Louisville Launch Backblast! KY’s first region!

  • When: 03/10/2018
  • Q: Popeye
  • Pax: 46 Fantastic FNG's came out for something new and left as part of something so much bigger than they know right now.

We are taking a new approach to FiA Frontier launches and going for one all-inclusive weekend full of information.  I’m super thankful for Francis for stepping up as the Regional Leader and facilitating the launch in addition to taking the helm to lead the region.  I’m excited for what is to come with the great group of ladies that showed up Saturday.

We started the workout with some brief info about what to expect.

Regional Leader : Francis aka Jenny Thomas

Workout:  Every Saturday at 8:15 at the Tennis Courts of Seneca Park

Your next Q: Francis

Here are those rubber-bottom gloves that I mentioned to some of you for wet days!

We started with a warm up.

46 women circled up and cycled through jumping jacks, squats, high knees, butt kicks, and side touches to the ground with a reach for the sky.  While we did these exercises, each woman took a turn running around the inside of the circle.

From there, we broke up in 6 groups for stations.  1 min each while getting to know each other:

squat, push up, lunge, dip, side plank dip and crunching toe touch.

We did each station twice and then mixed the groups for more opportunities to meet each other!

Round 2, 6 groups for stations 1 min each first round, 30 seconds each second round while getting to know each other:

mountain climbers, side shuffle, donkey kick, russian twists, seal jacks and carolina dry docks.

We finished up with aborama:

15 little baby crunches in cadence

10 flutter kicks

10 hello dollys

10 side crunches in cadence each side.

We left a little time at the end for naming.  Each group used their new knowledge of each other to come up with interesting names from Goddesses to Disney characters to reality and movie inspired names and beyond.

I loved the energy that each of you brought and hope that you will return next week, maybe with a friend!  I’m here for any questions that you may have or you can always follow up with Francis directly.  If you haven’t followed FiA Louisville on Facebook, please be sure to do so.  If you are interested in leading a workout or becoming more involved as the region grows, please get with Francis!  If you know someone in a different area who would love to help to bring FiA to their region, have them contact me at fianationexpansion@gmail.com

Thanks to everyone who came out for the workout and thanks to everyone who stayed after for the Q school and coffee!
