Fit & Fashion Friday: HIIT Workout + Lorna Jane Gear

My Athleta gift card winner was chosen! Is it you?!

Happy Halloween and hooray for Friday! And Friday means I’m off to another workout at Sweat. I’ve really been loving these workouts because it not only gives me a chance to mix it up from my usual gym scene, but I also find that I push myself harder being in the group setting. I mean, I can’t let people think I don’t know what I’m doing, right? 😉

I was this close to hitting up Sweat the other day but the plans were cancelled. However, once I have my mind set on something, it’s really hard to change it so I decided to do a modified version of my first Sweat HIIT workout in my own gym. AND I decided to share it with all of you because it can’t hurt to have an extra workout at your disposal with all of the candy around, am I right?! I love the mix of cardio, abs, and strength work. By the time you catch your breath, you’re moving fast again!

Fitness Friday: 10 Minute Ab Burner Circuit

About a week before the move, I got some very exciting news that I’ve been meaning to share with you. Obviously, I got a bit caught up in my packing, moving, holidays, etc., but now that things are settling down, I figured it’s the perfect time to announce—I’m now a Sweat Pink Ambassador!

Sweat Pink Ambassador

Ok, so maybe it’s something that you’ve already noticed on the right side of the blog, but that doesn’t mean I’m any less excited to officially announce it! If you’re not familiar with the community, you should get yourself acquainted. This group is all about building a healthy community and part of my job as an ambassador is to share my healthy lifestyle and encourage others to join me. That said, I wanted to share my favorite go-to ab circuit. It’s a really burner and I hope you try it out!
