A Tire Workout for Moms and Kids

A Tire Workout for Moms and Kids

This interesting workout came across my desk and I thought I would share it with you. It’s a “back to basics” workout by Amen Iseghohi. In this workout, Amen shows you how to have fun with a tire and your child (or your impending child. Or just yourself).

Remember…you have to change things up with your workouts to see results, and this seems like it would definitely do just that. Use a tire to get ride of the spare tire? I like it!

Have fun. If you try it, let me know your thoughts below.

Amen Iseghohi was born in Belgium to his parents Amen Iseghohi Sr. and Josephine, both of whom are of African decent.When Amen was eight years old, his parents moved him to West Africa to live with his grandmother. It was at this primal place that Amen’s grandmother taught him of a life where the physical and spiritual co-exist. He remembers the lessons his grandmother taught him as if it were yesterday. She used to say, “A tire is a great symbol of life and to stay alive, we have to keep moving. Movement is required for progress in life, so let’s move. Keep progressing and moving forward.” It was this inspiration that motivated the boys of the house to play outside with the tires found on farms surrounding the family compound. This was the genesis of Amen’s relationship with tires. Eventually, Amen left Africa for England, but he took his grandmother’s lessons with him. Arriving on American soil in 2003, Amen began the vision of Amenzone, not just a place of fitness, but a training facility . . . FOR LIFE.
