Live from Reebok FitHub Studio City! {NOW OPEN}

Last week, I was invited to the GRAND OPENING of the new Reebok FitHub in Studio City. This intimate event, which included a healthy breakfast and a refreshing morning yoga class, was hosted by the founder of Strala Yoga, Tara Stiles (LOVE her) and the lovely Haylie Duff!

To prepare me for this event, Reebok sent me some sweet yoga gear to try out too!

Here I am before the event in my full gear:

I LOVED these pants and tank top so much. I got several compliments on the outfit. The pants were comfortable and didn’t squeeze me too tight around the waist (a.k.a no muffin top!) and the top was breathable and flattering. Two thumbs up.

The real kicker (pun intended) was the SHOES. These SkyScapes are amazeballs.

They are lightweight AND comfortable. I actually forgot I had them on….(and almost took a yoga class with shoes on like a goober.) -_-

Since I’ve basically only taken them off to sleep (and do yoga), I was curious as to how they made a shoe so comfortable that was also functional in a variety of ways. (I lifted in them, boxed in them, and just carried on my regular daily life in them…which isn’t something I can’t normally do. I usually bring 2-3 pairs of shoes with me wherever I go. Not kidding.)

This is what I found out straight from Reebok:

“The SkyScapes’ Skyspring technology features a unique design architecture designed to help support the foot and provide all day comfort. This shoe is crafted borrowing the materials and soft molding process used to create lingerie, which provides all-around comfort and creates a shoe so lightweight that it weighs only 5.0 ounces.”

Makes sense! My only worry was that they were a light color and well, I am a busy girl. I’m running around all day, I have a dog, and it’s not strange for me to find myself running around in dirt. I was worried that by the day’s end, they’d be a complete mess. You can imagine my excitement when I found out that they are machine washable! #winning

I made my way to the event and was greeted at the door with a healthy breakfast and the cutest yoga mats I’ve ever seen! For someone who doesn’t do yoga very often, even I decided I needed to have one of these mats.

Tara led us through a 45 minute yoga class right in the store (the Reebok FitHub stores offer classes in addition to retail), which was the perfect way to start out the day. I had never met Tara before, but I’ve become a huge fan. She is so cute and has such a light-hearted, fun approach to teaching!

After we finished up the yoga class, I walked around and checked out what the store had to offer. This is what I love about Reebok (both the Fit Hub store and the brand in general)….they don’t cater to only one sport. Whether I’m looking for a weight lifting shoe or running clothes or CrossFit gear or anything else, they have options for me. I love that they have such a wide variety of items.

These pants caught my eye (wink, wink, friends and family, Christmas is coming up!)

And it only took me about 30 seconds to decide that I needed to buy these high-top shoes on the spot (and I did)..

Overall, this was such a great event and I’m sooooo excited to have a Reebok FitHub store in the area. If you live in the L.A. area, Reebok FitHub Studio City is OFFICIALLY OPEN:

A Day in the Life Part II

Here’s another edition of “A Day in the Life!” from yesterday!

6:30am: My alarm goes off. I purposefully set it extra early so that I can snooze a bit more.

clock7:30am: I finally decide it’s really time to get out of bed and get ready for the day. Charlie tells me that Oscar had to go out super early this morning and that he might not be feeling well. 🙁

7:45am: I start getting ready for the day, which includes putting on my brand new @ReebokWomen gear! (note: SkyScapes are my new obsession)

reebokoutfit8:33am: Charlie and I head out to get our morning coffee at our local joint. The edmeds24 machine is broken and I have to get a regular coffee (the horror!).

8:45am: I get on the road to head to the Reebok FitHUB Studio City grand opening! (I’ll have a full post up next week about the event!)

9:12am: I pull over to do a conference call for work.

9:36am: I arrive at the Reebok FitHUB store and quietly find my yoga mat. Tara Stiles is teaching and Haylie Duff is hanging out, which is such a treat!

