About two years, I met up with a friend from high school who I hadn’t seen in a while. His name is Howard Panes. We met up at a health club I was training at called Can Do Fitness in Short Hills NJ.
Howie is the truly passionate owner of How Fit in Livingston NJ, a top notch personal training studio that offers a truly one of a kind training experience. He is is a very successful guy, and is entrepreneurial in fitness.
At the time, he was training a client outside his own facility, with a product called the NRG Ball. This is a product that Howie (as I call him) developed.
I didn’t want to interrupt him, but as friends who go way back, I took an interest in what he was up to. The guy he was training, was having a ball (literally) with this thing and really challenging himself. I notice that his workout was not long yet it was clear he was taking his fitness level to a whole new level in those 15 minutes or so I watched.
Of course, my interest was peaked. I had a lot of experience by then with portable fitness equipment and I was determined to have my NRG Ball experience.
That was before my Flip Camcorder so I didn’t film the experience, but I have to tell you; having been in or around the fitness industry for a long period of time, and experiencing so many different fitness devices, this one was true a good one.
Maybe it was the focus on core, it’s grip, the ability to do anything from a push up to new movements I had never experienced before. Whatever it was, I was both challenged and intrigued.
Today, I am incorporating NRG Ball training into my life, for a variety of reasons.
- It’s my fried Howie’s product (I’m honest)
- It’s challenging, from a push up to new movements I’ve never tried.
- It’s anywhere, anytime! (I love that).
Read about it and try it out.
He’s got a bunch of videos up there that are great; just click on exercises.
We’re going to do an NRG Ball Transformation Challenge pretty soon, so gets some practice and have fun.
