First and foremost, thank you to those of you who joined the free online course AND welcome to those who are new here!
Online course creation has been a year in the works. I’ve been working on ways to share my knowledge and experience with as many people as possible!
If you know me, you know my driver in my life is to help people find the joy in physical activity and moving their bodies.
When the opportunity to create a course was literally in my face, I decided to jump in with both feet and produce something that wasn't even on my radar a month ago.
Truth be told, this last week was a large learning curve. My idea to build and share a free online course was a large leap forward. Hiccups and uncertainties,I forged ahead with putting something out there that I believe could be helpful for many.
I'm an open book. 📖
Ready to share what I have with you.
New technology, fears and all.
It is a privilege to land in your inbox and please know that you decide whether or not I am here.
I love to share all things physical activity related, so stick around!
If you haven’t yet enrolled in the free online course - Top 3 Problems With Outdoor Walking: An detailed guide to the unexpected tips about outdoor walking - know that you still can access it here.
If you have worked through the course, please reply back to this email with any feedback you may have.
And as I do, here are a few more resources that you may find interesting that I found this week:
U of C's CovidCast Episode 2
A podcast with guest, Dr. Tish Doyle-Baker, who is a researcher in physical activity and public health (and a great colleague of mine), about Covid-19 and physical activity
A Call to Action: Physical Activity and COVID-19
A great summary from the American College of Sports Medicine outlining the benefits of physical activity during the pandemic
Physical Activity Forum: Living Actively with a Chronic Condition
A free online half-day conference on May 5 with the focus on the science and best practices around being physically active when living with one of the following chronic conditions: cancer, chronic heart failure, or stroke
That's it from me. Again, I'd love to hear what you think about the free online course. If you have any suggestions for future online courses, be sure to let me know.
Stay well and happy moving,
P.S. Looking for inspiration to get moving? Head on over to the Why I Move Project. It's my passion project of curating stories of WHY people are physically active. Care to share? I always love hearing your stories.
