Wednesday’s “WTF” Moment

By: Janine Serio


“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying!”          {Michael Jordan}

“These workouts are either going to make us stronger or have our clients wondering what they did to deserve THIS” {insert comment made by Daria and I post workout this morning}.

I kid BUT, seriously, we have been beta-testing some pretty awesome signature workouts for a couple upcoming projects. All we can say is WTF!

Are they intense? Well, that’s an understatement.

Are they challenging? You are joking, right?

Are we wondering what we ever did to deserve THIS? Umm, you betcha!

While we are having FUN testing out these protocols (I mean this with all sincerity), we wanted to offer you the opportunity to try and give us feedback! Yes, we want YOU beta-testing right along with us!

HERE  {see workout below} is what we did today at the local high school track. While we encourage you to get outside for this one, we have given you a treadmill option to do as well!

You ready? You pumped? One more thing before you get your rear into gear…if you are not having that “WTF” moment, you must not be “Working To Failure!” 🙂

Have fun, be safe, and enjoy! Most importantly, WTF!

P.S.. As always, make sure to do a proper dynamic warm-up, and static stretch cool-down. Please modify the exercises and intensity to meet the needs of your current fitness level too!!
