St Louis, MO (PressExposure) March 03, 2011 -- Ann Morrow, Owner of Ellipse Fitness in Oakville, requested that St. Louis County officially recognize a new holiday to promote proper nutrition, physical activity, wellness, and the importance of goal setting to our community. Last week, St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley proclaimed March 4th to be March Forth: New Beginnings Day. Ann has celebrated this event with her family for the past seven years after reading an article in Family Fun Magazine.
The holiday was created by Deborah Shouse, a prominent writer, speaker and creativity coach. Ann has used this date as a starting point for various accomplishments including the completion of two marathons, six half marathons, multiple 5k charity events, and to start her own fitness and weight loss business, Ellipse Fitness, located on 6047 Telegraph Road, St. Louis, MO.
Ann, along with Ellipse Fitness, hopes to create more visibility for the holiday and sees it as an opportunity for individuals, families, teams, and corporations to enhance their knowledge of fitness and nutrition and commit to a healthier lifestyle. According to Morrow:
"March FORTH is the only day of the year that is a command. It is a day that invites us to move forward in life. Set a new goal, revisit a New Year's resolution, spend more time with family and friends, and celebrate your progress. It can also be a day of reflection. Some people chose to set this day aside to examine past endeavors, successes or failures, and search for a lesson behind it."
