Our passion above all else over the last decade has been practising the art of self-defence for fitness and also personal self confidence. Nothing we'd rather be doing than enjoying a full contact sparring session of 3 to 5 rounds with our favourite clients. But we also appreciate the benefits of cross-training.
In addition to our daily self-defence classes and cardio fitness kickboxing classes, we also enjoy outdoor inline skating at Molos with the Limassol Skate School (also know incorrectly as Rollerblading!), the first professional skate school in Cyprus with ICP certified skate instructors is owned by V1 FITNESS.
We also love nature running at the beautiful mountain trails of Vasa Kellakiou, Limassol, home of the international Cyprus Ultra Marathon (also created by V1 FITNESS owner Michael Rivers).
With such incredible sunshine almost all year round in Cyprus, we'll never fully understand why people spend so much time working out in the smelly germ infested indoor gyms in Limassol (Have you been to the busiest ones lately?). And to run on a treadmill while looking out the window at the beautiful sea and coastal path that is perfect for outdoor running is just insane to us. For example, the coastal path from La Isla car park to St Raphael Marina is paradise on Earth for enjoying a run after work during the summer - It's also free.

Hey man...Trail running while stoned! Interesting and somewhat entertaining video by Green Flower Media.
It does make sense given the pain reduction data with medicinal Cannabis, our only concern is how safe a runner would be running stoned, especially where we run at Cyprus Ultra trails in Limassol.
But anyway, we just wanted to post this and hope it made you smile :)
