Holiday Travel Workout – 20 Minute Circuit

 

 

Beachin' in St. Pete!

Beachin’ in St. Pete!

Hello from sunny St. Petersburg Florida!  I’m enjoying an awesome Thanksgiving Holiday vacation with my family – lots of college basketball, fun in the sun, beach time and good meals.  That said, I’m doing my very best to squeeze in at least a 20 minute workout every morning so that I’m not sucking air when I get back to GRIT Fitness next week.

Above is the 20 minute workout I did yesterday on the stairs outside of my hotel.  Remember, you don’t fancy equipment or a gym to get an effective (and fun) workout in.  You just need energy, passion and a positive attitude….like with all things in life 🙂  Below is a peek at my post-workout SnapChat.  (I was clearly feeling the burn)  Enjoy!  xoxo, Brit

BONUS – over the past few months, my teammate Anna and I have been working on the very first GRIT Fitness apparel line.  On Friday night, we finally launched our first product, GRIT Sports Bras!  They say “No Grit No Pearl” around the band because, duh! 🙂

GRIT Sports Bras launched Sept. 30th - yay!

I’m so proud of this accomplishment as an apparel line has always been something I wanted to create but I’ve struggled with the designed and purchasing aspects.  Fortunately, Anna is an expert in those areas so together, we were finally able to bring the idea to life!  AND, we sold over half of our inventory on the 1st day – woo hoo!

Pic from my photo shoot! This pic is hanging in the windows of Neiman Marcus – how cool!

Hey friends!  I have some awesome news to share today.  Last month, I was formally announced as a winner of the Neiman Marcus Faces of Beauty contest!  The Faces of Beauty Contest started 5 years ago as Neiman Marcus began “highlighting women from across the country that have cut through the clutter and are achieving great things.”  One of my clients at GRIT Fitness nominated me for the award without me even knowing and I won!  5 winners were selected out of over 1,000 applications.  I’m so honored, grateful and over-the-moon excited.

The past few weeks I’ve had some once-in-a-lifetime experiences so I wanted to share.  As a winner I received these awesome goodies:

  • Full makeover and photo shoot for a feature in THE BOOK and for my pic to be displayed in the store windows
  • Luxury hotel accommodations at the Joule in Dallas
  • Participation as a panelist in the NM Beauty Symposium
  • A celebration dinner with Neiman Marcus executives (so inspiring to chat with these #girlbosses)
  • Hair styling, makeup application, and a private fitting with a Neiman Marcus stylist
  • $1,500 in cosmetics and fragrances—and the wardrobe from the fitting (Loving my Vince leather jacket and Milly dress!)

Pretty sweet huh?  Here are some pics from the Beauty Symposium that happened 2 weeks ago.

I got to meet the other 4 winners and I was SO inspired by their journeys. From fellow small business owners to writers, each girl had so much passion and perseverance for make positive change in her area of interest.

We even got to have dinner with VP Creative Director and the VP of Beauty for Neiman Marcus.  #girlpowerimg_4406And of course I got the most amazing makeover and styling session!  I felt like pretty woman 🙂

img_0014Last but not least, we all spoke on a panel and shared our stories of how we are “making some noise” in our respective areas.  Of course I gave major props to the #GRITFAM for being the most positive, uplifting women’s fitness community in the world!

I left the Beauty Symposium feeling energized and ready to keep growing GRIT Fitness to impact as many women and possible.  This was truly a “stop and smell the roses” experience for me.  I’m living my dream and I’m so very grateful.  BUT the exciting part is that I know best is still yet to come.  Not only for me, but for you too!   xoxo, Brit
