I brainstormed and did a lot of research this week to try and nail down what message I’d like to portray and what I wanted to focus on. I realized that I had too many topics or subparts that would be difficult to portray effectively. I also thought about the angle or overall message, and if it was going to be a positive or negative one.
I did a KNHL (L to come) chart to work through a lot of ideas.
I am going to focus on the ‘fitness’ or exercise portion of health and how fads or any type of exercise can be beneficial. I want to show that anything that gets you excited or motivated to work out your body can be great!
ASK / LEARN
I spent a lot of time thinking of what information I’d like to gather from older woman who have lived through all these fitness changes. I brainstormed various factors that they may have considered or that might have motivated them. I also wanted to know what they do now, and what lasted in their lives.
I created a survey through SurveyMonkey and will start sending it out this week.
In terms of style, I want to highlight real life women who have lived through these fads and have more experience. I will highlight the following:
- Data collected from them
I want this presentation to feel motivating and personal. I’ve put together an style board with ideas of how to present quotes / sayings and where I might include them.
- Printed onto workout clothes
- Posted around to motivate and photographed
- Printed onto posters
- Handwritten on chalkboard / clipboards
LOCATION / DATE / AUDIENCE
I started thinking about places I could present that would be relevant and topical. I decided to use the gym at church. There are a few times and groups of women I am going to reach out to:
- Volleyball club (they meet every Saturday morning in the building)
- Relief Society Christmas dinner (Early December, I need to know if they’ll be in there or in another room)
- Fitness club (they meet once or twice a month in the evenings in the gym)
I have some ideas about how to present my data, or at least pieces I want to start collecting and incorporate.
- Fitness t-shirts on hangers with quotes from real women
- Stations going through the decades and highlight actual equipment used (ex: ab rollator, hula hoop, tiny trampoline, etc)
- Play video clips of exercises / aerobics / news stories about health / etc.
- Show case clothes worn with equipment and colors that match that decade / style
