We love S'well bottles for their easy to handle design and the way they keep our water ice cold during a workout.
But we've never been able to use them on our outdoor activities due to the fact that it is REALLY inconvenient to unscrew that cap in the middle of run, and nearly impossible on an outdoor bike ride.
That's why we are SUPER excited about the new S'well Sports line that features a "soft touch" texture, cool ombre designs and yes, FINALLY an easy to pop top for instant hydration on...more
You know I'm always looking for fitness gear that allows me to express both my personal style and my values, so I was excited when I came across "OUT-FIT". This athletic line is founded on, "The mission of encouraging athletes to achieve extraordinary physical goals while maintaining mental health and promoting social equality.".
Not only is this line creating awareness for the LGBTQ community, but it's doing it in a positive way---by empowering athletes to stay fit while being out and proud.
I ordered the PROUD tank...more
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and some of our favorite fitness companies are thinking pink with products inspired by or designed to support the research and funding needed to put an end to this devastating disease that affects one in every eight women. Here are a few of our favorites.more
For the past three years I've used Beats Powerbeats wireless earphones to deliver the soundtrack for my workouts. What I love most about them is the sound quality---it's very clear and delivers a great balance of bass and treble. However, what I don't like about them is the overall durability. Within less than three years I've had to purchase two new sets because they fell apart.
When my second pair of Beats gave out, I started researching alternatives, including true wireless earphones with no strings holding the...more
Anyone who knows me at all will tell you I have a strong fear of complacency. Of being sidelined. Of watching the game from the safety of the bleachers. There’s this voice inside of me that constantly reminds me that we only get one shot at life—and it gets louder with each passing year. In a way, it’s a good thing, because it drives my “why not” attitude and encourages me to try anything and everything that interests me. But it can also be a bad thing because that passion can lead to over-scheduling, and a frazzled, harried lifestyle as I try to make space for everything and everyone I...more
For someone who is always on the go I need to plan what my meals and snacks are ahead of time to avoid making a quick and potentially bad decision. I'm fortunate that my partner works for Central Market and is exposed to a variety of nutritious foods that I get to try. He know's I'm a sucker for nutritional bars, trail mixes and snacks in general, so over the past few months he's shared a few new products with me.
The snacks listed below are not only savory, sweet and delicious but they're healthy and filling. Pick them up at...more
... with one of our favorite current reads, "Girl, Wash Your Face," by Rachel Hollis.
You might be surprised to learn that this lifestyle expert and founder of "The Chick Site" has insecurities like everyone else, but she does, and she addresses them in a way that is both hilarious and heartwarming.
Reading this book is like having a good chat with your bestie and is great for giving you some perspective on those days when you're feeling a little "less than" or "not good enough."more
Nothing drives a workout like good music. That's why, as cycle instructors, we are always looking for tunes that get us (and you) in the mood to sweat.
Every month, we are going to be sharing some of our playlist picks with you via our BodyArchitecture Spotify account.
From current hits to our go-to, all time favorite jams, these are the songs that help us power through a 50 minute class--and we hope they do the same for you! Check 'em out at the link below, and tell us some of your faves too--we'll try and work them in!
There are two things we love: a good sweat and a good meal ---usually one right after the other. When we are hangry there’s no time to shower—we want food and we want it fast! We typically stuff our sweaty clothes in our gym bags, throw on something dry, and hustle to the nearest brunch spot. That’s why we rely heavily on body wipes, sprays and spritzes---we don’t want everyone else in the restaurant to lose their appetites while we satisfy ours.
We’ve told you about some of our go-to brands, but while shopping at Two Old Hippies in...more
