Our First Year Anniversary was All Fun and Games🤗
For our warm-up today, PAX were good sports as we got to “shake it all about” with the Hokey Pokey! Starting in plank, we pulled our right foot in, pushed it out, pulled it in & shook it all about. We moved in a a tight circle while holding plank and jumped up with a clap to “that’s what it’s all about”. We repeated similar movements in plank position with our hands, elbows, hips, head, “whole self” and “backside”. ☺️
Transitioned to open field for red light, green light game. 🚦 When “green light” was called PAX moved forward toward cones in distance performing traveling movement. When “red light” was called, PAX stopped to perform an exercise in place. “Yellow light” was called for PAX to jog it out. Switched exercises when we reached the cones.
