Hey Friends! It’s been a while since I’ve posted about my fav workout clothes. After opening my fitness studio, I haven’t blogged as much about Fitness Fashion. But don’t you worry, I still diligently acquiring my fair share of activewear! For the past year I’ve really been really into Onzie, a funky fitness line of clothing based in Southern California. I especially love their bold colors and crazy prints – they scream energy and fun! Above are a few of my looks from recent weeks!
Better yet, today Onzie came out with new video called “Yoga A-Z.” The video features 26 sweet yoga poses (one for each letter of the alphabet) each demonstrated by a fab chica rockin’ her Onzie activewear. Watching the video is like a more interactive way to shop online (hehe). If you’re in the market for some cool new gear (or a just want a fun distraction from work) CLICK HERE check out the video!
I hope your day is as beautiful as you! xoxo, Brit
Have I mentioned that I LOVE Spring?! (almost as much as I love Summer) Check out the beautiful tulips I got for my studio – they instantly put me in a good mood. I also love rockin’ fun sports bras when teaching my classes. Recently I went on a mission to find fitness gear and heathy treats to help me “Spring Into Shape!” Here are my 5 healthy finds to get you in tip top shape this Spring!
Honest Fizz zero calorie beverage (perfect mixer with vodka)
GIVEAWAY: My friends from Honest Tea hooked me up with some goodies – yay! Post a comment below sharing 1 healthy find you’ve discovered this Spring. I’ll pick 2 winners this Friday to each win a case of Honest Fizz – ENJOY! xoxo, Brit
Wow, I can hardly believe that 2014 is coming to an end. I hope you celebrated a relaxing, fun-filled Christmas with those you love. I did! Here’s a fun photo of me and my immediately family after dinner on Christmas Eve (eve).
My family and I are actually celebrating Christmas over 4 days. Our festivities began with family dinner on the day before Christmas Eve and then carried on to the next day during which my parents hosted their annual Christmas Eve party. We had over 60 friends and family at our house for food, drinks, dancing and singing carols. It was really fun (and really loud). Nonetheless, there’s nothing like being with family for the holidays.
On Christmas Day we drove to Tyler, TX to visit my dad’s side of the family and ate another huge Christmas Dinner. I still have a food baby from all of the pies, ham and sweet potato casserole I’ve inhaled over the past 3 days. Finally, today we are ending our 4 days of Christmas celebrations with a “family bonding” day at my new fitness studio, GRIT Fitness. I’ve persuaded my mom, dad, brother and sister to give me 1 day of free labor to help touch-up paint, clean and get the changing room set up. #winning
Okay so let me get back on topic: Fitness Fashion Friday! Hopefully, you’ve enjoyed this new weekly ritual I started this year. I plan to carry it forward into 2015. But before I bust out my cool new Winter activewear in the 2015 editions of Fitness Fashion Friday, I want to share a quick recap of my 4 favorites outfits from 2014…
Here’s links to details of my outfits above (from left to right):
Happy Monday morning to you! I hope you had a good weekend. I had a really busy weekend myself (more to come on that later this afternoon). I’m actually feeling kinda tired this morning, so I’m planning to rest and recover today.
On Saturday morning I taught my usual 8AM spin class at BEYOND Pedaling. I was super pumped because I got to rock my new Chic Bra Top from Onzie. Not only does it have a funky neon pattern, but the back has a sexy strappy design – oh hey! I paired with with my neon Living One Luv Headband and wore my Target C9 sports bra underneath for extra support (I’m a little on the busty side).
In addition to my fab new workout clothes, my playlist also pumped me up for an energetic class. It’s crazy how much time I spend each week making up my playlist – like ~4 hours per class for realz. A solid playlist is crucial for a good class. That said, I figured some of you may be fitness instructors as well, so I’m making a personal commitment to start sharing my playlists as much as possible. Here’s the 45-minute cycling playlist we “tapped back” to during my last cycling class…
After the ride, my class was super sweaty and had big smiles on their faces – 2 outcomes that always make me feel good as a fitness instructor. They liked the mix of Top 40, Hip Hop and Old school on this playlist – yay!
What’s on your workout playlist? I’m always looking for new songs. PLEASE post a comment and let me know what you jam to. Share the love 🙂 I’ll catch up with you later this afternoon. Until then, HAPPY MONDAY! xoxo, Brit

Happy Fitness Fashion Friday! So technically, these are “cheetah” print on my leggings, but “Cheetah + lucy” doesn’t have the same ring as “Leopard + lucy” so we’re gonna go with the latter. I’ve officially busted out my long sleeve activewear now that the cold weather is upon us (tear).
I’m headed to NYC this weekend. Two of my close friends from business school, Matt & Lily-Hayes, are getting married! I plan to pack this outfit as my “travel wear” for my flight back to Dallas next Monday.
While in NYC, I’m checking out a couple of new fitness studios that have sparked my interest: AKT In Motion (a new dance cardio club that seems really cool) and 305 Fitness (founded by my friend Sadie & just opened a new flagship studio in the West Village). I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures and write a full review to share here on the blog. Welp, I guess that’s all for now. Happy Friday friends!

