I’m only 32 years old.
That’s not old.
In fact, some will tell me that I’m young. Even the 35 year old mom’s that are only 3 years older than I, who make sure everyone knows that they’re getting older to make themselves feel better, still say I’m a “youngin”.
You know who you are.
Everyone always says, “Age is just a number.” or “You’re only old if you tell yourself you’re old.”
Quite frankly, the main thing is that we get older everyday and our bodies are the vehicle. Some people say you are as old as you act, but I know some pretty irresponsible and need I say, stupid, older people. But day by day your bones, muscles, skin, joints, and organs are getting older. Unfortunately, we can’t help that and we have to protect our vehicles.
So even though I’m only 32, I was once 21, and as most of you know it is a whole hell of a lot different. I used to be the young prick saying, “Pfft. I’ll never be old.” Then I pounded a Muscle Milk and squatted 405 pounds and went out clubbing that night thinking that I would stay young forever.
I can remember being a young trainer with zero experience thinking that age is just a number. I had 50 year olds breaking their backs dead-lifting and implemented zero recovery process. I had no judgment on the individual. That’s what trainers lack. Making a workout is easy, but can you program it to the body type the person has?
I didn’t start dwelling on this until I had help. I always focused on injuries and preventing them, but I did it based on the group. Thankfully, I have 3 other trainers and many clients of mine that can help me program to the individual.
You’re not old, but as we get older, we have to start doing things to our bodies to prepare us for the future. This year has taught me that. I’ve been put under anesthesia 4 times, been in the hospital for heart valve issues, and haven’t been able to exercise. First time in my life that I have felt “old”.
These are some things that I recommend to 21 year olds or 55 year olds, just to protect themselves from their bodies actually getting older than their minds.
What are Jungle Gym’s workouts like?
We have four weeks that we cycle through. In order for us to be a results-based program, we modify weeks to cater to different training types. The first two weeks are geared towards strength training and being a badass with weights. One week is focused on Muscle Building, while the other focuses on pure Strength. Both help each other out on their respective weeks.
The next two weeks are conditioning and endurance-based. We have a week called “Yard Work Week”, which is many clients’ favorite. Everyone works with a team, and I give each team “chores” they try to complete in a certain amount of time. Recovery Week is the fourth week and is geared totally towards bodyweight exercises, which takes the compression of additional weight off our spine. This may be the hardest week physically.
Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday workouts are geared toward skill sets. I wake up and ask myself, “What do we need to work on today?” It may be speed, agility, strength, barbell complexing, pull-ups, yoga, etc.
That’s the program, and I’m sticking to it.
Is Jungle Gym anything like CrossFit?
Meh. Yes and no. If you mean, do we do burpees, deadlifts, and the row machine? Then yes.
However, there are many differences. We don’t do any Olympic lifting. We also don’t have a “beat the clock” method. We don’t modify exercises to make you finish them quicker. We rarely ever spend one day focusing on a certain lift.
However, we do have an extreme enthusiasm for fitness. We work in groups. We try our hardest. We sometimes have calluses.
Other than that, I’d say Jungle Gym is pretty original and not comparable to CrossFit.
Should I do anything outside of Jungle Gym’s program?
We have programs within the programs to fit your needs. I recommend Cardio Challenges and Burnout Weeks to fill our calorie-burn needs. For those looking to muscle-build, I write specific body part workouts to excel on during off hours.
The main thing that people need to focus on outside of Jungle Gym is the opposite of lifting more. It’s actually recovering more quickly. Therefore, I am pounding the practice of mobility, foam rolling, stretching, hot/cold therapy, and recovery during off time. Muscles can’t grow unless they are recovered.
Do you provide nutrition?
Most definitely. Any program that involves a cookie-cutter diet plan or no diet plan at all is a bad program to me. Nutrition must fit your build and your activity levels.
Jungle Gym has four nutrition programs called “Transformations” that we select for our clients. Muscle Building, Muscle Maintenance, Weight Loss, and Extreme Weight Loss. Each client is given a menu and a certain amount of macros depending on the Transformation they choose. We do four blasts a year of Transformations for accountability reasons. There is just something so motivating and supportive about doing a diet with 40 other people rather than by yourself.
