I dragged myself out of bed this sunday morning and went straight to Indiranagar to participate in a first of its kind, Emoji Run. Seeing around 250 Bangaloreans, aged between 6 and 68, come together at the break of dawn to run was a pleasant surprise.
The run organized by VOLT ENERGY CLUB combined fitness and fun with the addition of emoji stickers that were handed out to all participants.
The morning started with a warm up session followed by Zumba for another 15 minutes. Zumba a high impact dance-based workout woke up all those sleepy heads and it looked like we were having a dance party.
It was good to see so many children and senior citizens take part in the run. The emoji stickers were a visual treat for the passer-by’s, and added a fun element to the run for the participants. I have always shyed away from running marathons as I felt intimidated every time I thought of giving it a try. Yet this 3K emoji run was doable and everyone could complete it. We had volunteers & an ambulance watching over us throughout the event. Needless to say, it was a huge accomplishment for me.
As we assembled in front of Volt after the completion of the run, we were up for quick stretches. Later we had some sandwiches and a certificate of appreciation were handed out to each participant.
That was not it. Then came the big announcement, the Launch of Crossfit training at Volt Energy Club. This programme incorporates a high intensity work out that strings together the best functional movements of weightlifting, gymnastics, running and more. Volt Energy Club is striving to bring variety of formats of fitness as they possibly can to Bangaloreans. Founder of Volt Energy Club, Shruti Lad says, “Our aim is to encourage fitness in the lives of people today. There is a huge shift in the awareness of being fit now in India, and activities like marathons allow us to challenge and test our mettle.”
