Teotihuacan, Mexico

Teotihuacan, also called “birthplace of the gods” is an archaeological site in Mexico, 30 miles outside of Mexico City, include some of the largest pyramids built in the pre-Columbian Americas. The city is believed to have been built starting around 100 BC until around 250 AD. 


Up until it’s demise sometime between the 7th and the 8th centuries AD, it housed a population of over 125,000 people, making it one of the largest cities in the world at the time.


Because Teotihuacan began as a new religious center in the Mexican Highland around the first century AD, and held such a strong influence on the area at the time, it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.  Currently, it is the most visited archaeological site in Mexico.


My personal experience was that the training in Teotihuacan was unbelievable.  Even after 90 minutes of hardcore training, I felt rejuvenated and still had plenty of energy left.  I think that the environment and the monumental presence of the pyramids gave me the extra elan to perform at my best. Many scientists are convinced that the pyramids are places on specific energy fields that I definitely felt. I don’t know if it was a placebo effect, or actual unquantifiable energy, but even after several hundred flying push-ups, I did not feel tired, but still full of energy.
