Active Lifestyle Rock Wall July 31, 2010

The personal trainers of Active Lifestyle don’t just talk it, we live it. I’ve heard trainers say things like, “I get about 4 or 5 hours of sleep and that’s enough for me to feel refreshed and ready to go”.  Obviously, if this is coming from your trainer or coach then you need to re-evaluate your coaching choice. If your trainer is preaching lifestyle to you, yet is a work-a-holic then think again? It’s like a doctor telling you not to smoke when they themselves smoke. We’re not saying don’t live your life, but what we are saying is that making the right choices, the healthy choices, is all in your hands.

So at Todd and I not only incorporate activity throughout our week along with our busy work schedules, but we encourage our community members to get involved and get active as well. We don’t just tell you to take time to relax, but we make time to relax ourselves. We don’t just tell you, get more sleep, but we give you tips on how to get more sleep.

So when we recommend getting active, we also show you what we do to stay active. Over the weekend we decided to go to the local rock wall in Bangkok located at The Racquet Club on Sukhumvit soi 49.

Todd was a competitive speed climber and although he’s been in Bangkok for a while he hasn’t had the chance to go climb.

I was looking for some change from my workout routine and my 5K training and so we both decided to do a little 2 man team building activity together.

It’s difficult to find active things to do here within the Bangkok city limits, but the rock wall proved to provide just the answer we needed for a Saturday afternoon.

The staff was friendly and helpful and we both found it to be an awesome afternoon. The wall was challenging but doable.
