Every week for the past 14 weeks, I volunteer my time to my church, The Church of Rancho Bernardo, by bringing group fitness to them.  I had been struggling for months on how I could get involved within my church and not just attending service week to week. I honestly didn't think my idea of bringing a boot camp style fitness program was going to fly but OH MY GOODNESS. . .it really took off!

This week I wanted to share this fantastic warm-up that my fellow trainer LJ Eastmead has introduced us to.  You need at least 7 people to do this warm-up.  It's a great way to start a workout, get people to connect, increase everyone's heart rates and fire up those muscles! 

You will need a leader to tell the group which way to go and one person to chase and catch the leader.  Have the group do this exercise about 4 times and you will see them warm up immediately! Try it and see how much your group will enjoy it!

I love this group.
