Did you know there is Vancouver group pledging to become an official November Project tribe?
If you have heard of the November Project, you are probably very excited right now. And if you haven’t, keep reading to find out why you should be!
What is November Project?
November Project™ is a FREE fitness movement that was born in Boston as a way to stay in shape during cold New England months. Now present in multiple cities in across four time zones in North America, the movement is using a simple sense of accountability (verbal) to motivate and encourage people of all ages, shapes, sizes and fitness levels to get out of their beds and get moving. Our members vary from Olympic medalists, professional athletes, marathoners, triathletes, current and former collegiate athletes all the way to complete fitness rookies and recent couch potatoes just looking to kickstart their healthy life choices. If you think that you’re not fit enough to join the group, stop thinking and come see what the fuss is all about.
How can you join? Simple… Just show up!
The Vancouver pledge meets every Wednesday at 6:29am rain or shine!!! The best way to keep in touch is to join this Facebook community, check out my November Project Vancouver Pledge page, and read my latest November Project posts.
Don’t forget to tell all your friends! The November Project thrives on social media and word of mouth!
I attended last Wednesday’s event (May 20, 2015) along with 80-something other people and it was really amazing. First off, I was greeted with a warm welcome and a hug. There was construction happening in the plaza so everyone was being directed down the stairs to the seawall. At the bottom, there was a group gathered around one of the group’s leaders, Graham Snowden. We all huddled in close and started bouncing while the latecomers filtered in.
We then formed lines and ran (forwards and backwards), inchwormed, and high kicked our way along the seawall stopping to applaud cyclists and collectively tell pedestrians they are beautiful. It’s as much a social exercise as it is a fitness exercise! We were encouraged to introduce yourself to others participants and make friends. High fives are mandatory! Well, maybe not mandatory … but definitely strongly encouraged!
The rest of the workout involved jumping up stairs, pushups, step ups with highknees, planks, planks, and more planks! The workout ended as any good workout does, a victory photo! No smiles allowed as per November Project tradition and because we are BADASS!
If this seems intimidating to you, I assure you it is not. Everyone is very positive and all fitness levels are welcome so tell all your friends and come check it out! You will be happy you did!