I always tell people, “Your cooking game has to be stronger than your lifting game.”
What are four things about Jungle Gym that are overlooked?
Ok, I’ve honestly never been asked this question, but I think it’s crazy important.
1.) We are results-based. If you aren’t getting results, we examine what’s going on. Each and every workout we are trying to improve, and Jungle Gym thrives off of improvement.
2.) Community is strength. If drinking Kool-Aid and joining a family atmosphere is wrong, then just call me the Kool-Aid Man. We love each other and working out with the crew is something we all look forward to, especially when Drew and I are having temper-tantrums.
3.) You meet people. We aren’t a dating site, but you literally will make best friends. The amount of time I spend with people inside the gym correlates to outside of the gym too. It’s a great bond we all share, even if we sit around a bonfire one night talking about how awful the Finisher was that day.
4.) We are risk-takers. We promote healthy, quality lifting and we firmly believe that with risks, there are huge rewards. If we ask you to make the lift more intense, it’s because we care about your rewards, not because we want to hurt you. The other factors in the program such as our warm-ups, stretching, showcases, and form demonstrations are what keep us from turning a risk into a disaster. In any program, the less injuries the better, and Jungle Gym has excelled each year in improving that number. A healthy person is a happy person.
What are your certifications?
I may not have the entire alphabet behind my name, but I have held three certifications in fitness before. ACE, NESTA, and ISSA.
I do not have a degree; therefore I cannot get my CSCS, unfortunately.
My best certification though, is 12 years of experience in training. I have been training people for twelve years and have accumulated all of my research, studying, and progress into a program that works the best. I hated college. It just wasn’t for me, but I’ll be damned if I let a degree hold me back from doing what I love.
Currently, I am really focusing on specific certifications like Kettlebells, Speed and Agility, Functional Movements, Supplementation, and Nutrition. These are generally known by the average trainer, but you learn so much more during these certifications it’s ridiculous. You know why? Because the people who teach these certifications have put in 25 years of experience in their fields. They may or may not have degrees, but they are the best at what they do. In March, I will be Kettlebell, Mace, Sandbag, Speed and Agility, Nutrition, Supplementation, and TRX Certified and will be looking to add on a mobility certification once I find the right one.
I can think back to all of the certifications I had in the past years (and spent thousands of dollars on) and I don’t remember one thing. Specialty ones are so much more appropriate for my field because these people care and teach it directly to you instead of making you read a 400-page book on your own.
Can beginners take the class?
Sure can. We have a nine-exercise beginner prerequisite that we put people through. You have to master the squat, lift, push, pull, power generation, crawl, jump, Bruce Lee, and get-up.
I’ll let my rookies know; “If you perform a year’s worth of bad bodyweight squats, then hurt yourself on one heavy squat, you can’t blame that one heavy squat. You have to blame the year’s worth of crappy squatting.”
Our goal is to nip that in the butt before injury occurs. We send you on a two-week beginner course, and then we put you through a one-month “boot camp” phase where we test your limits. After that, we should know your strengths and weaknesses enough to involve you in the rest of the program.
What if I am out of shape?
Simple. Jungle Gym is a program to GET YOU in shape. Therefore, if you’re out of shape, it’s perfect for you.
“I want to get in shape before I take your class.”
That’s not how it works.
I’m too old for the class.
Nonsense, poopy-pants! The age range of Jungle Gym is 18 to 75. Yes, I train a 75-year-old woman. Needless to say, she doesn’t do the heavy lifting and impact exercises like the 20-year-olds do, but she is in there for her benefits. I currently have two clients over 60 and 25 clients over 50. Age should not be an issue to stick your head in the door and give us a try.
I have a bum shoulder.
I will never diagnose you. I would be an awful trainer if I did. However, once diagnosed, I am very aware of ranges of motion to avoid or to strengthen. Shoulders are often injured in all types of fitness, not just Jungle Gym. They are the foundation of the upper body and over-trained. We promote a healthy shoulder program in Jungle Gym. We use mobility exercises to keep shoulders healthy, and if needed, avoid the overtraining lifts like presses, pull-ups, and handstand positions.
