WORKOUT (25 Min) // Radical Stillness: Exploring Balance

A talk by Minky Founder + Head Trainer, Han Training (formerly LiftyBoi Training) Visit site

We've talked about our right to our bodies and then touched on how to move with intention, but now it's time to talk about what it means to be balanced and how we can find progress when we feel like we are stuck or standing still.

It requires taking time to slow everything down and consider how balance still requires the tiniest of movements to achieve.

In this session we'll explore what it means to have patience with our bodies, and to discover balance within our bodies and learn what it means to trust in them.

As with previous sessions, this workshop is accessible for all bodies at any level, and I will talk you through every movement as we play around with them! This workout will be approximately 20-30 min long.

About LiftyBoi Training:

"Hey there, my name is Minky (they/them).

I am the owner, founder, and head trainer of LiftyBoi Training.

I am an avid lifter, bodybuilder, rock climber, and overall strength fitness enthusiast. I find joy in moving my body through space in ways I never thought possible and I revel in feeling myself get stronger. My goal is to share this love with others and help them feel confident in their strength.

Before I became a Certified Personal Trainer, I quickly realized that a huge number of queer, trans, fat, and low-income communities avoid gym/fitness spaces because of how intimidating, gendered, and fat-shaming the culture can be. Being a queer, nonbinary transmasculine immigrant of color, I am not unfamiliar to this sort of discomfort and feelings of danger in spaces that may not be inclusive.

Sometimes, the prices alone can also be quite steep for a space that can be increasingly uncomfortable physically, mentally, and emotionally. On the other hand, though a typical big box gym can be more affordable, many people don't know where to start and just bounce around on the equipment without a plan or structure to efficiently attain their goals.

I've listened to many stories about how hard it is to feel motivated knowing that it all feels incredibly inaccessible and impossible to maintain.

I decided to move forward with a PT certification in order to create access for the communities I hold dear. LiftyBoi Training was designed to provide a resource to all the people who were tired of having none. To gain fitness guidance from a trainer who could empathize with their concerns. I want queer, trans, fat, POC, disabled, and low-income folx in our community to feel empowered in every aspect of their lives.

LiftyBoi strives to further open the door that others have done before and challenge the world to create even more space for marginalized communities to step forward and show that being healthy and fit doesn’t have to prescribe to one standardized idea of body, race, gender, or income.
