Shape Body Shop Event | Recap

Last month I attended the Shape Body Shop pop-up event and had the opportunity to take over their Snapchat for the day (@ShapeMagazine).

It was SO FUN. I signed up for 5 classes—I know that sounds crazy—but I couldn't decide on just 1! Each class was $10 and all proceeds went to the Movemeant Foundation, a nonprofit focused on empowering young women to feel confident about their bodies by using exercise as a platform for building a positive body image. All about it. 

The first class I took was called ‘Power Training’ with Jen Widerstrom from
The Biggest Loser—she ROCKED it. This class was filled with cardio/HIIT/strength training, with lots of burpees of course.

Like seriously, how FIT are these babes?! Jen (middle) Karena and Katrina on her sides (Tone it UP).

After Jen's class, I took a yoga class with Brett Hoebel called ‘Yoga Brazil’ which was kind of like Tai chi but for yoga. This class was on the roof of the Hudson so we had a 360-view of the city.


After a relaxing yoga sesh, we powered through Lacey Stone's ‘Sweat Camp’. I didn't think I would last through my 3rd class, but her energy is always SOO freaking contagious. I absolutely LOVE her! We first met at an Adidas event back in February and she never disappoints!!

Can you believe I'm still going at this point?! But how could I miss a Tone It UP class with Karena and Katrina (both the sweetest, friendliest girls I know)? OK, so I didn't FULLY participate in this class because by this point I was pretty exhausted, but I stayed to learn a few exercises on the bands—great for inner/outer thigh workouts and can be done anywhere!

Afterwards, there was a cute little snack bar called ‘Eat Right Cafe’ where there were Shape-branded cookies, trail mix, and chips. I decided to fuel up before the last class of the day which was ‘POP SCULPT’!! I can't tell you how sore I was after 5 classes the next day, lol. I had so much fun at the event though, and being able to document it all for Shape was AMAZING!
