Around Edmond

By Sherri Hultner Spring Forward Around Edmond March is here and this year it is packed with so many great things going on. Before we get to events, we’d like to congratulate the Edmond North Balto and Santa Fe DWDW fundraising efforts that mutually benefitted A New Leash on Life, while Edmond North raised $296,720 and the charity they chose to raise money for was the March of Dimes. Santa Fe raised an astounding $251,671 for the Warriors for Freedom Foundation, and kudos to the Chicago financial institution for helping the Wolves with a single donation of $100,000, this is an amazing thing to see. We’ll be keeping our eye out for the Memorial Bulldogs reveal and will share it with all of you on Facebook! Speaking of social networks, we’re pretty excited to finally have our Instagram account connected to our Facebook fanpage. This should really prove to be a lot of fun throughout the spring and summer as we cover events around the area, and if you aren’t following, you can find us at @EdmondActive. Keep your eye out to Hafer Park mid March to late March for the most amazing natural Tulip display! It’s fun to watch every year because it just continues to get bigger! Have you been to Mitch Park lately?! The Aquatics Center that is funded by EPS and the YMCA is at its halfway mark and it is a sight to behold. The benefits this center will provide North Edmond is pretty great, and I am so proud to live in a city that understands this. It will be a 40,000 sq. ft. center that will contain a competitive pool for the specific use of the high school swim teams, as well as provide a place for special needs students and aquatics safety classes. It will also include a leisure pool and a separate

04

children’s area. The rest of the 500,000 sq. foot space will house a basketball court, class space and child care area. On the YMCA side there will be a smaller pool, a vortex water feature and a fun children’s area including slides, buckets and water toys. This investment by the City, EPS and the YMCA is one of the reasons Edmond is so terrific, and we can’t wait to show you this amazing facility when it opens! Are you ready for the first day of spring and Easter? This is one of those unusual months of March where daylight savings (3/10), the first day of Spring (3/20) and Easter (3/31) all occur in one month. In Pinterest style, I created an Edmond based tablescape in My Home this month, to hopefully give you inspiration for the holidays and everything can be found at local retailers in Edmond! In Metro Flavor, we feature Millie’s Table Catering’s Easter Dinner, which can be ordered for 3-6 or 6-8 people, and Four Graces Pinot from Edmond Wine Shop which perfectly compliments this meal. In Edmond Style, we are featuring affordable spring trends from area stores in Edmond and we are bringing back our product reviews section from 2011 with some interesting finds! In My Fitness, we sat down and talked with Melissa Cox, owner of The Shape Project Bootcamp about why she really loves what she does. And don’t miss the Spring Event Preview! Every year for 4 years, we’ve had readers ask us where the Easter Egg hunts are being held around the city. The Keller Williams Kivlehen House at 525 N Jackson Ave in Downtown Edmond always has one so keep your eye out for a date & time. We’ll share any other Easter Egg Hunts and other festivities as they are announced at Facebook.com/EdmondActive! Have an amazing month enjoying the spring & extra daylight, and thanks for reading! See you Around Edmond!

Conversation with Melissa Cox Owner & Founder of The Shape Project Bootcamps By By Sherri Sherri Hultner Hultner

What is The Shape Project? The Shape Project is a group of health professionals passionate about motivating others to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Based in Oklahoma City, we offer a variety of Boot Camp times and locations that work best with your schedule. This program is an excellent way to jump start your fitness goals while providing the motivation and camaraderie you may need to help achieve your personal goals. While Boot Camps is our main service we provide, we also offer Fitness and Lifestyle Retreats throughout the year for those who desire a tougher and more challenging experience. How did The Shape Project get started? The Shape Project was founded in 2010 while I working as a P.E. teacher for Edmond schools. It began as a free workout for educators once the school day was over in an attempt to not only influence my students, but my peers. During that time, my passion for motivating and educating women on the importance of strength training and adopting a healthier lifestyle cultivated and grew. The following summer, I decided to take this new found love and turn it into a business to reach more people. It began with one location and just a few clients and has now grown into multiple locations serving over 400 clients last year alone. What do you do as an adjunct professor at UCO? At UCO, I teach as an Adjunct Instructor within the Kinesiology Department. The main courses I teach each semester are Healthy Life Skills, Bench Aerobics, and Success Central. I love having the opportunity to help others achieve their academic goals in addition to their fitness and lifestyle goals. How does your position at UCO work into The Shape Project? My position at UCO helps me remain fervent in research, especially in the fields of Health and Exercise Sciences. This continued awareness and knowledge of what’s happening in my field assists me in always providing a quality program with The Shape Project. The Shape Project is growing rapidly with 11 bootcamps, so the natural question is do you have plans to start a brick and mortar gym anytime in the future? We don’t see that in our 2013 plans, but it is something that is definitely on our horizon. Our team is so well rounded in all types of certifications and specialties that we want to provide different types of classes in the future. Do you have youth bootcamps and if not, do you have

