Where Rowling Began

October 31, 2016

Hey Vic City,

 

One of my favourite warm-up activities is Rowling. It comes up every so often in the classes, and I think it's a great way to get slightly competitive without the stress of the workout. No one likes to do "reward" burpees or air squats, so focusing on trying to land that screen on that specific goal meter is a great way to get mentally into "workout mode". 

 

Do you know where this game came from? I'll give you a few hints:

- It's been around since 2013

- It was announced on his YouTube channel CFProjectMayhem

- He is the fittest man in history

 

If you guessed Rich Froning, you are right!

 

Take a peak at the below video and head into a group class either Monday or Tuesday to get yourself in a game of Rowling.

 

Have fun,


Adam
