#Gearup: Good Vibes Crops!

Hitting the retail shelves are our brand new #goodvibes crops. These high-performance spandex from American Apparel’s new athletic wear collection are the perfect addition to your workout wardrobe…if we do say so ourselves!

The stretchy fit allows you to move and the high waist keeps everything covered (even while booty tappin’)! The waist band even has a pocket for your keys and cards, allowing you the freedom to leave your bag or wallet at home. Plus, they are the perfect length for indoor cycling – not too long, not too short.

These crops are so comfy, you may never want to take them off. That’s okay, feel free to spread those #goodvibes everywhere you go!

Fall into Fitness

The air is getting crisp, the pumpkin spice lattes are being sipped, and fall has arrived here in Boston! With every new season, we have a new opportunity to achieve different fitness goals. This month, we want to focus on looking better in that favorite pair of jeans we’ve kept tucked away in a drawer all summer. We asked instructor and trainer, Katie B, for a quick lower body routine we could do in addition to our classes to help tone our tushies!

KTB-Fall-Lowerbod copyAfter a quick warm-up, grab a medium to heavy kettle bell and get going with this lower body routine.

THE WORKOUT: 

Three rounds of…

  • 30 sec sumo squats
  • 30 sec alternating curtsy lunges
  • 60 sec kettlebell swings
  • 30 sec weighted wall-sit
  • 30 sec walking wall-sit

Make sure to rest for 20-30 sec between each round.
