My husband, John Romaniello, and I are huge nerds. Like ha-yuuuuuge. In fact, it’s part of the reason why we were attracted to each other in the first place: mutual nerdery cemented our bond. We geek out on the regular, from Zombie Apocalypse talk to our recent visit to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando. It’s not only what keeps our relationship fresh–it keeps us young, as well.
Our nerdery runs so deep, that our wedding was studded with it. From our officiant’s Jedi Robe to the LOTR quotes around the venue, we kept it classy with a hint of nerd–because that’s just who we are. We even snuck some Game of Thrones and Harry Potter references into our vows, and managed to name our tables after Star Wars planetary bodies. Heck, we even addressed an invitation to Albus Dumbledore…although I have doubts as to whether it made it to Hogwarts.
Because we are such big nerds, it’s only natural that we let that
part of our lives seep into the other large part of our lives: fitness.
John has already done a pretty good job of this by publishing such programs as Super Hero Workout,
and The Zombie Apocalypse Workout.
He likes to geek out with fitness
programs, and as his wife and fellow nerd, I completely approve.
But when it comes to my feminine side, I’d much rather look to Wonder Woman for fitness inspiration than prepare for the impending threat of the living dead (although we actually are in the process of preparing for such an event). Because look at her?! I mean, isn’t she just glorious?
Absurdly strong, appropriately cunning, and always just–Wonder Woman is the quintessential Super Heroine.
My obsession with Wonder Woman is so extreme, that I even made a WW costume to wear for my son’s SuperHero themed birthday a few years back. Of course, I kept it child appropriate, and opted for shorts with adhesive felt stars rather than her traditional briefs. I made the tiara and indestructible bracelets out of glittery foam paper, and created a WW stencil to spray paint the logo on a red tank top. I even had an invisible jet! Can you see it?
As you can see, my obsession led me to some serious crafting. Because of my obsession with Wonder Woman, it was only natural that when John and I discussed writing a fitness program together, we decided on one with a Super Heroine theme. Thus, Super Heroine Fitness was born.
Writing this program was super (pun intended) fun, because we got to share and blend our training philosophies while geeking out on Super Heroines like Wonder Woman, Black Widow, and She-Hulk (who is the poster child for body love, by the way). And, since the program is for WOMEN ONLY, having a woman’s touch was not only preferable–it was necessary.
Now, don’t get me wrong–just because the framework is centered around comic book goddesses does not mean the program itself is fluffy. This is a serious training program designed to make you stronger, faster, leaner, and most of all a more SUPER version of YOU. It’s going to be an intense and rewarding 12 weeks, in which you’ll discover capabilities you didn’t even know you had. I’m personally really proud of this program, and I can honestly say that if you follow it as prescribed, the results will be astounding.
