Let’s face it, this year has been a time of reassessing our values and goals. It’s also been a time of keeping a lower profile and staying home more often.
Many of the things we took for granted have been wiped clean off our slate. Large gatherings, crowded gyms, and restaurants are just some of the things that changed to meet the new normal.
That is why Mickey’s Recess has become so popular. If you don’t know about them you’re in for a reprieve from the sedentary, and a revision of the great workouts of the past.
Mickey’s Recess is an in-home mobile personal training and fitness company. Business owner Mickey Blount has created a way to bring terrific workouts to your home, place of business or any space you chose.
There’s no need to go to a crowded gym or exercise classes. Blount has spent years honing up his fitness expertise to become a sought-after certified personal trainer.
And, you don’t have to leave home to get a good workout.
Often times great things happen by circumstance and not design. “While I was working at 32 East I started working out at CrossFit. It helped me feel energized and healthy, and I wanted to share that feeling with others.”
So that’s what he did.
“I’ve been working with Mickey for six months and I feel amazing. My body fat has reduced, my stamina doubled and I’m amazed at the strength I have. All at the convenience while training at home. If you have a busy lifestyle and want the benefits of a one-on-one training instructor, call Mickey. He’s the best,” said Rafael Batalla.
The good news is that your workout can be customized to fit any need you have. Do you want to do cardio work? Need to strengthen and tone? Or perhaps you need to stabilize your knee after an accident. No matter the cause, Blount has the answer.
They also follow all CDC safety guidelines – all equipment is sanitized before each training session and they do what is necessary to keep you safe at all times.
What’s a gym without the proper equipment? Nothing. That is why Blount and his daughter Mikel bring the tools of their trade to each location. That includes over 300 pieces of equipment – medicine balls, kettlebells, free weights, dumb bells, padded boxes for jumping, stretch bands, and dozens of other important workout necessities.
To guarantee that your workout is of the highest quality, Mick-ey and Mikel have multiple certifications; including ISSA, NASM, as well as certifications in weightlifting and training for children. Mickey is a perfectionist and customizes workouts to fit your needs and lifestyle. If you are older there is equipment that helps build muscles and strength to walk stairs or do other activities.
If you need to lose weight, work on joint health or even mental health, Mickey or Mikel have solutions that will help you reach your goals.
“We customize our workouts for each client individually, but we do this from the comfort of your home, or place of your choosing. We provide a comprehensive assessment to help determine your needs,” said Blount, who is well-known around Delray Beach for his many years working at 32 East.
They also offer classes and trainings for you and a few of your friends. Prices change for more than one person but there is cama-raderie and savings if you get a few friends together to take a class or do a training. They also offer Yoga for those in need of a slower cerebral workout that benefits all parts of the body.
If you want to workout in a swimming pool they offer water aerobics, lap swimming, high-intensive interval training and sports injury workouts. Mickey consults with physical therapists when working with clients who have injuries that need healing.
The operative word is healing. Today that might mean healing stress or depression, or getting a good workout after sitting at your computer all day on Zoom. After all, our lives have become a bit of a zoom room on each floor.
One-on-one personal training has become a necessity rather than a luxury for many. It’s helped clients feel better, become stronger and better able to cope with situations that seemed untenable before.
“We’re redefining physical fitness by bringing the workout to you, when and where it’s convenient for you. Classes can begin as early as 5 am and go until 8 pm. We bring the workout equipment and the certified personal trainers, and the results have been spectacular.”
Think of it as ordering take out from the gym.
