Bar Hopping @ Verona Park, Verona

Verona Park has 4 workout stations, each focused on one type of movement (monkey bars, parallel bars, horizontal bars and balance beams) set around its 1.1-mile perimeter. Therefore, we'll be "bar hopping" around Verona Park for today's workout.

We'll meet at the boathouse for a brief warmup, after which we'll run between stations, stopping at each one to do a workout focused on each station's particular movement.


DIRECTIONS:

I created this map to help you find us.

If you're using a GPS, point it at Porcello Lane, Verona, NJ.

Or if you're really geeky (like me), use these GPS coordintes: [masked],[masked]

Park in the marked parking spaces on Porcello Lane.

 

TO FIND US:

We'll meet at the boathouse, which is right across from the parking spaces on Porcello Lane.

If you're attending, I suggest you message me in advance through Meetup so I can send you my phone #. This way you can call me if you can't find us when you get to the park.

 

NOTES:

Water: No water fountains in the area; bring a bottle.

Snack: Something to keep your energy levels up; a banana, some nuts or something along those lines.

Clothes: Dress in comfortable gym attire. Make sure it's something you're willing to get dirty. You may want to bring shorts or wear them underneath, as you will get hot after we start moving.

Jewelry: Leave jewelry at home, especially rings, which tend to get snagged on things and cause nasty finger injuries.

Towel: Bring one to put down on the seat for the ride home. Between sweat and dirt, your car will thank you.

Sunscreen and/or brimmed hat: Highly recommend you wear both. Pre-mature aging is no fun!

Weather: It can be unpredictable and absolutely affects our outdoor workouts. PLEASE check this page and (if you are RSVPed) your email prior to leaving the house. If weather is too iffy to cancel early, we may cancel it up to 1 hour before it starts, so be alert!

Être fort pour être utile...."Be strong to be useful."

      I still have the video but didn't seem easy to do bc it asked me to register, etc. when I have time, i'll tinker with it. thx

      Thanks, Susan! Take your time. Registration is not necessary.

      Here are the steps:
      1) Click the arrow to the right of "Upload File"

      2) A window will open up, navigate to the folder where you have the file and double click the file.

      3) The file will upload (it will take a while, since the file is large)

      4) After the file uploads, you'll be presented with a page that says "Link to share the file:" 5) If you copy that link and paste it as a comment here, we'll be able to download it.

      Thanks again!

    I'm walking like a frog now - not in public, at home, of course. Need the group's company!

    I've uploaded the pictures. I have a video of all of you.Not sure of how to get it unless I post to facebook?

    • Veronica

      You can also email it to you from your phone, open your email in your computer, download it into your computer and then upload it into meetup from your computer.

      Hi Susan, I think Meetup will only allow pictures to upload (sadly... they really need to update their site!)

      In the meantime, see if you can upload to http://www.filedroppe...­ and post the link here (after you upload, it will give you a link so you can share the video) - Let me know if that gives you trouble.

    This is the best meetup group. I feel so comfortable with you guys. Like we've known each other a long time. Great time! Great workout! So much fun! Thanks for carpooling us Gary!

  • D.A. G.

    A lot of fun! I think we all made progress in at least one area: climbing, balancing, vaulting, jumping, flexibility. Thank you Susan and Veronica for helping me with my spine flexibility!

      Ha, thank you! I have to give credit for the name to Gary. Things are going well. We have a handful of regulars showing up these days!

      Chip, you should have seen them hopping! Excellent!!!!!!

    Gary, you see - I had a reason to get nervous - my dog had only 1 drink this whole time I was out!

    Dave - I don't see the movie in Google+. I'll have to ask my son to find out what happened.

    Guys - I had a great time!

    Veronica, sorry if I sounded harsh about lab experiments. This is how I feel. I had a lot of bad life experience from the main stream medicine - many people losing their lives... people I loved...

    Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow! If possible, please bring a pair of workout gloves for your own use (I got mine at WalMart for about $12.)
