Nerves and Concussions: The Arnold Classic is Coming!

Fit Board Fusion is just barely a year old and we signed up to attend one of the largest fitness expositions in the country - even the world.  AHHHH! We anticipated an exciting event full of energy and enthusiasm. Noone anticipated that a car accident would so deeply affect our ability to serve and energize our customers.

FBF has found some wonderful supporters in the organizers and friends of the Arnold Classic. We appreciated their support in providing timely feedback and information as we prepared during those last days before the Expo (between bouts of excessive concussion-related sleep!)  However, event with all the support, I faced the day with some trepidation.

At its base, FBF is all about core muscles, stabilization and balance. For the record, the whiplash combined with my concussion severely inhibited me from performing some of our "inspiring" exercises.  Thankfully, I had helpers scheduled throughout the weekend- but the plan all along depended primarily on me to explain and demonstrate exercises for potential clients and trainers.

Before the event started, we mapped out a new game plan. Stay tuned to see how it went...
