Exercise and Motivation Study at Bentley University

Friday, July 1, 2011

By CB Loeb
Contributor

Do you want to exercise more?

I am doing a research study for graduate school on what motivates people to go to the gym. Can you give me five minutes of your time? I've enclosed a link to a super-brief survey and would very much like your input. Even if you don't think this is the right study for you, I would be most obliged if you would forward this link on to anyone you think might be willing to participate.

The study is comprised of two parts: the survey and a focus group. For those kind folks who would like to join the focus group, you will have the opportunity to sign up as part of the survey. If you are not interested, or do not live in Massachusetts, this is fine. Your completion of the survey would be of great value all on its own.

Gratefully yours,

Agile & Scrum Fundamentals 1-Day Training from FreeStandingAgility.com - Sep
This one-day class is designed to provide you with a rapid foundation in the values, benefits, and practices of Agile and Scrum. After completing this class, you'll have a solid understanding of what "doing Agile" or "adopting Scrum" really means and be ready to move forward with Scrum in your organization. If you already do Scrum and need to spin up more teams or on-board new employees quickly, this is the class for you. Here's a quick list of the topics the class covers: - Comparing traditional approaches and Agile approaches - Conducting iterative planning and development with Scrum, Kanban, and XP - Understanding the roles, events, artifacts, and rules of Scrum - Creating, ordering, and grooming the product backlog - Writing, slicing, and sizing user stories - Working with a Definition of Ready (DoR) and a Definition of Done (DoD) - Planning and tracking releases and sprints - Visualizing progress with taskboards, burndowns, and burnups - Estimating with teams using planning poker and affinity techniques - Understanding team velocity and role metrics - Conducting effective standups, sprint planning, sprint reviews, and retrospectives Why a one-day class?

The goal is to impart the essentials of Agile and Scrum to each participant in the shortest amount of time using an active classroom with simulations and interactive team learning exercises. Who should attend? With rich, useful content, a single day commitment, and a low price, the class is great for both individuals and teams. Individuals quickly gain the knowledge they need to broaden their skills and make themselves more marketable. Who can't spare a day for that. As for teams, the class delivers even more value by making it easy to afford sending team members together and compounding the learning they bring back to their companies. Compare that to sending a single person to a two-day class for $1500 and hoping that they'll be able to share what they learned to others. Still need convincing? Read what some students have said.

SUMMER 2015 Circus Arts 1/2 Day Program for Kids & Teens. Week 2 July 20 - 24.

If you are new to our program, we would like you to contact us by email (melinda@cirquepassion.com) BEFORE you register your child so we can find out a little more about them and make sure that 1) our classes are appropriate/a good fit for them and 2) there is room in the week you are choosing.

Calling all kids aged 7 - teens! Run away with the circus without actually having to leave home!  Moody Street Circus founders Sacha and Melinda Melina Pavlata are hosting / teaching 3 weeks of circus sessions in their Waltham headquarters this year.  Each 1/2 day weekly session costs $350.

Moody Street Circus Class size is always deliberately kept low - to around 10 kids per session, to maximize safety and ensure individual attention for all kids to learn circus tricks safely on all the equipment.  If your child has trouble following directions or listening to teachers in classes, please don't register them for this program!  Safety is paramount in the circus arts and respectfully listening to your teachers is integral to the highest quality experience for all involved.  If you have any questions whatsoever, please contact Melinda Pavlata, Director of Moody Street Circus: 781 893 2491


HALF-DAY CIRCUS ARTS PROGRAM WEEKS

JULY 13 - 17 :: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m :: $350

JULY 20 - 24 :: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. :: $350

JULY 27 - 31 :: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. :: $350

Students in the circus summer program will learn and practice juggling, plate spinning, light assisted tumbling, pyramid formation, rola bola balancing, hula hoop, walking on the rolling globe, low wire tightrope walking, mini trampoline, and regular trampoline.  They will also learn the basics in circus aerial arts including cloud swing, static trapeze, web, lyra (aerial hoop), aerial web, aerial hammock and silks.

