I love making themed workouts. Almost as much as I adore doing themed workouts. Last month, I started coaching online Zoom workouts for my old CrossFit box, South Island CrossFit during the coronavirus shutdown. And I decided if I’m going to lead workouts, I might as well have some fun. So I implemented Fandom Fitness Fridays. And today, my first and probably most dear to my heart fandom- The Legend of King Arthur.
Last week, I felt I had an inner conflict for which workout to post for 2/20. Steve Irwin, whose birthday was February 22nd, or a pet-themed workout. Last Thursday was actually Love Your Pet Day, and I thought it could be a lot of fun to do a workout centered around your pet.
The past few weeks we’ve had some fun with Joss Whedon and celebrating his contribution to the world of sci-fi, girl power, and geeky/nerdy fandoms. Three weeks, and three Tabatas. You’ll be pleased to know this week, I’m not doing a Tabata. No, no, a high intensity interval training workout with only four movements can’t cover all the awesome that is in this week’s workout. We have to create something…bigger.
Last week, I shared the first of three Joss Whedon universe workouts, inspired by Buffy: The Vampire Slayer. This week I’m dredging up another old Whedon television show that sadly didn’t last nearly as long as fans would have liked.

For the last workout of January, I wanted to give everyone one final version/modification for the Conservation Hero WOD I posted at the beginning of the month, Running the Zoo. Read More “ZooFit Workout of the Day- 1/30/20: Rowing the Aquarium”
My husband showed me this incredible documentary YouTube video about a man who ran a marathon in 24 hours. A different type of marathon, this was actually focused on how productive the man could be while running one mile every hour for 24 hours. He actually ran 3 miles the first hour, then set to do his “To-Do List” after completing a mile each hour. Read More “ZooFit Workout of the Day- 1/14/20: Productivity Workout for Writers”
This past Sunday was National Bird Day. That includes all birds, even those with their own special day later in the month, or the year. Friday the 10th of January is Save the Eagles Day, while January 20th is Penguin Awareness Day. Read More “ZooFit Workout of the Day- 1/9/20: For the Birds”
Confession time. I have horrible knees. Early stage arthritis in both knees plus some functional issues a few years back led to severe knee pain. I have gone to see physical therapists numerous times, and the number one recommendation I always get is “Strengthen you glutes”.

When I created my Conservation Hero WODs in 2017, I wanted a special workout dedicated to zoos in general. Zoos are great conservation organizations which work to protect and preserve the environment and animals on three separate fronts.
In keeping with the strength-building workouts from the last couple of posts, today I want to focus on the core. We’ve done other core workouts, like Save Our Seas, but ab workouts are great in that you can practically do them nearly every day. Our abdominal muscles are particularly strong and can take a fair amount of tearing and strengthening before they need to rest and heal. Read More “ZooFit WOD- December 12: Fit to the Core”
