Last week I contacted Marc Lebert, creator of Lebert Fitness equipment. I was inquiring about his Lebert Equalizers as I have seen them in gyms and on websites. If any of you have been following Bodyrock.tv, you will know that it is one of their latest pieces of equipment. You can check out one of the workouts where they incorporate it here.
Marc is from Mississauga (which isn’t too far from me) and offered me (and Dean!) the opportunity to join in on one of his boxing classes at his gym, Fitness Nation. HOLY COW. I was so honoured and excited! Dean and I jumped at the opportunity and drove over on Saturday morning at 11am.
There was a fantastic turnout and all of us were sweating within the first five minutes of class. I learned how versatile the equalizers are, especially as we were being guided through the dynamic warm-up. Since we were too busy sweating it up, we couldn’t take many pictures of the warm-up but you can see a little more of what you can do here.
Boxing was really fun. We got to hit Marc for putting us through such a tough workout!! My arms turned into complete jello during class and I am STILL feeling it today but I survived.
We also used the equalizers for a lot of strength training – pull-ups, push-ups, ab work, you name it! The possibilities are endless.
The workout was just what I needed. I love to vary my workouts to keep things interesting and a class setting is awesome. There was so much energy and we were all feeding off each other. If you want to check out Fitness Nation (and meet Marc himself!), you can find all of the information on the website.
The best part about Saturday was what Marc gifted me with on my way out. He gave me my very own set of equalizers! I think I earned them for working so hard in class! I am so grateful. Not only is he a motivating fitness guru, but also so generous. Thank you for everything, Marc!
I can’t wait to share some of the home workouts that I do with these! If you are interested in learning more about them or even getting a set for yourself, check them out here! They are $20 off right now!
What is your favourite piece of fitness equipment?!
I absolutely love my Gymboss and my skipping rope…but I have a funny feeling these equalizers might make it into first place real soon!
