How can June be half over already?! I know I keep saying this but time is definitely flying with summer officially starting next week. Today’s Friday Five with Cynthia and Courtney we’re talking favorites. While this week has been filled with so much negativity and sadness, I’ll keep things positive and share a few fun fitness related highlights from my week:
Ride with Mar: Last weekend I hosted a blogger ride at Zengo Cycle and it was a blast! This is hands down my favorite indoor cycling studio in the DC area so if you’re local or ever get a chance to visit the city – check this place out. Kendra Scott provided an awesome necklace we gave away and our instructor Alli brought it! Everyone left sweaty and happy. Me? a little too happy 🙂
Sweaty fitness: a couple weeks ago I checked out a new boutique fitness studio in the area, SweatBox DC. The class I took was intense but pretty amazing. The cardio portion is done on a color zone bike and they recommend taking an orientation session which familiarizes you with the equipment and after a test to measure your power wattage, ends in a personalized number. I was excited to take the test and SweatBox was kind enough to gift me a couple class credits so looking forward to seeing how this changes my workout effort! Back to Pump: Now that personal training is done it’s back to Body Pump for me! In the time I’ve been personal training I never made it to any Body Pump classes. I finally went back a couple weeks ago to find they switched up instructors and for the class I take on Tuesday, she’s phenomenal! Her energy and level of assist with the class is great which has made me excited to get back to class again. Sadly I’ve been nursing a headache for the last couple of days so I only made it to one class this week but I’m already looking forward to next week!
Health Coaching at Georgetown: Most of you know I earned my certificate in health coaching from Georgetown University last fall. After some months of discussion I took part in a planning meeting this week and will be part of a team who will bring health coaching services to constituents of the university. It’s still in the early stages but it’s very exciting to be a part of building something from the ground up! Lord Stanley:

This isn’t my fitness fun but as a big sports fan and supporter of my hometown teams it was super exciting to watch the Penguins win the Stanley Cup this week. I’m not the biggest hockey fan in the world, football is more my sport, BUT you gotta show some love to the ‘burgh!! Now if the Steelers can just win the Super Bowl this year, yeah that’d be great… 😉
Share something positive from your week! Any fun fitness on the horizon? Favorite sports team?
