Team FVT is 9 days away from our biggest Obstacle Course Race of the year!

We have been training HARD since early February … have completed two races as practice and preparation … and now we take on 12-14 miles and 30-35 obstacles, starting at a surface elevation of 6,224 feet, and working upwards of 9,000.

Wish us luck!

To celebrate, I am putting my OCR Domination course on sale. This is the exact plan we have used to get ready for the big event. You can use this to prep for your own Obstacle Course Race, or just to get into the best shape of your life.

15 Minute At-Home Kettlebell + Bodyweight Workout

by admin on September 13, 2018

Do you ever think about working out … know that you SHOULD be working out … but just can’t motivate or find the time or simply make it happen?

My greatest tip for you is to start small. Take baby steps. But just get started. TODAY.

You don’t always have to make exercise this big production where you have to get yourself ready and go to the gym and fight traffic and find parking … and then figure out what to do when you’re there and work hard and be uncomfortable … not to mention miss out on social time or family time or whatever else … and then drive home and spend time fighting traffic and finding parking … etc etc etc

Now don’t get me wrong. I OWN 2 personal training / boot camp studios! There can be a LOT of value in going somehere, getting focused, having a specific plan, having coaching and accountability … but what I’m saying is, if you are having trouble getting started, you can start at home, with minimal or zero equipment, with workouts that take maybe 15 or 20 minutes.

You are going to get yourself moving and making some progress and going in the right direction. And as your fitness improves just a little bit, you are going to get the snowball moving and will want to do more.

Make sense?

Try this workout to start, from the Ultimate Cardio – Core Kettlebell Bundle:

#

15 Minute At-Home Kettlebell + Bodyweight Workout

1 – plank – 2 x :30 holds; approx 15 seconds rest between sets

2 – KB swings – 4 x 15; approx 30 seconds rest between sets – “variety” (two hand, one hand, hand-to-hand – your choice)

3 – (circuit) 12 push ups + 12 inverted rows OR 8 1 arm KB rows per side + 10 walking lunges (per side) – 3 rounds, rest as little as possible

#

That workout is super basic … but, it hits all your major muscle groups, you get some core AND strength AND conditioning work, all at the same time … and it only takes you about 15 minutes to complete.

And the best part is, there are no excuses! You can get started with it today.

To your success! -

Labor Day “Reverse Ladder” KB Workout

by admin on September 3, 2018

*Our Sept Challenge starts tomorrow! We have a few spots left, and there is still time to apply … but if you want in, please do so ASAP:

=> KBs for Fat Loss Challenge

I am about to head into the gym this morning to lead a special Labor Day boot camp workout.

The nature of being in the fitness industry means that you end up working a lot of times when everyone else is off – nights, weekends, Holidays …

… but honestly, for the most part, I enjoy it!

I ususally miss traffic going into and coming home from work.

Plus, people are generally in a good mood, and not as rushed to be somewhere at a specific time, because they don’t have the stress of work in the back of their mind.

Anyway, here is main part of the workout I have planned for today. If you can’t make it to FVT this morning, try it at home! ;)
