Excited for the party to start! I couldn’t believe there was a line all the way down the street – ahhh!
Happy Monday morning friends! I’m cloud 9 after celebrating 6 super successful months of business! This past weekend, my GRIT Fitness team and I hosted a GLOWGA (glow-in-the-dark yoga) party on the 33rd floor of the W Dallas Hotel. It was simply amazing! Hundreds and hundreds of family, friends and studio members came out to “flow in the dark” with us. Here are a few photos… You can view the full album on the GRIT Fitness Facebook page.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a super sweat 20 minute Tabata workout that I did with my boyfriend last week. Get ready to WERK friends!
Me and a few members of my GRIT Fitness Dream Team!

Hola friends! I hope your week is going well. This week is a bit of a bear as I’m still getting back in the swing of things after being in Los Angeles for the IDEA World Blog Fest & Fitness Convention. This was my 2nd time attending as last year I went for the 1st time and had an absolute blast. Check out my blog post reflecting on my most memorable moments the 2014 IDEA World.
This year’s conference was equally energizing and inspiring and better yet, 2 of my best friends & fellow GRIT Fitness instructors (Annabel and Kemi) came with me! We enjoyed 3 days of workshops, workouts and fitness classes in LA. My adorable aunt (who’s 75 years old and super amazing looking – OMG see photo below) hosted us at her fab house. We had an awesome trip perfectly balanced with relaxation and invigoration. Here are a few pics…

I love attending these conferences because I pick up little nuggets wisdom from fellow fitness entrepreneurs. Here are the Top 5 takeaways that impacted me most…
