It’s official: I am an ACE-certified group fitness instructor! In January, I shared my goals for an empowered 2017 and one of my big to-do’s was to finish my ACE group training certification. I am slowly but surely moving down the list and excited to announce that two of my big goals for 2017 are officially completed (goal #1 was to become a better, less fearful skier – you can see how I did that here, here, and here). Because of our travel plans this summer, I hope to begin teaching 1-2x/week in the fall! I am passionate about health and wellness, and you’ll start to see that pop up more on the blog.
Because of my busy work schedule, weekend adventures, and playing host to several lovely visitors over the last 1.5 months, I wasn’t able to prepare for the ACE test as much as I had planned. Two weeks before the test, I posted an SOS in our private Sweat Pink Ambassador page and was flooded with helpful study tips and advice from my fellow Fit Approach community members. I was overwhelmed by our supportive, helpful, and genuinely kind ambassadors. It’s a family – granted, a very large family – but our community of 6,000 fitness professionals and healthy lifestyle enthusiasts is growing and stronger than ever, which brings me to my second important announcement:
I’ll be in California for the EMPOWER Race Series August 5-6!
Think Wunderlust meets the Nike Women’s Race Series… but better. Together with Titanium Racing, Fit Approach is hosting the first women’s only yoga and running festival weekend. For two days, we’ll stretch, sweat, and fly with power vinyasa, HIIT yoga, mellow flows, and inversions workshops, as well as the opportunity to run a 5k or 10k on Saturday or a half marathon on Sunday. (For all you over-achievers out there, you have the option to run both days.) I have a feeling the yoga- and running-filled weekend will feel a lot like our EMPOWER Retreat, which bonded twenty-five women over their shared love of community, yoga, wine, and trail running. It was a blast, and I can’t wait to reconnect with several of them in August.
