Alright current Rebels and future Rebels, it’s time to plant some more positive seeds! This time, we’re getting youthful… With the popularity of “mud run” events like Warrior Dash, Tough Mudder, Spartan Race, and many more growing with each passing month I decided it was time to create our very own youth group of Mud Rebels. With my partner in crime Erik “The Punisher” Sherwood, we’ve partnered with the Town of Windsor to devise a 3 day experience centered around fitness fundamentals, teamwork, positive mindset, and “heart first” leadership culminating in a custom designed mud run course!
Day 1 (8/12/2013 – Monday): Introductions! We will all learn who each other are through dialogue mixed with some team building exercises. This day we will go over all the inductions that come with being a rebel including; The sound-off, the “battle cry” before every workout, what it means to be a fitness rebel, and what is expected. We will also be covering the fitness fundamentals that we will utilize to the fullest over our 3 day adventure!
Day 2 (8/13/2013 – Tuesday): “Training Day.” This is the day where the kids REALLY find out what they’re made of. They will learn how to perform Rebel staples such as “4 Horsemen,” “4 Corporals,” and “En4cers” as well as a thorough balance, stability, and body mechanic break down all done in an easy-to-retain manner so that the kids have a BLAST while they work harder than they ever imagined. I believe in “you plant a positive seed, you get a positive flower” as the core behind all that we Rebels do, so the encouragement will be nothing but the best! Expect your kids to sleep well tonight! They’re going to need it for the course on day 3…
Day 3 (8/14/2013 – Wednesday): The day of the 1st ever “Rebel Mud Run!” The kids will be warmed up and primed for the course at hand. After being walked through what to expect, then they get the opportunity to go for it! This is the day where the kids WILL get muddy, so be prepared! All obstacles will be monitored and safe, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be challenging! At the end, they will be gifted a token of their accomplishment so they will always have something to remember their experience by.
