Time: 60 minutes
Amoeba Tag (from Outdoor Fitness Games)
Two people are “it”. They hold hands and chase the other participants. The person that they catch then joins the chain by linking hands. When another person is caught they can stay together or split 2 and 2 but they must split into even numbers and can link together at will. This game is played until no one is left. The last two become “it” for the next game.
Tony Stark has a lot of money. Like his money today’s workout involves a lot of repetitions.
As a group clients will rotate around a circuit (1 minute on each) trying to complete as many repetitions as possible in their minute. The goal is (as a group) to reach a total of reps on each exercise. The group keeps rotating until the goal is met.
Clients should add up the total reps performed by their group and write it down on the score card before going to the next exercise. Once an exercise has reached the goal number of repetitions, remove it from the circuit. Clients should then split up among the remaining exercises.
Tip: Bring a calculator to quickly add up scores while clients are rotating.
