This February 8th, all the way from Amsterdam, The Flowing Dutchman will be putting on an 8 hour Fitness workshop on the Steel Mace and other functional movements. These types of seminars highlighting different ways to reach your fitness goals will be routinely done here at Critical Mass. You can find out more/sign up below:
Jersey Shore Mace did some work here at Critical Mass this past weekend. This event was 2+ hours filled with information regarding the Mace and all it can be used for. The Mace is a tool once used for killing, but now we use for fitness. First being brought to light within social media, by ONNIT and then developed further by a crew of fitness professionals like Ken Potis, Leo Savage and Fred Mohr. Ken Potis started Mace training 3 years ago and took it to another level and developed a workout that actually burns more calories than the boot camps and other group classes here at the Jersey Shore. That’s why we incorporate this into our classes and is one of the featured tools used in the Lift. Swing. Flow. Fitness Challenge starting this January 5th 2020 here in Tinton Falls, New Jersey.
Getting fit and staying healthy is hard but if you surround yourself with motivating people and trust their methods, you will see results. This tool along with everything else offered is a great way to reach your goals. Trust the process. Know it will take some time, but you will have fun.
Critical Mass member Gabriel Chajnik is a Master Instructor and Director of Choreography at the Axelrod Contemporary Ballet Theater. This is the second member with deep interests in Ballet. The other is Connor Meadrow who is a student at Rumson Fairhaven High School and trains here also. Gabriel made his way to our gym following trainer Scott Clayton. Keeping focus on health and fitness after a career of dance is a priority for Gabriel. In speaking with him, I found out a whole new world of Arts are right in my backyard. There are tons of shows happening through the winter and spring months of 2019. The Axelrod Contemporary Ballet Theater is located at 100 Grant Ave, Deal Park, New Jersey. I plan on attending and maybe you should too! The Nutcracker is next on their list.
A holiday event for the whole family, The Nutcracker ROCKS is a mixture of high-power music and dance that will transport you to a land of brave toy soldiers and sweet sugar plum fairies. Based on Hoffman’s original story, choreographer Gabriel Chajnik translates the Victorian-era Nutcracker from the bustles and ruffles of the 1890s to contemporary times in this premiere from the Axelrod Contemporary Ballet Theater. Clara’s rocker Uncle Drosselmeier shakes things up when he shows up to a distinguished Manhattan holiday party with his electric guitar and his amazing toys, igniting the imagination of people young and old. The beloved Tchaikovsky score is reimagined in collaboration with renowned rocker Alex Levine, a member of The Gaslight Anthem. The Nutcracker ROCKS is destined to become a Jersey Shore staple for many holidays to come.
