Good morning ladies,
The 1st Tuesday night of the month is the Your Turn Board/Advisory/Chime in if you want Meeting in Kalamazoo. Anyone and everyone are welcome to attend and if you do you never know what will come out of them. Because we are a new board we had some discussions regarding a better understanding of what Your Turn is; I figured if they wanted to discuss it to better understand it then maybe YOU need to have a better understanding as well.
The goal of your turn is to support YOU get to YOUR health and wellness goal. Your goal can be very individualized but we hope with enough women involved the goal you have will be a similar goal to another woman or women involved so you can then be connected and work toward the achievement of that goal together. We facilitate this by introductions on FB, at our Your Turn Gatherings, conversations or comments on our blog and at our Couch 2 5K and Couch 2 Kitchen 10 week programs. We post workouts that other women from Your Turn are doing in the hopes that you can find something on there that you want to do and you can meet up with them to get your sweat on with a (possibly new) friend. Your Turn is for the young, old, black, white, Hispanic, poor, rich, mother, single….if you are a woman, you are in. That’s it, that’s our only criteria; you need to have a vagina to participate in our activities, however, it doesn’t mean that men can’t be inspired by us, some of our supporters are men. We are the dot connector.
Your Turn is the facilitator but we cannot and do not intend to be the only factor for you achieving your health and wellness goal. YOU have to be the one committed. You have to make the time to meet us, conversate with us; comment, post, like, basically all that social media, web page, and email chain stuff. We hold NO judgments if you come in and get out then come back or stay out. We intend to be what you need when you need it, if that’s forever great, if it’s only to help get you started, great, if it’s to help connect you then your niche goes off and does it on your own great. WE LOVE IT ALL. We want to tell you that you are worthy of your own personal health.
In the meeting last night, because we have some wonderful minds all in this symphony of Your Turn the desire to be SPECTACULAR is here. We have such GREAT AMAZING FUN GLORIOUS ideas about how to get you engaged, how to make money to keep Your Turn going, how to connect you in new ways. This month, October of 2012, Your Turn began. We began with an idea that sprouted desire that grew to 400 individuals being on our email chain, blog, and FB. We are like that train that started at the bottom of the hill, eager to climb, willing to put in the chugga chugga chugga; we are about to crest that hill and I PROMISE YOU want to be on this train! Our train, the Your Turn Train, is bound for greatness because of all the great women involved; if you’re not on, get on, you’ll be so glad you did!!!
