Because I attended NerdFaire and caught the Fandom Fitness bug while there this weekend, I have decided to dub February “Fandom Fitness Month”. Every Tuesday this month I’ll be sharing a fun Fandom Fitness workout. And we’re going to center it around a particular individual this month, the incredible Joss Whedon.
For the last workout of January, I wanted to give everyone one final version/modification for the Conservation Hero WOD I posted at the beginning of the month, Running the Zoo.
