Fun Partner Workout: 20 Minute Buddy Boot Camp

IMG_2680

Me and Maria (follower her at marlizrowe.com) demonstrating partner planks w/ alternating high fives!

Hello friends!  As usual, I hope this post finds you joyous and well!  I’m gearing up for a wonderful week ahead… writing out my “To Do” list, making playlists for my classes and drafting our weekly newsletter.  Lately I’ve incorporated several parter exercises into my classes at GRIT Fitness, and I’ve been amazed by the positive response!  My classes love the personal interaction and the energy is through the roof.  This gave me the idea to create a “Buddy Boot Camp” partner workout that my clients (and you) can do on your own.  See below!

Brit's

No equipment is required to complete the workout, all you need is a friend!  Here’s a brief explanation of the 5 exercises in the circuit:

  1. Plank Hold w/ alt. High Fives (Core + Upper Body) – Hold a straight arm plank position facing your partner.  While keeping your core tight and hips square to the ground, give each other a “high 5” with alternating hands.
  2. Squat Jump w/ Turn (Cardio + Legs) – Facing your partner, squat low and when you jump up, turn and face away from him/her.  Then squat jump and turn and face your partner again.  Keep repeating continuously for 1 min.
  3. Iso Squat Hold & Hi Knee Run In Place (Cardio + Legs) – One person holds a deep iso squat with both arms extended out in from of them, parallel to the floor.  During this time, the other partner does a hi knee run in place and tries make his/her knees to touch their parter’s hands.  Switch positions at the half way point (30 seconds in)
  4. Plank & Agility Footwork (Cardio) – One parter holds a forearm plank (hover position) while the other partner has to hop over his/her legs. Switch positions at the half way point (30 seconds in).
  5. Straight Leg Throw Downs (Core) – One partner lies down on her back with legs straight and holds onto the ankles/calves of her partner who is standing up behind her shoulders.  The lying down partner raises both legs up off the ground so that the standing partner can catch them and try to throw them down.  The challenge is for the lying down partner to not let her legs touch the floor while the stand partner throws them down.

After this workout, you and your friend should be covered in SWEAT & SMILES!  I’m big believer that workouts are more fun and effective with done with a partner – two are better than one 🙂

Spring Shape Up Circuit: Running & Strength Interval Workout

Hello friends!  Spring has officially sprung here in Dallas, TX.  We enjoyed a gorgeous weekend of sunshine and 75 degree weather.  Some of my friends even enjoyed time by the pool.  I’m so glad that Winter is over and cannot wait to spend more time outside, especially partaking in outdoor workouts.  This week I plan to hit up the Katy Trail and knock out this running and strength training circuit.  I made the perfect 40 minute playlist to energize my sweat session – you should too!

Dallas Autumn Ball – So Fancy this Fall

Getting ready! Dress & necklace from BCBG

Hey Friends!  Happy Sunday.   I usually don’t post on Sundays, but I had so much fun this weekend I wanted to share a few photos.  My friends and I attended the Dallas Autumn Ball which is a charity gala for young adults.  Long story short, we had a blast.  We started off the night with a group dinner at Dragonfly in Hotel Zaza.  I’m usually really skeptical of hotel restaurants, but surprising our dinner was super yummy AND we got a complimentary bottle of sparking Rose’ – oh hey!

After dinner, we made our way to the grand ball room of the party!  There was a lovely step & repeat to pose in front – of course I seized the opportunity.

Posing on the red carpet as we made our entrance – oh so glamorous!

When we got inside, we immediately started bustin’ a move because the Emerald City Band was playing live music all night long.  The open bar was icing on the cake, but I didn’t party too hard.  I had to teach spin at 8am the next morning – priorities!

Wouldn’t be a legit night of fun without a duck lips photo

Altogether we had an wonderful night.  Great food, friends and fun all in formal wear – what more can a girl ask for?  Hope you have a wonderful week ahead.  I’ll catch you in the morning!  xoxo, Brit
