Thanks to all those who came out and made our first Burpees & Beer event a success! It was a small group, but we were excited to be able to give a lot of one-on-one coaching during the event.
Shawn, who attended the event, gave a good recap and review:
I did my first coached workout with Lisa and Jamie yesterday and what a great experience! First, Lisa and Jamie showed us the correct form for squats and planks before we started, which they were both very knowledgeable about and it was incredibly helpful. Jamie and Lisa both shared their experiences with getting form correct and why it is so important. It was a very comfortable setting in Centennial Park, where they positioned us in the shade so we wouldn’t get too hot.
We did a series of exercises for 10 minutes, but were told to take breaks if we needed to so no one felt pressured to push through even if they were in pain. Then we did a ‘tag-team’ exercise where we got to partner up and do opposite exercises, which was a great way to challenge ourselves.
Afterwards, we had a Q and A session where they advised us on anything we asked and took any suggestions or requests we had. It was great to have such wonderful and experienced ladies help us with our workout. This is an experience I will take with me for the rest of my life as it has helped me get my form correct and inspired me to have fun, creative workouts. Thank you, ladies!
Thank you Shawn for coming out and giving such a great effort! We had a wonderful time working with everyone who showed up, as well as enjoyed drinks and dinner at South Street afterwards. What a fun afternoon!
