Burpees from Colorado

Dear Bodyrockers, Freddy, and Z –

I’ve become a huge fan of the community that has been cultivated here. Thank you all for making it living, breathing, and healthy.

I have always been active but there’s a privilege I’ve recently found in really taking care of your body and mind correctly. Your website and online community comes up often in conversation and although I love bringing friends with me when we decide to go running/jumping/climbing trees, I’m always sure to direct them to you as well. It’s much more than at-home workouts.

So thank you Freddy and Zuzana for creating this environment – and thanks to the Bodyrockers for making it a home.

If any Bodyrockers are ever in Colorado, there’s so much to do and enjoy here (I’ve lived here over a decade and I’m still finding things) but I fully recommend ‘the incline’ trail just outside of Colorado Springs (and a great bistro/bakery we found today at the base of the trail called ‘Croquettes’). The Incline was packed with the friendliest people of all fitness ranges though all motivated – and I’m happy to say I had quite a few 65+ year-olds burn right past me on this trail (one of them more than once!).



Bodyrock on, Erin!

    Congrats Brian. It’s more motivating for me to see it’s not girls-only. Due to a heart problem, I can’t lift weights that are too heavy – has been perfect for what I can do staying fit without getting obsessed with using weights.

    I love the incline! I have fond memories of hiking that! It was pretty brutal when I was home for a summer playing collegiate volleyball! I used to live just south of Colorado Springs and I miss it! :) I thought I recognized the background of your picture.  Thanks for posting.

    Great I idea to do a burpee at the the top of the incline. I live in Colorado Springs and that is one of my favorite places to burn some calories!! Definitely cool to to know there are body rockers in Colorado Springs!!

    I was there 2 years ago in November and there was ice/snow all over the incline and this guy ran up, down and back up again in the 35 min it took me and I was wearing microspikes and him just plain ol tennis shoes! those natives are amazing! :-) Good Job BRB!

    Most fun burpee post yet, Brian. And it’s so cool that you gave Erin a shoutout (hi, Erin! I do burpees for you too!) 
    Brian, you are one of the shining examples of the awesome people in this community; I’m high-fiving you through my laptop.

    Ramble on~!
