One time I heard running on a treadmill described like being a hamster on a wheel. Staring at nothing, repeating the same motion over and over. It makes my muscles cringe just thinking about it!
I’ll be honest, I was a 24-hour fitness member for years. It was an on again, off again relationship… And when we were ‘on’ it was mediocre at best. I, without a doubt, was a hamster. The same routines, few results.
At Kaia, I couldn’t feel less like a hamster. I run free, around buildings, up hills, sprinting, jogging, even skipping! I jump, I throw, I lift, I PLAY. In the Kaia world, I have FUN. In our world, we are all ATHLETES. (Yes, that’s you!)
I cannot express how grateful, enlightened and successful I feel at Kaia. I am thankful for my mobility and ABILITY. I am aware of how my body can and should move… And how much more functional a box-jump is than a million reps on any machine. I am amazed by the constant progress, challenge and FUN I continue to find. Yes, working out can (and should!) be FUN!!
*If you’re a Kaia girl that’s been a member for a session or ten sessions, take the time this week to think about what you love about Kaia. What keeps you coming back? What keeps you striving to be better, faster and stronger? What are you grateful for? What do you love about your body (in how it looks, feels or what it allows you to do)?
*If you’re just staring at Kaia next week for our BRIK, what made you sign up? What inner strength do you already possess that will get your through the door next Monday? What kind of athlete do you want to be?
Whether you’re a newcomer or a veteran, we can’t wait to spend this BRIK with you! It’s going to be 6-weeks of awesome, challenging and FUN workouts… And you’ll surprise yourself sooner than you think with your strength, determination and athleticism!
