NATIONAL GET FUNKY DAY HISTORY
Funkytown Fitness founded National Get Funky day to help people break free of their comfort zones and let loose for a fun and exciting day throughout the country. When people get Funky they get happy, they have fun, and the world becomes a more positive place. This day evolved from the incredible way the community happily came together to help complete strangers in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.
The Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed National Get Funky Day to be observed annually beginning in 2017.
Q. What does the word “funky” actually mean?
A. Funky has developed several different meanings since the late 16th century. Funky often refers to a strong odor. Cheese can have a funky smell (and that can be good or bad). Funky also evolved as a term used in the world of music, especially jazz, to show approval. It later spread to a distinct style of music (funk) and the associated style, attitude, or sound.
Q. What is the difference between being in a groove and being in a rut?
A. While both a groove and a rut describe similar things such as a worn depression or track, they mean opposite things. If you’re in a groove, you’re moving right along, enjoying your favorite routines, and generally loving life. If you’re in a rut, you’re kind of stuck. The routines you’ve developed are not as exciting as they once were.
