2. Start bouncing around and moving each part of your body, start with a little bounce, shift, side to side, start moving your arms, your hands, your shoulders, feel the beat in your chest, let the music flow
3. Up the intensity, dance in your bubble, move around and feel the music
4. Have fun and dance for the next 30-50 minutes
Scale or modify as needed, and have fun! Get this week’s challenge done and share with #BeastDays #BeastsOCR #UnleashYourBeast. We might just ask to feature you and or get you some of our sweet new stickers. Oh yeah!
BeastDays #4 Coach: Tony Matesi !!!
“Tony Matesi began his entrepreneurial career at the age of eight, copying and selling CDs and PlayStation games on the school bus. Since then, his passion for innovation has led to a unique career as an endurance athlete, sportswriter, and digital marketing professional.
From developing a cheerleading clothing line to building an international endurance event, Tony has always had a knack for finding niches and elevating them with his creativity.
As a lifelong athlete, Tony prioritizes health and wellbeing above all else and created the blog “The Legend of the Death Race” as a resource for Obstacle Race Training. Tony constantly seeks the next challenge and has competed at elite levels in Tae Kwon Do; gymnastics; competitive cheerleading; obstacle, endurance, and adventure racing; Ultramarathons; and spent ten years on stage performing as a lead ballet dancer in the Chicago Festival Ballet rendition of the Nutcracker. He has competed in three Spartan Death Races, placed 3rd at the San Diego Alpha Warrior, made it to the City Finals on American Ninja Warrior, created a Death Race training program, helped open the gym REACH Fieldhouse in Chicago, launched Spartan Endurance Internationally and brought the ultramarathon event SISU 24 Ultra to the Pacific Northwest.
He has dedicated his life to helping others and has been a life coach for peers, consultant to global businesses, and used his athletic expertise to help motivate others to achieve their dreams.
Even though this is Tony’s first published book, it is not his first published work. As the former Editor in Chief of SPARTAN Magazine, Tony’s work has been shared and printed in various publications in the world of obstacle and adventure racing.
He continues to update the Legend of the Death Race blog with new podcasts each week that share the “legends” of other Death Racers weekly. You can find out more at www.legendofthedeathrace.com.
