November Project was started in Boston by elite rowers who challenged themselves to early morning workouts every day in November. They started announcing on social media where they were going to be that day and people showed up in huge crowds to get a work out led by professional athletes. The grassroots movement carried on way past November and "tribe members" (as they call themselves) brought the November Project concept to other cities across the United States.
When Edmonton Oilers captain Andrew Ference moved to Edmonton, he started the first November Project tribe in Canada. When he is in town, he's there to lead the exercises and high five you as you power through the outdoor challenges. Our northern climate adds the extra challenge of low temperatures, but if you power through the workouts in -30C weather, they give you a badge to prove how much of a warrior you truly are.
Anyone can join, just show up! November Project encourages people of all ages, shapes, sizes, and fitness levels to get out of bed and join the tribe.
Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays: 6:00am at various locations (check twitter feed to the right)
