I have always been a fan of outdoor workouts. Last year, after visiting with Osayi, I launched an outdoor fitness series called The Academy, he even loved the name! Osayi’s outdoor series in Philadelphia has won him several fitness awards and it was an honor to get tips from him. The Academy was a great complement to my Community • Health • Fitness movement here in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Since then, I have decided to focus mostly on my real estate business and bring attention to our community partners through Fit In the City.
What inspires me is that others have continued the Outdoor Workout Movement. Our city, with its amazing parks and Cincinnatian’s love to be in the environment, lends itself well to these outdoor workout series. Let us keep this movement going. Go out and support these fitness groups and enjoy taking in all the city has to provide.
I’ve compiled some of my recommendations here in one place for you! Let me know if you want a buddy to try them out and I will go with you!!
