Preaching the Gospel

A correspondent on Facebook teases me slightly over my attempts to persuade my readers to get into the gym and to explore what their bodies can do! Well, the bad news is, I’m not going to give up. We all feel so good about what we do in terms of our personal fitness that the preaching of the gospel will continue! of course, we don’t expect everyone to succeed with what these guys are doing…

…but (your doctor’s advice permitting) there is no reason not to do a little running, get out walking or climbing a few hills…

…and, of course, lift a few weights…

You don’t have to start with the heavy stuff – indeed, you shouldn’t – bodyweight exercises are good too…

leg raises

(but please don’t wear such horrible socks – barefoot is good!). Even a few (but regular) light weights…

…and you’ll soon be showing off…

Of course, there are other types of exercise, but a few dedicated hours in a gym really focuses mind on body on what you can achieve!…

We certainly find that it all works best when you train with a friend or friends…

About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...
