Our goal for this year’s World Juggling Day was (of course) to…
share juggling with as many people as we possibly could!
I was joined by one of our awesome JuggleFit advisors, Jen Slaw. In addition to being an amazing juggler, Jen is the Executive Director of Juggling Life, a charity inspiring disadvantaged youth through juggling. Check out her happiness project, a must-watch video called Happy Huggling.
We hit the streets of NYC handing out free juggling kits, which included a set of juggling scarves with instructions and even a handy little practice card to track progress.
We had fun meeting many tourists in Times Square. Some hesitated to grab juggling kits…”Free?” they said. They were so grateful and you could hear many “thank yous” ringing out in the heart of Times Square. I hope many of them are juggling at home at this very moment!
To end the “NYC Tour,” Jen and I juggled across the Brooklyn Bridge and handed out more juggling kits along the way.
We had a great time sharing juggling and generating many big smiles. It was a very Happy World Juggling Day!
By the way, if you don’t know how to juggle…we want to teach you!
If you’re like me, you’re still feeling a bit heavier than usual after this past weekend’s Thanksgiving festivities. While the turkey, stuffing, amazing casseroles and pies are mouth-watering, this week brings on many a best intention to shed a few pounds. With that in mind, I decided to offer my Shake a Snack app free now through Dec. 12th to help iPhone and iPod touch users shed some of that holiday weight, and get on track for healthy eating around the holidays.
Shake a Snack is a virtual food slot machine full of tasty ingredients. Just shake your iPhone or iPod touch to get the reels spinning, then watch them land on one of over 200 tasty, creative 3-ingredient snack and mini-meal recipes. You can lock in ingredients you have on hand or filter out those you don’t like.
Shake a Snack has received great reviews on FitSugar.com and 148apps, and is currently in the ‘Top Paid’ free apps and ‘What’s Hot’ in the Healthcare & Fitness category on iTunes. It was also selected as ‘App of the Week’ by Dallas-Fort Worth CW station KDAF-TV.t.
Find out more about Shake a Snack here, or go straight to iTunes and download it now, for free until Dec. 12th.
Today, the ShakeASnack app I developed for iPhone and iPod touch was selected as New & Noteworthy under Healthcare & Fitness in the App Store. This is very exciting! I found myself checking the listings constantly to savor the image of my app being displayed. It was at #3 when I first saw it, and of course I had to take a screenshot. It’s the 3rd one from the left on the top screen images, looks like a mini-slot machine:
Shake-A-Snack App New & Noteworthy in App Store
I had so much fun creating this app, and I grew to absolutely love the little food icons. It was surreal to see a sprig of dill in a ‘slot machine’ reel. The idea for the app grew out of my love of juggling and wanting to tie the app into my business, JuggleFit. I teach people to juggle three balls or scarves, so why not share with them combinations of 3 ingredients they can ‘juggle’ or shake to find a healthy snack?
I hope the app will get people on the right track to healthy eating, especially before and after the holidays.
I’d love to hear your 3-ingredient snack ideas. Post them here and I may add them to a future release of ShakeASnack. Everyone needs to know about all of the tasty and healthy snack options available!
It’s here – the new DVD from JuggleFit – Juggle Your Way to Fitness Intermediate Level with Heather Wolf. Get a fit body and brain with this take-anywhere workout! This program is perfect for those who have learned to juggle with scarves from the first DVD, and for those who would rather learn with balls.
Juggling is an exercise that doesn’t feel like exercise. You will be so focused on learning that you will forget you are burning calories and exercising your brain, not to mention getting super-coordinated and improving your balance.
The DVD includes easy, step-by-step instruction on how to juggle with balls from certified trainer Heather Wolf. Heather has taught thousands of people to juggle, and this program includes troubleshooting of the most common obstacles to getting the balls in the air.
Also included are:
A beach warm up and cool down
A meditation segment to help smooth out your juggling and make it automatic
Upper body toner workout
5-minute balance workout
Juggle Your Way to Fitness Intermediate Level also includes information on the best types of balls to use if you do not have JuggleFit balls, which are also available at www.jugglefit.com. There’s even a handy practice tips section at the end!

Had a great time teaching a few beachgoers how to juggle this past weekend on Pensacola Beach. Paco, Tommy and Christian (from left) had never juggled before, and now they are juggling up a storm. Great job guys!
