Here we are everyone! It’s another Friday and tonight is the In-House Throwdown! So Fire It Up! I am looking forward to seeing everyone since I have been away for the last week. Remember that afterwards we will order in some Soul Fire BBQ and bring whatever you would like to drink.
This time away didn’t permit me to train as much as I would have liked and it wasn’t very active at all. It was a painful reminder of how much our bodies just want and need to move on a daily basis. I am not speaking about getting into the gym and hitting the WOD but just moving. Go for a walk, hike, swim, whatever! Being sedentary is not good for ya! I have been able to train the last 3 days and I feel significantly better because of it. Keep moving!
Keith from Metrowave Fitness will be with us again next weekend. He will be able to begin weighing on Friday PM and then Saturday AM. If you registered for the first round then you are set for this time as well. There will be a sheet at the front desk this week to sign up for a time slot.
If you have not previously signed up but would like to participate this time then you can email Neal and sign up on the sheet as well. The cost is $75 for a one time dunk test. $125 if you want to pay for two dunk tests (Keith will return again in the fall at a date TBD).
Why should you participate? Hydrostatic weighing is the 98.5% accurate in determining your body composition. Favorable body composition is one health marker we use in the sick to super fit continuum. The scale is not a good indicator of fitness as it does not differentiate between muscle and fat. Further, those participating in the dunking receive a handout outlining recommended macronutrient consumption to improve one’s body composition.
