Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the seminal characters of the video gaming world.  When he was the mascot for Sega’s game console empire, he rivaled even Mario in both popularity and game sales.  Since Sega’s financial troubles led the company to drop out of the console market, Sonic has begun to appear in other game franchises, even teaming up with his old rival, the Italian plumber.

So what makes Sonic, Sonic?  Well honestly, for the most part, it’s his speed!  Sonic is really, really fast.  Being the fastest thing alive is his claim to fame.  In the Sonic the Hedgehog Workout, we’re going to obviously be running, a lot.  We’re also going to work in some drills for footspeed, and reaction time.

Sonic’s not just fast, however, he possesses other skills as well.  In the Skills of Sonic, we’re going to look at parkour a bit more, namely wall kicks and wall jumps, as well as how to properly plan out a running route.  Sonic’s we’re also going to work a bit more on reaction time.

Last but not least, in the Optimism of Sonic, we’re going to peer into the mind of our small, spikey friend.  We’re going to look at how a cocky-yet-upbeat attitude can affect those around you, and how staying positive will help you overcome the obstacles you face.

So that’s it for today!  I also hope you’re enjoying the new site!  There’s still a lot of work to be done, don’t be surprised if links are still leading to the old blog for a bit, I have to go through the archives and re-link all the posts.  It’s worth it, though, I have a lot more power and creative control over the blog’s appearance and functionality now, which is awesome!  Look for cool things coming down the pike!  Tomorrow we continue with The Sonic Workout!  Until then, make sure to like the Facebook page, follow me on Twitter, and go follow the Tumblr as well.  As always, keep being awesome!