  • We start the day with a juggling practice followed by a full-body warm-up with flexibility and strengthening exercises. 
  • We proceed to circus tumbling skills on the tumbling mats, including forward rolls, monkey rolls, wheelbarrows, candlesticks, cartwheels and pyramid formation.
  • Throughout each session we introduce some of Sacha Pavlata's multi-generational circus family clowning skits, including Dead Man, Robin Hood the Coin comedy act, the Newspaper and more. KIds can practice their circus theatrics and comedy.
  • When time permits we will be screening some world-renowned circus acts from our private collection and discussing what makes a great circus performance.
  • We break into small groups for safe, assisted learning on the aerial equipment.  
  • Students learn and practice at their own pace and according to their own level.
  • While taking breaks from aerial work which can fatigue the arms and hands, students practice ground acts of rola bola, rolling globe, low wire, plate spinning, juggling, trampoline.
  • We end the day with skills on the mini-trampoline - straight jumps, tuck jumps, straddle jumps, dive rolls and - if we decide your child is ready - front tucks.
  • We will provide fresh fruit and bagel with cream cheese snacks daily. If your child has any special dietary needs, do let us know and PLEASE PACK HIS OR HER OWN SNACK. Also, let us know if your child has any allergies or other medical issues.

Program days will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 12:30 p.m.  Students can be dropped off at 8:45 a.m.  Campers must be picked up and signed for on time at 12:30 by their parents or care-givers.  Parents are allowed to stay and observe the the program and their kids in action at any time - visit on our comfy futons and watch what your kids are learning from the sidelines.

Attire:  Moody Street Circus is a gum-free, street-shoe free zone.  We ask that even parents who are dropping off and picking up their children remove their shoes before coming into the studio space.  Students will work barefoot, but indoor-use only sneakers and/or acrobatic shoes are suggested for work on unicycle and low wire.  Long hair must be worn pulled back in a pony-tail or in braids. No jewelry or zippers on the equipment.  We go upside-down on equipment and always follow the SAFETY FIRST! Rule, so: Leotards and shorts or leggings for girls, shorts and shirts that can be well-tucked in for boys.  Campers should not be worried about tucking in their shirts when they are upside down, it is very distracting and dangerous when you are learning new tricks to be worried about your clothing. IF YOU DO NOT WEAR A LEOTARD YOU CANNOT PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM.

Waiver forms MUST be completed for each camper or participation in the program will not be allowed.

Call Melinda at 781 893 2491 or email her (melinda [at] cirquepassion [dot] com) with any questions. To secure your child's spot in a session, pay online now.  Once you are registered, we will email you waiver forms to fill out and send in for your child. This signed form is required prior to participation in any physical activity at Moody Street Circus studio.

 

MOODY STREET CIRCUS COUNSELOR - IN - TRAINING PROGRAM:

Weeks 1, 2 and 3

9 a.m. - 3 p.m.

$500 per week

4 slots available per week.


AVAILABLE ONLY TO OUR CURRENT STUDENTS AGED 13 and UP.  Must have prior permission of program directors. WE HAVE A VERY LIMITED NUMBER OF CIT SLOTS, please apply and register early.  If you are 12 and want to be in the CIT program, you and your parents must talk with Melinda in person. 

Parents of kids who are interested in being a Moody Street Circus Counselor in Training must obtain verbal or written permission of program directors before they can register for the CIT summer program.  They must be current students at Moody Street Circus and work well with others.  They must be able to attend the program all day.  CITs must be proficient at many different circus skills and set good examples to those who are less experienced than they are.  They should be generally self-motivated and excited about the prospect of working to improve their skills; they should understand the ideals of proper form, attention to safety, use of breath, and demonstate careful transitions and exit strategies from tricks.  They must be patient and enjoy helping younger kids. 

 

DUTIES OF CITs:  Moody Street Circus CITs will be working with younger kids in the summer program to demonstrate basic skills (e.g. -  how to make wrist hitches in the aerial fabric, Buddha pose and foot knots from the ground, how to practice walking the wire with proper form, how to safely get on and off of the rola bola, etc.  CITs will not be teaching anyone tricks in the air.  CITs participate in all activities of the morning program - warm up, tumbling, pyramids - and then, with guidance from the directors, help Melinda & Sacha demonstrate skills and assist with the younger campers.  CITs help prepare snack and facilitate snack time discussion with the younger kids.
