November Project – 2016 – A New Hope

The New Year has begun. The opportunities for NP_YYZ to grow and prosper are numerous. We have come a long way since 2015 and we take with us into 2016 all that we have learned and value because, after all, somebody has to save our sense of community. This is where the Force of November Project flies in and the Tribes Strike Back against all that divides us and impart a New Hope that in any city, in any part of the world, we can collectively be One. Equals in the WorldTakeover using the Force.

The Force = combined Spirit of Fitness, Love & Community, which manifests inspiration, friendship, and improved health.

For November Project our ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Humanity creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings we are, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you, here between you, me, the tribe, the city, everywhere, yes.

When people hear of November Project there are varied reactions. This is influenced by the Dark Side. A tribe’s strength flows from the Force but beware isolation, fear of the unknown and stagnation. The Dark Side they are. Community is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. But those who have not experienced November Project and its endless supply of hugs don’t know this….yet. When a workout is described some say, “Oh my. November Project sounds rather perilous. I can assure you they will never get me to go to one of those dreadful workouts!” or if the enthusiasm of the testimony comes across as too good to be true others are inclined to think, “IT’S A TRAP!” Sceptics be like, “This is not the New Year’s Resolution you are looking for.” Fear is the path to the dark side but we, members of the tribe, know that there is a place for everyone and so we would be honoured if you join us.

The opposite reaction occurs on occasion too; some would hear of this super amazing free fitness movement and say, “Help me, November Project. You’re my only hope.”

People on the fence, “One thing’s for sure, we’re all going to be a lot thinner.”

Then you have the odd wookie show up, “Urrrrrrr Arrrrrrgh!”

When Pledge TO Fitness was officially named November Project YYZ; Claire & Sam (with huge grins & fists clenched in triumph), “Now witness the power of this fully operational Toronto Tribe!”

Brogan & Bojan, “We never doubted you…..Wonderful!”

The tribe was strengthened in many ways. Some members had already been introduced to the power of the Force. “I’ve been waiting for you, NP_YYZ. We meet again, November Project. At last, the circle is now complete. When I left NP_DC, I was but the learner; now I am a master.” – Grady

“The Force is strong with you. A powerful member of the Toronto tribe you will become…” – Claire & Sam

Overheard at a workout. First day: “Burpees! Now that’s a word I have not heard in a long time.”

How a member of the tribe attacked the workout: “I think I just blasted it.”

Sam and I received invaluable advice from Legendary November Project Leaders: “Search your feelings,” “Your focus determines your reality,” “Stay on target!” “Do or do not. There is no try.”

Thank you to all of our tribe members, you have taught us well.

Remember……the Force will be with you, always.


In other news, as most of you know, I am returning to school in Hamilton and must also live and work there full-time (starting next week!) and as such needed to invite a kick ass member of our tribe to take my place as co-leader and clearly it was meant to be as she is more than ready to be the next best thing to happen for NP Toronto! I am so stoked for Michelle, and can’t wait to see how the tribe flourishes under her and Sam’s leadership. Big things are happening for NP_YYZ in 2016. You can bet your cold butts I will be popping up at workouts whenever I can because, “You’ll find I’m full of surprises.” 🙂



The positivity award was positive to the max this week as Michelle was the recipient. Double prizes!

Now get out there and make 2016 the best fuckin’ year yet, ya bunch of scruffy looking nerf-herders 😉
