Wow, just got done with a whirl wind weekend of brainstorming, working out, trouble shooting, lifting stuff, pushing stuff, more brainstorming followed by more lifting stuff.
Fellow RKC 2, Adrienne Harvey, also know as Girya Girl came up to spend the weekend with me and my family in Tallahassee. When we realized that we are the only 2 female RKC 2s in the entire state, we decided it’s probably safer not to travel together. That way if anything goes wrong, there will always be 1 female RKC 2 in Florida.
One of our goals for this weekend, was to do some business brainstorming. Adrienne possesses mad skills that I don’t have and I possess a lot of business experience that she doesn’t have. Five minutes after she walked in the door, we were at my kitchen table with laptops and notebooks. We spent a few hours planning how we could take over the world and then it was off to my gym for a workout test.
I had this “Gut Check” workout planned for my boot campers, but it had not been tested to see if it was inhumane. I decided that we would do part of the workout to get the time and also to see if we would survive.
Since there were only 2 of us, we decided on the sleds, even though my campers would be using several items for this workout. The block around my gym from my door and back is just at 3/4s of a mile. It really doesn’t seem that far…until you load up a couple of sleds. We switched off pushing and pulling for the next 45 minutes…yes, that is how long it took 2 fit girls to get around the block.
Then it was back home to a well deserved steak dinner cooked by my husband, Rick followed by more brainstorming until about 1:00 am.
Sunday we went back to the gym. This is where the magic happened. We took time to evaluate each others form on certain exercises. Mine were pull ups, pistol squats and presses. Adrienne was able to see things in my form that I needed to work on so that I can improve. Sometimes it’s hard to swallow your pride and accept help and I think it’s even harder to do when you are already a trainer. My desire to get better and stronger is much more important than my pride. Another great tool is having someone video tape your form. My body was saying, “YEAH, good form”, but the video said otherwise. I was grooving patterns that felt right but were oh so wrong.
We wrapped up the day with more brainstorming on our businesses. Again, having another set of eyes is invaluable. Adrienne left late afternoon and although I was pretty exhausted, I was filled with excitement over the possibilities of progressing in my strength and building up my business.
Combing our powers to take over the world
