Good morning my friends! First things first – thank you to everyone who entered my Reebok shirt giveaway! I have randomly selected two winners using a contest plugin and sent their contact info to Reebok. So if you’re one of the winners, you’ll be hearing from them! 🙂
The weather was stunning this morning – cool and sunny (where was that on Saturday morning in Annapolis?!), so I headed out for my first run since the half marathon Saturday – a casual 3.5 mile run/walk in my cute ZOOMA race shirt. I wasn’t really feeling a serious run – it just felt great to be outside in the beautiful weather!
When I came home, I cooled down with some stretching courtesy of a cool fitness video website called FitnessGlo.
I was given a complimentary 90 day trial to FitnessGlo via FitFluential to test out the site and share my thoughts with you guys. I’ll also be giving you a chance to win your own FitnessGlo membership – see the end of this post for details!
I’ve really been enjoying my trial with FitnessGlo! The site was created for women by women; the goal is that no matter how busy you are, you can still sneak in one of their workouts during the day without needing to leave home (or your office!). The video classes vary in duration and can easily be combined with other classes to create longer workouts if necessary. I love that they let you search by time – sometimes all you have time for is 10 minutes, right? And sometimes you might want to go for 45!
They also let you search by style, teacher (I recognized some of the names on there, like Ilyse Baker – remember when I took a cool cardio dance class from her at Reebok headquarters?), and level, which is great.
As you can see, there are a ton of great options on the site. In addition to just doing random classes when you feel like it, they offer specific programs you can follow. Love this idea!
I’ve been sticking to just doing random classes when I’m in the mood so far; FitnessGlo actually came in really handy when we were traveling in Italy! Our hotel in Rome had wireless internet so I fired up a few of the videos in the morning to get the blood pumping before sightseeing all day. (More on our Italy travels to come next, by the way)!
So far, I’ve been loving the stretching videos because I won’t really do stretching on my own unless I have someone telling me what to do. 🙂 And the HIIT and Tabata workouts they offer are awesome, too – they will really get you sweating!
The only thing I’d love to see the website add is an option to search by equipment – when we were in Rome I obviously didn’t have any weights with me and I would have loved to just sort by which workouts didn’t require any equipment!
So now’s your chance to win a free 90 day membership to FitnessGlo! To enter to win, simply leave a comment on this post with why you want to win this giveaway and how you would use the site. I’ll randomly select a winner on Thursday and FitnessGlo will contact them directly with information about claiming the membership! This contest is now closed – thanks for entering!
And even if you aren’t the winner, I encourage you to check out the site – all new members are eligible for a free 15 day trial. Enjoy!
Have a great day, everyone!