Thank you  for a great yoga class at the BRAND NEW Reebok FitHUB Studio City!! The store is OFFICIALLY OPEN!!!Fantastic morning with some great ladies! Nice to meet you  ! Thanks  for this great event!10:30am: Yoga class finishes and I start taking photos, chatting with people, and then buy a pair of shoes (naturally).

11am: I leave the store and head back down to Santa Monica. Traffic sucks in a major way, so I take some side streets and make it down in about 30 minutes.

11:30am: I arrive home to a literal SHIT STORM. Poor pup. I call the vet to make an emergency appointment.

11:36am: I sit down to do some work before the vet appointment and eat a snack of an apple, almond butter, and a protein shake (with pumpkin added…YUM).

applealmondutter12:47pm: Charlie gets home. We take Oscar out one last time and try to get a “sample” to bring to the vet. It’s a hilarious adventure and ultimately, we got something! {I know you wanted to know, that’s why I told you.}

1:37pm: We arrive at the vet, fill out paperwork, and are seen almost instantly. If only human doctor’s were this fast!

1:45pm: The vet sees us and checks Oscar out head to toe.

2:16pm: We head home with some meds for the pup. He seems like his goofy self, so hopefully it’s nothing serious.

2:40pm: We stop at the Co-Op so Charlie can get a smoothie and I can get some chicken. As soon as we get back to the car, we realize Oscar needs to go outside. (Yes, we found out the hard way).

2:52pm: We get home, Charlie heads back to work, and I work from home for a few hours. I make some chicken and sweet potatoes to eat for what I guess I’ll call lunch.

5:07pm: I head to the gym to take a boxing class. I’m tired, but I know I’ll feel better once I’m done.

6:41pm: I leave the gym a sweaty mess and feel good. I head to the grocery store to get dinner supplies: ground beef, avocado, and some chips and salsa for Charlie

7:50pm: Charlie gets home. He cooks dinner while I shower, and eventually we devour the food. SO GOOD. I had a bunless burger with avocado and a slice of cheddar cheese. It was delicious.

8:25pm: Now…I’m writing this post and we’re on the couch cuddling with our love bug who is exhausted.

Questions of the Day

1. Do you own a pet? What do you do when he/she’s sick? I feel so helpless when Oscar doesn’t feel good. :-/

2. Am I the only weirdo that sets my alarm a full hour before I need to get up?



Tuesday Things & a Funny Oscar Video

Hey guys,

I’m currently at the grand opening of the Reebok FitHUB Studio City this morning. This yoga and breakfast event is hosted by Tara Stiles and Haylie Duff! I’ll have a full review up on the blog next week! In case you’re curious now, you can find other Reebok FitHUB locations here: http://fitness.reebok.com/Reebok-FitHub/Articles/2014-10/New-Reebok-FitHubs/

Tuesday Things (random thoughts from my brain)

1. My new lifting program from Bret Contreras leaves me SO hungry! I am basically doing a full body lifting session 3-4 days per week. I’m loving it so much, but my appetite is through the roof! SO excited to be lifting BIG again and I can’t wait to see how this changes the game for me.

Glute pump goin' on. Heavy squats, Bulgarian squats, 45 degree hyperextensions, banded hip abduction.

2. Kombucha addictions are expensive. I think I need to either pick having a gourmet coffee OR a Kombucha every day, not both. If I just start making my morning coffee at home, I can make room in the budget for this Kombucha addiction, which seems to be ever-growing.

3. Sugar affects me much differently these days. Since I have stayed pretty consistent with staying away from sugar since my No Sugar Added Challenge ended, anytime I do eat sugar, I feel pretty sick. It has made me not want to eat really sugary foods. This is a new thing.

4. I bought a Squat Sponge for when I do hip thrusts. Game changer.  (a.k.a, no more bruised hips!)


5. I watched the movie “Come Back to Me” on Netflix last night. It was kind of your typical thriller with the naive girl who can’t see the obvious, BUT it was actually pretty good. I wouldn’t say it’s GREAT, but it definitely had me on the edge of my seat. Thought I’d share since finding good thriller movies on Netflix can be kind of a needle in a haystack ordeal.


6. For your entertainment, watch my dog completely talk back to me. Punk.
