Still spreading the (TRX) love
It typically doesn’t take very long for our neighbors in an anchorage to start referring to us (well, Rebecca especially) as the strange people who are always exercising on the bow of their boat. Occasionally this brings legitimate inquiries about what we’re doing instead of just awkward stares. Yes, although non-athletes might not notice it in the same way, anyone cruising who did lead a sports-filled life back on land typically finds the cruising life not as physically challenging as they were used to and thus there’s a bit of a void that needs to be filled.
Although Rebecca continues to create ever-more evil forms of torture, err, exercise, to fill that void, the TRX continues to be a staple of our fitness diet. Because our friends on s/v Snowbird were curious about how well it could work for them, Rebecca invited them over and ran them through a sample workout.
Disclaimer: No Snowbirds were hurt during this exercise session. Flogging “might” have been threatened but not actually administered. Although no one threw up during the workout, there were some hints that it might occur. 🙂
We have heard that there might be one or two other people in the SE Grenada area who are also reading our blog on occasion. If that’s so, we would be happy to extend the same offer of a sample workout to anyone else who is interested. The only cost at this point, outside of a couple liters of sweat, is that if (when!) the time comes to invest in a TRX, it should be purchased through our affiliate link. Oh, and buying us a beer at Roger’s bar might be nice too. That sounds fair, doesn’t it?
