Our local YMCA just became licensed to teach ShockWave classes, and I am so pumped to receive my ShockWave Coach Certification.
ShockWave is basically a super-circuit workout that involves extreme cross-training. It is centered around rowing machines which in and of themselves work 9 major muscle groups in your body. There are also stations for Arms, Core, and Leg drills. ShockWave introduces healthy competition as you are part of a team and the circuit is based on distance rather than time. It is a blast! The 30 minute workout goes by so fast you never lose interest.

“[Rowing] is the densest form of cardio you can do.” Huffington Post
“The end results were that I had a great workout, literally everything was sore, I was shaking by the time I went back to work, and Shockwave has become one of my favorite classes” Vanity Fair

Today was a great workout and eating day for me. I did one 45 minute ShockWave session, then 2, 30 minute ShockWave sessions throughout the day. Followed by a Schwinn cycling certification class! Wow! I’m very tired, but very satisfied. Drank tons of water and ate small meals throughout the day…Egg white omelet before training, Gluten free energy bar, 2 apples, 1 banana, 2 handfuls of almonds, 2 wraps – 1 veggie and 1 turkey. After training treated myself (and fellow trainees) to an IPA and pizza at Thirsty Monk Brewery!
