Manipulation: Lift, Carry, Throw, Catch @ MacRitchie Reservoir

Manipulating an external object like a rock, a tree log, or even a human body is an essential survival skill. Objects in nature are much more complex than barbells in gym. While lifting weights in the gym does help to condition your body, the things we lift in real life situations are often not balanced and do not present an easy grip. Try lifting a fully unconscious person from the ground during a rainy day by yourself and you will know what we mean. The human body is also evolved to throw objects at high speed for hunting. Compared to other primates, we are much weaker but can throw much farther if we use the catapult in our bodies. Learn how to manipulate objects safely and efficiently!

Description: Each group class is an introduction to basic human movement skills such as crawling, balancing, running, climbing, lifting, carrying, catching, and throwing. Each class will focus on different skills to establish a solid foundation that will help you progress to more complex and intense applications.

Fee: S$30 per person. Discount if you bring friends. Bundled classes available ($25/class for 5 lessons; $20/class for 10 lessons). Free for first-timers.

Suggested attire: Comfortable workout clothes (that can get dirty). Wear leggings if you might get itchy from contact with the grass. Minimalist shoes (Vibram FF, Luna sandals, etc) if you have a pair or even better, barefoot.

Wet Weather: We will continue if the rain is light. We will postpone the full lesson or part of it if the rain is heavy or if there is lightning.

Miscellaneous: Bring snacks and plenty of water. Be prepared to be outside for the entire session (i.e. wear sunscreen, if necessary).
