If you missed the first post about my visit to Under Armour headquarters, be sure to check it out and then come back here and read this one.
So I left off right before we were about to get our butts kicked in an awesome but tough workout wearing the new Armour 39 monitoring system. We did a circuit workout that went on and on with moves to tone the entire body. Although it was a nice cool day, I sure was pushing hard and feeling the burn.
We finished off our workout with an Under Armour cheer (Will you protect this house?!?)
Water never tasted so good.
Post workout happiness!
We took a look at our ipod touches to see what our stats were with Armour 39. I was quite pleased that I had a willpower of 8.58, I was working hard so it was nice to see the “proof” of that. We chatted a bit more about the intensity, heart rate, and other details of the system now that we had seen first hand how it works. It’s so awesome guys, I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
Something that I learned from this workout is that I have NOT been pushing the intensity like I should, except when I run. When I am running I have no problem pushing hard, but on cross training days, I tend to treat them like easy days, and I shouldn’t. This workout proved that to me, so I will be working lot harder now.
We headed back inside for a quick shower before lunch and meeting with a few of the amazing teams that work at Under Armour.
I can’t share everything I learned with you, but trust me when I say some awesome things are on the horizon for Under Armour! I was so excited to meet some of the creative minds behind he brand, it got me so pumped!
Later that afternoon we headed to our hotel.
We were spending the night at the FOUR SEASONS!
More on that later, I will leave you in suspense until tomorrow.
QOTD: Do you feel like you could up the intensity of your workouts?
