Marathon #2: Rock ‘n Roll San Diego


SD-Race-Day-3-of-14

On Saturday, I started the day off with this fun event in Hermosa Beach, called FitFest. It’s basically a way for the city of Hermosa Beach to promote a healthy lifestyle. You get a team of 4 together and go by about 10 different booths/gyms to do a little 5-10 minute workout. We went from cross train routines, to yoga, to rope slams, to monkey bars to tire flips and it was awesome! My gym, Afterburn Fitness had a booth too, so naturally my team that consisted of Afterburnies loved that little workout!


Anyway, after this event in the morning I took a quick shower and headed out to San Diego where I would pick up my race packet. Continue reading

My main motivation to stay active: My Fitbit Charge HR

Let’s start at the beginning. I’ve always been the kind of person that gets super excited about new things, but after doing them for a while I get sick of them. Especially in sports. Every since I started my ‘healthy’ journey, I’ve been having ups and downs. Last year when I was training for my first half marathon, I really got into running, but after the race I took a break. I was planning on taking a break for 2 weeks, but 2 weeks turned into 2 months and before I knew it, the fit body I worked so hard for turned back into the body I had before I started running.

In June last year I got a Fitbit Zip and I fell in love the moment I got it. I’ve always liked technology and keeping lists and stats of what I do, so thanks to this little device that you just put in your pocket and the (free) Fitbit app I could keep track of my activity.  Continue reading

Healthy kickstart


Make Fit Happen 1

I’ve started my last semester of college 3 weeks ago and I’m loving my classes. I’m only taking 2 classes and then I’ll have my Personal Trainer certificate, which is very exciting. One of the classes mostly focuses on how to coach and how to give one-on-one training. The other class is a workout class, which is great to help me get in shape before I take a job as a Personal Trainer.  Continue reading

Yoga with a view


Yoga (1 of 12)

About a month ago, my friend Sae, who I got to know through the Herbalife community, invited me to go down to the beach to do some yoga. I thought it was worth a try, since I had been wanting to get my first real yoga experience for a while now. And let’s be honest… What better setting to have a relaxing yoga session than right on the beach?! Continue reading

In 5 weeks I’m running the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in San Francisco and I couldn’t be more excited about it! Ever since I heart about this race I’ve been wanting to actually run it. The last 2 editions I would sit behind my phone on race days and check out the hashtags of the race so I could see how everything looked and which price the winners would get.  Continue reading
