Well, what else can be said about the month of March, other than it was something else? What started as a normal month turned into a huge adjustment for everyone. While it was (and continues to be) an uncertain time, we were able to adapt and continue on our fitness journeys in new ways. After the first week of March, everything moved to virtual, and we welcomed a new location to the Fitness Inspired community with the starting of our inaugural group in Grand Rapids, MI! Fitness Inspired is all about the community we create and we are happy and excited to grow that community even more!
Route 66 is now open!
Well that didn't take long! 3 months in and we already have a couple of drivers hopping on to Route 66 on their fitness journey in 2020! Look as Katie B and Karen L already achieved 66 workouts in 2020 and we are only a quarter of the way through the year! Expect to see some more traffic soon...
What about that crown?
Getting 20 workouts in during one calendar month is definitely a difficult, yet achievable goal. Getting that goal gets you one prong on your crown and let's see where we are at. So far, we have 7 different people who have at least one prong of their crown. Going a perfect 3 for 3 so far this year are Katie B, Karen L and Suzy S!
March, The Luck Makery
While it may not seem like we were very lucky this month with everything going on around us, it is important to focus on what we can control and what does make us lucky. We are lucky that we are able to maintain our Fitness Inspired community during this time and we are lucky that we are able to adjust and adapt by moving everything to virtual programming. It is incredible what we are able to accomplish when we are faced with a challenge, and this month was no different in that aspect.
We had some challenging homework and physical testing this month that really had our muscles (especially upper body!) screaming. We were brave in our belief, language and actions, did some insane pushup combinations, and of course did everyone's favorite - burpees. Let's check out some physical testing highlights:
Those we some great results, and we had a great time celebrating them at our Virtual Results Party/Game night! It may have to be a new tradition even when social distancing is in our past. A great way to finish out this month, and now we are starting April with a fresh start, a chance to adapt to our new temporary reality and attack it head on. Here is to April being Healthy and Strong!
Thank you for lifting each other up and cheering each other on every step of the way! I am so proud of the progress I see in you from month to month. I hope the progress in mindset, physical challenges, adherence, and measurements motivates you as it does me.