It’s not just shoulders either. If your hip bothers you, I’ll send you to my recommended orthopedic guy. He will send you back with a diagnosis, and we will go over your therapy or recovery schedule. It’s simple. However I will never, EVER diagnose your problems.
If a trainer ever tells you what’s wrong with you, run away.
Will Jungle Gym help me with my running program?
Most definitely. Many marathon runners take Jungle Gym. It’s some of the best lung capacity training you will ever get. If people have a running goal like a marathon, we keep them in full participation of the program and add a long distance running day and a short run during the week. The week prior to the event, we back off of training and work on getting their legs accumulated to the actual distance they are taking on.
What is Jungle Gym’s history?
Jungle Gym will be 5 years old on April 1st and it’s at its peak. I remember being told at a conference I attended in Denver that a workout program won’t be at its strongest until it hits 5 years. That being said, Jungle Gym is the strongest, most effective, and injury-free it’s ever been.
Thank you everyone who has stuck with me for 5 years, and for those of you who are about to jump on board . . . get ready for one hell of a ride!
What is your favorite style of training?
Me, personally? I’m a power lifter at heart (squat, dead, and bench). However, when I practiced that the most, I was also left beat up the most. So now I love mobility and stretching, conditioning workouts that make me feel like I’m in a pool of tears, and lifting as heavy as possible.
What supplements do you recommend?
One of the best partnerships I have come across is my collaboration with Core Nutritionals. My representative, Carl, is the most knowledgeable man I’ve ever met when it comes to supplementation.
The great thing about Carl is that he is a pure bodybuilder and understands Jungle Gym’s program. He has set a supplement program with us that covers all of our basic needs. It just so happens that his brand is Core Nutritionals, and they are one of the fastest growing supplement companies on the East Coast. They are scientifically ahead of the game. They use natural ingredients with no artificial sweeteners or colors. They promote healthy living, rather than just being as big as possible.
Currently I am on their Joint Care called Flex, their natural testosterone booster and cortisol depressant, their BCAA, and their meal replacement powders for when I travel. They are incredible.
What is the difference between a Hex Bar Deadlift and a Conventional Deadlift?
A hex bar is a side-loaded deadlift that we use for beginners, elderly, and those who need to work on form. It’s not flawless, but the position you are put in makes for an almost perfect attempt at deadlifting.
Once we translate that form to a barbell, it becomes easier to understand form. That’s why everyone can hex bar dead more than they can barbell dead.
Hex bars teach you the straight line you need to lift the bar upwards and the leg drive that is needed. It’s a no-brainer in anyone’s program.
We also use hex bars to strengthen deadlifts. No matter if you’ve been deadlifting for 10 years or one year, adding a hex bar into your training will help strengthen all the necessary muscles that you may be neglecting on the straight bar.
What is Quicksand?
Keep in mind I have been working in a big gym for a little over 11 years. I’m used to ellipticals, stairclimbers, and recumbent bikes. Not rowers and Air Dynes. Since those came on to the CrossFit scene, they have taken cardio by storm. I completely agree with those facets, but who’s to say an elliptical can’t kick your ass?
It can. And it’s called Quicksand. Maybe one of the hardest cardiovascular machines I’ve stepped foot in. There is an elliptical machine called the Octane that Jungle Gym thrives on. If you bump the resistance up to 15, it feels like your drudging through quicksand. It’ll make a grown man cry.
Do you do Spartan training?
Hell yeah! Have you ever dragged a fire hose? That’s some of the best Spartan training available. Whether you are training for a mud run, to be a firefighter, or just to get dirty all the time, you should check out our junkyard. It’s full of hoses, tires that we name after Disney characters, sleds, and a slope to run up and down.
What is your schedule?
Monday: 5AM, 6AM, 7AM, 9AM, 12PM, 430PM, 530PM, 630PM
Tuesday: 5AM, 6AM, 7AM, 9AM
Wednesday: 5AM, 6AM, 7AM, 9AM, 12PM, 430PM, 530PM, 630PM
Thursday: 5AM, 6AM, 7AM, 530PM-Kettlebells
Friday: 5AM, 6AM, 7AM, 9AM, 12PM, 430PM, 530PM
Saturday: Open Gym – 8AM to 1030AM
How much do you cost?
