Now present in 50 cities across North America and Europe, 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. Our 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 kick start their healthy life choices. We meet every Wednesday on Bascom Hill by the Abraham Lincoln statue and every Friday at the State Capitol Steps by the Lady Forward Statue, both at 6:28am. How can you join? Simple…just show up!
