What a great idea! Instead of just getting together to hang out &/or to watch movies or the like, this actually encourages people to get moving, as well as to trade ideas & equipment, etc.. Recycling's a great idea, as is getting together with friends. :)
LOVE IT! Thanks for the great article and idea! Seems like a community/neighborhood clubhouse would be a great place for this, if you have one. In the summer you could even go for a swim or hot tub afterward.

This is such an original idea! I absolutely love it!
Sounds like a great idea. Too bad my apartment is WAY too small. Plus I feel guilty doing an exercise tape alone in the apartment (the downstairs neighbors probably think a heard of elephants are running through!) but when I finally move to a house, this might be our housewarming party! :)
Recently I went to a Health and Wellness party. There was a big turnout but in the end it was a woman trying to sell her expensive vitamins and magic potions. It did however get me to thinking that I would to continue the idea. Perhaps invite a nutritionist or a trainer. I love the water bottle and pedometer ideas. A new take on the tupperware parties of yesterday.
CAPEJIM, I can see it working for men. Your options may be limited and the invitations may be too formal but a day of golf where you walk the holes instead of ride in the cart. Invite someone that can teach the basics or help with different strokes. Toss around a football, soccer or play a game of hoops before you watch the game. Have a couple of healthy choices for snack rather than the nachos, chips and beer(if you drink that).
Just think, we can start a new rave!

Interesting but not my cup of tea. I am a solo exerciser, period.
