At Fitness Renegades, no one simply works out; rather, participants execute daily missions, which involve moves ranging from rope climbing and tire rolling to squatting and performing handstand push-ups. Fueled by their motto: “not a gym, not a diet, a lifestyle,” the brains behind Fitness Renegades trade in traditional equipment and conventional exercise regimens for an intense, out-of-the-box tapestry of movement and interdisciplinary techniques designed to produce and, most importantly, maintain results. These workouts maybe tough, but that doesn’t prompt anybody to ignore the pain by plugging into an iPod or zoning out in front of a TV. All the members stay solely focused on performing the high-impact workout, as well as fostering friendships and support amongst their fellow renegades. They carry this sense of community to outside the gym as well, participating in activities such as cookouts and fun runs.
To reach the full-blown Renegade workout, new members must first prep in a Renegade Rookies workout sequence, which introduces key moves and covers nutrition basics. Additionally, Fitness Renegades recommends rookies and longtime members alike complement the unique fitness program with the Paleo diet, which means they should only eat anything Paleo-era hunter-gatherers could eat—mostly unprocessed meats, fruits, veggies, and mastodon skulls.
