Happy Anniversary B&B!

Life is about taking chances – chances that force you so far out of your comfort zone. IMG_9086

It’s our 1st Anniversary!

When we took the leap of faith to launch Burpees & Bordeaux a year ago we didn’t know where it would go. We knew we wanted to share our journeys – the highs and the lows, we wanted to share solid research backed information, and we wanted to share our love for fitness (and wine). Little did we know we would connect with some of the most bad-ass women in the industry, grow not only as friends but also fitness professionals, and also expose our most vulnerable selves. We are so grateful for each and every one of you who read our blog and support us in our journey. A special shout out to our friends, our families, and significant others who support us day in and day out! Thank you to our friends at lululemon RF for letting us reach more individuals and all of the Tone It Up- Long Island girls who always come out to support us.

We love you all and can’t wait to see what the next year has in store for us!

Xo, Louise & Pam

Event Recap: Bootcamp at Bandier with Holly Rilinger

Maybe you know her as a face of Nike… Maybe you’ve taken one of her classes at Flywheel Sports… maybe you’ve seen her on Bravo’s Workout: New York… Ooor maybe you came and sweat it out on the sidewalk in Manhasset this morning. That’s what I got to do! 🙂

Bandier at the Americana Mall in Manhasset hosted a great event which was the perfect morning pick-me-up! Holly Rilinger instructed an outdoor bootcamp class right on the sidewalk in front of Bandier. Thankfully this rainy weather we’ve been having held off and we got our workout in.

We moved into each round of our sidewalk bootcamp with a quick demo, always keeping our heart rate up and our feet moving. Holly is such a motivating instructor! She took the time to learn all of our names and keep us pumped up because we were definitely sweating. Holly encouraged each of us to keep going, dig a little deeper, and truly challenge ourselves. After each round there were high fives all around 🙂 If you guys have never worked out with Holly, you are in for a treat! Go take one of her classes. Now!

Not going to lie, I was a few minutes late because I came straight from teaching my cycling class 😦 But this is the workout we did from where I jumped in! I hope it kicks your butt, too ❤

Holly’s Bandier Bootcamp Class

Round 1:

  • Russian Twists (feet off the ground for an extra challenge)
  • Inchworms with a pushup
  • High Knees (really drive those knees up high)
  • Plank

Round 2:

  • Diagonal/Curtsey Lunges (2nd time through- pulse it on one side)
  • Tricep Dips
  • Toe Touches (legs straight up, pull those abs in and reach up)
  • Skater Hops (side to side- just like in today’s Workout Wednesday!)

Round 3: Booty & Abs

  • Glute Bridges
  • Touch Backs (sit up tall, feet in front, then turn and reach one arm behind you)
  • Rockstars (like a back bend with one arm & working the glutes!)
  • Donkey Kicks
  • Bicycles (slow, then fast, and slow again!)

Round 4: Finishers! 30 sec rounds x2

  • Push-Jack (pushup, jump your feet wide then back in and pushup again!)
  • Squat-Jacks with a reach to the ground
  • Plank
  • Split Jog (like scissors forward and back but in a low, athletic stance)

After we took some time to stretch our muscles and catch our breath, our fabulous friends at Bandier had snacks for us! Recovery drinks from Montauk Juice Factory and chia bars from Health Warrior. Yum!

A huge thank you to Bandier Manhasset for hosting this wonderful event. FYI they are hosting fitness and health events every day this week (check out the schedule above). We’re talking Two Worlds cycling and mat classes, SLT on megaformer, and mini nutrition sessions… hellooo!

And a big thank you to the lovely Holly Rilinger for the killer workout this morning! It was such a pleasure to meet you. I hope to take another class with you soon 🙂

Get up and get sweaty,
Louise
