if you are not lifting, please donate and help these young student athletes as they embark on the next chapter in their lives.
We will also some awesome local vendors joining us. Check them out!
