I’ve just pulled together my first training video and it’s gone down really well. Most of the people who I was expecting to take the piss out of me, have actually said they thought it was done really well. I’ll take it and if I can inspire a few other people along the way, it’s all good!
The foundation of the video was the run up to Total Warrior. Some of the training I’m doing for this event is featured in the video. I wanted the video to start slow, introduce a few motivational quotes and then nail it. The music was key. It starts with The Wheat from Gladiator and then follows The Contender. Both tracks were written by Hans Zimmer, he’s a legend in my eyes. The main focus of the video is to inspire. I wanted to get across a wide range of body movements, boxing, weight training (including kettlebells) and plenty of running. I also wanted to get across I’m not afraid of a bit of rain and I like to get creative to my workouts.
Those of you that have been following my blog will know I’m big on motivation and I swear by quotes and philosophy. When I posted this up on my Facebook page I didn’t know what reaction I’d get. The title of the video was simply “Some of you may smile. Some of you may laugh out loud. Some of you may be inspired.” Overall the response was very positive. I even had a few people private message me to say how much it inspired them. Thanks again.
