What beautiful Saturday weather!
I’m loving it and took full advantage by going to Self’s Workout in the Park event in Central Park today.
I was so psyched and the event didn’t let me down at all! There were three workout areas, one in front of the main stage, one gated off to the side for pilates and yoga called the Quiet Zone, and another small gated off space for CrossFit. Sadly, every session of CrossFit was already full when I got there! I was disappointed because I was really looking forward to trying it after reading so much about it on Tina’s blog. Oh well, another time.
Check out the schedules for the main stage and the Quiet Zone though! Definitely enough to keep me busy throughout the event without CrossFit.
I know I should be doing yoga and pilates more, but I was so pumped up by the music today that I didn’t want to hit the quiet zone! I ended up joining in on the Ab Attack, Beach Body, Tabura, and LaBlast workouts. They were all awesome, but LaBlast was especially cool since it was led by Louis Van Amstel from Dancing With the Stars. It incorporated different types of dance and was really fun!
Garnier was even doing mini facials and Vaseline was doing mini massages! The line for the mini massages ended up being too long so I missed out, but the mini facials were awesome. So refreshing, I loved it! And the Garnier tent was all covered and blocked off, which gave my skin a nice break from the sun.
Lastly, Laughing Cow had some samples out and there was a guy dressed up as The Laughing Cow taking photos with people. I took a picture with him, but I felt bad that was someone was in that suit in that heat and sun – hopefully it has some sort of fan installed!
Overall, it was an awesome day! I had a blast and got an awesome workout that I’m sure I’ll be feeling tomorrow. Thanks for hosting this, Self!
