I’ve been to a number of holiday events over the past few weeks, but none like the party at ProFormance Fitness on River Road.

In addition to mingling and enjoying a few refreshments (including a rather healthy spread), many of us shared our fitness woes and workout goals. There were a couple impromptu competitions, and at least one of us picked up the weights (ahem).

The group was made up of friends, fellow exercise enthusiasts, a few colleagues, the owners of ProFormance and Buddy, one of the facility’s two in-house dogs.

It’s not often that you walk away from a party feeling ready to run your first mini-marathon, train for a bodybuilding contest  or commit to attending boot camp and Zumba weekly with a group of gal pals, but that’s what happened this night.

Yes, the ProFormance crew collected toys for kids that night, but there are several of us who found much purpose in this party.

Here’s to a healthy end to 2011 and an even healthier beginning to the New Year.

Third Thursday

Don’t forget you’re invited to join The Voice-Tribune for our final Third Thursday After-Work Party of 2011 from 5:30 to 7:30  p.m. on Dec. 15 at the Louisville Marriott Downtown.

In addition to complimentary valet parking and appetizers, cocktails and tunes by DJ Jaybird, Santa Claus will also be on hand to pose for photos and confirm where your name falls on his list.

On The Move

The Voice-Tribune is moving – literally and figuratively.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll set up shop in a brand-new location. At the same time, we’ll also launch a number of brand-new ventures that we think you’ll enjoy in the coming new year.

Our last issue of 2011 will publish on Dec. 22, but we’ll start back up again on Jan. 5.
