fitBallet + tank top giveaway! {Work It Wednesday}

ICYMI: Julie, founder of fitBallet and 805-native, brought her incredibly effective workout skillz all the way from NYC last year for a morning pop-up class at Studio Maesto in Santa Monica.  I probably should have planned a little better, because I definitely didn’t think I would sweat that much, and totally went to work looking like I had just run a marathon.

{psst… is this the first time you’re hearing about fitBallet? Check out our post  for the full 411 straight from the source, on Julie’s workout philosophy, career change, and dance background — or see this …

Five Friday Faves {This Week’s Edition}

Summer is starting to wrap up — but, as any 805-native knows, that hardly means the end of amazing weather, warm days, backyard barbecues, and balmy evenings.  Cram in some more summer fun before pumpkin-flavored-EVERYTHING starts rolling out!

5 Simple Ways to Incorporate Exercise into your Vacay {DIY Fitness}

I love to be active and explore while on vacation, as I think most people do — unless you’re more the lounging, reading a book type, which is also fine (I guess;). Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about laying poolside and enjoying a few Pina Coladas (which the waiter so kindly brought over to me) … BUT, that kind of vacay only happens every so often, and after a day or two of lounging, I’m usually ready for some activity anyway.

A Scenic Hike to the Top of Lizard Rock {Thousand Oaks}

Over Memorial Day weekend, my mom and I hiked up to Lizard Rock for a scenic outdoor workout. We entered from Hill Canyon in Santa Rosa Valley (which we’ve posted on a few times now!), and you can also enter it from Wildwood Park in Thousand Oaks.

From Hill Canyon, you can head up the switch backs to the left of the entry gate. Luckily, it was a cool day — and of course, the earlier you head out, the better.

Here’s a couple reasons why we love Lizard Rock/Hill Canyon & Wildwood Park:
