Last year we published a blog called “What is Healthy?” (if you missed it and are curious, you can read it here), with the basic message being that many people struggle with setting specific targets if they aren’t participating in a sport or event that has a tangible measure, and wind up asking “Am I fit? How can I tell?”.
You see, everyone needs goalposts – otherwise you wind up wandering (both in fitness and in life), but not everyone WANTS to participate in a marathon or play on a rec-league soccer team. So, once they get beyond certain basic health markers, they find themselves at a bit of a loss.
And this is what the Iron Legion offers you: the chance to set personal goals based on specific benchmarks – in other words, you can test yourself and see where you stand (relative to your own age, weight and gender), and tangibly mark the necessary steps to achieve the next level up.
There are six tested categories in the standard assessment – push, pull, squat, hinge, core and conditioning – with an additional “Endurance” category that can be earned along the way.
Interested? Here are a few more details to help you decide if you’d like to jump on board:
Who is this program good for?
Who would this program NOT be a good fit for?
What is the difference between a “grade” and a “level”?
When are the tests?
Why are there so many kettlebell skills involved?
Okay, this sounds awesome – what’s the cost?
