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!
This week’s Fit Friday is with Jordan Jones from Camp Gladiator! Most M,W,F mornings at 6:30 am you can find me sweating it out with him and a bunch of other people at Audishores. That is Camp Gladiator speak for Auditorium Shores, which is the location that we work out at. I have to tell y’all the view from the Long Center every morning is gorgeous and quite possibly one the best things about my morning! I have been going to Camp Gladiator since about last September, some weeks a little more consistently than others haha. The workouts are always tough, but I’ve met lots of new friends and I actually look forward to going each morning, imagine that! But seriously joining Camp Gladiator has been one of the best things I’ve done the past few months. It makes me feel a little bit better about drinking all that wine and eating all those pies!
Today is the very first Fit Friday and I couldn’t be more excited! I have shared about my morning routines and little things I have been doing to be a little bit more healthy. Today I am sharing about my favorite local barre studio that I have been going to the past six weeks or so. I was a late adopter to the barre trend, but now I am officially addicted. It’s a great switch up from my normal cardio heavy boot camps and running workouts, plus it targets all those tiny little muscles in your arms, legs and booty. My shoulders have never looked so good 🙂 MOD Fitness has two locations in Austin, one on South Lamar (holler!) and one on Burnet. The studios are gorgeous, light-filled places that make it perfect place to start or end your day with a little sweat session!