Happy Friday and Happy Halloween! I hope you enjoyed my Spooky Shoulder Sculpting workout. As usual, I’m excited to present my activewear outfit of the week on Fitness Fashion Friday! While I’m not rocking my black and orange today, I am sporting vibrant workout capris from Onzie along with a sheer black tank from Athleta. I wore this outfit to my teach my spin class this morning and now I’m rushing to the airport. This weekend is my best friend, Leslie’s, wedding. I have to give a speech at the reception, which I’m a little nervous about. If you have any advice for giving a good maid of honor speech please share! The wedding is in Nashville, TN and I’m so excited! I’ve never been to Nashville, so I’m really looking forward to my trip.
Enjoy your Halloween weekend and I’ll catch up with you on Monday! Lots of luv, Brit
Happy Fitness Fashion Friday! We are officially at week 3 – are guys liking this new tradition? Let me know! (Here’s links to my outfits from week 1 and week 2 in case you missed them.)Today, I wanna show off my new, super sexy activewear from Onzie. Now let me preface this by saying that I NEVER show off my tummy when I’m working out so this was a bold move on my part. This week I stepped out of my “gritty” comfort zone and rocked this bustier and matching leggings to yoga class. The top isn’t super supportive so I couldn’t wear it for a Turbo Kick or cycling workout. I added my Vinyasa scarf from Lululemon for a little coverage before and after class. BTW, this scarf is amazing! You can wear it like 10 different ways, even as a vest (as I am doing below). All in all, I felt strong and sexy in this outfit. Better yet, on the Onzie website they put together cute outfits for styling ideas – you can check them here!
And now it’s giveaway time! First off, the winner of last week’s GRIT tank top giveaway is Chelle! I was very inspired by her personal definition of “grit.” This is what “grit” means to Chelle: “GRIT is that rod of steel that runs through the backbone of every woman out there kicking butt in the world, corporate, fitness or otherwise. She may greet you with a gentle smile or look perfectly polished and pulled together even during the toughest times but the thing that keeps her going when she wants to stay in bed kicking and screaming and crying about the inevitable trials in her life is her inner GRIT.” Congrats Chelle! Your tank top is on it’s way to you!
In fact, I was SO inspired but all of your comments, that I’m actually combining them into a cute quote printable. I’ll post it so you can each have a copy. The energy that I feel from hearing the voices of so many powerful, positive, gritty women is absolutely amazing – thanks again for sharing you guys!
Today I’m hosting ANOTHER giveaway thanks to Onzie activewear! In case you can’t tell, I’m an Onzie junkie. Did you see my outfit from their Spring collection? The wonderful folks at Onzie hooked me up with this adorable, one-size fits all, knot-back tank top from their Fall collection. I’m feeling kind of random (and nosy) today, so I just wanna know what your weekend plans are? Football game, dinner with friends, family time, working out? To win this tank, just post a comment sharing your weekend agenda. I’ll announce the winner next Tuesday, September 23rd. Happy Friday! luv, Brit

Happy Friday gang! So today I’m officially starting a new GRIT by Brit Tradition: Fitness Fashion Friday! Every Friday, I’ll post pics of my favorite activewear outfit from the week. This week I wanna show off the outfit I wore yesterday to teach PiYo at Fossil Corporate HQ in Dallas. All of the class members are super trendy, well-dressed Fossil employees so I had to bring my “A-game” when picking my outfit. I think this was the perfect combo of FUN and FIERCE. What do you think?
Yay for cute workout clothes! I just caught wind of this awesome yoga clothing company, Onzie! Based in California, Onzie reached out to me a few weeks ago to review some of their yoga apparel. The minute I saw their bright colors and modern designs, I was like “gimme gimme gimme!” As icing on the cake, the clothes are really high quality. I was expecting some “Forever 21-level” workout clothes, but the apparel is extremely well made and can endure a sweaty power yoga session. Buying workout clothes can get quite expensive, my friend told me to visit PromoCodeWatch to use some coupons next time I shop. She told me they save her tonnes of money so I’m going to try it soon! I love my pieces so much, I’m actually hosting a giveaway for a $75 Onzie gift card! To participate in the contest, just post a comment below and tell me your workout plans for the weekend and describe your favorite workout outfit. I’ll pick a winner on Sunday evening (4/13/14). Enjoy! xoxo, Brit
