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.
