Fellow muscle-ridden Fanfest attendees,

Some of us devs in co-operation with our brother in fitness, Roc Weiler, want to invite you to join us for a noon workout on Thursday the 25th at our local club, Mjölnir, which is one of the biggest and coolest MMA clubs in all of Europe.

This should take around an hour all in all including warm up, stretches and showers.

The class we'll be doing is called Viking Fitness and is all about body-weight exercises, natural movement and high intensity intervals. Don't worry though...everyone is free to set their own pace so you don't have to be super fit to join and have fun.

And this particular class will be EVE themed and exclusive to our group :)

You'll need workout clothes and a towel, no shoes.

Cost (if any) will be minimal so bring a 1000 ISK with you just in case.

Let us know if you're thinking of joining or if you have any questions!

P.s. In case this is wildly more popular than we estimate we may have to cap attendance but it probably won't come to that since the room easily holds 80 people :)

Wait! What's this body-weight exercise? I thought we were going to be fighting? Please tell me we are fighting. I seriously want to take down Roc.

Pull ups, push ups, sprints, jumps...just as an example. But we'll probably also do punching and kicking exercises on pads and stuff :).

It'll be varied and fun.

Oh and if someone wants to roll we have some Brazilian jiu jitsu practitioners in the group :)

I already told Roc Weiler that I'd be there at the last local EVE meet.

See you all there!

High intensity interval training is one of the most intense form of exercise out there. Sometimes I add weights, but even without it's one helluva workout.

I'm really looking forward to this. Thanks for the post, CCP Guard.

whats the chances of myself, somewhat overweight and 30+ getting some ruff and tumble down with some eve dudes for real, just sparring and such? i dont mind full contact / padded or such but would be an awesome eve bonding experience

I don't think Guard's actually in either of those videos, and snowboarding is definitely not safer, I promise you that.
The guy from the second video is Árni Ísaksson, one of Iceland's two pro MMA fighters.

Correct, that's not me. I never throw more than one punch.

i don't think anyone was talking about brazilian jiu-jitsu , so thighs are unlikely to get wrapped around necks ;P

This gym has clearly never met a member of the reputation cartel. This will be glorious.

If you're not familiar with the location of the gym, a group of us will be leaving Harpa at 11:30 AM together.
