the compulsion of counting (2013)

[performed at A.E Haris Birmingham]

“Your time is precious. Especially when you have less than an hour to pick up your dry cleaning, stop for lunch, and attempt to make up for those juicy beef tacos you had topped to the max. It’s okay to turn down the drink invite. Why not turn your happy hour into an hour filled with endorphins and perspiration? Sixty minutes is plenty of time to do a substantial routine that involves strength, endurance, stability and flexibility… but you have to know what to do.”

“60 minutes or BUST: your best 1 hour workout”: Noam Tamir, president of Flex4Fitness Inc. (2010)
