The First Pull #82
btwb is The Official Training App & Gym Management Software of the Rogue Invitational and it was an absolute blast.
The Rogue Invitational was nothing short of epic! Rain poured, the leaderboard was like a rollercoaster, and the energy? Through the roof! Laura Horvath crushed it again, snagging the top spot for the second year in a row, and Pat Vellner grabbed the gold on the men’s side.
