Event Recap: Tone It Up Tour

The fitness world seems to have exploded over the last week with all the fun and excitement of the Tone It Up Tour! TIU is a huge online fitness community and the two co-founders have taken the sweaty fun and brought it on the road. Obviously, we had to go! The first 4 stops of the tour were DC, NYC, Boston, and Philly. Pam attended NYC on Friday evening then we both traveled with our girls to Philadelphia for some meetups on Saturday and the tour on Sunday. Definitely recommend going to a meet up the day before- especially to go hang out in a new city!

Since there are still 11 more cities left in the TIU Tour, we wanted to give you our inside scoop to make sure you have an amazing time just like we did 🙂 Whether you are going GA or VIP, it is going to be so much fun. Just remember, this fitness festival is going to be what you make of it ❤

Step 1: Getting in line. Honestly, the line moved so quickly that it was smooth sailing into the venue. The line will get long though, so don’t wait to arrive until the doors open. We brought cards with us and played a few rounds of “Asshole” to pass the time. Once you get in, you’ll get your swag bag & bracelet then head to the stage and put your yoga mat down so you and your girls have a good spot together.

Step 2: Choose your activities strategically so you don’t have to wait in line. Zeel has massage tables set up for a nice 5 minute back massage 🙂 The line was short so we hopped on it immediately. Keep in mind there is also a braid bar (that line got super long and stayed that way all afternoon) and merchandise for sale. If you want merch then that has to be your first stop because they have a limited supply of sizes/colors of each item.

Step 3: Each tour stop has 3 workouts which are about 25-30 minutes long. Core Power yoga, an ass-kicking by Jillian Michaels, and some booty/core work with K&K. Feel free to skip workouts, branch away from your squad, and do your own thing! We skipped the yoga session and took that opportunity to hit up the photo booths, sample Krave and kombucha, make rose quartz beaded bracelets, and more! Pam and her cranky hamstring didn’t do much of the workouts at the NYC stop and had the best time ever! Partially due to the rose garden and in part due to all the amazing women who were all hanging out!


Step 4: If you have a VIP ticket then the rose garden is going to be a blast! They stamp your arm for meet & greets then call you by groups- aka no crazy line. In the meantime, you get to chill with your friends, drink rose, and hit up the denim bar. You can also come and go from the VIP area back out to the festival and peruse the vendors that are set up.

If you go in just looking for K&K, you’re going to be disappointed. This tour is all about the girls and the TIU Community. It’s the perfect opportunity to connect with girls who may not live in your city or you have only spoken with through Instagram. Because Philly & NYC are so close, there were a bunch of girls we knew and also so many opportunities to make new friends!

PS: Bring snacks! There are food trucks stationed among the vendors, but if you’re ballin’ on a budget, you can bring in food. We brought almonds and protein bars to hold us over after all those workouts 🙂

Who else went to the TIU Tour this past weekend?! We would love to connect with you! Share your favorite part of the festival below ❤ Who is going in the next few weeks? Where? What are you most excited about?!

Event Recap: SHAPE Body Shop

img_4190This past Saturday, B&B headed to NYC to take part is Shape’s Body Shop pop-up event. The event was a fundraiser to raise money for the Movemeant Foundation. The Movemeant Foundation “helps young women feel confident about their bodies by empowering them with the tools to be active.” Each class was $10 and they had a variety of classes from HIIT to hip hop to meditation. We signed up ahead of time for a triathlon of fitness; 3 classes with 3 instructors. Upon arrival, there was a party already going at 9am. They had a DJ, a photo booth, a display of Reebok apparel, a lounge area, and a bar that was serving Michelob, water, and snacks! We mingled a little, snapped a few photos in the photo booth, and took a shot of beer. Then it was time for the first of 3 back to back classes.

We started off with Power Training with Jen Widerstrom. First off, she is badass with a strong body and a personality to match. She spent the entire time mingling with the group and dropping motivational lines to keep up going. Her class was based on 30 seconds of a pre-fatiguing exercise, 30 seconds of a high intensity exercise, and then a 30 second rest. After we did 3 rounds, we then jogged around the room for a couple of minutes. It was a fantastic class that left us feeling strong and sweaty.

Immediately after was a LIFTED class with Holly Rilinger. Holly launched this class in NYC and describes it as a way to “lift your mind, body and spirit through a combined sequence of meditation and HIIT.” This class was a great combination of moments of mediation mixed in with strength training, shadow boxing, and plyometrics. All of the strength training was done to the beat of the music so we all moved in unison and then the moment we would go all out with a sprint in place or tuck jumps. Pam: We ended the class with a meditation and I grabbed Louise’s hand. I am so grateful to have her on my journey and we serve as each other’s cheerleaders.

After class we met up with our friends, spun the Reebok wheel for a gift card, and then headed upstairs for Jenny Gaither’s Notoriously F.I.T. Jenny debuted this workout at the Shape event in LA and I have been wanting to try it. Notoriously FIT was a hip hop based dance class in which she encouraged us to lose all inhibitions and let loose! It wasn’t about being a good hip hop dancer, but all about having fun. Before the class even started, we mingled and made friends with some awesome ladies who work for SHAPE magazine. We learned choreography that included a little booty shaking, strut the catwalk and struck a pose, then finished with a dance circle where we all had a turn to hop in and dance. This class worked up a serious sweat! We were moving and grooving the whole time.

After all our workouts, we enjoyed some snacks and refreshments. SHAPE hooked us up with our swag bags which were packed with goodies and discounts. Since we won Reebok gift cards, we also had to go there so I could buy Jen’s fabulous disco pants 😛 We followed our morning of workouts with brunch in the city because duhh! A huge thank you to SHAPE Magazine and the Movemeant Foundation- what a great way to work out and give to charity all in a Saturday morning.

Did any of you attend the event? What classes did you take?
