Hilarie and I went to a professional conference this weekend in Orlando. With Orlando being such a tourist destination, it is a very popular conference and trade show destination, making it very conveinent to accumulate our continuing education credits. So what do you think strength coaches and personal trainers do at their professional conferences? Just sit there and listen to presentations about exercise? “How boring!”, you may think. Well, sitting and listening was part of the weekend, but half the time we were sitting or lying on the floor trying to catch our breath! The other half of the time we were DOING the exercise, and it was quite a two-day, eight-hours-a-day workout! Within the first hour everybody was sweating and we bumped the AC in the room down to 55 degrees! The presenters did a good job of mixing lecture with applied, and no one was bored. It may come as a surprise to some that there wasn’t a treadmill, stepper, weight stack machine, bike, or dumbbell over 10 lbs in the room, and almost everyone was commenting on their soreness Sunday morning! What did we use? Our main piece of equipment was the oldest yet most forgotten equipment in the world – OUR OWN BODIES!!! Between lunges, planks, squats, and push-ups that we performed at intensities from beginner to advanced, we got a full body workout, including cardio. Add in the tubing, stability balls, medicine balls, ladders, balance discs, and foam rollers that we incorporated, and we essentially had a limitless supply of exercises to combine in infinite combinations! Hmmm…this is what HD FitPro has been about from the start! If you like the idea of getting a full body workout, never having to repeat the same workout, and never having to leave your home to do it, then give Hilarie or me a call today!
