Who are we Assassins?

 

We're a little bit nuts

But we get the job done

Let's start things off with a question for you:

 

Who is your favorite fictional Assassin?

(pictures encouraged!)

 

 

Are you a Jason Bourne fan?

Inspired by Beatrix Kiddo?

In awe of the nameless Hero?

Cheering for Mindy McCready?

Remember as you think of your answer, "Assassin" is a big concept!

 

It encompasses ninjas, climbers, gymnasts, traceurs, dancers, circus performers, and much more!

I used to picture myself as more of a scouty-rangery-assassin type, but that post was so far beyond epic I want to be an assassiny-scouty-ranger now!

Living out in the sticks without a driving license there are no clubs, gyms or anything of that kind that I will ever frequent, so any and all training has to rely on my google-fu. Have any of the NF assassins become somewhat proficient at parkour/tracing/movnat/murder alone via the interwebs?

Sadly my favorite fictional assassins do not exist in movie form.. I enjoy Royce Melborn from the Riyria Revalations series (Michael J. Sullivan) and Haern the Watcher from the Half-Orc/Shadowdance Series (David Dalglish). Honestly my real life 'assassins' would be military Snipers... I feel like they are rangery-scouty-assassins.. but I don't mind that =P

Lucky, there is a button just to the left of the font box for special bbc code. You can use the media option and put the url in the Media URL box. :D

Hi everyone! I'm new to the forums/6 week challenges but I'm so excited to start this one! I've read the Nerd Fitness article for a year or so now and joined the Academy a couple months ago but this is all new to me and I love all the support on here! I'm a relatively new climber but I love that, and I'm starting to get into calisthenics and want to learn to do cool gymnastic type holds and balances too. I don't really have any favorite fictional assassins but am inspired by real and fictional characters that train hard to do what they need to do, whether that's batman training to save gotham, to soldiers training to do their job, or even mothers exercising so they can keep up with their kids running around, it's all inspirational and encouraging to me! I'm also really inspired by female boulderers that climb ridiculously hard problems, I'd love to be that strong someday! I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you and leveling up as assassins together!

Followed ya.. Not going to lie.. starting today was daunting... I am upset that I'm still getting exhausted on 1 circuit of the BBW routine... I may try to add a 2nd circuit whenever I get home from work so I don't feel so bad. I was hoping to get started with a head of steam but getting started means I have to keep going and so I am a little daunted... BUT I got it done.. so baby steps and such

Akuyo, I tend to always do too much too soon when I work out and since joining nerd fitness I've followed the small changes approach and it has really been something that makes me feel like this is something I can stick with for life.  Doing just a little bit is better than doing nothing and if you do too much too soon you might burn out on it.  Don't feel discouraged, you're doing great with being able to do 1 circuit of it! by the end of this 6 weeks I'll bet you'll easily be busting out three sets! It's only day one, you'll get stronger for sure! You can do it! :encouragement:

I'm with bbonzo - small steps!  Start tiny - if one is all you can do for now, super.  Let your muscles recover instead of doing it again with poor form (which often happens when tired) and next time, try again!  You'll get to 3 sets in no time!

Uh, hi, guys.

I'm kind of new here... and a weakling... but I've started my first challenge!

I want to be a total master of my bodyweight, and show everyone that being strong is so much cooler than running out of energy, watching other people do things, etc.

 

Rock on, everyone.

The fluidity of movement in that piece is beautiful. And the feet. And the violin. Basically I love all of it.

Somehow I initially posted this in the wrong thread?

 

I'm a first level planning on splitting time as an Assassin and a Monk.

 

My main fitness inspiration is Captain America. While he's not an assassin per se, his movement, training and fighting styles are squarely in the assassin camp. I mean, c'mon:

But if we want characters who are assassins, we can just go with Cap's protégé Bucky and his close friend Natasha:

It might help that I think they're really cute together.

Hey there - it's late and I need to get to sleep, but wanted to pop in and say hello.  I'm a newbie recruit considering the Assassins.
 
Favorite fictional assassins? That's tough!  Of course, I have to go with a female assassin. First one who came to mine is Sameen Shaw of Person of Interest. Not super tough, but I like her attitude.  It's all about attitude.

And what about Leeloo from Fifth Element?

And then of course there's Trinity from Matrix!  Now that's attitude!

Oh what fun! 

BTW, when I try to use any of the tools on the toolbar - like to insert images or links or code it doesn't work.  I have to do any code or insertions manually.  With the toolbar, the pop-up locks up and I have to reload the page and re-write the post.  It makes me sad.  :(  

Anyone else have issues with that?

g'night!

ps: I noticed there are not many blonde assassins.  Why is that?
