This blog will make you want to work for Active ATX

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Yep, I’m pretty sure Jack would have appreciated a day to lounge around every now and then! We all know it’s important to relax and rejuvenate, but sometimes we never seem to schedule it into our planner. Schedule relaxation? Yep, sometimes that’s what you have to do. Fortunately for the Active ATX team, we built that into our week last Thursday. Together 6 of us went out on the lake and had ourselves some fun!

In the past few months, I’ve developed a recent fascination with a string of TV shows involving survival skills, one-man armies, and true outdoorsmen. 

I received an email about this great group that I should check out and once I saw what they did, I knew it was my chance to get a taste of a true outdoor workout.  The workout is called MovNat.

Escape the Heat

105˚ 103˚ 102˚ 100˚This is literally the weather forecast for the next few days. Goodness! What shall the Austinites do? I’m guessing you’re like me and want to avoid “hermit life” in which you enjoy the outdoors by pressing your face up to the window. And I’m going to go out on a limb and say that you don’t want to sweat every ounce of H20 in your body due to this filthy heat! My solution? Jump in some refreshingly cold water and stay in the shade. My go-to spot in Austin has to be Hamilton Pool! A mini-oasis with its lush greenness and trickling waterfall, Hamilton Pool is absolutely one of Austin’s gems.

“If I don’t know everyone’s name, there are too many people in the group,” said Cody.

It’s one of the main philosophies that Cody uses for his style of training.  For Cody, its not about the quantity of people, he likes to focus on the individual within a group.  I found that very evident when I went to H.E.A.T Bootcamp.  Before I delve deep into this, I want to talk a little bit about the founder, Cody Butler.
