The Gym

Several times a week the students at the academy visited the gym. In Afrikaans it is spelled “gim” and pronounced more like “gHim”. Sometimes we had a trainer from the university’s varsity rugby team work with us and sometimes we were set free to roam the gym and train on our own. We spent most of our gym time with Andre in the Crossfit Box inside the huge, multistory, athletic facility. Every Friday we also joined the morning aqua aerobics and stretching classes.

Features coming soon
‣   A library of every workout we did with Andre and Melissa, our trainers
‣   A photo-tour of the facilities
‣   A comprehensive big calendar of the training program

Objectives, what this means for YOU
‣   
If you’re looking to emulate our training program in the gym or just a few individual workouts, you’ve come to the right place!
‣   
For those who get all googley-eyed looking at pictures of beautiful gym facilities and get really excited by adult playgrounds, I’m with you! 

One of Andre’s favorite forms of torture workouts:

Beastly: AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) for 30 minutes: 5 deadlifts, 5 hang cleans, 5 front squats, 5 push press, 10 bent over rows, 5 push ups on the bar, 10 5m shuttle runs

 

Stay tuned for more!
