The Friday (Anti)Stretch: Rage Yoga, A Shaming Fitness App, a New Way to Date

Screen Shot 2016-03-04 at 11.17.03 AM

Tim and I are looking forward to a string of new guests the next two weeks — from Dallas, France and San Francisco. And, after a weird warm and dry February, it looks like #MiracleMarch will be starting on Sunday, with many more inches of fresh in the forecast. Whoo hoo — bring on the pow!

I can’t believe that we’re due to head back to SF in just over a month. The name of the game for the next few weeks is wringing every bit of awesome-ness from our Montana adventure that I can.

This week I came across some fitness and wellness news that made me go, “huh”? I’m not sure if I’m amused or horrified. Nope, strike that. Definitely kinda horrified.

Have a great weekend!

Need to work out some aggression? Now there’s a new class in Canada called Rage Yoga, held in a bar, complete with flying F-bombs and beers afterward.  (via Well + Good)

Are you motivated by insults and put downs? Then this Japanese app in which a male avatar encourages you to work out by taunting you about your body may be your cup of tea. After all, who wouldn’t want to do a few extra crunches after being woken up with a “good morning, Tubby” from a sadistic animated character. What were they thinking?!

Are you so obsessed with your workouts that you need to choose your dates based primarily on whether they CrossFit or rock climb? Then the new dating app Sweatt is for you. In all honesty, this one’s not so bad — I mean hey, if I were single, I’d value dating someone who cares about their health — but the concept seems just a tad limiting for choosing a mate.
