Our July EduNinja™ Free Community Workout was a Blast! 

A huge thanks to Derek Flail and Ryan Poletti for spreading the word and helping to organize this event. It was an awesome turnout of people of all ages coming together for this high intensity interval training workout, meeting new friends, and staying connected. Thanks to everyone who joined us and told others so they could join us next time. My hope is to meet up again Thanksgiving break. We might need to get creative with the weather. : )

The EduNinja Mindset 11 Habits For Building a Stronger Mind and Body at The Student Book Store at Penn State (330 E College Ave, State College) 

A big shout out to Mark at The Student Bookstore for supporting local authors. I’m grateful for all the future ninjas I met there. We held up sidewalk traffic a few times as students and I did a few push-ups together. I also had an opportunity to meet local author and former teacher Denise L. Kaminsky. Check out her books.
They make great gifts as well.

Better Together CA California Teachers Summit 

What an honor to be a small part of this amazing statewide event!  The summit featured a live video feed from keynote speaker Sir Ken Robinson for 10,000 plus teachers across the state of California at the Cal State schools. A huge thanks to the team at Cal State Northridge for organizing this and allowing me to give an Ed Talk at this location. It was an incredible day of collaboration and learning. 

This year’s theme was: It’s Personal Meeting the Needs of EVERY Student by Building Relationships & Fostering 'Grit Aren't You Glad You Didn't Quit?’

Get Out There and Keep Inspiring Others With Your Quest For Personal Greatness

What can we do to inspire health and wellness among friends, family, or work environment?  We’re taking the first step here by surrounding ourselves with this supportive and caring community.  As teachers, parents, individuals we are all role models. No matter our age or exercise experience our job is to care for ourselves so we’re at our very best for our families, friends, and students. 

Together we can make a positive change. I’ll be continuing to host free workouts, online challenges and contests, book signings and meet and greets, and speaking to sports teams, teachers, and students. 

I can’t wait to see and share what you are doing so we can inspire others. Please be sure to reach out if you’d like me to speak to your team, school, organization. Stay connected and keep doing what you do best. Thanks for inspiring health and wellness for our communities.
