🎃A Halloween themed workout would not be the same without 🍫🍬🍭candy and a bag with a giant hand🤚. So…. of course Saturn had candy and a giant hand on deck for the next phase of our workout. Each pax reluctantly or excitedly (you choose) took turns (although most were hoping for a starburst) reaching their paws 🐾 into the bag and pulled out a piece of Halloween Candy. The candy corresponded to an exercise. Although we had a list, I would be remiss not to mention, that Taz memorized each candy and what exercise it correlated to in about 3.2 seconds flat.

Smarties = Jump Lunges x10
Snickers = Star Jacks x10
M & M’s = Mountain Climbers x10 (I am pretty sure we did 500 mountain climbers)
Twix= Push-Ups x10
Tootsie Roll = Crunches x10
Starburst = Burpees x10
Jolly Ranchers = Pulse Squats x10

Lastly, to get in shape, so we can keep up with our kids on Halloween night we did a 5 min. Toe Tap/Toe Touch/fast feet on curb Indian Run. The Pax took turns sprinting from one end of the giant line to the next until all members had a turn. 🏃‍♀️

We ended as always in our COT, naming our FNG. Great job to Saturn Andrea Altenburg (she led her first ruck with Old School Karen Hehl this past Monday, led her first boot camp today, and is going solo on Friday). I am not sure I can endorse this type of behavior … but upon speaking to Saturn, she said “GO BIG OR GO HOME.” This may be her motto and topic of our next COT. Stay tuned!

THIS SATURDAY IS OUR FIRST FiA 5k … please check our page for details and/or reach out to Taz!

Have a Great Day Everyone!!! 💕
