Let's not push it

I love to talk about working out and the gym and all things fitness. If you ask me about my work out schedule I will print it off for you or set Google appointments in your calendar. I might be an over-share considering I have a fitness blog and preach fitness and health. However I have a very strict rule when it comes to pushing other people to the gym. Don't do it. 

If you ask I will tell, if you read I will inspire. But I won't judge you or push you into a gym membership. I suggest you don't do the same. I think pushing the gym/healthy lifestyle on someone is like pushing religion. You don't do it. Give people the option to choose for themselves and they will jump in head first to the front of the class. 

If someone started pushing me to the gym over a year ago I would not have done it. I needed to choose this life. I needed to decide that I wanted to go to the gym 5 to 6 times a week.

If you think someone is not living a health life style and you are concerned, tread carefully because I don't think there is a subject that is as delicate and sensitive then personal appearance and health. It's tricky. 

My advice, push it in the gym. Don't push the gym on someone. The best part about the gym is that it will be there when you are ready.

brb I'm heading to NYC to go to Taylor Swift's gym

If you follow the same hard news media outlets as I do you already know that Taylor Swift has been hitting the gym everyday in NYC and leaving in the most amazing outfits ever. I generally agree and support everything Taylor Swift says or does, and I can't be more supportive of an every day gym routine. 


Drop everything now and check out her amazing outfits. I never leave the gym this polished but that's okay we all have our strengths. Taylor's are looking amazing post gym and writing songs that change lives. Mine is writing fitness blogs and inspiring people  whether they want to hear it or not.

So let's get down to business. Taylor goes to modelFIT in NYC. This gym was started from a fitness trainer that worked with Victoria Secret Models. The gym seems to be classes and personal training. The motto of the gym is "it's not model thin it's model fit." Love that. I love the inspiration and drive of this gym. It opened in spring 2014 and with Taylor as their walking fit billboard I think they will be so successful. Check out their web page:

I will see you in New York flexing like Taylor.

saturday morning yoga

Any chance I have to be outside right now I will take it. After the worst winter I have ever personally experienced I have never appreciated the sun as much as I do now. This lead me to yoga Saturday morning at the Georgetown Waterfront. This is a weekly event of free yoga. It's great to get in a good workout and be outside with an amazing view.

The instructor is a pro, and a bro that works at crunch fitness. We got to meet his sassy mother. I definitely want to make this a weekly routine as often as I can. There is no better way to start the day then a calm hour outside in the sunshine. Just don't forget the sunscreen.

If you are in the area and interested click on the link below and sign up. Also follow fit dc for more information about great work out and fitness events in DC.

4th of July fitness

I have a pretty intense T-shirt collection. From college sorority T-shirts to everywhere I visit I can't miss the opportunity to pick up a wonderful graphic T. Now that my collection is getting a bit overwhelming I need to put these T-shirts to good use. I have decided to make some sassy T-shirts into sassy gym tanks. 

I am really getting into the bro gym tank style, see below. 



I used this tank for an example and turned 3 sassy shirts into some amazing bro gym tanks. Follow the directions below:

Step 1. Find the perfect T-shirt. Because of the holiday weekend I wanted to find my most patriotic shirt. The one below I got at Monticello with one of my best friends. She got one in blue. 


Step 2. Show off your guns. Find the perfect tank to use as a stencil. Then use a sharpie to make an outline of where you will need to cut the sleeves. Make sure to leave plenty of room to show off your guns. 






 
Step 3. Curve out the bottom. After you cut the arms, make sure to cut the bottom of the shirt. Cut the shirt in an oval at the bottom to add some more give to the tank. I think this makes it more flattering. 


There you have it, a sassy T-shirt turned sassy gym tank. Check out my other tanks I made below!
 


 
 
This shirt was for an ignauration party we had at our apartment.#28moredogyears
 


This is an amazing shirt some friends made for me in high school. Now an amazing gym tank.
