Hybrid exercising: Piloxing and Barre Ride | WJLA.com

Good news! The story I taped for ABC 7 here in D.C. a couple weeks ago aired this morning. As promised, you can see me in action here: Hybrid exercising: Piloxing and Barre Ride | WJLA.com.

If it peaked your interest, remember you can always join me for a class at XSport Fitness in Alexandria for Piloxing on Wednesday nights at 6 p.m. and on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. Hybrid workouts are definitely the way to go – so come have some fun and get fit with me!

My Television Debut … Wait, Does This Make Me Legit?!?

Okay, technically, my television debut was in 1987, when, as a kindergartner, I was one of a handful of kids interviewed about the Super Bowl (I’m happy to report that my football knowledge has increased significantly in the 26 years since).

I’ve kind of teased it a little, but a few days ago I received a phone call from my group fitness manager. She informed me that the local ABC station was interested in doing a segment on heart healthy workouts (with February being heart health month and all) … and they had asked specifically to cover one of MY classes! Super exciting!

So tonight was the night. It was pretty cool to get interviewed prior to class, and to have the camera man moving around the studio as we went about our workout. They only stayed for about 20 minutes of class, but I figure it is probably only going to be a two or three minute story (see, I did learn something in those TV journalism classes I took in college). Just wish they could have been there for the last half of the class, because it tends to be the toughest – and my favorite part! Still, it was an awesome opportunity and I’m really looking forward to seeing the final package. Perhaps the start of my fitness empire…?

Stay tuned … I’ll see if I can post the segment once it airs!

Turn Must See TV into a Workout

The fall television season is finally underway … what will you be watching? Whatever your show of choice, remember that there are still plenty of ways to keep active while watching your favorite shows (word is Jessica Simpson has been dropping the baby weight by watching 24 on the treadmill – it sucks you in and keeps you going).

I came across these “workout while you watch” graphics and thought I’d share them, as motivation to get moving while you get back into the new fall season. Pick your show (or do them all) – and feel free to do the New Girl workout during both episodes – airing at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. EST tonight!

Your Tuesday workout … and you get to do it twice tonight!
