Manowars 17 point win over Crumlin came just 4 short weeks after their 1 point loss against the same team. The same players took to the field but yet the result was so different – they put it down to their additional training in sásta Drogheda.
The team had improved substantially from last year but as the season was coming to an end a few results went against them leaving them in the unwanted position of possible relegation in the league. Players were disheartened and disheveled as they could not justify their results against the level of commitment they had put in during the year – maybe they were just stale and tired.
The manager decided to try something different with potential to improve fitness, strength and overall team morale = sásta!! 23 players attended up to 6 sessions in the studio and were challenged to complete an Athlete programme by the end of their 3 weeks. It was completely out of their comfort zone and seemed impossible after the 1st session but as I said this team had no fear of commitment and got the sásta bug making them adamant to try & beat the pod.
Over the sessions the competition grew to see who was the top performer, players stayed in the studio supporting and encouraging each other to do the impossible – and they did. The teams dropped 57.5% body fat (2.5% per player avg), gained 115lbs Muscle (5lbs per player avg), lost 92lbs Fat Mass (4lbs per player avg), decreased their metabolic age by 19 years (0.82yrs per player avg) and visceral fat dropped by 17 (0.74 per player avg), their average distance covered on the pod in 30 minutes increased by 1.5km average per player, but most importantly, they took the challenge, embraced it and overcame it.
Not only did their fitness and body strength improve but their mental strength and self belief sky rocketed. By overcoming the obstacle of the POD they knew they had the capabilities to overcome the game.
