Hashtag: #NBGNO…New Balance Girls Night Out
Pre-Sweatsesh: Opportunity for plenty of selfies at the branded New Balance wall or let loose at photo booth with props on hand for the shy crowd. FREE massages by LA Sports Massage while a super talented caricature artist drew self portraits. Go Girl Energy Drinks were available and Rain Africa gave out samples of their handmade bath and body products using natural products with African origins.
Sweatsesh: Sarah Kusch led us on a strength training workout utilizing resistance bands and HIIT training…that almost made me pass out! Throw in a little partner training with DJ Brandi Garcia playing hot tracks and it was a party. DJ Brandi Garcia somehow managed to join along while DJ'ing and even made up her own salsa lunge!
Post-Sweatsesh: After Sarah's crazy workout, Amazebowls was on hand to serve up the tastiest acai bowls. The absolute perfect post workout snack that should be available after every single workout…It was really that good! There was a brief Q & A session where Sarah shared her story of how a terrible car crash as a teenager lead her to personal training and why she's in the best shape of her life after becoming a mother. You'd never know Sarah's struggle from looking at her, but serves as a reminder that everyone has a story.
Two lucky ladies who posted photos using the hashtag #NBGNO received a gift card and a free pair of shoes! Everyone in attendance received a super cute tank and hair tie (also known as a bracelet) as a parting gift.
