On some Wednesdays, a small, informal group of older exercisers gather in the park, just north and down the hill from the tennis courts at the Juniper Swim and Fitness Center in Bend. Our focus on developing speed, agility, and power.
We call ourselves the Black Knights after the hilarious character in the Monty Python movie ”Holy Grail” who continues to fight despite having his arms and legs cut off. In the video below showing highlights from one of our workouts, you’re seeing people aged 59-70 who’ve all had one or more surgeries to shoulders, knees, and wrists. One has an artificial hip.
If you are fit and looking for a new challenge, you are welcome to join us. Our rules are simple: 1) Know your limits, (2) Nobody gets hurt, and (3) Slow down or stop if you get too tired to do an exercise with good form. Black Knights workouts are physically challenging and pretty fast-paced.
We do this for fun. It is not a competition.
Participation is free. We supply equipment. The mix of exercises changes from week to week.
You are welcome to come watch a Black Knights workout to see if it might help you reach your fitness goals. Contact: info@cascadeboomerfitness,com if you have questions.
Caution: These workouts are for experienced exercisers who know what exercises are contra-indicated for them for any existing physical limitation, such as an old injuries or chronic illness. This is not personal training. You assume all responsibility for your participation.
