Down 4 Dogpound

If you follow me on the 'gram, then you are very aware of where I am at 11 am on Sundays. Looking at the huge logo in the photos about, I would say it's blatantly obivous. Ah, yes, Dogpound. I have spent my weekends trekking- not really trekking, but I love a good hyperbole- into the city to punch it out. When Monday morning rolls around, I am sore as hell. Does it hurt? Yes. But is it worth it? Oh yeah.

I cannot recommend Dogpound (or boxing in general) enough. You'll finish your workout sweaty, tired, but feeling pretty badass. After my first time at Dogpound, I was instantly addicted to the overwhelming positive enegery in the gym. If you didn't know any better, you'd think that a gym that trains models, olympic athletes, and some of the fittest people I've seen, might feel quite intimidating. Trust me- I always practice what I preach- the second you walk in the door that will all change.

Work it Out | II

Wearing: Nike top, shorts, and sneakers 

A little fitness inspiration for this weekend. 

Earlier this week, I went to the workout class, ((305)) Fitness. It's a HIIT workout-meets-Miami dance party that kills your muscles, yet is loads of fun. Trust me, my legs are so sore, but I can't wait to return to the blood pumping atmosphere of blaring music and flashing lights. They have two locations: NYC & D.C.... hit one of them for a killer workout.

Oh, and wear neon. Loads of it.

I've you been following me on the Insta-land or its chatty cousin, Twitter,you've seen that I've stepped up my fitness game. To spread my knowledge when it comes to workin' that body, why not head to the age old Interweb? 

I tend to workout 5-6 times a week for an 1-1 1/2 hour (riveting, right?). To be honest, my new found "gym-bunniesness" lifestyle is only a little over a month old, but I've fallen hard. Plus, Laser Midwinters regatta- the reason I'm down South at the moment- is a big enough reason to get my sorry ass into shape. Three times per week, I focus on cardio- my preference, you may be wondering? I run intervals on the treadmill for 20 mins, then row 2000-5000 meters on the rowing machine. Following that, I either do the stairmaster for 20 mins or an ab workout. The other days? I use the Nike Training app (hashtag there's an app for that). or the Kayla Itsines workout plan, which oh boy, my wobbly walking the day after is proof that those workouts, for the matter of the fact, work. 

As my self proclaimed title of gym rat/gym bunny/fitness aficionado/you get my point, looking the part is another half of it. Oh c'mon, don't deny the fact that those old t-shirts and worn in shorts don't exactly motivate you to run a mile a minute. Plus, with athletic gear ranging from Net-A-Porter to the originals like Nike (these are my favorite sneaks). Lululemon, and Adidas, workout apparelis a crucial part of one's wardrobe now a days. 

Quoting my new home away from home (Equinox gym), it's not fitness, it's life.
