Fithaus w/ Style Firm LA @ the Parker

Stylefirm Fithaus

Last weekend, I also had the chance go attend Style Firm LA’s Fithaus experience at the Parker in Palm Springs. Any time there’s an event at the Parker, you know it’s bound to be a good time, but Fithaus went beyond a beautiful location and delivered a great workout with delicious brunch and treats.

Fithaus brunch

Fithaus is a series of wellness events around large music festivals such as Coachella and Stagecoach, this particular one was centered around stagecoach. This particular event was cohosted by Style Firm LA and Qalo. Style Firm is a line of body shaping activewear, available on its website and Bloomingdales, and Qalo is a silicon wedding band concept that takes the place of your normal wedding band when you’re doing activities such as working out. I might also add that they have the cutest logo! (See below on the black tote.)

The day kicked off with a workout by Best U studio. You incorporate the metal U’s throughout class as you would dumbells, and don’t let the pretty colors fool you into thinking it’s easy. They come in 4 and 8 pounds and I could not even lift the 8 pound one while trying to do abs.

Post workout, everyone was treated to a beautiful and delicious brunch with sips and a slew of different fun station for flower crowns by Cake & Punch, flash tattoos by Annabee Jewelry, coconut body oils by Kopari and other swag.

Cake and Punch

Cake & Punch specializes in event production and I have to say their flower crowns made from real flowers are possibly the most flattering ones I’ve ever worn. In fact, a week later and my flower crown still looks beautiful and fresh. (insert basic joke here :P)

Guests were also treated to some very pretty flash tats by Annabee, who had a station set up to get you ready for the festival.

My friend and fellow blogger Amanda also came with me and we had a blast lounging at the Parker. Qalo had a cute little area set up, and Stylefirm also brought a pickup truck full of their latest styles

Style Firm LA definitely knows how to host a fun wellness event, and they actually hosts these pretty regularly. Best part? It’s all free! Be sure to follow them on Instagram and Facebook to RSVP for their next event!

Lorna Jane Warehouse Sale

Lorna Jane Sample Sale

Lorna Jane is having a 3-day warehouse sale in Santa Monica starting today! Street parking is available today, Friday, and the lot will be free and open on Saturday and Sunday.

Pricing is as follows:

Sports bras: $45

Bra tanks: $40/$45

Singlet tanks: $20

Tights/Carpis/Leggings: $55

Jackets: $100

A select few windbreakers (by the door): $40

A select few slouchy pants: $20-$30

Candles: $15

Visors/hats: $15

Weight training gloves: $15

Yoga mats: $20/$25ish

Overall, I didn’t think there were any super great deals. In the past, there has been a samples/damages section that is heavily discounted (like $5), but they don’t have any this time. None of the really new stuff were there (I was eyeing the Wrap Me Up Sports Bra and it couldn’t be found), but then again, I’ve never been a Lorna Jane fanatic. If you really like the brand, it might be worth checking out.

 

Bend + Burn Fitness Series by Style Firm LA

BendandBurn

Style Firm LA is a new activewear brand launched here in LA. They are doing a free monthly fitness series at Bloomingdales in Santa Monica where different studios come to lead a variety of workouts. Tonight’s workout was led by Yogafit.

Class: YogaFit

Location: Studio is located in Brentwood

Work-out: Yoga

Difficulty: Level 3.5

Next day soreness: 3

Duration: 60 min

Sweat Level💦💦 Sweaty

Instructor Marxel (who teaches at Yogafit and Hot8) led quite the workout at Bloomingdales! I was definitely breaking a sweat between all the balancing, planking and attempted head-standing. If all of this was done at Bloomingdales, I can only imagine the intensity of a real studio class!

I attended the first event in Style Firm’s Bend + Burn series last month hosted by Orangetheory and had a great time so I was thrilled when the Style Firm ladies reached out to me about this one. Not only do you get a great workout, but there are always great refreshments, bubbly and snacks afterwards from Kombrewcha, Seasons 52 and more. Not to mention, we each got multiple swag bags and a bunch of Quest Nutrition goodies (which I LOVE). If you haven’t been to one of these events, be sure to sign up for the next one because they are a real treat! Marissa and Natalie of Style Firm also informed me that they will be hosting a fitness class at all LA Bloomingdales on Oct 3, so check back to get more info on that!

As someone who lives in workout clothes almost daily, I was also thrilled to discover that Style Firm has THE MOST comfortable sports bra I have ever worn. Not only is it soft with non constricting elastic, the Sculpt Web Sport Top is really stylish as well. Check out the pic below to see the cute back! You can get one here and save 25% with code “NAMASTE.”

Adidas by Stella McCartney Launch Party Workout w/ Celeb Trainer Nicole Winhoffer at SIX02

This past Friday, I had the fortune of attending SIX02’s Adidas by Stella McCartney launch party and workout led by celebrity fitness trainer Nicole Winhoffer. Her clients include Stella McCartney and Madonna and after attending one session with her, I am officially hooked. She has an incredibly charismatic and hilarious personality and she has moves! (She has a professional dancer background).

The workout was an intense cardio and conditioning burn and worked almost every muscle in my body. It started at SIX02 in Santa Monica, where we checked in and then ran the quarter mile to Reed Park, where the rest of the workout unfolded. It was high energy, with models in front and a live DJ, and Nicole’s shining personality of course. Unfortunately, she is based in NY and her NW Method currently does not have a home here :(. After the workout, we all went back to SIX02 for light bites, juices and a killer swag bag. Ms. Ellen Pompeo, aka Dr. Meredith Grey, made a special guest appearance as well!

Like I said in my previous post, LA is lucky enough to be home to some of most fitness-minded people in America! There are always free events going on and SIX02 has a ton of them. You can sign up for more cool events like this one by checking out their page.

Onzie Sample Sale

Onzie SS

Sample sale alert! I am as addicted to cute workout clothes as I am to Class Pass, so naturally I like to be on the pulse of cute athletic apparel sample sales. I’ll be sharing them here and on Instagram and Twitter with you as I hear about them.

This Saturday, August 1, Onzie will be having a sample sale at Trim Hair Salon (1424 Abbot Kinney Blvd) in Venice! They will have new bra tops, leggings, tanks and one pieces with prices start at $15! Cash only and all sales are final. The first 50 customers will receive a free Onzie tote bag.

Onzie was originally designed for hot yoga but has evolved to include spin crops and gear for other types of workouts. They’re known for their cute bra tops and crazy prints. A couple of my faves include their Chevron Track Leggings (they’re long but feel very light!) and their criss cross back bras. They also make a look-alike of the popular Lululemon Free To Be Wild Bra, which is called the Chic Bra in the Onzie line. In addition, they have a popular and cute cage back bra, but just be aware that it’s not as supportive as some of the other bras.

Get familiar with some of their styles on their site before hitting up the sale on Sat!
