12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — After five years in development, world-renowned fitness expert Greg Plitt today announced the online pre-order launch of the Metaball Fitness System, an innovative piece of exercise equipment that combines sets of dumbbells, kettle bells and a medicine ball all-in-one, for portable workouts in the privacy of your home, office, or hotel room. Starting at $119.99, the Metaball Fitness System is designed to work your entire body on the go, using a combination of high intensity interval and metabolic training enabling your body to not only firm and tone, but to also burn calories for hours post-workout. Its compact patented design is adjustable so you can easily build various levels of weight, training mechanisms and routines. Twelve challenging Metaball Workouts have been exclusively designed by Plitt himself to work with the Metaball Fitness System to help transform and give people with busy lifestyles the body they have always wanted.
He said he and other drivers and trainers have to wind their horses down in the event of a cancellation by taking them out for a workout. Dirk Simpson, a Springfield horseman and stable manager, agreed that the uncertain race schedule during the fair makes it tough to get horses ready to race, but he said the poor weather isn’t all bad. They (the horses) have been racing pretty much all year long, and most of them are in pretty good condition anyway, so probably a few days off with some light jogging will do them all some good, Simpson said. They’re like athletes. You try to peak them on a certain day as far as your training goes, he said.
