I had no excuse not to sign up. The kid is at camp and the husband is fine doing his own thing. I know I’m nuts but I can’t think of many things better than what was outlined above. This is my idea of a DREAM afternoon.
I went and it was AWESOME. The crew from Lululemon Brentwood is always so upbeat and positive. Kris at Burn 60 led us through a challenging 30 minute class. My experience at Orangetheory was even better than my first visit. Brenden was fantastic and did a great job explaining everything and making sure we were using proper form. The energy was great and the workout TOUGH. Once I learned how to use the water rower I was gasping for air.
I can’t think of a better way to end then a stop at Brentwood Hot Yoga. I NEVER knew this place existed. It is a beautiful studio right off of San Vicente tucked away in a courtyard. Lululemon generously had yoga mats in all colors waiting for us upon our arrival. Along with the mats each of the sponsors threw in some swag – water bottles, towels, free classes, etc.
I feel like I should have been paying for this and instead I was gifted with a fantastic workout, camaraderie with 20+ people I’d never seen before in my life, and some mementos to take home. I had to leave right after class but the fun continued back at Lululemon with a Juice Crafters tasting and a raffle for prizes.
