Last Saturday evening I met up with a smallish group of people getting ready to head to BlogHer 09. Since we were small, and mostly knew each other, it was more a chance to catch up on our lives and act as cheerleaders/advisers in the paths we were taking.
When it came to me, we all spent (yay!) about 45 minutes planning how I could work independantly to train individuals in the bay area. I have been haunted by a phrase I pasted on my Vision Board for this year: Meet Your Mobile Trainer. The phrase struck home with other there and has become a way to focus myself.
Among the ideas was a “30 days to BlogHer” kick off bootcamp, which will have to held next week for the numbers to work. In working to plan the camp, though, I really prefer to think of it as a “play camp” instead of a boot camp. Something about bootcamps sound hard and militaristic and just not fun. But wouldn’t people be willing to move more if they thought that exercising could be fun? (if you read MizFit, you know that this one of her themes).
So I’m adding in elements like skipping and passing balls to each other. I’d be tempted to try wheel barrow races but I fear for grown womens’ upper body strength -and their competitive natures. Jumping rope and hop scotch are likely activities…
Find the play in the work feels right to me. What do you think?
