Hi friends! I’m having an absolute blast here at the IDEA World Fitness convention. It’s my first year attending and I’m already blown away by the incredible classes, lectures and vendors. It’s definitely going to put a little pep in my teaching step and give me new strategies and tools to use when I teach. I feel inspired to become a better instructor and I’ve only been here for one full day. I’ll be posting a full recap of the conference, but in the meantime, I wanted to post about a fun event from Physique 57: a complimentary class and meetup at their Beverly Hills studio.
(With Lindsey, who kindly led us through the workout torture)
I had to take a cab to the studio from downtown, and let’s just say that traffic in LA is a liiiiiitle different than Tucson traffic 🙂 I made it about 10 minutes before class started, and hopped into the room full of blog friends. Thank you again to everyone who made it out to the event! Hope you had as much fun (or “fun,” haha) as I did.
Here are some pictures from the barre burning:
If you’ve ever taken a class (check out this Focus On post if you’re curious about P57), you already have an idea of the format: a warmup (with marches, muscular endurance with high rep, low weight dumbbells, and some pushup variations).
(Tracy, rocking out some rows! Hope you had a happy birthday, too, friend)
After warming up, we went to the barre to fully burn out our thighs, glutes, work arms a little bit more, and lastly, our core.
The instructor Lindsey was absolutely phenomenal. One of the things I love the most about P57 is that the instructors are always kind and motivating– they never seem to use fear tactics or make you feel badly if you can’t do all of the reps (which is usually close to impossible, at least for me, haha). She walked around and helped with form, and joked around with us. Even though class was wicked challenging, I think it went by extremely fast.

Thank you again to Physique 57 for hosting such a fun event, and to all of the ladies who joined me for a little workout. I loved meeting you and getting to hang out afterwards!
