There’s the hidden message in the name, did you notice?
“Lean” has a double meaning… It certainly insinuates we have a goal of being fit and trim, but “lean” also means to lean on each other, help your teammates, and celebrate successes together. We’re not only bringing together a team of 10, but the whole community. We’ll be working out with other teams and learning from each other. We’ll keep each other accountable, provide support, and be there to lean on when a teammate needs an ear to listen, or shoulder to lean on.
