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.


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.

A HUGE thanks to brick bodies for thier time, room and support. Click here to check the out.

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.

Today’s food journal…

Food Notes
2 egg scrambled with onion, peppers, broccoli and bacon bits Really making an effort to get protein in the AM.
Strawberries and fresh cantaloupe From the farm stand and FANTASTIC!
Larabar on way to Fitbloggin local All I had time to grab on my way out the door.
burger on a whole wheat bun, 3 ears of corn and roasted veggies was SO hungry! I was so busy I didn’t really eat a lunch.
Hot fudge sundae with fresh strawberries at a local ice cream shop. SO good and NO regrets. :)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    So sorry I missed this meet up! Please tell me another one is in the works? Wasn’t the suspension workout fun? I’ve done it at my gym in Columbia and boy, what a great workout! I hope to see you at another meetup soon!

    I LOVE TRX training, theres so many things you can do with them including intergrating kettlebell workouts with the TRX. Its a great workout, glad you tried it!!!

    TRX is my absolute favorite form of exercise!!!!!! Glad you liked it as much as I do! Hope you find a way to add it in on occasion. I try to do it at least 4 times a week – my studio offers a crazy 17 minute express class that packs the whole hour workout into a fast paced burnout session – it’s exhilarating!
