Vermont has a beautiful park system, and in September, I’ll be giving a demo class, and then teaching a train-the-trainer workshop, at the annual Vermont Governor’s Conference on Recreation. This is the state recreation conference and the premier recreation training event of the year in Vermont. So, if you know anyone in Vermont who wants to be a Nancercize leader, let me know and I’ll get you in. Got a conference or other event in your neck of the woods? Let me know if you want a Nancercize presentation–complete with interactive moves designed to get you going.

Let's see.... what Nancercizes can we do on this fence?

Early Bird Workout indeed–we’ll be doing an 8:00 AM circuit around the beautiful grounds of Lake Morey Resort, the gorgeous site of the conference. Oh, how I suffer for my work.

This pavillion was made for dips, don't you think?

Immediately after, we swing into the Train-the-Trainer Workshop. I’ll be teaching participants to use Nancercize as a way to increase people’s use of parks for recreational fitness. We’ll be looking at park benches and other park features with a fresh eye and an open mind, and see how you can turn any outdoor space into a natural “green gym.” Want to learn how to put together a simple 10, 30, or 60-minute outdoor workout? How to adapt exercises to suit any level of ability? How to create a “fitness map”?

Come on down to Vermont!

Hey, they're warming up without me!
