#togetherbutapart is expanding!

Well I forgot to write a blog post yesterday (eye roll to the far back of my head).

We are thrilled to be underway with our #enduro challenge this month. We’ve got people joining our Edmonton crew from as far away as Minneapolis, Portland, Toronto, Chicago, and a couple of NPCan transplants to Pender Island. Welcome and I hope you’re all starting to find your groove with this challenge. But not too much. Rob and I will be challenging you (and us) all month long! read more

The (March) Madness is over!

Yep, that’s right. We done yo! Whether you were on a team or participated individually in the #bigteamsmallteam challenge, you crushed it!

We set out a kinda crazy kinda not so crazy (by NP standards) goal of completing 333,333 reps of exercises on MWF.

And, obviously, we crushed it. #togetherbutapart. read more

The April Endurance Challenge (YEG)

So far in 2021, we’ve done monthly challenges focused on the lower body, the upper body, and the whole body. Now with the snow slowly melting and our dreams of spring coming true, we’re switching it up to focus on our endurance every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in April.

If you haven’t signed up already please do so here (anyone globally is welcome to join): https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdLOZf5qVQthR-pPZTDWn1b_QIesXmomhqAEtWjAwfJaGCUEQ/viewform?usp=sf_link read more

I shared a little, you shared a little

Hey NP!

Anybody else hitting the “I miss everyone I know” lane yet? I’m hitting that haaard this week.

Also ~

I have to say, you all are amazing. Thanks for all the DMs, texts, conversations (some on the ski hill this past weekend), and quick calls. I know I shared something last week that may have brought up different thoughts or emotions for you. I hope you got my intention in sharing what I did cuz that part (intention) matters… a lot. read more

Read Monday’s Blog (YEG)

They say a picture is worth a thousand words:

Wait…was that technically a picture…hold on…


Idioms and and silliness aside if you have not had a chance to read the blog Lazina posted on Monday please take a moment to do so. Nothing about being a co-leader right now is simple or normal and her sharing her truth is a great way for you to start/continue to get to know the awesome person that is Lazina. read more

Seeing it through my eyes

I haven’t always felt included at NP.

I certainly did feel included and welcomed by Andrew, Jen, and Nadim. Since day 1 for me.

(I can’t believe that’s gonna me one up there one day… leading the bounce!)

But truly, I’ve felt left out at times. In my 6+ years of being part of the incredible NP community, I was never part of any groups that exist/existed. More specifically, I was never invited into these groups. read more

Day light savings (YEG)

It’s that time of year again. The high of seeing the morning slowly getting lighter and lighter is shot down by the resetting of our clocks. That said what it does mean is that spring is in the air and there is just something damn uplifting about knowing that warmer weather is on its way.

Great work to everyone putting in amazing effort and helping the ‘big team’ in its big goal of crushing 333,333 reps this month. Watching you social media or just hearing about your efforts have been the highlights of my day. We are well underway and my abs feel…well sore honestly haha. Not as sore as before the start of these challenges which is a nice confidence boost! I hope you are feeling good too. read more

299,235 of reps to go…. (YEG)

Take one down pass it around, 299,234 reps to go. Just rolls off the tongue doesn’t it haha.

Here we go, we set a big goal for March trying to get through a volume of reps and I think we’ll be able to get it done! Thank you to everyone who has signed up on a team and everyone who is submitted individually too. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed. read more

We done!

Just kidding.

We’re just done the February challenge… and what a challenge it was!

At Sunday’s NP virtual social, we announced the winners of the Feb #abovethebelt challenge. For highest rep count, the team that brought home the gold was Team Februas– Will, Sandra, and Darla. Congrats y’all! The NP spirit was pretty neck and neck but Team Hans, Franz, and Cousin Arnie finished with the win- nice work Emily, Kyle, and Lee-Ann! read more
