On July 20th, RiseVT sponsored a Show Up in Taylor Park, led by the amazing Nina King! Nina led through a workout using a deck of playing cards. Each suit was a specific exercise, such as squats, push-up, triceps dip, etc. The number on the card was the amount of reps that we were to complete. It was a total body workout. She also threw in some bonus moves that involved running or jumping jacks, when you drew a specific card. It was a total body workout!
Everyone was able to work out at their pace. Nina’s energy and enthusiasm made the workout go quickly. She also gave modifications to make it easier or more difficult to whoever wanted to adapt the workout to their level.
Nina is a personal trainer and works out of the Train Station. Check out her Facebook page “Nina King Certified Personal Trainer”!
