The last session of my day featured a focused group that was willing to work hard from beginning to end. We warmed up with some fun basketball drills, worked on a series of multi-planar movements with the steel mace, and ended the workout with a simple yet brutal finisher! Good job guys and girls.

Can’t ask for a better client than Alex. He is disciplined, doesn’t makes excuses, and always ends the set with a smile 🙂 He tore several ligaments playing soccer, but instead of just waiting around hopelessly for months before his knee surgery, he instead dedicated himself to intensive and progressive workouts. The result: his injured leg has never been stronger! We teach every client that with proper food and exercise the body's self-healing potential can be extraordinary.

It’s always fun training Angelo and Francis. This morning’s workout had a basketball/football theme. Whatever I devise for these guys they not only accept the challenge, they raise the bar. (Just a few minor footwork corrections to be addressed for next time!) Music: Bensound.com

Here is a reminder that no matter the health challenges we may face, we must remain proactive. Our client Hymie is a perfect example. At 77 years old, after two major heart surgeries, most people would just give up. Hymie does this instead…

Allow your creativity and individuality to shine through your workouts, engaging mind and body while flowing through multiple planes of motion. As a trainer I make sure to teach my clients the fundamentals that allow them to reconnect with their body, creating a deep sense of confidence and breaking barriers along the way. Let’s Jazz it up a little! (Music: Bensound.com).

Much more of the brain is devoted to movement than to language. Language is only a little thing sitting on top of this huge ocean of movement.” Oliver Sacks, neurologist.

Here are a few highlights of my training sessions from this week. The heavy mace is an ancient weapon and an incredibly effective tool for targeting imbalances while improving posture, stability and mobility. These movements are a real challenge for both mind and body.

During our training session I showed my group some basic boxing fundamentals. It was their very first time. Then at the end of the workout I asked them to shadow box, and it wasn’t all that bad for a first time! They requested the Rocky theme!

We will improve footwork in the weeks to come. Boxing fundamentals, when practiced properly, are extremely beneficial for improving hip mobility and core strength. A great addition to our workouts for clients who enjoy it.

2018 Markito Fitness Shooting Competition, Marc: 261 pts.

It takes fundamentals and repetition to be a good shooter. Once you nail down the physical aspect, it becomes solely a mental game. The process is not glamorous, it’s tedious. And it always breaks your heart, because there is no reason to ever miss...
