Didn’t the long weekend feel GREAT!!?! Every weekend should have at least 3 or 4 days in it – that’s my professional opinion. Take it or leave it.
After yet another track workout, we actually got A LOT done on the house.
The kitchen backsplash is now TILED (thanks Katy and Catherine!) and the entire kitchen is painted (thanks Katy and Maddy!). My dad, Travis and his dad were able to tear out all of the old baseboards in the house (the prior owners installed central air and heat, so the copper piping baseboards were superfluous). I’ll try to round up my pictures and give you guys look at all of the changes sometime this week or next! As of now, the projected move-in date is May 2016.
So anyway…Tuesday Trainer.
The theme for this week is EXERCISE PROGRESSIONS!
I chose this theme because, as I teach more and more classes where the fitness levels are SO diverse, a systematic progression from Beginner to Advanced is NEEDED. In Bootcamp, the fitness levels can range from post-surgery rehab clients to high performance athletes and as a teacher, I have to cater to EVERYONE. And as you’ll see below, it’s totally possible.
Fitness is about movement. As long as you’re moving, you’re good. That should always be the goal – everyone just MOVE. I think that when we make everything HEIGHTENED and ADVANCED, we segregate a HUGE population of beginners. That’s not ok. Fitness is about movement. Fitness is for everyone.
end Trainer rant. Check out this Progression Guide. No segregation allowed on TT!