$120 a month, plain and simple. However, if you sign a 4-month commitment with me, your first three months are only $80.
What is Open Gym?
Open Gym is probably the most undervalued part of Jungle Gym.
I am in the Jungle from 8AM to 1030AM with a workout on the board. You can show up whenever you want and I’ll explain the workout to you, or we can work on something specific that you want to focus on (like speed, strength, or even pull-ups).
This is a big opportunity to go over stretching and diet plans also.
Every other Saturday we have a Showcase. Those Showcases involve deadlifting, mobility, squats, cleans, and self-defense (coming in February).
What kind of coffee do you like just in case I want to bring you one everyday?
Why thank you! I like hot black coffee in the morning, and cold black coffee around 3PM. The bigger the better.
Contact myself at email@example.com or on the Facebook page. I’d love to answer all of your questions and coffee orders.
This is where your body changes,
Let’s say you’re a baseball player training ridiculously hard for the playoffs and ultimately the World Series. You wake up early, eat with no desire to slow down your body, and you go hard in the gym. You put in the work and bring home the trophy.
That’s the easy part.
“The task ahead of you should never be as great as the support behind you.”
Six years ago I was fired from my personal training job for being a cocky prick. Kicked out of my apartment. Traveled across the country with my aspirations of becoming a police officer. Was denied that dream. Came back and tried again around here. Denied again. Moved into my parents’ house with no money, got a job at a local Bally’s Fitness as a sales manager, and it was the worst job I’ve ever had in my life.
One day I was working out in my old gym that I used to train for and my old boss came up to me and said, “Do you want a job?”
Knowing that this was the same boss who fired me some-years ago I replied, “Sure.”
He gave me a position as a front desk attendant. He purposely gave me jobs of cleaning toilets. Picking up trash outside. Shoveling snow. Anything to make me a better person. After one year of going through that hell, because my true passion was training people or law enforcement, I finally walked into his office.
I looked at him and said, “You are wasting me here behind this desk. I’m better than saying ‘hello’ and ‘goodbye’ to people.”
“What do you want?”, he said.
“I want to train. I want to help people.”
He gave me a shot and within a couple months, I built a 6AM program up 3 days a week from 4 people to 20 people. I stormed back into his office.
I said, “I want to create Jungle Gym.”
Little did I know, with that little support from a person who terminated me in the past and a couple of faces in the dirt, that I could live the American dream and get paid for what I absolutely love to do.
The feeling of helping people stupefies me. This weekend stupefied me even more.
Stupefy – verb:
As in, “This weekend was stupefying.”
This weekend was full of mind-boggling amazement of a group coming together. Jungle Gym hosted it’s first annual Jungle Gym Charity Golf Tournament. We raised $1,743 in that said tournament. That feeling. . .that stupefying feeling of coming together for a goal is breathtaking.
It got me thinking. What other stupefying feelings have I experienced? It all led me to this list. Maybe it can motivate another person somewhere across the country or right next door to be a part of a group that gives incentives to helping other people reach great potentials. The great thing is that myself and my clients can do it through the art of fitness.
Not all of these moments involve the accomplishments of charity, but if I had to rank the top 10 moments of Jungle Gym, it would definitely be in this order.
The Second Annual Jungle Gym Charity Golf Tournament is Friday, September 30th. The shotgun time will start at 12PM. This will allow some of us to be able to work half days if need be, but if you can, try and take off the whole day. The tournament will be at Newport News Deer Run Golf Course.
This will be an event for all people, Jungle Gym and non-Jungle Gym. You can create your own team, or you can sign up as a single and we will assign you a team. The style of the game will be a Captain’s Choice.
The format of Captain’s Choice is simple. Each team member tees off and proceeds to the spot of the best drive where everyone hits their next shot. This continues until the ball is holed. This is great for many reasons. It gives beginner players a chance to feel like a pro, and what’s better than sinking birdies and drinking . . . water :-).
When you register, you can sign up as a single ($60) or as a team ($240). Once you click the “BOOK” button on the registration link, there is a toggle at the top to sign up as a “SINGLE” or “GROUP OF 4”. If you sign up as a GROUP OF 4, I will contact you to get the names of the people on your team. If you sign up as single, you will be place on a team.
