Here are the results. The second group had tighter times since the athletes did not have to use the device. This was pretty unscientific, but showed that it warrants further testing.
Testing AVACORE Device. http://www.avacore.com/default.html
Mark from Avacore brought some cooling units to class to test there effectivness on performance. The group at 1200 used the product. The 1700 group did not.
I am not an expert in physiology, so don't ask me how it works. So, using the black box model, we decided to test performance and see if it helped the athletes recover and perform well in the second Fran.
We did back to back Frans with approximatly 3:00 rest in between the Frans. (Fran is Thruster/Pull Up Couplet 21, 15, 9) Prescribed execution is #95 thruster for men, #65 for women. Pull up is with body weight. Due to equipment and performance constraints, we scaled it down to accomodate our athletes. We would like to have people who can do legitimate Frans test it and see what the results are.
So, we are calling this Evil Fran, Twin Frans or just plane "Where S@#! hits the Fran."
We look forward to more testing of the device. It is gets resuls, we will use it.

Every now and then, we need to fire up a workout that makes people remember why they take the class and why you pay to come to it.
People pay more than a regular gym membership to take our class. The person who takes the class once per week pays about the same as a membership. Think about it, 4 hours per month vs a whole month of being able to go to the gym. Why?
The simple difference is results. When you even ATTEMPT a work out like this, your self esteem and confidence goes up. Knowing, not thinking, you are strong and tough and getting in the best shape of your life. You can face the hardships and difficulties life throws at you. No question. Bring it. It is a pleasure to lead the people in my classes. The effort, sprit and dedication is unmatched.
I am deeply honored to have classes full of such inspirational people. Hyperfit USA offers strength and conditioning training. NOT classes. I would bet that if you look at the pre-season training for most sports, it resembles what we do. The training drives the class. The music does not drive the class. The trendy new fangled thing is not it. The personality of the instructor is certainly not it. It is the workout.
It is simple: Results.
The challenge goes out again: If you can find us fitter people, show us, we will train like them. Until then, you can train with us.
