WHY CALL US, "THE BARNYARD?"
In a traditional sense, a barnyard is made up of various livestock each with its own purpose and role to play. We created the Barnyard to prove fitness comes in various shapes, sizes and intensities. All of which can work in unison to improve health and wellness - and we're determined to prove it. However one thing stays the same - the day isn't over until the work is done.
The chicken may be small, but it can sure run fast. It symbolizes bringing endurance and stamina to the yard.
The horse is a force to be reckoned with, tall and strong. It symbolizes functional training as it has thick muscles, a large heart and powerful lungs.
The pig may be muddy and stout, but can outsmart and probably out-lift any animal in the yard. It symbolizes real-world utility and raw strength.
The cow is known for communicating through body language, specifically head, limbs and tail. It symbolizes awareness of the body while moving a maximum amount of weight with efficiency.
