I’ve been waiting for the right moment to write about one of the coolest pieces of equipment I’ve come across in a while. Since the Open is near completion, and the Regional’s are right around the corner, I felt this was the perfect time. Like a medieval piece of torture equipment, re-designed for the modern era, The Flipper by Milo Fitness is designed to make any WOD a grueling test of you or your teams true fitness level.
The Flipper made quite a splash during the 2013 FTF Affiliate Challenge. With its unique design, varied functionality, and solid construction, it gathered a lot of interest as it sat there on the convention floor waiting for it’s chance to shine, and shine it did.Teams, most who had never laid eyes on The Flipper prior to the comp, were in for a real treat.
I’ve had a couple weeks to reflect on the 2013 FTF Affiliate Challenge. The past couple of weeks have been hectic. Valentines day, a trip to Las Vegas to celebrate, and a subsequent family wide bout of the stomach flu (still in effect as I write this), have put me a bit behind schedule.
As is usual with two young kids, we didn’t get much sleep the night before the competition. Between the barking dog next door (pet friendly hotel), the nervousness of the impending competition, and two tossing turning kids, lets just say it was a long night.
Sorry for the lack of posts lately! This past month has been super hectic. I’ve been preparing for the FTF Affiliate challenge so that I don’t make a complete ass of myself during the competition. In addition we’ve been working on Jerk Block prototypes we plan on selling, and this has taken up a bunch of my free time.
I’ve got some my thoughts on both the new Nano 2.0’s I got a couple months back and a new pair of Rogue Fight shorts that arrived last week.
