Camp Gladiator?

7 healthy Pax and one slightly injured Q showed up for a hot and humid Saturday morning stroll in the park.  A burpee twisted back kept the Q from participating in some exercises (most) but the Pax was very accommodating. The Q misremembered his speaker so the pax was burdened with the grunting and groaning […]

Six pax showed up on a beautiful morning to get their bodies ready for the day. With almost a full house of respecters, 60’s rock was the Q’s choice of music. It went off with a hitch until Simon and Garfunkel’s Sound of Silence magically appeared…Bullwinkle called it out, the Q pressed forward, and the […]

Out of the gloom, in the middle of merkins, 10 minutes into the Q, a faint voice quietly asks, “how many we doing?” At that moment, all was right with the world and the feeling of indifference disappeared. Enthusiasm returned to the 3 other Pax and the mumble chatter and workout picked up speed. He’s […]
