Snow Angels (YEG)

I knew it was going to be cold, I knew that there was going to be a ton of fresh snow on the ground, I knew I was going to be sore from this and other workouts, but HOT DAMN I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO BE FUN.

There is something about a fresh dump of snow that makes me excited and gleeful. I feel like a kid again stomping through the piles of snow and rolling around in them. It certainly helps when you look at the forecast ahead of time and can layer properly (need help with layering? Check out this blog – next week is going to be super cold so this is important). Plus those extra clothes lets us do things like snow angels! If they don’t make you feel like a kid again then I don’t know what will. Thank you for playing along with that spontaneous idea this morning. The ground was littered with beautiful designs!! read more

Calling Audibles (PVD)

Today was one of those days where Mother Nature didn’t care for our workout. Holly and I spent a good amount of time putting together the what, the how, the why of this morning, only to get to the state house and see most of the staircase as sheets of ice.

New England winter can be tricky sometimes. It may snow a little bit overnight, and you wake up and it’s somehow 45 degrees instead. Or, like today, it gets progressively more freezing as your day goes on.

November Project SNOWGLOBE (i.e., the NP winter summit) is coming up in just over ONE week. HYPE HYPE HYPE!!!

If you’ve already purchased your ticket (and if not, buy yours here!), you’ll probably know that this weekend is all about connecting with other NP groups as well as bonding with members from your own city, doing some #FreeFitness, playing in the snow, and partying with other NP members from around the US and Canada! read more

Redlining the Morning (BOS)

No one ever shows up for the stadium and finishes the NP workout thinking, “welp, that was easy.”

It just doesn’t happen. What does happen is some variation of “holy shit, that kicked my ass.” “wow, that was hard.” “…does that ever get easier?!?” “that sucked…aaaaaand I’ll be back next week.” “I need to tell [insert all your friends’ names] about this, they’d love it.” or “I’m glad I showed up.” read more

London Bridges Falling down (Ottawa)

This title has nothing to do with the workout and everything to do with the “bounce” we did to start the morning off. We sang and played a game you may or may not have played since Junior kindergarten. Just a reminder not to take ourselves so seriously. Some how those mornings bring that kind of spirit out in us, even if weird, you know nobody is judging you for singing and laughing and enjoying the childish entertainment. We played on a bridge, ran around, worked with a team and moved our incredible bodies. read more

"I wish I could do that" Guest Blog (VB)

Sometimes you need to see a lot of sunsets before you finally see a sunrise. What last year taught me was immeasurable. 

I lost my soulmate in February. He was always by my side for the last 16 years. Max was my dog, my best friend, my fur child, and after his passing, I was lost, empty, scared and my instinct was to hide and to only see the darkness. But my November Project Virginia Beach Tribe and my “Hills and Thangs” NP group were there for me and they NEVER let me go down that path. It was even more amazing that just a few of them knew what happened, but they all helped me heal with their hugs, words, and support.
