Our Go-To Guide for Hiking Solstice Canyon {local trails}

Summer means spending lots of time outdoors, especially since the days are long and it is always gorgeous out here! If you’re looking for a great hike [with lots of shade… hiii heatwave!] that is dog- and kid-friendly, look no further than Solstice Canyon.  Here’s one of our favorite throwback posts for today’s Work-It Wednesday — enjoy!

::: ::: ::: ::: :::

So, I woke up on Saturday morning and got the strange urge for a hike.

Now, for me, hikes are fine and all, but I have a couple of caveats:

1. The hike needs to be pretty gorgeous and/or have …

3 Must-Haves for a Killer Workout Class [& how StudioBPM has them all]

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 …

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 …

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.

I was recently camping at Refugio Beach (one of our family’s fave local campgrounds) and realized how many simply ways there are to incorporate exercise and/or …

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:
