“Hey Jeff, the little hand says it’s time to rock n’ roll!”

Point Break!

I’d like to take this opportunity to recognize that today’s workout is named after possibly the best action movie of all time: Point Break. If you’re thinking “yeah, those guys wearing the wing suits were awesome” then you’re thinking of the wrong Point Break, junior. The original is what we’re talking about here. Circa 1991. Maybe you only know Keanu Reeves as John Wick, and Patrick Swayze as that dude in Dirty Dancing. That would be a shame because you’d be missing their very best work. At Evolve there is a generation of us who know what’s up and we feel it’s our duty to educate you. We’ve actually been turning you on the Point Break for years, you probably just didn’t know it. 

There are oh so many motivational Point Break quotes that we share in the gym. Classics such as “If you want the ultimate, you’ve got to be willing to pay the ultimate price”, or maybe you’ve heard “it’s like acid in your mouth” uttered after an especially brutal air bike workout? Yep. Point Break. And of course if you’ve ever attended a 6am with me, Jeff, and JoLynn you’ve no doubt heard “the little hand says it’s time to rock n’ roll” before the clock counts down to start the workout.

You see, it’s important for us to pass on these important things on to you. At Evolve we want you to be well rounded. Fit AF and culturally aware. Both are important. So here’s what we recommend: come in and throw down today’s workout “Point Break.” Then go home and after a nutritionally rich meal to aid in your recovery and gains, sit down and watch the original “Point Break” from 1991. You’ll see that this will end up being the perfect Monday. You’re welcome.
