Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

For over a year now...

Which may not seem long, but for me it’s about the longest i’ve ever stuck to a physical activity. I started to help with a preexisting back injury, and I got hooked. It is just so much fun! My studio focuses on fitness, not sexy, which made me much more comfortable about actually attending classes. My biggest suggestion would be to just try it. Seriously, the worst that can happen is that you don’t like it. But the best, you get hooked, and it is a n AMAZING workout :)


So, I’ve been taking clases for 6 months now. 6 months! I spent the first 3 months (2 terms) in beginners, and I’ve spent the last 3 months (2 terms) doing both a bridging and a beginners class. I started originally after waking up one morning too many in pain because of my back injury and lack of core strenght, and decided that I would start. And, I haven’t looked back. I’ve had one period of bad back pain (from mowing the lawn), rather than the monthly occurence it used to be. And, it is the most fun i’ve had workign out, ever. Because I forget that i’m working out until the end of the class. If you’re considering it – jsut do it. book a term, or a taster class, and do it.


I want to:
