Shakespeare your way to better health!

Written & Submitted by: Juarez, Francis Lorenzo R. (2005-78278) Eng 23 WFR; Prof. J.C. Ick

Who would have thought that the great playwright’s influence would extend to the realms of fitness? A theatre company from the U.K. has started a fitness movement called, “The Great Shakespearean Workout”, which incorporates the theme of Shakespeare’s only greek inspired play, “Troilus and Cressida”, and the fundamentals of aerobics to produce a fun, informative, and effective workout. The 1623 theatre company’s movement has been awarded the London 2012 Inspire Mark. The Great Shakespearean Workout uses a mix of aerobics, kung fu, and tai chi in an interactive fitness session to explore the language and characters of Troilus and Cressida.
