The healthiest things in the world are often the simplest too. And the fittest things in the world usually require the least effort. All you need is a great idea and a bunch of ardent friends. That’s what we did a few weeks ago. The AnyLinuxWork Team got together for some real adventure with the organizing of two action-packed events.
The first was a super fitness challenge christened as Tandurusti Ki Pariksha (meaning test of fitness/health). This was a trekking expedition organized in town for the entire team. Since, trekking stimulates our body, we decided to give it a try. And well it wasn’t just a trial, as it turned out. It was quite an effort.
Thus began another great culture at ALW- the culture of adventure sports. The trekking expedition took off at 9 am sharp from the bottom of the famous Ralamandal hill in town. In scorching heat, not to mention the humidity, members truly got the taste of ‘heated trekking’ that day. To top that, there were many other fitness-challenge activities that didn’t let them rest even for a while. There were tugs of War, Skipping and Yoga positions. Team members enthusiastically participated in the event that left them feeling fitter than before.
The second was a picnic to a place of historical significance in the state called Mandu. But that definitely involved the best of all physical exercises i.e walking. The rains on ALW’s picnic provided the perfect setting and added to the adventure. We took care of the littlest details to ensure the trip went great just when it became perfect.
It was as if the weather was favouring us. It was rainy and foggy that added to the beauty and splendour of Mandu’s palaces. The next day we were all thrilled to read in the newspapers that it was declared by MP tourism as the best day to visit the place. During the trip, the excitement of our team members reached its peak as we played games, won prizes and dug into snacks.
While returning the only thing that we found ourselves discussing was the plan of the next fitness expedition! As always, ALW team showed its undying commitment to stay fit and stay healthy.
