We’ve talked about a lot things around here over the years, but never fitness – even though it’s another major passion of mine! An athlete and general health enthusiast for my entire life, I never turn away from an opportunity to try something new. It’s really the only way to keep working out interesting, right?
I’ve attempted everything from Bikram yoga, to Pilates to CrossFit to marathon running and most options in between. But it wasn’t until moving to San Francisco that I discovered GYROTONICS at a health and wellness studio called A Body of Work.
What first appeared to me like a medieval torture device turned out to be a really incredible invention that lets you work muscle tone, flexibility, balance and get your heart rate up all at the same time.
Working one-on-one with a trainer for hour long sessions, you go through a series of movements using pulleys, cranks and your own body weight that work everything from arms to abs to legs to butt. You know, the important parts!
