For When We Meet Again…

We are getting close to returning to IN PERSON workouts. The location will be at City Hall (where we meet all winter). We have some GREAT IDEAS. We know you are excited, we are too- but please keep reading, and when you finish, read it again. This is SO important.

Please review this blog written by Bojan :

When We’re All Together Again

Hi November Project, it’s been a while since we’ve all been together. As the world is figuring out how to come back from the pandemic and more places are going back to in-person workouts we’d like to share some things that every NP member will have to follow in order to maintain health and safety of our communities. There will be things that are very specific to your location and your co-leaders will be sharing those when the time comes, but these are directions that will apply to all November Project cities:

Personal Contact
I’m sure that many of you are longing for the days where you’ll be able to embrace your friends with a tight hug, high-five, or a fist bump. Unfortunately, there are still many uncertainties that are surrounding COVID-19 so until further notice, please make sure to refrain from engaging in physical contact with your fellow members before, during, and after the workout. Consequently, all workouts will be designed to follow this directive (no partner exercises, close encounters, etc.)

The Bounce
This is another NP staple that will have to take a back seat for a foreseeable future as having people in a tight space chanting and engaging in call-and-response is something that we don’t deem safe under the circumstances. We know that for some of you, the bounce is a great way to get into the mindset of the workout and we’re encouraging Co-leaders to come up with different creative ways to engage in introductions that will get you fired up to get going.

Wearing Masks
For those choosing to wear masks or a face covering while working out, we encourage you to participate at the level that is comfortable for you but please be aware that the mask can increase the workload and cause unnecessary strain on your body. If you are feeling light-headed, dizzy, or short of breath, please find a safe place to take a seated rest, slow your breathing, and hydrate. As always, locate a Co-leader and call your local emergency number if you are in need of medical attention. You do not need to wear your mask during the workout, but we ask that you have it for before and after.

Before starting the workout, all members (new and old) will have to sign an online waiver that can be found by visiting this link or in the website top navigation as well as the footer, in the link named “Waiver”. Participation in November Project workout will not be allowed without a signed waiver. We are able to check to see who did and did not sign this, PLEASE do it.

Have Fun!
We understand that some of these things may not feel like the days of “old” November Project, but the beauty of this community is its willingness to adapt to the circumstances and make the best out of the situation in service of the greater good. We appreciate your help in making the re-opening of NP as seamless as possible.

And a few more things in addition to this:

If you have traveled , please respectfully quarantine yourself for 2 weeks.

If you or ANYONE in your home is ill or experiencing ANY symptoms, please stay home. We do reserve the right to ask you to leave the workout if you appear to be ill.

If you find out you are positive for the virus, Please reach out privately to Peanut and/or Jim so we can take the proper steps. Your privacy will always be protected, but we have actions we need to take.

None of this is meant to sound like NP won’t be fun, or there are too many rules, but regardless of what your stand is on Covid, it is real, and we all have to be respectful of each other. This will help us from having to stop the workouts again and return to Zoom. No one wants to do that. NO ONE.

Please remember to hydrate, bring water to the workout with you, and make sure you leave the workout with everything you brought.

Moms or Dads with children, please make sure to keep your kids within a few feet of you at all times.

Dogs are allowed, but they must stay with you during the workout.
