Today was the first official FitBloggin’ Local World Meetup day. FitBloggin’ Local is a way for the FitBloggin’ Community to meet and mingle in between conferences.
I took the reigns and organized something small for the Baltimore folks by contacting Brick Bodies, a local gym. They agreed to host us and we met at their downtown location to try a new (at least new to me) workout class, TRX Suspension training.
It was AWESOME!
I was really scared. I mean the room looked like a torture chamber.
However, we faced our fears and prepared to experience.
The class started with a warm up that got us used to the moves and prepared us for the class. After the first few exercises I started to really enjoy the stretching that went hand in hand with the strength training.
The workout was surprisingly challenging without being difficult, if that makes any sense. Using just the straps and your body weight, it’s amazing how much you are able to do. Like yoga, all the exercises had variation to match your personal fitness level, and it was super easy to adjust while you were working to get the most out of your workout without simply giving up.
Overall it was a great class and I loved getting to see and hang out with fellow bloggers. Something I only get to do at conferences.

The rest of the day was great! I did boot camp this morning, grilled with the family and went out for ice cream. Oh how I love summer. :)
In other news, I shared why I love being a Mom so much on Baby’s First year.
