Boot camp style workout.

SATURDAYS always followed up with 2nd F (fellowship) at Executive Diner on Sylvania.

    Low Impact at Oasis

    Our focus will be on form, strength, balance, and flexibility. This workout can be as hard as you want it to be, but has modifications so that Pax can participate, even if they are recovering from or nursing an injury (or are maybe about to run a race). Workout will consist of cardio, deconstructed exercises, and active Yoga sequences and stretching.

    Q: Nougat
    Pax: Nougat, Patch, Bull, Jimmy Dean, Poodle, Care Bear, Wild Sprayer, Bluto

    – 5 core principles
    – Always Free
    – Always Outside (no matter rain, wind, or snow)
    – Open to all men
    – Lead by a member of the Pax in a rotation fashion
    – I am certified/ trained in Yoga, still You vs You
    – Ends in a Circle of Trust
    – Mission – “To plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership”
    – Credo – “Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you found him.”

    YHC instructed Pax that the workout was intended to be low impact and meant for Pax who are recovering from injury, or just want to give their body a break.

    An unexpected more than a dusting of snow happened overnight, so the Pax moseyed over to Start HS & used their covered patio for the workout.
