What is today? It’s Active Nation Day with Lorna Jane!!
Who Is Lorna Jane?
Lorna Jane Clarkson is the founder of Lorna Jane Active. Her philosophy is Move Nourish Believe. Lorna Jane is incredibly inspiring a a huge role model of mine! She is beautiful, fit, an entrepreneur, and super nice! I had the pleasure of meeting her last month in Santa Monica, CA at her NOURISH book signing. She promotes healthy active living, and designs runway-inspired workout apparel.
What Is Active Nation Day?
Active Nation Day is a movement created in 2012 by Lorna Jane to help women live an authentic and active life. On 28 September 2014, we’ll be hosting events all over the world, where sporty sisters can learn and take part in a specially choreographed fitness routine. In just three years, the Active Nation Day sisterhood has collectively moved over eight million kilometres together – that’s 21 times to the moon! And with this year marking Active Nation Day’s global debut, that number is set to soar (source).
How To Get Involved:

Second, learn the #LJMove:
Super cute, right?! I totally love this video.
To do the #LJMove, follow these steps:
Step 1: Take your right arm vertical and left arm horizontal so it’s super straight, palms flat, fingers pointing straight!
Step 2: Quickly switch arm positions (your left arm is now vertical, right horizontal) THEN add a slight bend to your right elbow & clench your hand into a fist
Try in double time to get the fast paced movement like Christine, Lorna and the girls do in the video!
There were various Active Nation Day events throughout the world, but by the time this posts, most of them will be over. There was an event in Santa Monica, CA, and I really wanted to go, but we just got a new puppy and I couldn’t leave him home alone! Active Nation Day happens every year, so definitely get involved next year if there’s an event in your area. As for this year, there’s still PLENTY of time left to get your #LJMove on! You can also do a workout and post it online using #ActiveNationDay and tagging @lornajaneactive.
