    Such a great and creative idea!
  • This sounds perfectly awful and then some. Also an introvert and older. Not ashamed of my body just don't know people who would even think about doing something, well so, stupid. I know I am old but why would anyone want to do something like this. Even in my teens and twenties I preferred to exercise in solitude with solo activities - running, biking, X-C skiing. The only multi-tasking I did was taking the time to think and experience the silence.
  • Hey, I still use those Jane Fonda videos. I also have several new Belly dance DVD's (Amazon is great for new stuff). If you want cheap DVD's, Goodwill here generally sells them for 25 cents. Of course that means you have to have an antique video machine. :)

    Think of me when you belly dance, I am over 60 and the last class I took everyone was young enough to be my daughter or granddaughter. It is great fun.

    Can my gang of friends consist of just my cat? As an introvert with body shame issues, this sounds horrific. Not everyone is into group activities. I'm sure that extroverts would find this a fun, healthy, bonding time. Introverts would find it hugely stressful. I'd love to see some more " Joyously Alone Time" activities.
  • Throwing a fitness party should be fun.
  • Very creative idea! Just don't think my carpet would lend itself well to exercising. Need to have the right room.

    I know not one single soul who would come to such a party, seriously, even if I offered free Gelato!!
  • Sounds like fun. Thanks for sharing.
  • Loving it. Great.

    Wow! This idea is so far out of my realm of experience. I've been a loner since I was a child, and about the closest I've come to this is attending a couple of free Zumba classes. I do everything alone!
  • When you have 27 friends that run/walk with you 7 days a week, set a goal to finish within the top 1/4 of a race be it the Race for the Cure or a Hunger/Food Bank race, accomplish the goal, it's always a fitness party.
  • I did pin this article, however, great to share.
  • My apartment's so small it could only fit one person but I imagine it could work at the local indoor rink. I'm on disability but maybe I could spring for admission for 2 friends and give them goodie bags after. I doubt they would have any fitness tapes or equipment and none of us are the same size. We don't even have DVD players or TVs, only computers, though I guess that works. I just rely on YouTube. Good idea, tho.
  • I threw my fitness party! Here's my post about it: http://notevenclosetomartha.blogspot.com/2
