Workout with Coach Spartan Spider
We all get a lot of exercise at a normal convention with walking around to see everything, and exercise can make you feel better. So to make sure everyone gets some exercise, the Spartan Spider has graciously made us a exercise video you can do from home using stuff in your home. The workout is just over 30 minutes (but don’t feel like you have to do it all at once – take breaks if you need to!) Thank you Coach Spartan Spider for running this awesome event!
Stretching Out with Coach Spartan Spider
The Spartan Spider has graciously made us a stretching out video to do after our exercise video or just when you need a good stretch out that you can do from your home. The workout is just under 10 minutes. Thank you Coach Spartan Spider for running this awesome event!

Need to geekify your shirts/clothing or just want to learn how to make simple screen prints yourself? Well grab a t-shirt, freezer paper, an iron, exacto knife, pen, your design idea, and either a spray bottle with bleach OR fabric paints. Here’s a list of materials.
