A few weeks ago, my fiancée received a job offer in Washington, D.C. Seeing as how we live in NYC that meant we had to consider packing up and moving. There really wasn't much discussion and we are moving. THEN a great opportunity to become a sort of fitness ambassador popped into my inbox from FitFluential. So I thought what better way to explore and get acquainted with a new city than to do it through fitness? So FitFluential, here is my application and why I should be your Washington, D.C. ambassador!
- The first thing I did when we started looking up neighborhoods was figure out how far the nearest gym was.
- The second thing I did was see how far away the nearest yoga studio was.
- The third thing I did was figure out the running paths and the race calendar.
On top of everything else, I am a fanatic when it comes to trying new and different exercises and fitness programs, both at the gym and at home. My main goal is to show people that exercise doesn't have to be all about losing weight. For me, it is a stress reliever. I work in what CareerCast.com called the 2nd most stressful job this year...so yeah let's just say exercise and being healthy is a release.
I recently met and fell in love with TRX. It is probably one of the best workouts ever (well, next to Soul Cycle).
See yoga in the middle of my messy tiny NYC apt...
As I mentioned above, running is a big part of my fitness life and I LOVE the running community. Last December my friends and I ran New York Road Runner's Jingle Bell Jog in Prospect. We got really into it.
Below is a lil video to show you just how dedicated I would be (holding a plank for 90 seconds is serious dedication, or at least I think so). So think it over and let me know.
