Don’t Dread Exercise… Eat The Frog!

Leapfrog to fitness by facing your fears

Eating the frog is about embracing the things you dread. Facing life’s hurdles head-on instead of worrying, and wishing things were easier. If you have to eat a frog, procrastinating will only ruin your day.

So what’s your frog: An uncomfortable phone call? Cleaning the kitchen?

You might be surprised to hear that Olympic Gold Medallist Bryan Clay’s frog is fitness.

“Fitness is hard! You’re on your back, you’re throwing up, you have to force yourself to go out, it can be lonely,” he says, but it’s also incredibly rewarding. So for 20 years Clay “ate the frog,” and it took him to the pinnacle of athletics.

#TakeTheLeap

Now Clay is taking that seize-the-day attitude to a new chain of gyms called — you guessed it — Eat the Frog Fitness.

“We liked the quirky name,” he says, “Because fitness is hard, but we have fun too!”

Wes Yee, Manager of the Covington location opening soon, loves the community-building that comes with a unique name.

“We call ourselves the Frog Squad. When you join Eat the Frog you get to be a part of something, and that creates accountability. We have a lot of fun.”

Yee’s “frog” was aging, as he stared down his 50th birthday. “I realized I could either dread it or embrace it,” he says, so he started doing small group fitness training and pretty soon he began to feel better. “I had borderline high blood pressure and was pre-diabetic, but I’m much healthier now.”

Founding Frogs

Clay recently moved to the Pacific Northwest and has been impressed with his neighbors’ commitment to fitness.

“People go outside all the time here, even when it’s pouring outside!”

He believes Eat the Frog’s hybrid of personal training and group workouts will fit well with Pacific Northwesterners’ existing workouts.

“Personal trainers are great — the attention, the personalized workout and the nutrition all help, but it’s so expensive. Combine that with all the best things about group training — the atmosphere, fun, and accountability and you get the personalized sessions at Eat the Frog.”

Sit in on one of their free Saturday bootcamps, Yee says, and you may train next to an Olympian, a 72-year-old, a woman who’s six months pregnant and a 350-pound man who’s never been to the gym. All are working with the same intensity towards a common goal — better health.

“Come out and give us a try!” Clay says. Try a free session, or meet with a coach to discuss your goals, get a fitness assessment, and come up with a nutrition plan.

Eat the Frog has 20 locations across the U.S.A. and Canada, and the Covington location is conveniently located just off Highway 18. Stop by today!
