MMB – The Spring Challenge has Begun!

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all doing well and are enjoying this beautiful weather!  For those of you who were away on spring break, I hope it was awesome and you are coming back feeling refreshed, revived, and ready to take on some serious fitness!

This past Saturday was the kick off of the Spring Fitness Challenge and it was tough, but oh so fun!  For this Challenge, I’ve changed things up a bit.  I’ve shelved the fitness tests for the moment, and want more time to focus on the actual Challenge Work Out.  For the next six weeks, I’m incorporating a fitness method that I learned at my conference, which is the Partner/Pacer system. 

This is how it works:  You will partner up with someone – ideally someone who is close to your fitness level.  There will be four stations.  At each station, there are separate exercises posted on a white board for the partner and the pacer.   When the pacer is done with his exercises, he high fives his partner and now the partner becomes the pacer and the pacer moves on to the partner exercises.  The partner cannot stop his exercises until the pacer high fives him and says, “Ok it’s your turn now.”  The two people switch back and forth as many times as they can within a four minute time frame.  The exercises are designed to work the entire body and work in all three plains of motion with level changes, core challenges, and plyometric options 🙂  When a station is completed, there is a 45 second rest and water break before starting the next station.

For the 30 minute class, you will go through the stations one time through.  For the 60  minute class, you’ll go through two times! 

Working with a partner is such a fun way to do fitness!  In some cases, if we have an odd number of people, I can totally make it work with a trio too!  The feedback from Saturday was very positive and everyone felt like they had a great work out and fun experience working with a partner!  I’m looking forward to seeing you all again this Saturday for another Challenge morning!  You won’t want to miss it!  This is a great time to bring a friend and spread the word out there about my classes!

This is kind of a quick blog this morning because I’m heading out in a few minutes to take my son Ryan into Kaiser to have a surgery.  He is having his adenoids, turbinates, and tonsils removed this morning due to his horrible sleep apnea.  If you think of it, please pray for Ryan this morning.  He’s kind of scared, but also looking forward to the relief of being able to breathe at night.  Thanks to my prayer warriors out there!  Love you guys!
