Simplefit functional fitness

one of the coolest things about simplefit and functional fitness in general is that they make you good at sports you have never done before or have not done in a long time. Today I went rock climbing for maybe the 3rd time in my life and did pretty darn good and attribute it to simplefit whole body general conditioning. I felt light strong and confident which was very different than the times I did it years ago before simplefit. Anyway what a cool sport, rock climbing is awesome and seems to translate really well to cross training with simplefit and vice versa I think I am hooked. One more great reason to simplefit and if you simplefit and have never tried rock climbing you should check it out!

I haven't played volleyball in about a year - I am anxious to see!

I noticed it this summer while helping my father in law move a pile of top soil. Whereas before I would have been reduced to a whimpering and gasping wreck after a few wheelbarrow loads, I was able to move over half the pile and I still felt I had energy left. I even notice that I have more energy while doing mundane things like climbing a couple sets of stairs. Before I'd just plod up the stairs and now I practically run up them. This simplefit stuff is great :)
I think I'm going to wait a little longer before tackling rock climbing. I'm still a little on the heavy side and my grip isn't up to snuff yet.

Yeah, I haven't been climbing in quite some time. I bet I'd be able to jump back in and possibly do better than I did last time after only a few weeks of simplefit. My son is starting to get interested in climbing now too. Looks like a new family activity on the horizon......

Yeah I have plans for my four year old son as well but my wife is a little skeptical.

That's the time to get them started. You'd be surprised at what they can do. My son is seven and he's like a little Spiderman.

Cool I will take him this weekend, and I can use the spider man analogy to brain wash him into wanting to go :twisted:
