I (Jake) have been in Boston for the past week, and I must say…I miss you guys. I don’t like being away from the London tribe for too long! However, it’s comforting to know that we have the stronger half of the leadership team holding it down while I’m away. I just hope he’s not letting you watch too much TV and eat junk food. Sounds like last week was a healthy dose of stairs and burpees though.
On to important matters:
On December 1st we will be screening the film “showing up”, a documentary by the amazing film crew at Dooster. This dynamic duo who has shot loads of NP footage over the past several years have put together an inspiring piece. It’s not about the leaders, not about the hype of NP, but about the people who make up the fabric of our community and live by our motto “just show up”. The film profiles 7 individuals across 7 different NP tribes and tells their stories.
The diverse backgrounds of all these individuals really typifies the fact that NP is for EVERYBODY. One of the things this film reminds me of is that everybody has a story. All the interesting lives and experiences of NP tribe members I meet across the globe never cease to amaze me. It shows that if you take the time to hug it out, say hello, be kind to strangers, you never know what you might find. And to me…that’s a big part of what NP is about. And this doesn’t stop when the workout is over! If you make this a habit and carry this attitude out into your life, we think we are making the world a better place. Even if it’s just a little bit. But hey…you gotta start somewhere.
So on December 1st we are inviting you to come join us for a workout, some beer, some chat, and the screening of “Showing Up”. Meeting right outside, WeWork Paddington at 6:15pm, we will host a pop-up workout for those who want to get a taste of what an NP workout is like. Then at 7pm we will head inside for a few drinks before we get the film going around 7:45pm. We should be done around 8:30pm. For those of you who can only make it for the film, great, just try to get there in time to have a beer before hand. And please bring whomever you’d like! Tell all your friends, your enemies, your family that we would love to meet them and show them what we have been up to on Wednesday mornings.
Like everything at NP, this event is completely FREE. However we do need to let WeWork know you are coming so please RSVP using the Eventbrite link HERE.
Looking forward to it guys. See you on the 1st.
Jake and Tom
