My name is Regan Kust. I’m a personal trainer and wellness coach at Aurora BayCare Sports Medicine. My purpose in life is to help people reach their goals…its what I do, what I enjoy, what I live for.
Do you like to work out hard? Do you enjoy feeling the deep muscle burn for days after you exercise? Have you ever felt the need to verify just how lean, mean and tough you are? Then the Tough Mudder is for you.
What is the Tough Mudder? It is “probably the toughest event on the planet!” Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. With the most innovative courses, half a million inspiring participants, and more than $3 million raised for the Wounded Warrior Project, Tough Mudder is the premier adventure challenge series in the world.
A group of employees at Aurora BayCare Medical Center decided this event was worth their time and energy. Ben Gignac and I, both personal trainers at Aurora BayCare Sports Medicine, knew the importance of training for such an event. We developed our own Tough Mudder bootcamp to prepare participants for the brutal obstacle course. We are currently in our 4th week of training and our team is looking fierce!
There are about 15 participants, and not everyone is doing the Tough Mudder. Bootcamp is a great way to crosstrain your body. If you’re looking for something new to change up your same old routine, then by all means drop in. The cost is $5 a class.
Here is an example of what to expect if you should drop in: warm up with a ½ mile run, carry heavy logs from one end of the soccer field to the other, belly crawl under your team while they hold a plank position, burpees with a bosu, medicine ball toss and much more.
As a trainer, I love teaching a variety of classes and am always open to new ideas. If there is a class you enjoy that we do not offer, please contact me with your ideas and suggestions. Now get up, get out and get going! Have a fit day!
