Fat & Active 2.0 | The Seminar

  • Holiday Inn Dallas-Fort Worth Airport S 14320 Centre Station Drive Fort Worth, TX, 76155 United States (map)

Fat & Active // Yes You Can Be Both

The Shapely Team is headed to Dallas for a power hour of all things plus size and positive! The goal isn’t to try to make you skinny or to try to turn you into a body builder. It’s to inspire you to get up, get out, and move something! We would like everyone to embrace the notion that you can be active at any size.  With a number of things plaguing the Plus-Size community such as mobility issues, a little bit of activity can go a long way which is why we’ve teamed up with some of the most active people we know and bring this seminar to you.  Learn some hacks to help you live a more active lifestyle at any weight. Tap into your sense of adventure, try that new thing you’ve always wanted to do but was too scared to try, get some tips and tricks from Iya and her awesome guests. Come with your questions, comments, ideas, and even share a story or two. All are welcome! Hosted by Iya & Brooks. What makes this seminar the 2.0 version is that we will work on a short routine at the end! How awesome is that? Participation in the routine is voluntary… is also fun!

Although open to everyone, this event is geared toward Plus-Size men and women. If you have someone plus-size in your life that you are looking to encourage/inspire this is the perfect event for you as well. We provide a comfortable environment with people like us who understand us. We will have people leading the hour long seminar that understand, are supportive, and are sensitive to your workout needs & concerns.  This is a no judgement zone designed to encourage, inspire, and motivate.  Join Us!

“I hate to get gift bags with nothing but ads and coupons,” said Sarah Gardner, public relations and marketing coordinator at Texas Discovery Gardens. We will be giving out gift bags to all the attendees. If you have a product that you think falls in line with the concept of this seminar that is not just a flyer or an ad please contact us to have your products placed in our bags. Gift bags offer the perfect opportunity to showcase you products and remind attendees how much you support the concept. Check out the video below from one of our prior workshops.
