We are trying something new, as far as fitness goes, this Saturday.
Well, honestly, if I was to judge by the description of this thing… It seems very similar to what we used to do in our own studio, starting 7 years ago.
And, to give credit where it’s due; What we did was started by Dave some 4 or 5 years prior to that. Who knows where he got it from.
So, this “new thing” we’re trying…
Well, it’s probably not all that new after all.
But that’s OK.
Humans can really only do 7 base movements. As a result, that “unlimited possibilities” thing isn’t all that unlimited after all.
We’re dealing with a finite number of combinations.
If you think about it, modifications to movement tend to wind up being;
- “Creative” naming,
- resistance amounts, and
- environmental factors.
That’s all there is to it.
Most people can actually come up with their own workouts, if they’re so inclined.
We just happen to realize that most of us would rather not. That’s why you’re here, isn’t it?
Trying something new, you said..?
So, back to the “something new” we’re up to this Saturday (tomorrow)…
Since it’s probably not all that new, here’s what I’m expecting:
It will kick our a**es (our conditioning needs some work!)
It will be in a gym with a “few” other people (scary!)
The environment strikes me as very “EDM club” like (so plenty of music to get the heart rate going, even before the workout starts!)
Working there as a coach; One of the most accomplished Parkour athletes I’ve met. She’s a bada*s! (And a wonderfully sweet human being.)
I tried her 9 minute “gut buster” routine. Consider my gut thoroughly busted!
When she smiles, I get a bit scared…
All in all though, I am quite excited about my new training experience tomorrow.
Hope you’ll enjoy yours today!
