Fit Fridays is back just in time for summer y’all! If you’re feeling the need to move a little bit more, stretch a little bit deeper and keep the good vibes flowin’, I’ll be posting some of my favorite spots to get your sweat on! This month I’m bringing you a favorite class of mine, the hammock class from DEFINE Body & Mind. I mean after seeing the photos I couldn’t help but want to try it!
Good morning! We’ve made it through another week and a really long hot month! That means it’s time for July’s Fit Friday! This time I am introducing you to my lovely and wonderful friend Amanda McArthur, and yes, she is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. She epitomizes the delicate balance of fitness, health and style. Seriously, I find myself thinking somedays when I am getting ready in the morning, “would Amanda wear this?” She is always in tune with the newest fitness classes and is someone that can make taking a walk or jog in the Texas summer heat as enjoyable as a snocone. Ok maybe thats a stretch, but you know what I mean!
This month I tapped Amanda, who also happens to work for Outdoor Voices an active lifestyle brand, on her tips for keeping the balance + her favorite foodie spots in town!
You guys! I am so, so excited about today’s Fit Friday! One of my good friends Lauren Pou let me interview her today about her mad running skills. She is truly a champ, the girl killed it at the Boston Marathon last year and she is someone who truly inspires me to be more fit every day. Lauren and I met through mutual friends a few years ago and immediately hit it off. She loves to cook and at our group potluck I would always be like “Ohhhh that looks delicious, who brought that?!” and more often then not it would be Lauren’s! During a road trip last year I talked her ear off about when is the best time to work out and what should I eat to get the most out of it and on and on the questions went. Lauren is not only a wealth of knowledge when it comes that stuff but she is also extremely patient and just the kindest, sweetest person in such a refreshingly genuine way. Literally, cannot say enough great things about this lady. Plus, she spends her days working as a coach at a pre-diabetes clinic, where she helps those who are at-risk for diabetes learn about healthy eating and fitness. Like I said, she’s a real gem. Now I am going to kick it over to Lauren to get the scoop about running!
