I’ve been really focused on prioritizing my health lately and taking better care of myself. That means eating better and hitting the gym as often as possible. Both can be challenging with a busy schedule, but I’ve been trying out different tricks to make my days flow as easy as possible. Things like writing down what I eat during the day, packing my purse with healthy snacks and hitting the gym in the early morning – before I start my day – have all helped me shed 25 pounds and put some extra energy back in my steps.
So, when I got an invite to try a new surfing workout as part of the new Simply Summer’s Eve launch I was totally down.
The event was held at Surfset Studio, a cool fitness spot in New York City and it was so much fun! Yes. You actually do “surf,” but there is no water involved:).
The surfboard is actually placed on top of three balance balls and you do surfing and pilates inspired moves on top of the board.
It’s a moderately intense workout designed to strengthen your core (tummy), tone your full body and improve your balance. I had never stepped foot on a surfboard before my workout, so it felt a little odd at first. I actually lost my balance once or twice but felt totally comfortable with each of the moves by the end of the 30-minute class.
I also was sweating bullets by the end and a little worried about offending my fellow attendees with my post-workout smell.
Luckily, we were covered here too. Simply Summer’s Eve is a new line of on-the-go cleansing cloths and foaming wash that are formulated to help maintain a natural pH and get rid of odor-causing bacteria. The cloths are individually wrapped – perfectly sized to keep in a purse or gym bag – and I wiped myself down with a Mandarin Blossom scented one before chatting with my new workout buddies.
The scent was light and pleasant and the cloth worked really. When I got home after the event I asked my hubby if I smelled (cause he would be totally honest with me) and he said, “no, why were you working out?” The fact that he couldn’t tell means I’ll be keeping these little wonders in my gym bag from now on.
So, I totally scored twice at this event with a great workout and new post-workout odor killing wipes. Honestly, it’s three times if you count the fab mermaid crown I got from Crowns by Christie. Can’t wait to rock mine at the next beach party.
Simply Summer’s Eve also comes in a Coconut Water scent and hits shelves in May 2017.
