Fitness Party

(jus’ you and tha girls)

By: Valecia Weeks, LMT

Have you ever thought in your mind, “I need to get a social life” ? Could it be that you’ve lost the excitement and thrill of working out? We as women sometimes need variety… something different. Sometimes even an outlet or perhaps a party would help. How about hosting a FITNESS PARTY!

 

Hosting your own fitness party is a great way to bond with your girlfriends who don’t mind getting a little sweaty. It is a great alternative to a cocktail party where high calorie alcohol is the guest of honor or a sales party where ladies may feel pressured to spend money that she may not have.

Here are some fun ideas for hosting your own FITNESS PARTY:

INVITE

  • Send your girlfriends an evite via email
  • Have her dress in fitness attire
  • Have her bring their favorite yoga, cardio or kickboxing CD
  • Have her also bring exercise bands, weights and any other items she may want to trade

USE YOUR IMAGINATION/ BE CREATIVE

  • Instead of hosting the party at your home, find a gym exclusively for women and see if the owner will host it for free
  • Most gyms have a “try before you buy” workout pass and will possibly welcome you bringing in your healthy snacks.
  • Most ladies’ gyms have fitness coaches who will lead you in workout sessions

PARTY FAVORS (most of these can be found at the dollar store)

  • Water Bottles
  • Jump Ropes
  • Water Flavoring Packets
  • Pocket Nutrition Guide

DEMONSTRATIONS (if hosted at your home)

  • Hire a personal trainer to come in and lead the fitness sessions
  • Add variety

HEALTHY FOOD

  • Anything colorful from the produce department of your favorite grocery store
  • Fat free dressing
  • Fresh fruit smoothies (made in your own blender)
  • Low fat Yogurt
  • Nuts

FUN & GAMES

  • Offer a door prize to the first lady to arrive
  • Offer a prize to the lady who can do the most wall or floor pushups in a minute
  • Offer a prize to the lady with the greatest flexibility

THE SWAP

  • Besides fitness videos, ask guests to bring other exercise-related items that they no longer want or use. Some ideas include: used workout clothes or shoes that are still in good shape, past issues of fitness magazines, group fitness passes to a local gym, etc.   Let her know that she can choose to loan her items or make permanent trades.
