We heard you! Our members told us that they want a place to get expert advice about their fitness goals and practice, and talk to others with similar goals, without dealing with weight stigma, diet talk and negative body talk.
We created Fit Fatty training and support groups to meet this need. There are groups for people of all abilities and goals, all lead by fat fitness professionals. The groups will be virtual and will utilize a private listserve, a private facebook group and other technology that the group decides they want to use. You can join as many groups as you would like, with just a small fee for participating.
Group descriptions are below. You can pay a monthly fee, or save some money with an annual pass.
- Team 150 – for those working on the getting 150 minutes of movement per week (the amount many studies say is optimal for health). You’ll get support from the group, ideas for ways to get movement in, and access to the group leaders by e-mail for help and support
- My Fit Fatty Event – for people who plan to compete in an event this year. Whether you’re participating in a 1-mile walk for charity or an Ironman Triathlon, you’ll get help with your training program from certified fitness professionals, support, accountability help if you want it, and access to the group leaders by e-mail.
- My Fit Fatty Fun Group – this is a group for people pursuing movement just for the fun of it. No rules, no tracking, just support for what you are doing (help with form, injury prevention, etc.) and fun games around movement, plus access to the group leaders by e-mail.
- Team Zombie – this team will incorporate the Zombies Run! App for iPhone, iPod touch, Android and Google Phone into their training (https://www.zombiesrungame.com/), you’ll get support for using the app to reach your goals, get training and injury prevention tips, a group where you can share your Zombie kill prowess and access to the group leader by e-mail for support. Some members of this group may also choose to participate in the “Run for your lives” 5K (http://www.runforyourlives.com/)
