THE GUILD

The Assassins' Guild has gone through a bit of a metamorphosis over the last several challenges.  While we do count several traceurs among our ranks, the majority of Assassins are not focused on parkour but other disciplines.  We do encourage, however, a mindset that we think we share with free runners - Assassins love movement and fluidity, they thrive off of competition and cooperation equally, they prize efficiency, but most of all they are determined to master their own bodyweight.

 

We train anywhere, with anything, and in a myriad of ways.  The world is our playground.

 

COMMON TRAINING STYLES / THEMES

  • Calisthenics / Bodyweight (Al Kavadlo, Mike Fitch, BarStarzz)
  • Gymnastics (Gold Medal Bodies, Overcoming Gravity, Building the Gymnastic Body)
  • Hand-balancing
  • Movement / Flexibility / Mobility (Ido Portal, Animal Flow, Prasara, Mobility WOD)
  • Rock Climbing / Bouldering
  • "Odd" Object Lifting / Swinging (Kettlebells / Clubbells / Shovelglove / Sandbags / Challenge Ropes)
  • Wearing Black
  • Circus Arts (Pole, Trapeze, Contortion, Silks, Rope)
  • Parkour
  • Dance

COMMON CHALLENGE GOALS:

  • Body Recomposition (lose weight, gain weight)
  • Increase Reps (pull-ups, push-ups, pistol squats)
  • Increase Hold Times (handstand, frog/crow stand, levers)
  • Wear More Black
  • Workout / Train / Climb X Times per Week
  • Increase Flexibility / Mobility

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • How do I join the Assassins' Guild?
    When you signup for a six-week challenge, declare yourself an Assassin and then post your thread in our guild.  That's it!
     
  • Do I have to be lean/in shape to be an Assassin?
    No.  While extra bodyweight does make our type of training more difficult, Assassins come in all shapes and sizes and anyone is welcome to don the black.
     
  • How advanced in my training do I have to be to join?
    Assassin skill levels range from rank beginners to advanced trainees.
     
  • Can I still earn attribute points with the new challenge setup?
    Most definitely!  Points remain the same.

Hello again Assassins!
 

Time for another Challenge and we are going to rock it! This time the mini-challenge theme is handstands!

Most Wanted Assassins!
 

It's time for the first Most Wanted of this challenge! If a little late... sorry about that...

 

It was SO hard to choose this challenge so the Guild Leaders (and the Journalists) really want to make sure you guys know how awesome you all are! Seriously. It was an amazing start to the challenge and it was a really tough choice. 

 

But here are the Most Wanted Assassins of the first week!

Please give a warm welcome to your new slave Guild leader Hazard! He will have to handle the hard task to replace me in the Guild leader team along with the wonderful albeit computer-less Apfelstrudy and the dinosaur-type Vengefulpear!

 

Wish him good luck for his new duties!

Following on from Nuala's congratulations and welcome for Hazard let's hear from the gent himself! In case you haven't seen or heard Hazard moving about the forums then this is his little introduction :) 

So congratulations again :D 

 

Hello Guildies! 

 

I think most of you have seen me around.   Whether through my recruitment efforts on the Level 1 forums as an Ambassador, or as that shadowy presence here on the Assassin forum stalking your challenge updates behind the Like button.

 

 

It’s my pleasure, and my privilege, to accept more responsibilities now as an Assassin Guild Leader.

If you ever need any assistance or have any questions, please don't hesitate to drop in on my challenge thread or send me a PM!

 

 

Now a quick bit of Bio:

 

I’ve been a lifelong resident of the southeastern United States.  Soon to be living in Bacon, Georgia.  (The muggles pronounce it Macon, bless their ignorant souls).

 

 

Here’s some Nerd-Cred for you:

 

DampD2_zpscb3d4295.png

 

Old School representin’, yo.

 

 

Bodywise I’ve run the gambit from scrawny to obese.  And I’ve had a diverse fitness background.  Martial arts, Little League baseball, highschool track and R.O.T.C., college intermural volleyball, stick-fighting in the S.C.A.  Just to name a few things.   And now I’m here on NF learning really cool Assassiny skills.

 

I love this place.  I love you people!   I’ve read the forums of many fitness websites over the years.  None of them have come even close to having the kind of inclusive and supportive environment that exists here on Nerd Fitness.

 

You inspire me.  Your challenges.  Your struggles.  Your victories over them!

 

There is no place online that I would rather give my time and devotion to.   

 

The-Guild.jpg

 

Unless Felicia Day’s Guild ever becomes a thing.  Then maybe that.  :tongue:

 

But until then, it’s NF Assassins all the way!
