So obviously some back story is needed on this! I am someone who loves to work out! You've see me work with Exhale Spa to create fitness weeks where you can enjoy their services at a super promotional rate! You've also seen me post work out with some of my girls at Physique 57 thanks to my partnership with Dove and now fitness is becoming a regular thing on the site. We're kicking it off with Schick Quattro for Women, the Q Squad and Gina Lombardi and it culminates in Miami! So last week I received an email saying that the Q Squad is a group of women who represent Fashion Stylist iennifer Rade, Fitness Guru Gina Lombardi and Life Coach Gabrielle Bernstein (whose book I read and will be on this site soon). They will be working with a few bloggers (including me) over the next month to get us into shape and then to show off our work in fabulous Miami at the end of next month! I love Miami and I feel we can always learn new ways to be fit. Schick Quattro for Women is all about looking fabulous and on their Facebook Page you can get these women's tips as well as follow along with the bloggers that are in this program as well! They believe in smooth moves that enhance women's lives beyond having touchable skins and really facilitating the entire woman - mind, body and soul.
They had me at Miami but I read Gina's book and love the idea of her deadlines as many times we know that we should exhibit good health all the time but the reality is that there are deadlines such as I need to look good in 3 months for a trip, in 2 months I'm going to my reunion, I'm meeting my boyfriend's parents in 1 month or I have to land this part and the casting is in 2 weeks. Gina lays this out in Deadline Fitness and creates activities that you can do whether you use machines or don't! I am interviewing her on Mon so if you guys have questions please feel free to post them here or to send them in so that she can let you know her thoughts!
I am doing the 1 month challenge and will be kicking off the workout on Mon June 28th for 30 days straight! I have partnered with Natural Fitness which is a premium eco-fitness line as I will do the non machine workout and wanted to get their Burst Resistant Exercise Ball as well as their Soft Hand Weights (4 lbs) which I will use in lieu of dumbells! I am definitely all about eco and I love their concept "Green Your Workout. Green Our World." which is fab since not only are their products sustainable, but for each one sold, they plant a tree. They will be working with me and I will share the successes, goals, etc as I do my 30 days! If you've always wanted a partner to exercise with or someone to chat with, now you have one - let me know next week who would like to be apart of Kitten Lounge's Squad and receive special incentive for your interest and acceptance of our mission! But once the 30 is over, I will continue on as fitness is a lifestyle and you will find out about other exciting programs that I will be working with! College students, you will definitely enjoy this especially if this is your first year heading out to your new school!
I can't wait to share, Tweet, FB and to also converse back and forth with the partners on this as well! For this segment, this will appear on Thursdays as well as Saturdays up until the trip. Once the trip takes place, we will firmly have this as a Saturday segment so that you always have a place to go to for tips, great products, etc and I'm so glad to be working with everyone involved!
