In the middle of a circuit session at North Fitzroy in the wee hours of 6.30am, clients were exhausted from a mixture of sprints, burpees, push ups, mountain climbers, etc, all the fun things that attract us to get up early to attend a 6am Bootcamp Session.
Whilst the Fitmates were being pushed to exhaustion by two trainers for this session (Anthony and Bianca), they didn’t see a third trainer coming along, but then again neither did Anthony and Bianca!
One young lad, looking fresh as a daisy in jeans and jumper (just think of North Fitzroy – 6.30am walking through Edinburgh Gardens after a big weekend!) thought the Fitmates weren’t training hard enough and took it upon himself to yell instructions from a distance.
Upon getting down and doing some of the most technically correct push ups we had seen, he informed the Fitmates they should look like him as he proceeded to lift his jumper and shirt, to reveal a nice coat of fur on his chest and well rounded belly!
If this advice wasn’t enough, he also mentioned that we should all get off the couch and stop smoking bongs!!
He then sprinted quicker than Usain Bolt, mixing in a few star jumps and squats.
To cap off his performance he somersaulted up the hill at Brunswick St Oval.
This was a 30sec workout of the highest magnitude, to which he received a round of applause and motivated the Fitmates to even great heights for the rest of the session.
Just gave me a thought for a Bootcamp session……somersaults up the hill!!
