Taking a Risk

Today's Inspiration:

What. A. Month.   

I've barely been able to catch my breath between finalizing wedding plans, attending showers, juggling a crazy as usual work load, trying to prepare for two whole weeks off (YAY!), and closing Scott's gym purchase.  Yep, you heard me right, gym purchase! 

Last Friday, Scott officially became the owner of CrossFit Vengeance - Myrtle Beach South.  CrossFit Vengeance was one of the original CrossFit boxes in Myrtle Beach.  Scott met Bryan, the former owner of CrossFit Vengeance, a few years back when Scott had first opened BeStrong Training Systems.  They capitalized on their different training styles, and developed a mutually beneficial business relationship referring each other clients, occasionally training and coaching one another, and sharing resources.  When Scott learned that Bryan and his wife were moving to Asheville and looking to sell CrossFit Vengeance, Scott jumped at the chance to grow his business and merge BeStrong Training Systems into CrossFit Vengeance.  

Not too much has changed (except his crazy schedule just got a lot crazier).  Scott will continue to offer private and semi-private training to those clients looking for the one on one training experience.  He will also coach three CrossFit classes a day at 5:30 am, 8:00 am, and 5:30 pm during the week.  I've decided to crash the 5:30 am class, so come workout with me if your an early riser, an insomniac, or a glutton for punishment - I need all the support and motivation I can find!

Today's Workout:

Because today was Scott's first official day programming for CrossFit Vengeance, he  opted for a refresher of the fundamentals.  Like any trainer worth their salt, good form is Scott's primary focus in training clients; it's absolutely critical to gain strength and prevent injuries.  After a full body warm up of jumping jacks and intense stretching, we covered the proper form for three fundamental lifting movements - squats, push ups, and pull ups.  It wasn't exactly a walk in the park, there were a few as-many-reps-as-possible challenges thrown in there to keep everyone on their toes.

Now that the cat's out of the bag, I'm hoping I'll be able to return to my normal workout posts, only with a little more circuit style training thrown in the mix.  Of course, I'll have to find a new photographer first; my old one is a little tied up with his 10+ new early morning clients. 

You better believe this flashy new decal was slapped on my car the day Scott moved gyms (a good two weeks before closing).  I'm so excited for him!
