Fitness Friday VIII

*original post

Welcome back to Fitness Friday! This is my monthly roundup of workouts, new foods I have been trying, and activewear picks. This month I spent a lot of time at AIR Aerial Fitness participating in their Silk Sisters 2 week challenge. Everyone paired up in teams of 2 and we earned points every time we attended class, extra points if we attended together, tagged on social, etc. for some great prizes from a few businesses in Charlotte. You may have seen I partnered with fellow former dancer friend, Sophie (check out her Insta for some wonderful workout ideas) and we had a lot of fun with it! We did not win the challenge, but stay tuned to my Instagram for a fun giveaway coming up! And in case you missed them, here are my  Fitness Friday posts from July and August.

I ended up with 22 workouts since my last Fitness Friday post! I also tried the new ClassPass Go app as I was stuck inside during the hurricane a few weeks ago. I really like the app so far, for a reasons: its free, there are many options of workouts, and you can pick your favorite genre of music for every workout. I'm doing quite a bit of traveling during October and I think I'll be making use of it when I'm away from my Charlotte studios.
The only new class I really tried was Chakti Yoga, which I just took a few hours ago as I am typing this post. It was a huge class held in a brewery and it was so much fun! The movements were all based in yoga but it turned into a lot of dancing, quite a bit of cardio, and even a core work section. It felt like a giant dance party with blacklights, neon paint, and loud music, and a great workout at the same time. If you're local to Charlotte, SweatNET has been hosting it monthly (free for members!) and I really hope I can make it to the next one!

  1. I mentioned in my last post I started making salads, after 24 years of never eating salad. And I am happy to say I kept it up throughout the month! However I have just kept making the same one over and over. So I do need to find some new recipes soon, if you have any favorites that are quick and easy to make, please send them my way!
  2. I also have been making some progress in eating less dairy. I may save why I've been successful with it for another post, but cheese usually somehow made its way into most meals I ate. But I have done fairly well with limiting myself to much less of it lately! It is something I had been planning on fixing at some point, but I almost immediately saw improvement in my skin. I wish I tried it years ago!


Thanks for reading!
