I have to admit, I am beginning to feel a little like a broken record. Last year at this time, we were concerned about the Amazon rainforest fires. In January, we were hit again with the tragedy unfolding in Australia and the wildfires devastating the country. And now, with wildfires devastating the state of California and poor air quality crossing international lines, we find ourselves asking, one more time, “What can I do about the wildfires?”.
Today is one of those rare days where I get to mash together several of my geeky passions- animals, fandoms, conserving resources, and fitness. It’s National Wildlife Day, so I decided to celebrate with a fandom known for its…wildlife? Sorta. Rare and unusual animals to say the least. Today we’re celebrating Fandom Fitness Friday with a special Pokemon workout.
August is Back-to-School month, and I wanted to celebrate with a special Fandom Fitness Friday. One of my favorite books growing up was Anne of Green Gables. The story of a young orphan who comes to Avonlea and embarks on many adventures with her classmates is perfect this time of year. And the Anne of Green Gables mobility workout is perfect for this school year in particular.
It’s Wednesday, and we know what that means. It’s time for Wildlife Wednesday Workout, and today is a special program honoring World Elephant Day. August 12 is World Elephant Day, so let’s celebrate the largest living land animal with a fantastic strength and endurance workout.
What is the most endangered marine mammal in the world? It’s the adorable vaquita porpoise, with a depressingly low population of as few as 10 individuals. If any animal needs a day for raising awareness, it’s the vaquita. Luckily, today is International Save the Vaquita Day. And I wanted to share a super fast ZooFit awareness challenge to honor these “pandas of the sea.”
When I created Fandom Fitness within the ZooFit program, it was mainly a combination of my passion for all things geeky and nerdy and as enrichment, a way to make fitness more fun and engaging.
I love making themed workouts. Almost as much as I adore doing themed workouts. Last month, I started coaching online Zoom workouts for my old CrossFit box, South Island CrossFit during the coronavirus shutdown. And I decided if I’m going to lead workouts, I might as well have some fun. So I implemented Fandom Fitness Fridays. And today, my first and probably most dear to my heart fandom- The Legend of King Arthur.
Today is Arbor Day, a day to truly celebrate trees and all the wonderful gifts they bestow on our lives. And in true ZooFit fashion, I developed a wonderful (quick) Arbor Day fitness challenge to honor trees and bring awareness to how much they need us.
Today is Save the Elephant Day. Since this month I am dedicating all my workouts to Conservation Heroes, today’s workout is titled “Life, Love, and Elephants” in honor of Dr. Dame Daphne Sheldrick. Read More “Earth Month Conservation Hero Workout – Life, Love and Elephants”
