MOVE-Who’s done watching?

This video byΒ Arc’teryxΒ has hit the ground running and I’d love for you to take a quick look! I understand that a lot of you may need some motivation like this, so I’ll be posting more adventure videos every week. We may spend most of our days behind the desk, but start thinking about life in front of the desk. One of these days, I know you will start an adventure of your own.

“We all try to be busy, instead of trying to be alive.” Β Do you remember the last time you felt alive? Felt proud of a hardship or sacrifice you made for your body? Or maybe for a family member or friend? Coached a team? Taught someone to ride a bike? Or has the fear of failure kept you chained to the couch, watching others fight and work and achieve their goals and dreams. WHY NOT YOU? Β Not enough time, no victory in sight, not sure where to start. Well guess what, we can all win by being better. Better movers. Better motivators. Better friends, athletes, teachers, pet owners, siblings… But the fundamental ability to move is a privilege. If you have it and you’re wasting it, someone will gladly take it off your hands or your feet.

Our life on Earth is but a tiny blink in the span of the cosmos. A speck. A mere reflection of human adventure and interaction-or lack of? We spend more of our time looking into the lives of others, researching how we can become more like someone else, practicing, gossiping, lying about accomplishments and defeats. Watching. Watching. Watching. Who’s done watching?

To put it best…”Me, I’m moving., because life’s more fun when you move. “

Here, you will sculpt every major muscle group, get stronger with each time you try it, and tone all over! I challenge you to do this routine with me for 10 weeks straight, once a week….and send me your results. Your pushup and plank progress will amaze you. Do as many as you can for the first week, and then pick it up gradually. The routine should be done 1-3 times through.

Write down the routine for the gym, or snap it to your phone.

Enjoy!
