Fitness Friday: Strength Training

Last Friday I shared my first experience with San Francisco-via-Stockholm fitness app Vint. I’m thrilled to say that I’ve partnered with them for the month of July to bring you some experiences from the trenches!

The first class that I signed up for was Strength Training with Brandon. The usual space was out of commission so we met in a nearby park for a bodyweight and ring workout. There was one other guy there and we had a blast chatting and cracking each other up while Brandon tried his best to crush our spirits.

Kidding.

Sort of.

One of the reasons I was so excited to give Vint a try is because I’m bored and plateauing with my usual workouts. This strength training session really pushed me. I was exhausted and already feeling sore when the hour came to an end and as I sit writing this, four days later, I’m still sore.

And it feels AMAZING.

When I put in the work, I want to feel it, you know? So tell me… When was the last time YOU were really sore from a workout?

You may have heard me mention Brendan Brazier and his Thrive books in the past, I’m a really big fan of not only his written work but of his general approach to food and nutrition. The healthy food delivery system Fresh N’ Lean is now partnering with Brendan to develop a new line based on his recipes and healthy food principles called Thrive Foods Direct“Fresh ‘N Lean is not another quick fix or fad diet. We do not eliminate carbs or restrict calories. Our concept is really quite simple: prepare healthy, fresh, and delicious meals, without all the preservatives, additives, sodium, and sugar that Americans have come to accept as “normal,” and add the convenience of home/office delivery.”
