Shark Week/Hawaiian Theme Workout Recap

What a great workout this morning!

We started with a drizzle around 10 am while we were setting things up in the cars, but by the time we got to the hill all precipitation stopped unfortunately. Still, the soaked grass provided a great setting for the return of our Shark Week/Hawaiian Mashup. Other than the drizzle stopping, things fell perfectly for this workout. We had 20 kids on the dot, teams paired up really well, and the sharking zone was shrinked to keep the feeding frenzy as intense as possible.

The winning team this year came from the dynamic duo of Shakes and Fry!

The shark suit did not last the entire workout for obvious reasons, but Shakes was responsible for the most shark attacks during the sharking station, which surely helped her cause. And Fry is getting back into Fry form as well. Usually we do 4 rounds of this workout, but everyone was pretty emphatic that 3 would be just fine this time around, so we kept it there. Also, shouts to 10 am rookies Emily and Abby Walker, NuNu Diattara, and Noah Heide for participating in their first Champions Club Theme Workout!

Full results can be seen here.

Next week's theme will be announced in the coming days. Great job to everyone and keep this Saturday momentum going!

Theme Workout Announcement: Shark Week/Hawaiian Workout

This Saturday at 10 am will be the return of our classic Shark Week workout, just in time to kick off the weeklong special on the Discovery Channel.

Since 2014, we have combined this workout with our classic Hawaiian Theme Workout - sometimes doing it at the hill and sometimes staying at the gym. This year's destination is still TBA, but be prepared for both. As far as violence goes, the sharking stations is about as rough as it gets; run through the alley with a medicine ball and avoid getting sharked or else your team has burpees. Highlights from 2014 can be seen here:

As far as video production skills, this was surely my finest hour on Windows Live Movie Maker.

Anyway, this Saturday at 10 am! Be there!

Saturday Highlights: Jurassic Park Theme Workout

Yesterday marked the return of our Jurassic Park Theme Workout - which debuted back in Summer 2015 - and had a total of 17 in attendance! Two weeks in a row of great Theme Workout attendance definitely makes me less of a cranky elf. We modified this one a bit; changed clean & jerks to just cleans, and did 2 reps before rotating instead of just 1. We also did the full minute on the second rotation. Due to the numbers, there were short transition times after the dinosaur attacks to get us organized.

The winning team was Murley and Fry!

Danielle and Cecilia were close in second place, followed by a few other teams. We even got a surprise guest appearance from Pat! Overall it turned out pretty well given the complexity of this workout compared to, say, 80s or Disney. Big ups to everyone that showed up! I'll keep you guys posted on when the next theme is.

Check the results here.

Theme Workout Announcement: Jurassic Smash 2.0

This weekend will mark the return of our Jurassic Smash Theme Workout, which originated back in Summer 2015 and is coming up in honor of the new Jurassic World movie that came out. A group of our kids went to see it a little over a week ago:

You can see the format for the workout here. We might be making a change or two, or maybe not, but either way you can expect a good workout.

Due to some people having work, we're going to get started with the workout right at 10 am. The gym will be open before that (probably 9:30 or so) to get anything resembling a warmup if you so desire.

Saturday Highlights: SpongeBob Theme Workout

If you were in attendance on Sunday, you were in for a real treat of a workout. Our SpongeBob Theme went down with no speed bumps and posted 19 people in attendance. Here's a video recap. Shouts to Murley for chopping it up!

Great job to everyone who showed up! Stay posted to see if we have another Theme Workout coming this Saturday...

SpongeBob Theme Workout Recap

Our first Theme Workout of the Summer was definitely worth the wait, as we had 19 people in attendance this morning for our first ever SpongeBob Theme Workout. A workout video mashup will be posted tomorrow most likely, but in essence we split the group into pairs, with each pair belonging to one restaurant: The Krusty Krab or the Chum Bucket. They went through three stations at 3 minutes each, then three relay races to cap it off. Whichever team's pairs had the highest/fastest scores for each segment wins the workout and the Krabby Patty Secret Formula.

The winning team this year was the Krusty Krab!

While they did not get perfect synchronization on the Dutchman's Treasure Hunt, they managed enough reps to beat Shannon and the rest of the Chum Bucket's crew.

Like I said, the workout video mashup will most likely be posted tomorrow, but we did manage to get a lot of good pictures. And the workout results will also be updated, but are posted.

Battle for the Secret Formula Workout Results

Binno also made a special guest appearance to the workout today, rocking a mustache worthy of any of those Overly Manly Man memes. But it was great to see him around again.

Lastly, due to the great turnout today, I will watch one episode of SpongeBob this weekend. So which one should I watch?

Theme Workout Announcement: Spongebob

The first Theme Workout of the Summer is always a new one, and we are continuing that for Summer 2018 with the introduction of the first-ever Spongebob Theme Workout.

This one was requested primarily by the Banets and Jay, and we'll probably have Shakes and Murley included on the brainstorming and final touches. I'll post full workout details as soon as we lock it down. But in the meantime, mark your calendars for this Saturday at 10 am.

ps. The parents Wednesday 6:30 team workout may or may not be a test run of this. Maybe we could do a M*A*S*H one, or whatever you guys watched back in the 60s.
