The End Is Only The Beginning

Well, that was a crazy thirteen weeks. How about a recap! I took to the task of training, and I use that term lightly, a gentleman of larger stature. No one thought it could be done. I however, being the competitive person that I am, set out to prove them all wrong. Turns out I was wrong. Not so much in what I was doing, but how I was approaching the problem.Now, I’m not going  to bore you all with my theories on why failure from the start was almost guaranteed, but for the masochistic read up on the malfunction of serotonin . It’s really boring. So moving forward, I had lost my subject to circumstances that are hilarious and heartbreaking at the same time. The whole hospitalization still confounds me.  Then a week later I got a new client and everything changed. The “blog” became more of a potential tool for serious clients, rather than a half baked shot at hilarity. A site containing information for any client who wants to keep track of their goals, or compare what others are doing was becoming a reality. My new favorite quote comes from the CrossFit certification team: “We fail at our margins of experience”. Clearly, I was past my margins with Gargamel, but without the experience I gained from him, this evolution could not of taken place. As for Gargamel, I guess he’s the same. “Vodka soda, burger, bacon, cheddar cheese”.



Shake Weight Off!!

Every so often I’m floored by the brilliance of people.  It’s almost as if life stops entirely and certain objects just shine. Thus my award for the most creative and innovative fitness product goes to geniuses behind The Shake Weight. Finally a fitness product that offers a one stop shop for all fitness goals. Just look at how the “natural movement” complements the motion of the hand. It’s almost instinctual. In fact I recommend this product to anyone who wants to tone and keep that certain person really happy. Developed by some really, really, funny people, the Shake Weight also make the perfect gift. Mother’s day is right around the corner and what better way to show mom you care then, giving a gift that will never go flaccid! But wait, there’s more. Guys, imagine the joy on your lady’s face while she shakes her way to fitness! Awesome! And the greatest thing about  Shake Weight is it’s completely portable. Bored at a bar? Shake Weight! Waiting for the bus? Shake Weight! Join the new revolution.

Functional Movement

This exchange took place last week. It focuses on functional movement and the theory behind the movements. I tried to get Chuck Sheen to play me and John Goodman to play Gargamel, however they were unavailable. Enjoy.
