Tech. Sgt. Jacob Peeterse,
Tyndall Air Force Base Airmen
Leadership School instructor,
has been training to lift some
heavy logs.
He isn't moonlighting as a
lumberjack. The logs are 265
pounds of solid steel, and he's
aiming to lift them from the
ground to his chest; to over
his head in as many times as
possible in a short amount of
Sergeant Peeterse is preparing
to compete in the South Atlantic
Strongman III platinum contest,
Feb. 16 in Columbia, S.C. The
top three competitors from each
weight division receive a berth into
the national competition in Las
Vegas this November. Sergeant
Peeterse is competing in the 231-
265 pound weight division.
The contest, similar to
television's "World's Strongest
Man," contains non-traditional
athletic events that require
substantial feats of strength.
One event requires the contender
to pull a 700-pound chain, while
another has participants pull semi-
style trucks by way of a body
harness. The keg loading contest
has contestants lifting 200, 225,
and 250-pound kegs to various
Sergeant Peeterse first became
interested in participating in
strongman competitions a year
ago while reading about them on
the Web.
He placed fourth in the
"Powerhouse of the South," his

first competition last April.
"I started competing to have a
reason to train," he said. "I used
to go to the gym just to go; now
I have a definitive goal. I like
directing that competitive urge
toward something I can compete
He also said he likes being solely
responsible for the results.
"There aren't any teammates. If
you're going to blame anybody (for
poor results), you have to blame
yourself," the sergeant said.
His typical day begins with a 4
a.m. wake-up, followed by a one-
hour commute from Apalachicola.
He trains at the Tyndall AFB
fitness center for a few hours and
then works at ALS until 4:30 p.m.
He said his bedtime is usually
between 7-8 p.m.
"Tech. Sgt. Peeterse is one of
the most dedicated people I know
when it comes to physical fitness,"
said Staff Sgt. Richard Marshall,
ALS instructor. "He does not have
to rely on other people to keep him
motivated because when the gym
is open he will be there with or
without you."
His weekly training regimen
consists of weight training three
days a week and cardiovascular
training two days.
"I try to do as many lifts in the
gym that mimic the competition
lifts," Sergeant Peeterse said. "I
tend to do a lot of clean presses,
squatting and dead lifting."
To maintain his current weight,
Sergeant Peeterse tries to keep his
caloric intake at 4,500 calories a
"I eat five to six meals a day with
a meal every two to three hours,"

he said.
He noted his diet consists of
a lot of shakes and protein bars
supplemented with whole food at
lunch and dinner.
Despite his full schedule,
Sergeant Peeterse doesn't think of
himself as being very busy.
"I don't think of it as busy," he
said. "Busy denotes I don't like
what I'm doing. I like what I'm
He is known for his competitive
spirit, hard work and positive
attitude by his co-workers as well
as being an example for displaying
a positive Air Force image.

Lady Tigers finish 2-0 at MLK Challenge

The Tyndall Tigers women's
varsity basketball team won both of
their games at the inaugural Martin
Luther King Basketball Challenge
last weekend at Eglin Air Force
In their first game, the Lady Tigers
faced the KeeslerAFB Lady Dragons,
the same team they defeated 90-61 the
previous week. Keesler successfully
used a spread-offense, slowing down
the peace of the game in the first half.
Tyndall was down 24-26 at the half.
In the second half, the Lady Tigers
imposed their will as they played
tenacious defense and changed the
tempo of the contest into a fast-
break affair. Behind leading scorer
Tiffanie Guthrie, who scored 33 of
her 44 points in the second half, the
Lady Tigers quickly jumped out to
a double digit lead and didn't look
back. The Tigers pulled off the


"For Tech. Sgt. Peeterse, the
gym takes precedence over all
else," said Master Sgt. Rhonda
Martin, ALS flight chief. "There
are many activities that provide
solace and peace. I would not say
he is obsessed but he is definitely
committed to always displaying a
fit image. As the saying goes, 'An
apple a day keeps the doctor away,'
but for him a workout a day keeps
a bad attitude away!"
Following the Feb. 16 contest,
his next competition is slated for
March 22 in Pensacola and he has
high hopes.
"I want to win. I go in with the
attitude that I'm going to win,"
he said. "If I go in and give 100
percent, then I'm satisfied."

victory 71-51.
Monica Mason collected 11 points
and led in assists with seven. Guthrie
added 15 rebounds to her stats. Shell
Joseph led Keesler in scoring with 14
Sunday, the Lady Tigers faced the
host Eglin AFB Lady Eagles. The
Tyndall squad put on a dazzling
display on both the offensive and
defensive sides. At the half, the
Tigers led 47-16. The second half
was the same story as Tyndall cruised
to a 92-43 victory.
Guthrie led Tyndall with 31 points,
six assists and 14 rebounds, followed
by Mason's 21 points. Sandra
Williams and Richere Harrison both
collected 10 rebounds each. Fatimat
Bello led Eglin with 11 points.
The Lady Tigers improved their
record to a perfect 10-0 on the season.
They await the Southeastern Military
Athletic Conference Women's Post
Season Tournament.
