Recently on FB I saw a picture with each letter of the alphabet and an assigned exercise for each letter. The photo said that a group fitness instructor used it with his classes and had them spell out their full first, middle, and last names. They would run to the end of the gym, see what the assigned exercise was for each letter, and then complete all of the exercises until they had spelled their entire name.
I modified his exercise list a bit and then wrote down 40 words/phrases that were either a truth about God, a truth about ourselves, or a phrase that we use to stay motivated. I had words such as:
I used a total of 40 words and wrote them each on a folded sheet of paper that I placed at one end of the gym.
The ladies divided themselves into pairs or teams and then sent one runner down to the end of the gym to grab a word. They picked one then ran it back down to their group where they looked at their exercise alphabet to determine which exercises to do. Each team/group had their own copy.
We had SO Much fun!
Hope that you can use this on your own or even with your classes. Here is the document that I used to print their handouts, as well as a list with the 40 words/phrases that I used. spelling workout
After class I got a call from my husband that my oldest came down with the stomach bug while I was gone so I had to cancel my second class. Looking forward to trying this with them soon!
Love y’all. Happy Friday!
