MAY: Trainer Spotlight!

Trina Harris  gets the spotlight this month, for her recent Chicks trip to Fredericksburg and Enchanted Rock!

As you know, the benefits your chicks get from Fit Chicks extend well beyond three hours of workouts each week. The community that you build for them, with a culture that is supportive and empowering, means so much to them. Several of our trainers do "Girls nights out" and fun activities outside of camp. But if you are looking for something really different that can be a tremendous experience for both you and them, consider some things like Trina did recently. We realize not all of you will be able to do an out-of-town weekend trip like this, but some aspects of this can be found locally with different types of team-building activities. Here's what Trina shared...

  • 11 Chicks went, which was a really good sized group for the first trip
  • We had lots of time bonding on the car ride, it was amazing!  Took 4 cars and the girls chose who they wanted to ride with 
  • Played some games along the way -- For example, after our lunch stop, everyone "drew" from a plastic egg and there were different assignments to move them to a different car (trade seats with someone wearing a ball cap and so forth)
  • Chinese Fire Drill during the last stop, so we could all visit with each other
  • Assigned rooms so that they were with people they didn't know.  Had a small gift bag for each person with water, a Cutie, hand sanitizer and cards with fun, but not too deep "get to know you" questions
  • Climbed to the top of Enchanted Rock together, which is a pretty good fitness challenge for most because of the elevation and the wind was REALLY blowing, and then on the way down, we hiked some great sandy, cactus-filled trails. Enchanted Rock is a part of the Texas state park system.  It covers approximately 640 acres and rises 425 feet above the surrounding terrain to an elevation of 1,825 feet above sea level. 
  • Hit up the ever-famous Luckenbach, Texas on Saturday night before dinner  
  • Trips are a great way for us to challenge ourselves, bond together, push each other out of their comfort zones with positive support (like in class) and develop self-confidence. One of the attendees said it "enhanced the growing friendship that begins when you start coming to class. It's more than just a bond -- it encourages a lasting relationship."
  • We're already planning a trip for next year
