About Block Fit
CHICO’S PHILOSOPHY IS HOW TO GET FROM ‘A TO B’ IN THE SHORTEST AMOUNT OF TIME WITH THE MOST IMPACT. HE ALSO BELIEVES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD APPROACH. SO AFTER MUCH RESEARCH INTO DIFFERENT CLASSES HE PICKED THE 4 DISCIPLINES THAT HAVE BEEN HERE SINCE TIME AND MEMORIAL: DANCE, COMBAT, HIIT AND YOGA INSPIRED MOVES AND MEDITATION.
With Dance mankind kind have always danced and will continue to do so, and with Combat people fought back then and still do now, accept Block Fit is as Bruce Lee said it is “The art of fighting without fighting which brings us to the HIIT Block. This correlates way back with the hunter gatherer days with short burst of energy to make a kill or run from being killed, and of course last but not least theYoga and meditation. This is the essential part of it all. Because no matter how rich successful, famous or powerful a person is, they will get to the a stage and age in their life where they ask that old age question, who am I? Why am I here, what’s my real purpose in life, and this is where the Yoga inspired moves and meditation comes into play. Chico calls it the glue or the cement that glues everything together, Mind body soul.
So Block Fit was born, a revolutionary one of a kind fitness brand. it is 4 workouts 1 class, performed to easy to follow blocks of choreography to original music sung by Chico himself and you get to burn between 650 and a 1000 calories, as a matter of fact this was smashed by Maxine Boulton in Norwich Bannatyne on May 14th 2016 to a staggering 1128 calories.
Block Fit is the middle path of the fitness industry. You can go as easy as you like or as hard as you like, but the beauty of it all, is the exercises are modified to beginner, intermediate, and advanced in the same class, so you have all different abilities standing side by side, and everyone gets their Block Fit workout and what makes it even more special and a stand out alone brand, is you never get bored because the blocks are between 12 and 15 minutes long so if you didn’t like one block you haven’t got long to wait before the next block arrives. And the most surprising thing we found amongst the participants and instructors alike, is once they step outside the box, Their fear turns into elation because not only do they enjoy what they feared most but Block Fit would have introduced them to a discipline that they would never ever dreamed of doing but has now become their favourite.
Chico said: Block Fit is a workout with a heart. if it’s not universal we don’t teach it, and if it’s not universal we don’t preach it. The music business fed my ego, the fitness industry feeds my soul. I am seeing so many transformations now. When you get an instructor or a participant walking through the door looking like a closed book and by the time they walk out of the door they would have blossomed into the most gorgeous flower beaming with pride at achieving something that they never thought was possible makes every second, and a minute of blood sweat and cheers worth while. I am so happy to be sharing Block Fit with like minded people, and dare I dream. the world one day. Thank you for sharing my dream, and thank you to everybody whos been instrumental in helping me turn my dream into a reality.
