The Return to Routine

It’s been 5 weeks since the kids went back to school and I returned to my old workout routine. Despite my efforts to stay active and work out at home during MCO, CMCO, and RMCO, I felt a significant drop in fitness – especially stamina. I feel like a newbie starting back.

Journey Cycle – Where the Journey Begins

Journey is a place I’ve been wanting to try ever since I knew of its existence. It is the brainchild of Syed Harris Umar, a former instructor from Fly Project, whose classes I used to attend religiously. They were challenging classes but there was an energy to it that I really looked forward to. Evidently,Continue reading “Journey Cycle – Where the Journey Begins”

Over-Training, Rest, and the Immune Response

Naturally, we had to go check it out… Cirque is a 50 minute circuit workout that incorporates HIIT/burst training and functional training. Depending on the class you choose,Continue reading “Come Join the Cirque”

FlyClimb – the New Vertical Workout in Town

Now this is a workout I have been waiting for ever since I discovered the existence of rock climbing treadmills. While I may no longer be a rock climber, the lure of the vertical ascent is still in my blood. I have waited with anticipation for the launch of this class and have finally beenContinue reading “FlyClimb – the New Vertical Workout in Town”
