Trying New Things (EnVie Fitness Pre-Opening Classes)

This morning I stepped out of my comfort zone and took a fitness class. A friend of mine, Liberty, is opening a new gym in Encinitas soon (they are shooting for early November as long as construction and everything goes smoothly).

Learn about the studio HERE!

While they are working on the location itself, they are spreading the word by offering pre-opening FREE fitness classes throughout the week - one on Monday mornings and one on Wednesday evenings. The classes on Mondays are at 10:15am at the Lorna Jane store in Del Mar and the ones on Wednesdays are at 6pm at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas (but this week it will actually be on Thursday).

Today was Liberty's first class she has taught in about 9 months, but let's be honest, you couldn't tell ONE BIT! She kicked my booty! Like legit, I think my glutes (and everything else) will be sore tomorrow! The class was about 55 minutes long and intense the whole time (although there were plenty of opportunities to modify any of the moves depending on your level of fitness, body's ability, etc).

Wanted to get a pre-workout picture like this, but it was raining, so
you'll just have to deal with the post-workout look :)

I always think that I will take pictures during classes (and by always I mean the 3 times I've ever taken classes before), but then I am too focused on actually getting a good workout in (and not falling on my face) that I never even get out my phone. We pulled out weights for a bit, got down on the mat for core work, climbed mountains and did a bazillion and a half squats! Suffice it to say, we got our sweat on while combining strength, cardio and stretching.

Thanks to Lorna Jane for letting us workout in their studio!


Don't let the low numbers fool you, we still got a
KILLER workout!

Never, Never, NEVER Give Up!

If I am off on Wednesday morning's (today I don't have to work until 6pm, so I have all morning/ afternoon to get my fitness in), this is totally a class I will make the drive for. And working out on the beach before sunset?! You better believe I am going to try and make those Wednesday evenings as well. And if you are in the area, you should stop by too!

The lovely Liberty!

I'm not sure how many folks they were expecting for this first workout, but
I thought it was a great turnout (especially in the SoCal rain!).

PS If anyone is interested in becoming a member at Liberty's new gym - EnVie Fitness Encinitas - make sure to check out their website (I can also get you in contact with Liberty directly, just let me know and I can make it happen!).

Do you belong to a gym?
