Ok what is #Fitfleet ?
#Fitfleet is a community effort to encourage our fellow nerds to get some exercise. It will revolve around Twitter 1 because it acts as a means of almost instant communication and 2 it provides a nice ease of use.
Numerous studies have shown the health impacts of a sedentary lifestyle on the human body. In Eve we have an older demographic that is growing older as the game goes on where some of these impacts can be seen everyday. I would love to avoid the worst happening to people in our community so people are able to be around for things like Eve Vegas and Fan Fest and any other player meet ups.
Past the physical health effects one can’t ignore the positive effects to things like self confidence and just generally feeling happier and healthier. Personally physical fitness has had a huge contribution to my quality of life and I would love for my fellow nerds to be able to reap these benefits.
“Getting back into exercising can be a very daunting task.” It absolutely can be but like the Beatles said “I get by with a little help from my friends” Post your work out or questions or ping for a little motivation to get out to the gym that day that’s what we’re here for.
I will be having an Army buddy of mine who is a personal trainer contributing to this effort as well so hopefully questions can be answered and some good pointers and maybe a place to start.
Take some gym selfies or pics of what you are doing for exercise have a laugh and maybe motivate some of your space friends to do the same but come and join us on Twitter at #fitfleet
Ok upon request we have a Discord server setup now. Come and join us
