What we're about
Upcoming events (5)
Join Betties and Buddies for an easy lap around the lake (10-11 min/mile pace), with the option to end with a few sprint intervals. Jog/walkers welcome. After the run, we will meet back at the stadium for stairs, yoga and/or strength training circuits. See the comments section below to find out what is happening this week. GET YOUR GEAR: For the strength/circuits portion, you may find WORKOUT GLOVES useful--gardening gloves with rubbery grips work quite well. NOTE: If it is your first time joining us, you may wish to arrive 5 min. early to allow enough time to find us and call for directions in case you get lost. Please message me ahead of time for my phone number. I don't have internet or a way to check email or MeetUp at the lake. THIS IS A RECURRING EVENT
To gambol is to run around playing excitedly. Although the word sounds like "gamble," when you GAMBOL, you never lose — you just have a great time! The Wednesday GAMBOL continues! Get some headphones with a mic, get outside and sign in to Zoom. We will be running a virtual simulation of the traditional GREENLAKE GAMBOL featuring all of the essential elements: Warm-up trot to the "wading pool" Cardio/Strength circuits Trot to Bear Crawl Hill. BEAR CRAWL HILL! "Pretty Bench" Abs/Push-ups Stairs "Trash can skipping" back to wherever you came from. NOTE: You may want WORKOUT GLOVES (gardening gloves with rubbery grips work great) for push-ups and other hands on the ground work. Trust me, you will be glad to have them when we hit BEAR CRAWL HILL. THIS IS A RECURRING EVENT
Join us for "Free Fun Fresh Fitness w/ Friends" Friday Workouts on Zoom! It's FREE, it's FUN and it's OUTSIDE! What we will do: bootcamp work out, featuring high intensity cardio intervals, mixed with strength circuits, games, challenges and hill sprints. What to bring: gloves, water bottle, mat or towel, jump rope and 5-10 lb hand weights if you've got 'em. I will be signing in to ZOOM! at 7:00AM from my driveway before doing a warm-up trot to the field with a set of 8 lb hand weights. This is a good time for introductions, checking-in with one another and chatting before we get going on the actual workout which begins once I get down to the field. This weekly recurring event is open to "Betties&Buddies"--feel free to bring your "buddies"!
Join us for a Zoom workout from your basement, your front yard or a local park--wherever you go is up to you! After you RSVP and identify yourself as a female with a genuine interest in joining our virtual workout, I will send you a Zoom link and a preview of the workout (if I have one). What you need: -A freshly charged device with the Zoom app. -Headphones with a mic (so you can run and chat at the same time!). -Workout space—either inside or out. -A bench or chair that you can use for “step-ups" -Mat or towel -Jump rope (if you have one) -Stretchy band (if you have one) -Weights, if you got ‘em (most of our work will be bodyweight exercises) -Water bottle This is how it usually goes: I load up my wagon with weights and gear and take it for a "wagon pull" to a local park. I sign in to Zoom at 6:30A, lead a short warm-up, then launch in to a 50 min workout involving strength and cardio circuits. At the end, we do a short cool down, trade virtual high fives and then I trundle my wagon back home, feeling happy that I got in a good workout and spent some time with my fitness friends!
