November Project™ is a FREE fitness movement that was born in Boston as a way for two founders, Bojan and Brogan, to stay in shape during cold New England months. Now present in 49 cities around the world, the movement is using a simple sense of accountability (verbal) to motivate and encourage people of all ages, shapes, sizes and fitness levels to get out of their beds and get moving. Their members vary from Olympic medalists, professional athletes, marathoners, triathletes, current and former collegiate athletes all the way to complete fitness rookies and recent couch potatoes just looking to kickstart their healthy life choices. If you think that you’re not fit enough to join the group, NP suggests you stop thinking and come see what the fuss is all about.
Atlanta is the 44th tribe to join 49 cities around the world! There are thousands of people who now are a part of this community around the globe. In this episode Alexa Lampasona - one of the ATL tribe leaders, along with Christian Lopez - talks about the concept and mission behind November Project, what they stand for, describes the history of origin for the recently established November Project ATL tribe, and how she finds meaning and purpose in the work (or should we say play?) that she does.
