Tina Vindum Outdoor Fitness Campaign Adds Power! to Lawn & Garden Chores 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.
