Happy National Dance Day!  I’m not a huge workout person, but I LOVE dance workouts.  I do a hip hop class and have recently started doing CIZE.  Both are high-energy, pulse-racing workouts that leave you feeling great and like you didn’t really workout because it was so fun.

So celebrate today with a dance of your own!

Weekend Workout

I’m a girl who loves variety and trying lots of new things, but when it comes to my workout I’ve got a pretty good routine going.  I start my weekend with a 75 minute high-cardio hip-hop fusion dance class, followed by strength training.  I feel so energized and ready to conquer the world!

And even though I’m getting my sweat on, I like to look cute.  I get a lot of my workout fashion from Fabletics, but I also mix & match my favorites from other brands.  And as you can tell, I’m not afraid of color — keep it fun!


  • These Nike Free running shoes are the best!  They’re super lightweight, and the faceted sole moves with your body.  I have them in two colors – including the orange!
  • A heart rate monitor from Polar ensures I’m in my zone and getting the most of my workout.
  • Staying hydrated is a must, and this Kor water vessel does it in style!

Ellie Sale!

If you’re not familiar with Ellie fitness, now is the perfect time to shop their site for luxury workout wear.   Right now all their sale items are an additional 30% off, making the decision of what to buy easy — all of it!  I just snagged several pairs of capris and matching tops for less than I’d pay for a nice dinner out.

Each month Ellie launches a new collection that’s unique and fashion forward.  And the quality is superb — everything I’ve purchased has held up well and definitely turns heads at the gym!


Post Superbowl Workout

Now that the big game has come and gone, it’s time to get serious again about working out.  And working off all the Superbowl party food.  I really enjoy hip-hop dance workouts — they’re high energy, fun, and I burn over 600 calories in an hour.  That’s a lot of chicken wings!

As important as the workout, though, is looking super cute while I’m doing it.  Enter super cute fitness wear from Fabletics!  I’ve been a member of their site for several months and keep ordering more because the quality is fantastic and the designs are a bit different than what I find in retail stores.  Fabletics is a subscription site, so you do have to join, but you can also skip a month anytime you’re not feeling the love of a new outfit.  The camo fabric of this outfit is right on-trend and makes me feel like I’m fighting off the pounds!
