Traditionally, 4th of July activities include BBQs, pool parties, laying on the beach...oh and this year, a killer workout and a cool outfit! Our studios will be closed, but we've got you covered by creating an “on-the-go” workout just for you to follow before your celebrations begin. And if you want to amp up the workout with some amazing accessories check out Nike for sneakers, Lucas Hugh for stylin' shorts, and of course our fav water bottles by bkr. All you need is your body...and maybe water and a towel (wink wink!). Most of you will recognize these moves from our classes at the studio, Next Stop; Skinny and Sweata Weatha. If you’re away with friends and family why not bring everyone together and conduct the workout all together!

Ah, it’s time to cool-down! Take a nice child pose position to start and then slowly move through your entire body for a relaxing stretch while taking those nice, deep breaths.
