2: When Life Gives You Covid-19, TRXize in Your Attic!

Adaptability and flexibility are keys to healthier and longer survival amidst large scale catastrophes and imminent pandemics!

Closure of medical schools, social distancing, and home-isolation is the ideal time for medical students to physically shape-up and to prepare for their medical board examinations!  

When are you showing your mini gym to us? Well, I read your mind, didn’t I? I’m so sorry, I just got sidetracked! Thank you for your patience! Please, come on in, and please step down to the lower level of our house where my mini gym is set-up!

Well, this is our lower level storage attic that I set-up my TRX suspension in it.  I fastened the metal base of it to the ceiling boards. Another confession; as a respect for my open-house guests, and to make the picture more esthetically pleasant, I placed a partition behind me, and chopped off the sides of the picture! To give you an inside scoop, within the past 5 months I have been working on developing certain integrated Swiss (air) ball and TRX workout activities for 60+ years folks to facilitate a longer and healthier life for them. I have coined the term “Swiss ball-N-TRX” for these integrated movements. I will keep you updated, about future development or how you may access them. Are you ready for another confession? Here we go; being at home allows me to work on perfecting the steps without anyone noticing my embarrassing falls or awkward movements! After all, and to adopt some help from George Berkeley, the Irish philosopher, “if you fall in the attic and no one is around to see you falling, you have not fallen!”. These days I try to work two to three times with my TRX suspension, and each time I spent up to 30 minutes on it.