Each registration will be $60 and will include all fees for greens, carts, scoring, bag-loading, reffing and range balls. Food and beverage is bought on your own accord. Outside beverages are not permitted, but there will be plenty of cute cart girls passing around frosty drinks.
The charities we will be playing for with be:
The Boys and Girls Club of Newport News
The Jungle Gym Charity Fund – goes in helping a member’s family
Hotdoghill Sanctuary – a place for special needs for dogs
PeacePlayers – a charity dedicated to bringing culturally divided people together through sports.
Active Heroes – reaches out to active service members, veterans and their families to help them heal both physically and mentally through simply being active.You will be able to choose which charity you donate to upon purchase of raffles and mulligan packages.
At the beginning of play, you can purchase mulligans, ball throws, and other handicaps. These purchases will be given straight to charity. There will be 3 vendors each at holes 1, 9, 10, and 18. Each vendor will have a raffle and free samples/advertisement for their brand. These raffles will be donated to charity. At the end of tournament get together, we will also auction off a big item towards charity.
Winners of the tournaments will win prizes donated to the event, but that’s not it! We will have an after party set up at Jungle Gym’s sponsor restaurant (County Grill starting at 6:30) to announce the winners, the raffles, and the auction. It’s going to be a great day of fun, golf, charity, and good times. Please register and come support the local community.
The last day you can register will be September 25th! You will receive an email that day describing all the events details including mulligan packages, raffle instructions, prizes, and much more.
Take off work! Register! Start recruiting! Practice your swing!
Lately I’ve been feeling burned out. Exhausted. Unmotivated (crazy, right?).
When I get like this, sometimes I take a step back, rest, and blame it all on the physical work that I do. My “burnout vacations” have me coming back feeling the same though. I come back still tired with just a smaller to-do list because I spend my break catching up on things I don’t get to do at home.
If I give my body a break, why is it not responding?
I’ll tell you why.
It wasn’t my body. It was my mind. I have not been trying to do anything to strengthen my mind. My medulla has not been oblongata’d.
I have been beating the crap out of myself with kettlebells for years now. I’ve been training at least 4 to 5 days a week for about 12 years now. I know I’m getting older, but I made a pledge to myself that I will be more in shape when I’m 30 than I was at 20 years old. Based off my strengths and decreasing weaknesses, this has held true. So I’m not going to blame it on Mufasa (our 700 pound monster truck tire) or my sleds for why I feel burned out. Also, why have I not named my sleds yet?
You probably can tell that I am an extreme introvert. It doesn’t mean that I am sadistically wild. It just means I gather my energy from different sources. So mentally I have come up with a list of things that I feel you should work on. Once I have started doing these, I have instantly felt the pressure come off of my joints and muscles. Now I feel fresh and ready like a whole new me (*enter Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner joke here*). I can actually start adding some workouts back into the mix.
Before I let you in on my secret spices, make sure you realize that rest is all based off of how YOU recover your muscles. Do you take the time out of your day to treat your muscles with care? Foam rolling. Stretching. Yoga. Icing your sore joints. Heating your sore muscles. Long walks.
I guarantee you that these brain fuels I give you will help in this too.
1.) Meditation – Find yourself the comfiest chair in your household. Set an alarm for 30 minutes and turn your phone on silent. Turn off your lights and unplug everything that makes noise. Lock your pets up for a few. Do what you need to do to find complete silence. To be honest, I looked at meditation as a completely different science before I started. I thought it was something you did with your legs crossed in weird directions as you hummed a hymn.
It’s not. It’s euphoric. Close your eyes and think of nothing. You’ll have random thoughts here and there, but meditation gives you a chance to clear your mind and relax. Hell, I thought about this whole blog post on one meditation session. Before you categorize meditation as some Thai Chi ritual . . . don’t. It’s an amazing source of mind strength. Once you accomplish two weeks of 30 minute meditation sessions by yourself, try making a soothing playlist. I promise you will crave meditating after awhile.
If you’d like to chat with me more on this in detail, ask me after class hours.
