Circle for Charades! (Get to Know the Ladies “real names” and FiA lexicon)

We will go Clockwise: 

  1. State your real name & the group will repeat it.
  2. Think of an exercise but don’t say the name, just demonstrate it. (Charades!)
  3. The group will try to remember the FiA Lexicon for that exercise and call it out.  
  4. The group will then ALL call out the “real” name of the person demonstrating it, then call out the FiA Lexicon exercise name.  The person demonstrating will then lead the group in either 30 reps or 30 seconds of that exercise.
  5. After every 3rd person, we will go back to the first of that group of 3 and repeat their name, the name of their exercise, and 10 reps of their exercise.
  6. After everyone has had a chance, go around the circle one more time and repeat the person’s name, and to 15 reps of their exercise

(This worked well with 12 people, you can modify the # of reps to get through a larger group)


Exercises can be from any category: Arms, Legs, Abs, Cardio, Core, Balance; the person leading the exercise gets to decide if R/F= 1 or R=1, L=1 (Or how fast or slow they count)
