...And surprisingly, it wasn't with a gun.
No, it was with Fit Shot, which combines a CrossFit-type workout with shooting exercises! Tara and I met Rob Pincus at Valhalla several years ago, and had a private day of instruction from one of his instructors. If I recall correctly, after they unloaded our gun bags, we were told that it looked like Soldier of Fortune puked all over their gun counter. We took it as a compliment. We had both of our tactical shotguns, Tara's long-range rifle, and our handguns. Not much, but more than they were expecting two women to have, I suppose.
Anyway, the Valhalla shooting center has closed, and Rob Pincus has moved on to I. C. E., where he teaches Combat Focus Shooting all over the world. He's also a Certified CrossFit instructor.
Do you see where this is headed? Fit Shot combines "Functional Fitness and Practical Shooting Skills". You know I love shooting from my Bosu, and I was pretty certain that was some cutting edge training right there. This stuff makes my Bosu shooting look like child's play.
Their Facebook page has a lot of sample workouts that aren't nearly as intense as the one in the video, but I really want to try it. I just have to figure out how to do something like this at the range, since I'm relatively certain that my gym won't let me work out with my gun on and dry fire at the wall. Pretty sure that would induce panic in the other patrons.
