Shelter in Shape with Jake: KENS vs. KVUE

This Texas TEGNA battle features sports reporter Jake Garcia competing against San Antonio sports anchor Evan Closky.

AUSTIN, Texas — The competition craze continues on Shelter in Shape, as KENS5 sports anchor Evan Closky challenged KVUE'S Jake Garcia to the "Name Game."

Since they don't have the same name, they spelled out "KENS at KVUE."

Before the workout even began, Closky's trash talk was rampant.

"Jake, I’m happy you brought me on because I thought it would be nice to remind you, you guys down there in Austin are the G-League, up here we’re the NBA team, we’re the San Antonio Spurs,” Closky said.

Motivated by that bulletin board material, Jake put his head down and went to work on the exercises.

The workout goes as follows: 10 push-ups, one-minute wall sit, 25 squats, 30 burpees, 45-second plank, 30 arm circles, 10 push-ups, three-minute wall sit, 40 jumping jacks, one-minute wall sit.

The rest of the Shelter in Shape movement continues to stay active as well.

Nine-year-old Montannah Kenney had hopes of hiking Mt. Everest with her mom, Hollie, in 2021. That's now on hold, but their training hasn't stopped.

KENS vs. KVUE, meanwhile, is a battle right up there with Spurs vs. Mavs and Texas vs. Oklahoma.

The wall sits ultimately wear Jake down, and Evan is able to get to his timer seconds before, in a time of 10:16.

Still, a competitive spirit was satisfied and both KENS and KVUE encourage you to make your own workouts a competition with friends and family.
