Humans of Warrior Fitness • Martin Hornfeldt, Part 2 • Lately I have noticed that it is more and more people coming to the sessions. Just a year or two there were just a few regulars coming for the extra runs but these days there are big crowds turning up every now and then. Especially Tuesdays and the RAW during weekend are getting really popular. Good to see new faces. For me Warrior Fitness has been good from the beginning but the longer you hang in there, the more you realise that there are a lot of planning that goes into all the different sessions and it never gets boring. More and more focus on Spartan races have its pros and cons but I also like the specialised training programs and talks that pops up a little now and then. I train to keep myself in good shape and to hopefully make sure I can stay active for many more years to come but It is always fun to have a goal. Having done a few Spartan races, trail runs and olympic distance triathlons the last few years, this year I have a few new challenges ahead of me since it gives me little extra motivation and its a great way to spend your vacation with the family and keep everyone active. A half Ironman on Langkawi in November just to see if I can handle that distance and then Singapore Marathon in December (I do one every 11th year…). Then I have been quite hooked on trail runs so there is a 40km+ coming up in Cambodia in January. Most of the events I try to do with the rest of the family! I just hope Warrior Fitness will continue to do what they are doing today. Continuously renewing itself but keeping the basics constant. Find even more specialised talks and trainings. But first and foremost, continue with good training with good people and coaches. Continue to build a good community. Really cool if it could spread to more countries and places.

Humans of Warrior Fitness • Martin Hornfeldt, Part 1 • The first Bootcamp for me was back in November 2012. A friend (Daniel) said he had found this outdoor training that sounded fun. I played football for almost 20 years but quit many years back and had been doing long distance running since my teens. First half marathon in 1986 when I was 15. Once in a while I also went to the gym just for the sake of it. Now after 40 small injuries started to pop up quite often. I had just decided to start doing triathlons to get more variation into my training and hopefully get rid of the small injuries. My first Olympic distance here in Penang was the target in April 2013. I was looking for a way to get serious especially with my interval training and hoped that this was it - and it was. From the first session back in 2012 with Conor I realized this suited me perfectly. I needed someone to push me and I needed the varied training focused on overall fitness as well as training with a good group of people not to mention all the dedicated coaches! I lived back in Europe between 2013 and 2016 but coming back here 2016 it was great to join in again. Still a bunch of familiar faces. Also not knowing what the next session will be like is on of the main reasons making it easy to come back for me. I have always liked to push myself out of the comfort zone and with WBC I can do that but also take it easier the days I am not 100%. I usually go to 2-3 evening sessions in the week and RAW during weekends. Its a good excuse to force myself to get out of office in time.
