Outdoor Fitness Campaign Adds Power! to Lawn & Garden
Top Fitness Trainer Teams with Husqvarna to Help Consumers Create Fun Workouts
While They Work Outside
For Tina Vindum, lawn and garden jobs are more than just chores and outdoor fitness is more than just
push-ups on a bench. No one is better equipped to teach people about the power of outdoor exercise.
For the past 15 years, Tina, a former pro skier, world champion mountain biker and faculty member of
both the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and the Aerobics and Fitness Association of American
(AFAA), has been busy leading the nation's only accredited outdoor exercise training program - a series
of 10- to 12-hour workshops in which she teaches professional trainers everything there is to know about
outdoor exercise: How to use trees, curbs, parking meters and other "found" props for strength and
flexibility training; how to incorporate your local surroundings, including hills and other features, into
your workout design; how to maintain mental focus on every type of terrain; motivational tips; how to
deal with adverse weather conditions; and much more. In fact, if you've ever had a really good outdoor
workout class with a professional trainer, chances are good that he or she has taken Vindum's course.
Tina was recently named the Bay Area’s Top Trainer for 2007 by the San Francisco Chronicle and she is
host of the “Outdoor Fitness” show on Sirius Satellite Radio. The weekly program promotes healthy
lifestyles with expert interviews (recent guests have included Joe Montana and Jack LaLanne), listener
interaction and Tina’s personal commentary. The show airs across the USA and Canada on the Lime Radio
Network and Sirius Satellite Radio (Channel 114), with approximately 6 million subscribers.
An American Council on Exercise (ACE) Faculty member, Tina delivers frequent lectures at international
fitness conferences about the scientifically proven benefits of outdoor fitness techniques.
In 2007, Tina partnered with Husqvarna, the world’s largest maker of chain saws, lawn mowers, trimmers
and blowers to launch the Outdoor Power! Lawn and Garden Fitness Campaign. The program combines
Husqvarna’s industry leading products with Tina’s deep experience in fitness and exercise to offer
consumers unique tips for turning their lawn and garden work into workouts.
Tina uses the latest research on the body-mind connection and the proven benefits outdoor exposure has
on us to help those who perform lawn & garden chores to learn simple tips, reduce stress and get the
most out of their time outdoors.
