Nash led this week’s trainers training trainers workout. He took the group through an 8 minute warm up, which consisted of full- body myofascial releases. Then, we moved on to a flow warm- up, followed by a circuit and cone game.
The workout was intended to start out slow and speed up throughout, while allowing each person to be as competitive with others and against themselves as they wanted.
During the cone game, players had 3 timed rounds to turn over as many cones as possible while they skillfully darted around obstacles in the way.
Two people at a time competed against each other to turn all the cones one way or the other and try to beat each other to the cones in a time limit. Nick proved to be the champion overall in this competition.
The group ended the workout with a different circuit that focused on different muscles.
Interns Mitch and Luke led TTT (Trainers Training Trainers) this week. Wednesday was the last day of their internship and they were ready to put the skills they have learned in the past few weeks to the test.
They both love basketball, so it only made sense to teach a basketball themed TTT. Starting with Luke’s warm-up, the group did some side shuffle drills and some quick passing work to get a sense for the speed required for the workout.
The group maintained good spirits while they tried their best. Katie Rey. said at one point, “I quit basketball in 1st grade because no one would pass me the ball….and I started doing cartwheels instead and then I was a cheerleader all through high school.” Katie N. said, “yeah I'm not basketball inclined.” While there were a few moments like these of joking around, the group was very competitive during the team competitions.
Mitch and Luke admitted with smiles on their faces at the end of the session, that it was, “nice to see the trainers sweat.”
Positive attitudes, motivation, smiles, determination, and a little (or a lot of) sweat got the group through the workout.
This week it was Nick’s turn to lead TTT (Trainers Training Trainers), and he really took control of the session! Nick decided to use the trainers as a guinea-pig group for a new circuit he made, which consisted of 5 or 6 different exercise stations.
Each person started at a different station and would do 45 seconds of the workout at that station, with a 15 second break between their 3 sets at that station. This break allowed people to catch their breaths while not having to worry about switching stations.
Training is about celebrating all the wins big and small that come from committing to healthy living. We are super pumped to celebrate Mary’s #smallwinsarebigwins.
Mary has had a knee replacement and has limited mobility. She started out with modified jumping jacks and just had a breakthrough in her training session to do a jumping jumping jack!
BOOM! That looks super solid, Mary! Congratulations!!!!
More importantly, Mary is moving better and feeling better.
