Nerd in Ontario
Saorsa posted a topic in Rebellion Meet UpsJust putting this out there, just in case there's anyone else in the area. I'm an American in Ontario. I'm newish to the country, so I don't know everything there is to do, but that makes it an adventure, right? I'm up for a walking group, or just online accountability, or book club, or hiking...whatever!

Toronto Meet-up - Sunday January 31st
Ballad posted a topic in Rebellion Meet UpsHi Torontonians, We're holding a NerdFitness meet-up in Toronto on Sunday January 31st - and it will be awesome. The Place: Nathan Phillips Square (closest subway is Queen Station) The Time: 2pm The Activity: Skating & hot chocolate If you're in the area, you're invited! Our plan is to meet by the "T" in the "TORONTO" sign at 2pm. Friends & loved ones are welcome. Please either PM me or comment on this topic if you'll be joining us. Cheers, Meaghan PS. For posterity, here's a link to our initial planning thread.
Hey team! I'm Andrew, I'm 22, and I used to be pretty fit. A few years ago I moved out of my parents' house, had a break down, and have gained a steady ten or so pounds a year since then. I weighed myself recently and the scale put me at 188.8 pounds. In that moment I very, very suddenly found myself motivated to get back on track. My mom has been a yo-yo dieter for years, so I did a bunch of them with her (Atkins was the worst, good god) but never had any real results. I've been following NF's posts for ages and had always meant to do one of the challenges, but never really got around to it. Now though, for the first time in almost five years, I have access to a gym that I like (at my college) and better yet, it's always empty in the mornings. To fitness! Ultimately I want to clock in between 140 and 150, and be mostly functional muscle. My class of choice would be Monk or Assassin. I joined this forum for accountability. I would really love to make some friends in the downtown Toronto area for some group workouts. It's so hard to get motivated alone.
Toronto Rebels FTW!!!

Tough Mudder - Toronto, ON, Canada
echidna posted a topic in Rebellion Meet UpsHello! There is a tough mudder coming up (well, eventually) just outside Toronto (Mount St. Louis Moonstone, 24 Mount St. Louis Road, Coldwater, Ontario L0K 1E0) on August 16th & 17th 2014! Is anyone heading out to it? It's my first one and I'm determined to complete it! "This yearâ€™s new Tough Mudder Toronto venue is epic. Be sure to check out lodging options here â€“ weâ€™ve got a bunch of rooming plans at Mudder special rates. Book a room now so you, your teammates and your spectators can all stay just steps away from the action." " Travel TimeToronto: 1 hour, 35 minutes Buffalo, NY: 2 hours, 45 minutes Ottawa: 5 hours, 15 minutes" http://toughmudder.com/events/toronto-2014/
Fall 2014 - Tough Mudder Canada
Beck Fallowhide posted a topic in Rebellion Meet UpsHey everyone. Beck here, Canadian newbie bound and determined to be a rebel extraordinaire, and hopefully bring a few people along for the ride. Here's how: There's this crazy obstacle course, and I do mean CRAZY. "10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie" -Tough Mudder website [ http://toughmudder.com/about/ ] Crazy is good though, right? Or at least a whole lot of fun. It has accountability: NO REFUNDS. NO GIVING AWAY YOUR TICKET. When you've payed for your ticket, that's that. You don't show, you've basically piled up some money and set it on fire. Also the earlier you pay, the cheaper it is. The price range generally is somewhere in between $80-$200, so paying earlier is better for sure. Rewards! A free beer at the end of the course! How cool is that?! Plus beer you can buy, food, partying, ect. A high fitness level is not required, but is definitely recommended. The lowest amount of training recommended is 3 days a week/40 minutes a day. That is where I will start, and will work my way up the ladder. Another thing suggested but not required is a team! And you, my fellow nerdites, are the very first people I thought of. My reasons for wanting to do something like this is because I used to do things like this. I know there's a golden rule of not looking back here at nerdfitness, but that's exactly where I want to get back to fitness-wise. Back to the days where I had 4-pack abs and could climb all the things without thinking twice or breaking a sweat. It was awesome. And I had fun with it by doing stuff like this. So all in all, I'd like to build a team for the Fall 2014 Tough Mudder course in Toronto Ontario CANADA, but it would also be ridiculously cool to hear about other NF fighters/rebels/whathaveyou toughing this course out around the world. Let me know what you think!