2.) Read – I’m not going to lie. I hate books. I’m the type of guy that loses interest in stories. This would probably explain why I have never watched all of the Harry Potter’s or played video games when I was younger. However, I do love to read.
Take 30 minutes out of your day to read something and expand your knowledge. I love reading blogs and magazine articles about fitness (go figure). Most of the stuff I read is complete bologna, but that helps too. It helps me to pick good information from the bad information. It gives you a different language to use when teaching people something. Andrew (Jungle Gym’s other amazing trainer) has a different language than I do. We may teach the same product, but sometimes it’s easier for you to understand how he explains it than I do.
Reading will take care of some mind blocks and hopefully save you $100 on a cable bill.
3.) Write -“Dear Diary,
Geoff pissed me off so bad this morning. He made we power swing a heavier bell and then he told me that my form looked good. What a d**k!”
I know all of you have thought about this in the session. First you get frustrated but then after the frustration is released, you see the good side of things. Writing can help you release this.
Writing will let you write drown the bad, then process it into good. You don’t have to start a blog or write a book. If you just buy a 99 cent composition notebook and wrote down your thoughts for 15 minutes a day, I guarantee your mind will strengthen. It will release a lot of the bad thoughts that are 99% useless and leave you more room to introduce the good.
4.) Detox Your Liver – 80% of all things consumed in your body pass through the liver. Two main things that I am really watching my intake on nowadays is artificial sweeteners and food dyes.
I know it’s tough, but during this detox, it’d be smart to stop consuming alcohol. Once alcohol hits the liver, it shuts down completely, leaving everything else that needs to be distributed in your blood stream at a standstill. We all love our beers and spirits, but I highly encourage you to try a liver detox of all alcohol, food dyes, and artificial sweeteners for two weeks and tell me if you feel less stressed about it. The results are quite epic.
5.) Stretch – Oy vay! So many people focus on the sexy part of fitness like abs and arms, but yet fail to realize that fitness is not sexy. If fitness was sexy, you would walk into a room and walk out with the body of your dreams. Fitness is boring. So is stretching, but honestly, it’s a necessity.
When was the last time you were frustrated that you couldn’t land a box jump or that you couldn’t get a dead lift set? I can guarantee that 90% of the problem lied in a mobility issue.
Granted this is coming from a guy who pretty much lives at a gym and stretches about 1 hour a day, but for a big buffoon like myself, I can out flex most women. To me, stretching is a physical rendition of meditation. It lets you understand your body more. If you can feel your body’s limits, then you have a better chance of pushing them to the limits instead of standing there when things get tough.
I’ve yelled it across the gym and I’ll continue to yell it again.
“Everyone wants to lift heavy ass weights, but nobody wants to do no heavy ass stretching.”
This should be close to the number one thing you do in the morning after you brush your teeth, brew your coffee, and check the Jungle Gym website for updates. Once again, for more info on stretching, Drew and I can easily set up a stretching program for you.
6.) Money – When was the last time you actually kept track of money? How much did you spend on food this month?
Stop spending so much. One of the top stressors in the world is definitely finances for some people. Go two weeks without spending any money on fast food or restaurant food. This doesn’t mean not to go see the newest flick or concert. It means, be cautious of where your hard earnings go. You work hard for your money. You have the right to do with it whatever you want. However, taking away all the dollar signs that jump the fences in your dreams at night may help you sleep better.
7.) 5-AT – Cortisol levels are HUGE in fitness. Having too much cortisol in your body can be a game changer. There’s a natural supplement called 5-AT. It’s a proven cortisol depressant. I recommend you grab some, whether you think your stress levels are high or not.
Here’s what the stress hormone cortisol causes in your body: Low blood pressure, nausea, extreme fatigue, weakness, lack of concentration, unexplained weight gain, depression, and painful muscles and joints.
If that’s how you’re feeling, then maybe it’s not last night’s workout. It may be the way you treat your brain.
Next time, before you blame your somber moods and sore bodies on training too much, reconsider your mental lifestyle. Is your mind fatigued?
This is where your body changes,
Geoff Morehart, Owner and Founder of Jungle Gym Newport News LLC.
