  • Going to Manic Training regularly is the best thing Ive done for myself. With two young kids, I'm typically the last person I take care of. Before Manic, my workout consisted of 30 minutes of cardio where I put in very little effort, often reading at the same time.

  • I have always been involved in athletics from a very early age. I began taking my athletics to the next level when I entered high school, training countless hours in the gym and on the field, trying to get faster and stronger.

  • My day-to-day lifestyle is fast paced, busy, and very active. From about 6am until 9pm I am on my feet all day, between working and volunteer firefighting. Prior to Manic Training, I had no set workout regimen; at most I would run short distance 1-2 times a week.

  • Despite my sporting background, the thought of starting Manic Training made me nervous, intimidated and full of self doubt. I had convinced myself that Manic was only for the hardcore elite athlete. However, I bit the bullet and decided to give it a go.

  • I was challenged by some friends to try Manic Training. I had just completed one of those “DVD workout” programs, and after starting Manic my goal was to see if I could even last a month. This was intense.

  • In November it will be 2 years since I began Manic Training. Back then I was not eating healthy, drinking and I weighed 200 pounds. I tried at-home workouts and going to the gym but I could not get into either of them. I needed something different, and I got it.
    I remember one of the first exercises I did in Manic was a Turkish get-up. I was hooked.

  • Almost exactly one year ago I arrived at my first Manic Training class. Throughout my second pregnancy, a few of my friends had started Manic, and they kept telling me how much I’m going to love it after I have the baby. They were exactly right. I loved it from the first class and since have become strangely addicted to it.

  • The other day I realized it has been 3.5 years since I started Manic Training, and I’m still loving it!
    That’s surprising because I was never a fan of indoor exercise — and I have been to it all, from Jazzercize, step, circuit, to fat burner, spin and Zumba — I maybe lasted 2 months in each.

  • I had never been someone that would do workouts outside of a particular sport or activity. But then — as an aging rugby player — I found myself in Bushy’s garage at the birth of Manic Training. It was like nothing I had done before — very intense. As Bushy’s vision evolved, so did the commitment to myself. I needed to get fit for life, not just for a sport or activity.

  • Manic continually challenges you to work harder and do more; no matter if it’s your 1st time or your 151st, you constantly push yourself. Instead of simply bolstering your strengths, you also focus on your weaknesses.
