BAREfit Adventure Training Expands with Indiegogo Campaign

Two months ago I started training at BAREfit Adventure Training. It’s an unconventional place, but it’s been a great experience. They provide a welcoming atmosphere no matter what fitness level you’re at, no matter why you need to train. Some folks want to lose weight or start healthier habits. Some folks are training for the firefighter exam or for Ninja Warrior.

BAREfit is expanding their operation and are looking for help with an IndieGoGo Campaign.

The WORKsite: Obstacle Course Training Center

On top of the great training regimen they already provide, they’re going to build out more of their facility to fit more new obstacles. On the second floor they’ve already started setting up the area for a coworking space. It’s particularly exciting for me, because it’s already so close to my house that switching between home, work, and training can be easier and easier.

I think it’s an interesting project, and I know the folks managing it are good people. If you’d really like to dive in to the project, the $1000 level works out to membership for $28 a month, plus a bunch of other perks. Not gonna lie, I considered it, but with other savings goals in mind I decided to back it at a lower level. For even $10, you can help the project happen.

Many thanks if you choose to donate. I’ll do a few burpees for you.

Shelby Park Renovation Expo and Open House

Living in Smoketown and working in Shelby Park, I really appreciate the initiatives taken to make our neighborhoods respected in the Louisville community. There are a lot of great people and ideas here, but people seem to discount both neighborhoods. Hopefully this event will be attended.

The compassionate culture of Shelby Park is particularly evident in the high number of shotgun and camelback houses that have been carefully rehabilitated and put back on the market—a rare occurrence in a city keen on replacing landmark structures with luxury hotels and surface parking lots.


The Park—a co-working space also owned by Access Ventures—will be open for public viewing. Located at 1229 South Shelby Street, this structure is perhaps best recognized by its mural: “Building something bigger than ourselves together.”
