I know that CrossFit is out there and has strong ties to Paleo-types and is favoured by them. But I was just thinking about the ideal gym. Because I am reading The Primal Blueprint and following Mark's Daily Apple, I began thinking about how you could set up the "perfect" gym to support it.
I was thinking...
. Indoor running track with "countdown clocks" at strategic points, together with a light system where the edge of the track was on a continuous loop of Green lights for 20 seconds, then Red for 10 seconds, to facilitate Tabatas
. An outdoor running track just the same...but outdoors
. A "hill" section outdoors to do hill sprints
. Some cardio machines also for "sprints" eg rowers, bikes
. Loads of free weights, suspension straps, Viprs etc
. Nutrition classes, lectures on Primal eating
. Outdoor sports field to play ultimate frisbee, touch rugby and other games on
. Teams organised among members for semi-organised play
. Supplements sold (but only Paleo approved)
. Maybe a cafe selling tasty Primal/Paleo foods
So, 3 questions:
. Would you join?
. What else would you add?
. What would you call it? "Grok's Gym"? "The Cave"?