06

plans to offer them in the future? We currently do not have youth boot camps, but we are planning on having one this summer. Along with my passion to help women discover their strengths, I also hold a strong passion towards childhood obesity and getting kids moving! Do you have a nutritionist for your clients to help with diet control? We were pleased to add Registered Dietician, Katrina Castle, to our team this year. With this great addition to our team, we are now offering Nutrition Workshops, Grocery Store Tours, and private consultations for our campers. What are all of the services you offer to your bootcampers? In addition to our popular Boot Camps, we also offer weekend-long Fitness and Lifestyle Retreats in the Arbuckle Mountains. Our Fitness Retreats are a unique fitness getaway all about challenging yourself, discovering your full potential, and having fun! We provide a structured program of nutrition education, recreational activities, variety of exercises, and relaxation. What are some of the things you love the most about running The Shape Project Bootcamps? A: There are so many things I love about what I do. I am blessed to be a part of change in people’s lives which spill over into their world around them. Since The Shape Project began in 2010, I have been witness to some campers not being able to run a mile to running their first half or full marathon this past year. It’s an amazing feeling to see how lives, and even families, have been changed. We are more than just a gym. We are a community and it shows in how our campers support each other. What advice would you give someone who felt too intimidated to begin a fitness regimen? My advice to someone who was intimidated to begin any type of fitness regimen is to just take that first step because it is the hardest. We become fearful of the unknown, but putting yourself into a program breaks that barrier of fear or nervousness. You will never regret working out, but you will always regret letting another day pass before making changes needed in your life. The most common email I get before a session of Boot Camp begins is that a new camper is nervous, scared, but also excited. You are not alone in those feelings and if it were easy, then everyone would be doing it.

What is it about kids? They really get it, don’t they... with their pinky promises and soft hearts. They live in the moment, ask questions (every 5 seconds) and believe for the best... they jump in water puddles along the way. Must. Be. Nice. Lately, I’m learning a lot about being PRESENT. Ok, not just lately. It’s been more than a minute, I’m just a slow learner. But, I’m getting it. I want to get it. If we could remove some layers of adulthood deception, maybe... Like the lie that a great paying job and a lot of income will somehow bring us the contentment we’ve always wanted. Kids are all kinds of happy and they don’t have money. Kids are broke! Or, how about that joke about a degree being the greatest thing in life... how many people don’t even work in the field they spent their college years slaving for? Oh, and this one: Social status. HA! Take it from a recovering people pleaser, that’s a real quick slope to losing yourself. I don’t know about you, but the older I get, the less I give a rat’s what others think about me. Ahhhh, freedom. Families, fairy tales, and vacations are all great examples of high expectations that turn to devastation when we are confronted with reality. People sometimes just aren’t going to be there, “the one” might end up being nothing more than a sad Taylor Swift song, and even vacations can leave us desperate for a break! LIFE HAPPENS. So what? What do we do with all the things we work for, look forward to, and dream of that turn into big fat disappointments? We become like the kids we once were. We get resilient. We get present. What if we really realize that all we have is NOW. This is it. We don’t have yesterday or 5 minutes ago and we don’t have tomorrow. We have this very moment in time - you, me, this place, these sounds, these smells. This moment. What is it about anticipation, curiosity and the hunger for tomorrow that possesses us? Isn’t today enough? I need to be enough, because we’re not promised anything else. What if we’re just happy to be alive? One... moment... at a time. Forget about “dancing like nobody’s watching” - let’s just dance because, hey, there’s music and we have legs and dancing is fun! There’s no way to love like you’ve never been hurt - the hurt is good - it teaches us not to do the stupid stuff again! But to live like it’s heaven on earth? Yeah... I think that’s good stuff. Right here, right now... if we lived like that - what would that look like? I picture it like a bunch of resilient, faith filled, squealing children playing in the rain with wide and bright smiles, not focused on tomorrow, just living in the present. Life isn’t on the way, it’s now. Don’t give up on pinky promises. And definitely, do not pass up the puddles along the way. Those aren’t for avoiding, they’re for splashing.


Edmond Style: Spring Faves

Tom’s are such a staple in Edmond during the spring and summer, and we love the new spring styles, along with great old faves! You can find Tom’s at Lucca at 15th & Bryant or at Toms.com!.

Edmond Style: New Products Here are some new products that I tested to see if they work as claimed, from the drugstore and from our annual Birchbox subscription. We had so much fun with this feature in 2011, we’re bringing it back! ElizabethW Lip Balm, found at I’m Just Sayin Gifts, is lightweight, longlasting and smells so great, this is a definite winner. Proximity Detangler, from Birchbox, did not detangle even remotely. Jouer Mattifying Moisture Tint was the biggest surprise. It wasn’t too thin but super lightweight & silky feeling, not greasy and has amazing coverage with a great matte finish. $38 at Nordstrom’s or Birchbox.com. LOVED it. Olay Total Effects 7 in One was not so great as it was greasy and too thin.

Model Co. Lipgloss was just average, felt a little too sticky and had a more sheer color. Its plus was the cool mirror on the tube. Found at Birchbox.com. And last, Cover Girl Clump Crusher promoted by Pink claiming not to leave any clumps, at all. Pink was being straight up in her claims, and after 2 weeks, it’s surprisingly not leaving any clumps. Great thickness factor, too. 6.99 at your local drugstore.

