At times members, colleagues, and general fitness enthusiasts alike stumble across a new product and ask me for my take on it; the latest being the Smart Rope—”a high tech, new and improved jump rope empowered by LED technology and smart data.”
After watching this video, it does look like it could be a fun, new twist on jumping rope. Much like the fitbit, or some of the other new tech equipment, there is a novelty aspect to being able to link the information gathered from it to the phone or computer. It seems like the “it” thing to do. Not to say that this is bad by any means. If it helps get someone more active and provides a fun aspect to fitness, I’m all for it.

What our clients have to say about Aqua Endurance Training:
I am a very active person who enjoys working out and going to the gym. Having said that, I am always looking for different ways to sweat and get a good workout in! When I first noticed the Aqua E program, I was intrigued. I had to try it! I was a little reluctant due to the fact that I wasn’t sure of the intensity of the workout, and I wanted to make sure it was worth while. Well, it was. The intensity of the workout completely depends on what your looking to get out of it; in other words it IS for everyone. I love the variety of the exercises, and the way it makes me feel when I am done. I always thought I wasn’t a “water person” but this was great! Ryan is great too! He will put you through an awesome workout where the time flies by!!! I would absolutely recommend it to anyone; all different fitness goals or even any limitations.

I work with Ryan Holtzman in Aqua endurance. It is a great program for me. I am 71years old, with arthritic knees. This workout is strength building without the stress on my knees. I also lost 6lbs. mostly around my waist. My blood preassure is 117 over 78. Plus Ryan is a great trainer. (Vaughn Trudell, trains twice a week)
