What do you get when ballet meets bodybuilding? A challenge like no other!! I was fortunate to team up with Joffrey Dancer extraordinaire, Fabrice Calmels to create a workout video.
Fabrice Calmels, is a classically trained ballet dancer with the Joffrey Ballet. Fabrice was tasked with the difficult test of adding muscle density tantamount to a bodybuilder for his starring role in Othello. While this undertaking would ordinarily not be difficult, Fabrice faced numerous obstacles such as a one month deadline and grueling 7-8 hour per day dance schedule. For the “meathead” guys out there who thought ballet was a “feminine” sport, think again. As you will see from my interview and workout with Fabrice, ballet requires athletic abilities far beyond typical sports.
Join Fabrice (and me) as we train with trainer, IFBB Pro, Chuck Sanow (Pro Bodybuilder/Chicago Fireman) at USA Gym. Viewers will be surprised at the challenges posed and will definitely be enlightened by Fabrice’s diet, supplementation, cardiovascular and rigorous training. Fabrice is not only humble, intelligent and kind but watching him dance is like heaven—true perfection!
Othello runs through May 5, 2013. Tickets for Othello can be purchased at http://joffrey.com/. For more information on Fabrice, check him out at www.fabricecalmels.com. This is a performance you will not want to miss!
Special thanks to Pride Nutrition for supplying the protein and supplements to assist Fabrice in his quest for muscle.
