Get Some Soup Cans and Sweat It Out! [Video]

When a local neighborhood group approached ACE certified personal trainer, Matthew McCurdy about creating a weekly work-out routine to help those who were sheltering in place get some much needed exercise, he jumped at the opportunity. McCurdy who specializes in training for pre/post natal and older adults put together his “Soup Can Sweat Workout” to show everyone that it really is that simple to set up some space and find everyday things in your home to  use as make-shift weights. From soup cans, to bottles of wine, or peanut butter jars, there’s no excuse to not get active. McCurdy says it’s pretty amazing how much of a challenging work-out you can get in your home with his workout routine. It can also be modified to suit every individual’s level of fitness.

In addition to his Friday soup can sessions, McCurdy whose client base is mostly in the NYC metro area  swiftly transitioned his training practice to all live virtual classes maintaining most of his clientele. As we start to see industry open back up, McCurdy knows that gyms will be some of the last places to reopen. He plans to continue working with his clients virtually  and hopes that maybe down the road there will be a mix of both in person training and virtual sessions that will provide everyone with more flexibility in their schedules.

Matthew McCurdy is an ACE (American Council on Exercise) Certified Personal Trainer with over 18 years of training experience in New York City. He holds specialties in Pre/Post Natal & a master’s Certification in Senior Adult Fitness. His training programs are focused on each individual client’s goals, needs, and current fitness level.

Matthew’s routines promise a fun, intense workout which clients will never find repetitive or mundane. His training philosophy centers on Core Muscle Strength, which is the foundation for a healthier mind, body and soul. Incorporated as well are Functional and Postural training which enhance individual fitness goals as well as general everyday activities.

Whether it’s another 10 yards on your Tee shot, that extra bounce needed in your step on the basketball court, help getting your pre-pregnancy body back, or simply the strength to flip your mattress by yourself, Matthew will definitely help you work hard to achieve the goals you desire.
