The "Maltz" Challenge

It’s back….The “Maltz” Challenge

Coming to Arenal Fitness


Friday, March 23, 2012 at 10:30am

All are welcome to join in on the fun and workout with our guests, the United States DEA Agents!! We can scale this workout to your level.  It’s just a matter of participating and giving it your all in honor of “Maltz”. If you are not a member of Arenal Fitness, you will need to complete our Online Registration. On March 23, 2003, Master Sergeant Michael Maltz, a U.S. Air Force PJ (Pararescue Jumper), was killed in action in a helicopter crash along with five of his brother PJ’s while attempting a rescue mission of injured/sick children in the mountains of Afghanistan.  MSGT Maltz is the late brother of Derrick Maltz, Special Agent in Charge of SOD. According to those who were close to him, MSGT Maltz possessed an enormous amount of strength and stamina. With this in mind, the Maltz Challenge memorial event, a specifically challenging physical workout, was created by DEA Special Agents to honor MSGT Maltz and other men and women in our nation’s Armed Forces who have been killed in action. The Maltz Challenge is not a fund raiser, there is no entry fee, and individual participation is voluntary.  During the past three years, hundreds of DEA Special Agents, Intelligence Research Specialists, Diversion Investigators, and other DEA personnel have participated in the Maltz Challenge. This event is open to all and the popularity has grown to the point that participation by individuals from other law enforcement agencies, the military, and civilians rivals that of DEA personnel.
