All of this is totally in keeping with the philosophy of Nancercize—get outdoors and use whatever you find out there! Here’s how to use curbs, scaffolding, street wall, and steps as your exercise equipment so you don’t lose your momentum.

One of the best ways to see what others are thinking about your ideas is through social media. I decided to share my concept and mission about “democratizing fitness.” Am I crazy? Or is this a great idea? Here’s a sampling of what my LinkedIn network had to say.

We’re all lead busy lives these days. You don’t need to decide between taking care of yourself and spending time with your family. Find out about over a dozen ways to get outdoors and get moving together.

The more people I talk to and work with, the more sure I am that outdoor exercise is the solution to so many fitness dilemmas.
