    MUSIC MONDAY issue five

    First day of 2017 and the first Monday of the Year! Whoa, a perfect double whammy. I hope nobody had a heart attack. You might be expecting songs about doing things, making shit happen, chasing stuff, jumping off stuff, making moves, starting fires. Hmm… wrong blog friends.

RUN by Awolnation. I love this band. This track is intense not sure if I’ll ever use it in a class but it’s inspiring me at the moment.  National Anthem by Radiohead. Throwin it back. Who doesn’t love this song? If you’re not…

It was one of the most incredible experiences I’ve had to date. I’ll be sharing more about this adventure on my blog in January. So check back to get the inside scoop. Marie Claire Taiwan attended my first public class and snapped some epic pix.

    As a New Balance Fitness Ambassador, I get to do all kinds of cool things. One of them is contributing workouts to the NB Women’s Hub (Check it out, you’ll find loads of #fitspo there!) I shot this Stability Ball Sequence in an alley way in Venice Beach. I hope you try it… tell me what you think!  FYI: I purchased this stability ball at Target and if you haven’t noticed, I take it with me everywhere.
