I decided to do this post in a format that Sergeant Exercise would appreciate.
Now, I’m aware that Sergeant Exercise has a pre-existing nickname: The Quadinator. And let me tell you—it is a very accurate nickname. He will take your legs, rip them to shreds, and then come back to give you more on the next leg day. I’m not trying to strip him of this well earned moniker.
I just think he’s worthy of more than one, so I’ve added Sergeant Exercise to his resume.
I’ve used Urbandictionary.com in the past to help support my assigned nicknames, because it’s just funny. It didn’t disappoint in this instance either. While the top definition for Sergeant is a bit ‘colorful’ and inappropriate (so no link here, but you may go look it up on your own), I was able to pull out what I feel is an accurate definition:
“Can be your mentor, worst nightmare or just some guy messing with your mind...often at the same time.”
Yeah, that sounds about right.
Sergeant Exercise was the first to introduce me to Sally in the world of exercise. In my mind, any Sally exercise will be permanently linked to him. He’s not the only instructor to dish out Sally, but somehow he manages to make you feel like you’re that dude in the image above.
All the instructors at FXB are focused on challenging the participants. However, Sergeant Exercise is the only instructor I’ve seen actually toss a band at someone he felt should color-up. Luckily, I’ve never been the recipient of one of his flying bands. Well, at least that was the case before this post...
There’s one more reason Chad is Sergeant Exercise for me—and I smile every time he says it (unless I’m grimacing from the pain in my legs...)
