Day 2: Mike Poole Fitness – got your tickets….

…to the gun show?! As fans of Anchor Man we told Esme this trip is about building up her guns. Day 2 of 10 was pretty full on with Esme showing her grit and determination as well as the power of her tantrums which meant Mum and Dad being kicked out of the gym. We were warned and expected it, but it’s still hard to deal with.

Today Esme really worked hard and showed us what she is capable of hopping on the leg press and using her legs individually or together – showing an improvement from yesterday!

And she has been throwing and twisting herself over the peanut, picking up toys from the floor and balancing them on Mike’s cap. Our focus is on Esme’s strength, particularly her core which will give her the ability to balance and then stand with and eventually without support.

Have a look at this video to see her hard at work.

Hey Esme!

Fantastic standing at the peanut ball. You will be able to show me your new tricks when you get back!

I cant wait.

i wonder if your tummy muscles ache? That means they are getting stronger.

I had a chat with Mike on the phone ….my Dad had a voice like his, so it was lovely to hear him!
I know you will work hard. Mike is fun and so are you, so you make a good team.

I will keep checking your blog to see what clever movements you are doing. Work that body!!xxxxxxx Jen

Well it’s true she is working very hard both with her workouts and tantrum well yesterday :)
Today was a lot more focused, an we had loads of control ad more standing, she is and will continue to push forwards, but this is because her mum, dad and her physios are pushing her hard and in ye correct ways this allows us to add our part in and a how’ve a well rounded strong confident child .. Keep watching she will continue to inspire and improve
