I love to revel in the fact that I know some pretty fierce women. I love even more when we get together in the name of a sweat session.When I got wind that my fit pals Brittany Ramsey (@bin_nycity) and Melanie Torres (@headstandsandheels) would be hosting an event at Athleta in Flat Iron, I pulled out my coolest sports bra and sneaks. I was ready.
Brittany led us through an intense tabata workout-think 180 squats, burpees, and pushups. I don’t know if I’ve ever been trained by someone so upbeat and motivating (I swear she probably does this in her sleep).
Melanie followed up with a more relaxing round of partner yoga. I am so glad to cross this off of my yoga bucket list. And nothing makes you feel skinny like your partner volunteering to be on the bottom (I’m only half-joking).
Afterwards, we enjoyed refreshments from our sponsors Emmy’s Organics and GoMacro. It was a morning well spent in Lower Manhattan. Can’t wait for the next!
