This simple act will challenge balance along with fear. Aligning yourself on top of a narrow surface brings new meaning to #centering . You learn to use your limbs and organize in various ways to #quietthechaos .
This simple Task has done great things for my #longboardsurfing as well as #climbingpractice .
.
.
If you would like more information, or ways to build applicable strength and awareness, come learn with me this week Friday and Sunday at @latitudeclimbing_nfk and at @restorativetherapyco every Thursday night in March .
You don’t know what you don’t know, and the only sure way of not knowing, is by not doing.

I came from a world where being and looking Hard, were to means to building what was necessary to succeed. I soon found myself broken and rigid, in my body, as well as my mind, then I began to heal myself through movement. Free from judgement and expectation, I began to explore the avenues and back alleys that were not so main stream, not so well traveled. I was exposed to the grounding sensation of the earth beneath my feet and the value in how and where I placed my steps. I softened my perception of myself in order to see more clearly the areas in which I needed growth. I smeared my ego on the floor, grew out of its remnants and saw life flourish and develop from the inside out vs the outside in. Movement became my means of faith and resilience. As complex as I found it to be, i realized that each one of us is our own complex system of what was and what can be, but the present was all that is needed to bring light into the depths of who we are. I am grateful and ready to share my story with all that are willing to listen, in hopes of cracking the window to let the warm breeze of movement fill you as it has filled me.

Was great catching up with @halimonkey yesterday talking life, movement, injury. Reconnecting over zoom we spend 2 hours diving into multiple rabbit holes of physical exploration and the journey each of us has taken to get to our current state.
We found that the common thread in our development was the reality that these physical areas in which we have developed exposed areas of ourselves and others that lay deeper than what the eye can see. The fear, pain, and faith that is exposed through a practice is more valuable than most take the time to see.

Yesterday, I fell on my head from about 8 feet up and got the wind knocked out of me... Today, I woke up feeling pretty damn OK.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are officially in office and have already started pounded out some magnificent s**t. No more Keystone pipeline, no more wall, and no more workplace discrimination of people based on things they don’t need to change about themselves to fit in to someone else’s box. There are actual leaders, the kind that care about the people they lead, moving forward. I’m enthusiastically full of hope.
I also enjoyed a great conversation with an old friend and trainer today. @open.movement.practice Ben basically kept Joey and I sane for a while after our 3rd kid was old enough to take advantage of the babysitting at @wareingsgym in VB. Yes, we drove 30 min 2-3x a week so someone else would watch our kids while we did crazy ass workouts and we loved it.
.
Fast forward 8+ years. I’ve watched Ben grow in his practice, develop a different strategy and eye toward human movement. We see the same picture through different lenses. Today, we hashed it all out and threw around great ideas.
Watch for some fun stuff coming out of this...
.
So... yeah, I’m thanking my years of skateboarding for my kickass falling skills and all my hard work for my mobility and strength allowing me to summersault my way out of what could have been much worse.
Who says 40 is too old for the park? And I actually landed the trick the first time then ignored my dehydration, got greedy and let the adrenaline in me over shoot it the 2nd time.
.
I’ll be back for it next Tuesday.

This dance, this freedom, this time, this space, is mine to harness, embrace and evolve. Thank you @mtannette amd @tillermanvbfd for never limiting the scope of our potential.

The #travelingrings are not the place to start at the fitness park.
You must be able to hang before you can swing, just like you must be able to walk before you can run.
Look for ways to carry and control momentum.
Injuries tend to occur when the working systems capacity is exceeded by the work trying to be performed. Passively moving from one side to the next with as straight arms as possible is less taxing on the system than trying to maintain bent arms. This also puts the biceps at an increased risk.
Start with hanging from the small set of rings, working your way up to a single arm hang. This is the beginning of the journey. I hope this helps some people get started.

Unleash'd Strength Gym

Spring is here, or it's right around the corner, depending on how you look at it...

But these two guys, Unleash'd fitness, are already out at the Hillier Ignite Fitness Park just killing it! Thanks for the video boys, and keep them coming. Don't forget to tag Hillier Ignite and use the hashtags #vbfitnesspark and #ignitevbfitness.

We had a great time working out at Hillier Ignite Fitness Park - 36th Street, Virginia Beach! Thought we'd put together a little (hopefully) motivational video. Enjoy! "So whatever your passion, whatever your pursuit, know that true success will not come easily. But if you put in the work, if you put in the effort, you can reach success, and it WILL be worth it."

I was at the park yesterday noticed some sand has been displaced around the structures. Just out of curiosity, does anyone know why?
My 9 year old son that just loves a good jungle gym, saw these rings on Sunday night and some of the local men on them and was determined to be just like them. By the time we left on Wednesday he was enjoying himself pretty well. This park was a dream come true for him.
Hillier Ignite fitness park and VB made pg. 126 in this months issue of Women's Health. Way to go! 💪🏼👍🏼
Bright and early!
