I want to wish a big congratulations to my client and good friend, Laura, who made a beautiful bride this weekend. She looked stunning in her dress, completely rocked the dance floor and even did a handstand at her after party! I could not be more proud.
I would also like to give a big shout out to everyone who attended this month's bootcamp. There were new faces and familiar ones. I was so excited my friend Katie and her boyfriend Terrell were able to make it, and they brought a ton of energy. It was also great to meet Emily, Suzy and Crystal who jumped right in and worked hard. We split up in to Team Unicorn and Team Dinosaur to fly across monkey bars, knock out pullups and knees to elbows, and hold our best planks for what seemed like forever. We did cardio and abs rotations to make sure we left with a sweat and some nice lines down our stomachs. And we took another crack at acroyoga and definitely saw some high-flying birds, ready for spring. Looking forward to the next bootcamp in a couple weeks on April 9th at 2pm. Bring water, a lot of energy and a friend!
Happy March everyone! It certainly does feel like spring, and if you come in to train on a nice day, we're going to start out with a run around the park! As the weather gets nice, start to look for ways of staying active outdoors, whether it's a run or hike or outdoor bootcamp (hint, hint, look out for for those coming soon). On a recent trip to Miami with my longtime client and now close friend Jess, we found tons of ways to burn off any excess "vacation" calories by sweating it up outdoors. Riding the bikes around the waterfront was one way, doing pullups and handstands on South Beach's Muscle Beach was another. Showing off our acrobatics and dance moves on the beach made for an awesome photo shoot and a nice break from lying in the sun.
It was also fun finding ways to eat (and drink) healthfully on vacation. We stayed with my grandma who stocked the house with yogurts, cottage cheese, celery, blueberries and almonds. When we dined out, we ordered ceviches, salads topped with shrimp or salmon and egg white omelettes. When we decided to drink, we made our own vodka seltzers on the beach or asked for rum with muddled fruit and mint, no simple syrup. Still a mojito, just not a more sweet-o :) By the end of the trip we felt like we looked better in our bathing suits than when we started! The best active choice: Dancing til 3 at the club at the W Hotel. Not a bad way to burn calories...
