[fa icon="clock-o"] Feb 5, 2016 11:16:06 AM [fa icon="user"] Jonah Story [fa icon="folder-open'] Events


Throughout Tampa Bay Startup Week, a collection of hands-on fitness workshops will teach you the simple and effective exercises anyone can do at home or on the go to keep your body and mind strong. During each event, expect to participate and receive the rewards of physical activity while learning special stretches, exercises and stress relief techniques that every entrepreneur needs.

One great way to improve your effectiveness as an entrepreneur is to increase your capacity as a leader.

Nothing wastes capacity more than stress! Relieving stress happens when you increase or improve blood flow, but is it really that easy? Luckily there are several physical activities that can effectively reduce stress and immediately provide you with increased stamina to face your next challenge.

With time commitment being a major consideration for entrepreneurs, it’s important you learn what’s most effective.

Join us for fitness on-the-go offered a few times throughout Tampa Bay Startup Week. If you want to get a quick workout in at Basecamp while learning something at the same time, this is for you!

Emily is a certified Yamuna Body Rolling Practitioner whose mission is to help

people become pain free.

Her pursuits have led her on a 2 year journey teaching these practices to local Tampa Bay natives.

Body Rolling is a revolutionary therapeutic technique that uses special 4”-10” inch Yamuna Balls to reduce pain, stress and tension. Additionally, it promotes healthy living by improving restrictions with mobility, and posture. Body Rolling allows you to work specific muscles in detail, creating suppleness in tight areas and optimizing range of motion while re-educating muscles to create positive and permanent changes in the body.

The physiological theory behind the Orangetheory workout is known as “Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption,” or EPOC. Our program design produces workout "afterburn" effect, which is an increased metabolic rate for 24 to 36 hours after the workout. When combining the amazing workout with EPOC, our clients burn an average of 500 to 1000 calories. With energetic music, a talented group of fitness coaches and a high-energy studio, you have the recipe for a workout that produces BIG and LASTING results.
