When EPIC started, my goals and vision weren’t more than what workout can I devise each day that is going to kick my ass in the best way possible while being scalable for everyone to participate in. How can I make my body a full-blown machine where I do not need too much workout gear while still feeling like I received the workout of a lifetime? How can I create synergy in a group fitness atmosphere where everyone is enhancing the experience? These are still questions I asks myself everyday concerning EPIC and what I love most is that I always feel challenged. The fitness industry is a competitive one and trends come and go very quickly. If you decide to build a weak-ass foundation on gimmicks and hocus pocus, the journey will be short, and is going to end badly.
What my team and I have tried our best to do is tap into people’s mindsets and do our best to re-wire what people think an “epic” workout really is. I have done workouts where my body is beat to shit and I can’t move for days. I used to consider this an “epic” workout. My swollen joints, awkward gait, and back pain used to be considered a badge of honor. The truth is that it was just fucking stupid. I now have 4 standards when considering a workout to be “epic”
So I guess I have been dodging the question at the start of this blog post….What the Hell EPIC INTERVAL Training? I’ll spare you the salesmen (Go to epicintervaltraining.com/hayes-valley for our generic answer) answer and let you know what EPIC Interval Training is to me:
EPIC Interval Training is a group fitness, all-encompassing workout that seriously changes lives, especially mine. I have never put myself first when answering this question, but the truth is that the program started with me and I’ve lived this program from day 1. I have been fortunate enough to make life long friends and enhance people’s lives doing what I love most…How many people can say that?
So have I explained what EPIC is all about? Probably not, so just watch this video if you are still interested.
