Remember that post I shared before about taking better care of myself? Well my goal has been to better myself, and also share more posts and information on fitness and health. I recently participated in a high intensity 6-week program and am excited to continue my new lifestyle journey feeling refreshed and stronger every day.  I can attest that this type of training works!

With that sentiment in mind, I am excited to share the following news! For those of you that have a 24 Hour Fitness location near them, I want to let you know that there is a new program that has launched – HIGHX, a program created by world class athlete, Gabrielle Reece using Lifeline products. Her initial reasoning was to train, and then include her friends, but she found that it “fulfilled a need to get friends working out while fitting functional training into their busy schedules.” Let’s face it, as moms and parents, we have to make time to work out. And when I’m in a class, it’s so much easier as it takes out the “thinking” process. I go and show up ready to work and sweat. I know that I’ll get a good workout in and that I’ll get the training I need to make sure my posture, position and body is doing the workout properly.

The HIGHX program consists of circuit training and its designed for all fitness and skill levels. The best thing about it is that they’re meant to work in small groups. There’s a sense of community and building support with others but you also can still have good instruction and coaching by the instructor in that type of setting.

This 50-minute high intensity class is designed to maximize the body’s ability to burn fat, build lean muscle, optimize the body’s hormonal and physiological  response to exercise, all while improving overall daily and athletic performance.

*While I am not being compensated for this post, it is sponsored. This weekend (Sunday 6/14) I will have the opportunity to meet Ms. Reese and participate in a master class with other members of the press! I am super excited to meet her, I followed her beach volleyball career and her husband’s surf career when I was younger, and it’s always inspiring to meet and hear influential people share their stories. Plus, how many people can say they’ve had the experience of working out with a world class athlete?! I can’t wait to share with you!
