When Tony and I decided to put the word out about Fit Marriage and solicit interest in being part of a Test Group to try out our first couple-friendly program, we were enthusiastic. We hoped to receive applications from 10 individuals/couples.
Instead, we received 58 excellent applications!
We were truly blown away by the response, and we are so encouraged to push forward with our new project to help each and every person out there who wants to make fitness an integral part of their marriage and family life. Thank you for your votes of confidence in us and our program.
Unfortunately, we could not include all 58 applicants in the Test Group. Our intention is to work alongside the Test Group members and interact with you on a regular basis. That just wouldn’t be possible (in a high-quality way) with such a large number of participants. So, we had to select those that would be joining us at this time.
We originally planned on (hoped for) 10 participants. However, we just couldn’t narrow it down that far, so we settled on a total of 16 members. Most of these folks represent a couple, so more than 30 individuals will be joining us on this initial 12-week journey to improved fitness.
We will be contacting all of the applicants via email today to inform them of their status. However, several people forgot to include an email address and others may miss the message, so I wanted to post here to spread the word to everyone.
Here are the Test Group members and their age. As you can see, we have a diverse group of enthusiastic participants!
Thank you once again to all of you who have shown your support for Fit Marriage via your applications, your sign-ups to the newsletter, your comments and your sharing in social media.
We are excited to share our new website in the next few weeks as well as launch our podcast where we’ll be discussing a wide range of issues related to fitness, nutrition and happy marriages. We have several experts already lined up to join us for interviews, and we’ll be looking for energetic couples to feature as well.
