: "I only run if my life is in danger..."

Let's face it, most of fandom is sedentary and we like it like that! Give us a couch with books, comics, video games, movies, TVs, our laptop, various other tech and we can stay there for blissful hours on end. Furthermore, many of us spent a good portion of our childhood being picked on in the athletic realm, so what's a fan to do to keep at least somewhat fit? Ever tried a zombie run or lurch? Horseback riding? Fencing? Martial arts? Belly dancing? LARPing? Hiking? Find out some creative, fandom-friendly ideas to be active.

This is a good idea, and we might want to consider a workshop to show people how to do simple exercises. In fact, I will propose this myself.

If no one else volunteers, I can talk about yoga and walking during lunch. I have almost six decades' experience being sedentary and fighting it!  ;)

Okay! Do you have a maximum quorum for such a class?
