National Pi-Day Workout


National Pi-Day Workout Moriarty Physical Therapy

Welcome to the National Pi-Day Workout!  No this is not national PIE day but the mathematical symbol Pi day!  Since around 1988, March 14 has been a celebrated as Pi-Day for both Math fanatics and non-mathematicians alike.   For National Pi-Day, some members of our Team at Moriarty PT will be attempting this 3.14 themed workout.  The other reason we are performing a workout of this nature is to prove that exercise does not have to be limited to what we perceive it to be.  Exercise and working out has a stigma that it has to involve weights or a machine… and it must be in a gym.  Both of these beliefs are false.  This workout proves that you do not need equipment… just your body and some floor space to perform an exercise activity that will test your mobility, strength, and endurance!  The workout is split between a cardio-based section and a power/core based section.  This is a timed workout routine that will incorporate movement in all the major muscle groups in the body.  With these combined movements and NO WEIGHTS or MACHINES, a maximum heart rate can be achieved while reaching a level of exertion throughout the body.   National Pi-Day is a way of introducing the number Pi and it’s effect on mathematics, science, and physics to the world in a fun way.   Why not utilize this number as a way of breaking out of the old and tired mold of exercise and introduce a different philosophy for exercise!  Oh… and when we complete this Pi workout… we are DEFINITELY going to eat some Pie!

Come visit one of our physical therapy clinics in New York or North Carolina and one of our Doctors of Physical Therapy will do a 15-minute consultation to see if physical therapy is right for you. In the consultation, we’ll help determine the source of pain and movement restrictions to see if you would benefit from physical therapy or might need the assistance of another healthcare professional. If so, we’ll make a referral and help speed up achieving your health goal.