ElizabethW makes the best bath fizzes, in my opinion, in the country. Found at I’m Just Sayin Gifts, 8.50 for 2, and in some of the best scents ever!

You can visit any boutique in Edmond to find this style and they range from 50 to 198, but we found these dusty pink, white and ice blue ankle pants at Kohl’s North Edmond for under 25, and they are just as stylish as the higher priced versions.

This facility has an Olympic size swimming pool, a fitness area, an indoor elevated running track and a large separate leisure pool with a children’s slide that seems to magically exit the building through a wall then return to the inside for an exciting ride available to YMCA members. Atlas General Contractors expects the facility to open May/June 2013.

Field Trip

Gettin’ Rad In E-Town Mat Hoffman

Story & Photos By Chris Hultner It’s undeniable that one of Edmond’s most famous athletes is BMX Vert Legend, Mat Hoffman. Mat got into vert riding when the sport was in its infancy, he stayed with it through its heyday and he single-handedly rescued it from the abyss prior to the X Games revival. He was the first rider to pull a 900 and a backflip and he set the bar for the highest air on a BMX bike. He has too many signature tricks to name and his celebrity has brought him to the big screen as well as the small. His friends call him the Condor and he inspired a generation of riders to push the limits on a half pipe. He has the respect of everyone in all aspects of

extreme sports. Today, Mat is long removed from the spotlight of competition, but he’s still heavily involved in the sport through his bike company, Hoffman Bikes, as well as producing BMX shows at theme parks around the country. But when he’s at home he spends his time in the backyard riding his half pipe and getting his stoke on. For Mat, his true passion is still pushing the limits of his bike and body on a vert ramp, just like he did all those years ago when he learned to ride in his backyard.

Edmond Extreme

Gettin’ Rad In E-Town Downhill Longboarding

associated with longboarding that harkens back to the genesis of

skateboarding itself. In the beginning skateboarding was a DIY activity. A lot of skaters actually made their own boards to mimic

surfboards so they could go sidewalk surfing. Today the longboards are a tad more advanced and the truck technology has come a long way. The boards of today are faster and more stable on steep descents then they were 2 decades ago. Downhill

Longboarding

has

really been catching fire in the Edmond area over the last couple

years. Much like the Razor scooter,

or the Rip Stick caught on here, we’re starting to see more and more kids getting into downhill longboarding. It’s definitely a rush to test yourself and your board HISTORY There’s

a

certain

nostalgia

WHERE TO BUY

There are a lot of different types of longboards, for different types

of skating--some for bombing hills, some for carving around campus

and some for free-riding. The best place in the area to find out more about the boards and to purchase them is Core Extreme Sports on May, just south of Heffner Blvd.

WHERE CAN YOU LONGBOARD?

Even though the downhill longboarding community is growing and

everyone involved wants to see it get bigger, most of the riders like

to keep their spots a secret so they don’t attract too much attention. Suffice it to say, there are plenty of rideable hills in the neighborhoods

throughout

Edmond,

you

just

have to go out and find them for yourself.

DANGER FACTOR

As with all extreme sports, there

is danger involved with downhill longboarding. We strongly urge

the use of all safety equipment

available, including a helmet, knee pads, elbow pads and slide gloves. Dress for the crash, not the ride.

25


Edmond Extreme

Gettin’ Rad In E-Town Wakeboarding

Thanks to our proximity to lakes, wakeboarding is a very popular sport here in Edmond. But for those days that you don’t have a tow boat available, we are lucky to have a cable park nearby. The Wake Zone Cable Park, located on 10th Street east of downtown, is one of the few cable parks in the region. Wake Zone is a second home to many shredders in the Edmond Area. The park consists of ramps, rails and a fun box and it’s big enough for some substantial runs. If you’ve always wanted to give wake boarding a try you can

26


Edmond Extreme

rent all the necessary gear at Wake Zone and they can give you lessons too. There’s no better way to get your adrenalin fix and cool off at the same time. Especially during the hottest days of summer.

27


Edmond Extreme

Gettin’ Rad In E-Town

Skateboarding Edmond is home to one of the

best, city run, skate parks in the

state. Built in 2002, the Mathis Brothers Skate Park, at Mitch Park, has everything you need

to shred the gnar. It’s got 17,000

square feet of bowls, a fun box, rails, mini’s, a quarter pipe, a pyramid and lots of hips. If that sound

like another language to you, it doesn’t to your kids.

For years skaters got a bad rap

for skating in public and at schools

or wherever they could find a

bank, a curb or a handrail, be-

cause that’s all they could find to shred. But then, in the ‘90s, some

28


Edmond Extreme

forward thinking towns, lob-

bied by the skaters themselves, moved for change and got them

to build skateparks. No longer were kids running amuck on the

streets, irritating business owners

and the police. City built and run skate parks changed everything in skateboarding.

Being one of the only con-

crete skateparks in Oklahoma (Mat Hoffman Skatepark in OKC would be another--and, yes, Mat

Hoffman actually rides there on

occasion) the Mathis Brothers Skate Park can be found on national skatepark directories all over the interwebs.
