Long and Lean Class = Success

A BIG THANKS  to all who came out on Sunday and rocked it all class. It was an amazing turnout and the energy was off the charts. I could not have done this without the incredible support of my friends and family, and my rock star photographer aka husband. This was our first huge event we planned and we pulled it off. I am so inspired to do something like this again. Thank you, thank you!

Sometimes it's more fun working out with a buddy

It's a rare opportunity when my fiance lets me "Work him out". I usually hear him say "no, I have soccer tomorrow"  or "no, I went to the gym yesterday" or just plain old "not a chance". So on the VERY FEW AND RARE occasions that he says "YES" I get so excited I could pee myself!

Yesterday was one of those "YES" days. So I set up two mats, took out some light weights for arms and back. and grabbed a kickball for abs. Most of the exercises I put him through I modified for myself. We did a lot of plank and push up variations. I made sure to throw in some back work to even us out. The workout was under 25 minutes and we were both sweaty! It was so much fun.. for me at least!

I find that working out with someone can be motivating and just more fun. I once worked out with a friend who is also a trainer. We set out two mats and I put her through an exercise and she put me through one. We did this for about 30 minutes back and fourth. We both learned some new moves and the workout flew by! Try it and let me know how it goes. Instead of a dinner date, it can be a workout date! YEAH?! OR workout while dinner is cooking! HOLLA.

Here is an old workout video we did together.  I plan to do another video demonstrating what we did yesterday, because it was amazing. I am sore from it today!

National Dance Day

Yesterday was National Dance Day and to celebrate I taught a 45 minute dance/ZUMBA class to some awesome and energetic dancers and then bustled over to  Lululemon Pudential Center to dance in their window! This is not the first time I have done this, and hope it won't be the last. The different reactions I get from walker-byers are priceless! You have people smiling, waving, and cheering as they walk by. You have people who stand and watch and those who quickly hustle by and not even make eye contact. My favorite are the little boys and girls who watch in amazement and then start dancing with me!

The whole crew at Lululemon was so supportive and excited to dance. I even had Laurin, one of the assistant managers, jump on the "stage" and boogie with me! Thank you Saturday morning dance crew girls and Lululemon Atheltica for sharing National Dance Day with me!
