In case you thought we were done with announcing our giveaways… we have MORE.
Here is another sneak peak of what you can win at our BLOGiversary celebration [remember, it’s Saturday April 27 — a.k.a. TOMORROW — from 2-5pm at RELM Wine + Beer Bistro in Camarillo!]. See you there!
Copper Mugs Co. :: Who doesn’t love a good Moscow Mule, especially when it is served from a cold copper mug? Thanks to Copper Mugs Co. in Ventura, we will be giving away a set of copper mugs PLUS a hand-stamped cuff that says “MOM” — perfect for Mother’s Day …
Let’s just make one thing clear: we are pretty picky when it comes to workout classes. Also, workout classes and memberships are NOT cheap.
So, in our opinion, you have every reason to be a bit pickier than normal — especially when it comes with a service you are paying for and ultimately, investing in.
Having spent almost two years as ClassPass members, we’ve spent a lot of time in various studios across LA and the 805 — and from those experiences, we’ve put some “must-haves” in place.
Last week, we got the chance to stop in to the new StudioBPM in Agoura Hills for a Cycle + Circuit Combo class …
We’ve posted about Cardio Barre a few times because well what’s not to love about Cardio Barre T.O.? You get a great work out in, we love the motivating atmosphere, and they often have discounted rates through sites like Conejo Deals and Groupon. And if there wasn’t enough reasons to love them, we now love them even more thanks to the November donation campaign they are running for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is near and dear to our heart not only because Tanisha used to work there, but for those of you who don’t know, …
1. ICYMI: We are looooving all of this press about something we’ve known for, like, ever. Ventura County was just recently ranked #1 most naturally beautiful county in the entire United States. Hey, Santa Barbara, not too shabby for you, either — you came in at #3! Other honorable mentions from the 805 include Monterey County (coming in at #9) and San Luis Obispo County (#21). That’s out of 3,111 counties!
I, for one, am all about getting more for my money — high intensity, full body workouts. I like to sweat when I work out and I love being sore from a good workout (is that weird??). It’s my way of knowing that I’m making a difference.
We’ve mentioned SPN Pilates before – they’re located in the shopping center right off the 101 at Lost Hills.
They offer pilates reformer, spin and yoga. #Boom
Why we love SPN Pilates: Friendly, motivating staff and members, lockers for your goods, conveniently located next to organic market Erewhon Market, and a truly effective workout.
Our generation seems to be leaning more and more toward a healthy and active lifestyle, and the 805 is right on track. With the ever-growing abundance of locally-sourced and organic eateries, community races and activities, and privately-owned niche fitness studios, there are so many accessible opportunities for us to participate in this health conscience shift. And LocalLove805 is all about it!
We are especially fond of the magnitude of fitness studios in the Conejo Valley area; and, in case you’re not yet aware, I buy a lot of local deals — primarily fitness classes. The gym just wasn’t cutting it for me anymore — I was bored …
