Bring it all together

Shirley:
I think we went through that with Tyler. Because he was, yeah, two, so very similar to Indy now. So he grew up I used to do pull-ups and push-ups at home when he was very young. So he’s grown up seeing me do pull-ups, muscle-ups.

Craig:
Normal human movement, right.

Shirley:
Even when he was seven years old, he was like “Are you doing gold ups ups or ups muscle ups?” It’s just very normal for him. We used to be a little bit out of the box I was going to hang out a couple of boxes while I was pushing him on the swing or whatever. So now, he’s thirteen years old, he just thinks we’re …

Craig:
Yeah, I know he does not think that everybody’s weird.

Shirley:
He thinks we’re normal. He thinks we’re normal.

Craig:
But I’m wondering does he notice the difference? Does he look at other adults and go, “Clearly, sir, you can not do a pull-up.”

Chris:
He’s definitely got some insight on that I think. I think only now, only recently, being thirteen, you still have to be a little bit different. We had kettle bells as doorstops. We did not have a sofa, but we had a squat rack in our living room for more than a year that he would use as a climbing frame. We used to squat and we would have used to dry our clothes. It was just a piece of our home in our living room.

Craig:
It’s actually multi-functional. Unlike a sofa, which you can only do one thing with it.

Shirley:
It is, exactly.

Chris:
He’d go to his friend’s house and they would not have a squat rack in the living room.

Craig:
Where’s your squat rack?

Chris:
Exactly. So I think only now and only recently …

Craig:
Him walking in and being like, “But wait, how do you guys do squats?”

Shirley:
“How do you train? Where do your parents train?”

Chris:
“Where do you keep your kettle bells?”

Chris:
So yeah, I think only recently that we are just starting to realize that we are upbringing our lives. I think we should believe that when you have children should not be the end of your life and the beginning of theirs.

Craig:
Right.

Chris:
You should be able to enjoy your lives. So if we enjoy training and it’s a part of our lives, we shouldn’t suppress that. We should just find ways to bring it all together.

Shirley:
And just adapt.
