Working Out with Navy SEALs
Thanks to retired SEAL Commander Bruce Willhite (on the right holding the flag in the picture below)for leading an outstanding workout yesterday in Riverbend Park with four fit SEALs and a Marine. It was a privilege to spend time with these Vets on Memorial Day weekend.
Bruce runs a smooth and efficient functional fitness session that mixes strengthening and flexibility for core, hips, and shoulders. The guys below show how it’s done.
When people hear the word SEAL they conjure up images of grueling, extreme bootcamp routines. It’s true SEAL training is the most demanding because a super high level of fitness is crucial for survival and mission success. But Bruce takes the basic training principles and makes them fun and applicable for everyone.
What you’ll discover is you can get an incredible workout with basic body weight exercise. You get stronger, burn fat, and increase your resilience. You don’t need a gym with all the latest machines. You just need a little willpower and discipline and work on the basics.
Working out hard is a lot more fun when you are with a group sharing the same challenges, especially in such a beautiful setting.
Bruce plans to be in Riverbend Park (near the Kayak sculpture) every Saturday at 9 am all summer long. He also plans to add some cool aerobics after the SEAL PT workout like biking, running, maybe even paddle boarding.
We’ll be there next week to join in. Hope you are too!
