Anyone up for an April Fitness challenge?

I have been somewhat of a "cyber coach" over on RFT and would like to carry that over to this forum....so I am just wondering if there is an interest level here to post on a "fitness thread" daily to track your fitness and have a chance to share "war stories" with others tring to maintain and improve their fitness lifestyles while living a raw lifetyle.....If you are "in" to join the "gym" holler "I"....The type of exercise does not matter....run, walk, rebound, yoga.....whatever it is....JUST DO IT!!!!!

Well, you know I am in!
I have wanted to, for years, like since the early 90's, wanted to become certified to teach Jazzercise. For some reason, fear maybe, I have never challenged myself to "go for it" but your threads on rft have inspired me to do so. There is a certification coming up in October and I would need to be ready to be "viewed" by August. I don't necessarily have to be at any specific goal weight by then, but I must be fit aerobically and be able to do my moves by then. Then the workshop is in October.

So, I will post my "getting ready" workouts here.
Things are going much better on the eating end and I think I am FINALLY in my groove.

I'm in!

Hey NFracer and other fitness trainees!

Please count me in!

I will be doing exerstriding, rebounding and weightlifting at least 6 days per week. Please note that I need to completely lay off from running for the time being as my immediate plan is to fast (Master Cleanse) for at least 40 days. I could use some support.

Thanks, NFracer, for starting a fitness thread right here at RFC!

Happy fitness training!

Wayne

I am here, checking in for the April Fitness Challenge. As you know my schedule has been challenged for a few months now and I am finally seeing the light at the end of the Tunnel. I am increasing my work outs each week and want to be back to Daily Runs by April. So I am IN !

I am starting my MC fast today and aiming to break the fast on May 3rd.

Please note that this is going to be my fourth fast -- already did 10, 14 and 21-day fasts in the past two years.

My husband laughed his head off when he saw the book I checked out of the library: "Senior Fitness" by Ruth Heidrich. We are turning 51 this year. Nothing like being prepared. Anyway, she inspired me to start running again. She is a breast cancer survivor who is still running triathalons at 73 years old. Dr. John McDougall's program healed her and she's a raw foodie now. I'm throwing my visor into The Sunny Gym thread and will begin to run this afternoon after work and get back to the regular 6 miles I used to do. Lately, I've been walking, which is great but I have put on a few pounds. Thanks NFRacer for the extra push.

Hey Morn!

Exerstriding is known as pole walking (aka Nordic walking) It provides a total body workout while walking. You might want to check out the enclosed link for additional information:

http://walkingpoles.com/content/view/25/44/

I simply love my poles and they are great for my non-running days -- easy on my legs.

I hope this information answers your question. If not, ask away.

Happy fitness training!

Wayne
