Last year, the A Healthy U Conference was such a success that we decided to keep the momentum going with a mini event! Cassandre, Kim and myself really wanted to make sure 2015 got off on the right foot with a fun fitness focused event!
It was SO cold in NYC, like crazy wind chill get in your bones cold. That did NOT stop some amazing women from coming out to dance AND set some goals for their healthy living journeys!
We chose to have the event at Pearl Studios and I am so happy we did! The venue is extremely convenient to transportation and the spaces are beautiful with pianos, hardwood floors and ceiling to floor mirrors. I WISH I had mirrors at the dojo that I teach in every Saturday!
We had a fantastic class too. The energy was CRAZY! I chose a special playlist for these ladies and not only did they get all the moves right away–they added their own special flair of amazing that took the class to another level. I so wish I could do this every week! Although, I was teaching the class I had some really great photographers that were able to get some really special moments.
Afterwards, we grabbed some snacks, brought our heart rates down and began our goal setting session. Kimberly is already really great at goal setting so she led the session. We sat around Indian style and announced our goals to the world. I was so inspired by all of these beautiful women sharing their health and fitness goals. We had people that wanted to lose weight for a special occasion, to those who wanted to eat a cleaner diet, to those who wanted to simply try new things! I shared my own goal of crossing the finish line at the NYC Marathon this year–no time limits, no big expectations–just finishing my first full!
We had a goal setting sheet that Kim put together for us that listed our goals and how we were going to break them down. This really opened up my eyes to my own goal challenges because I am really going to have to make some time to fit in all of my training runs especially on the weekends!
Even though it was only two hours we really had SUCH a great time! It is so great to see our vision of reaching our community through health and fitness come to life. I am so excited for the main conference in MAY! 2015 is really off to an amazing start!
