Missionary Workout Video – “La Pintana Burnout”

Missionary Workout Video – “La Pintana Burnout”

Missionary Exercise Video

Shared by President David Cook (mission president of the Chile Santiago South mission), this video was made to motivate the missionaries to exercise during their scheduled exercise time each day. These missionaries are serving in one of the most challenging parts of Santiago, Chile – an area called La Pintana. It would be the equivalent of South Bronx or Compton.



The caption says “This video captures the exercises needed to survive La Pintana.” I served in Santiago in areas similar to this and I personally know what these areas hold. Everything from dog doo doo, to cuddly drunks, big dogs and people with guns. Missionaries are definitely protected in areas like this.
Make sure you stretch before trying these at home!Missionary Exercise Video

    • David Cook is the one who posted it originally on his facebook page. He is the mission president who directed this. I bet he would be the best one to ask. 🙂

  1. Can I really get this by calling the 800 number? I have two missionary sons and they are asking me to find them a good workout. This I believe will work for them.
