THE STORY:

My name is Shaun Provost, and I am a 26-year old sponsored Runner & Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) athlete.  I started my athletic career early on by participating in a dance program in my community, and soon transitioned into gymnastics.  I competed as a state - and nationally- ranked gymnast for about 13 years, before moving away to college.  I took a break from competitive sports for long enough to realize how much I missed them,  and immediately fell in love with running and OCR.  The combination of speed, strength, and flexibility reminded me so much of the gymnast life that I had been missing.  I now hold 15 podium finishes and two records in Obstacle Course Races across the U.S., and am sponsored by several awesome companies (Topo Athletic, OCR Gear, Icebug USA, Legendborne) that help me achieve my fitness goals.

Without my mom and sister as very active and fit role models, I am not sure where I would be now.  With their support and motivation, gymnastics and sports like running and OCR became my rock, my constants, through a number tumultuous, stressful stages of my life. They taught me teamwork, perseverance, dedication, leadership, and so much more. 

I wish this for all young girls and women - that they not only have the support, but the access they need to try new sports, to join teams, and to get out there and be active in their own way.  Sports are typically so male-dominated, and it's not "cool" for girls to be strong, or fast, but these very aspects help build girls into the young women they need to become successful in fast-paced and action-packed world of today. Sports can build self-confidence and self-worth that other aspects of life can't grant.  That's why I am so passionate about PowerPlay NYC; they bring these aspects of self-value, self-confidence, leadership - to those communities that might not otherwise have access.
