A few weeks ago I attended a fitness event at one of my favorite fitness spots in the city 305 Fitness, you might remember that I hosted one of my free fitness events there a few months ago! This time Secret was hosting an event with Shaun T. I’ll be honest, the thought of being 5 months pregnant and working out with the creator of INSANITY scared the living daylights out of me…but when have you ever known me to back down to a challenge? 🙂
Shaun T is my spirit animal
Shaun T is an amazing dude. He has the BEST energy and such a great spirit about him. It’s SO easy to see how he has transformed thousands of lives with his incredible fitness videos. You might even be wondering what Shaun T has to do with Secret Deodorant?! He explained to us that he used to steal his grandma’s Secret when he was a kid because it was the only thing that kept him fresh! He actually mentioned this in one of his YouTube videos and boom, a partnership was formed!
When I got to 305 fitness, the studio was transformed visually into a place made for Secret. There was product, photo opportunities and so much more, everywhere! It was really cool, and the swag was really nice too. 😉
Working Out With Shaun T 5 Months Pregnant
We got started with the live DJ and I will admit I was super nervous. I’m still working out and all but INSANITY types of exercise? No way. Shaun noticed that I was in the family way and assured me that he’d give me modified exercises.
It actually ended up being super fun! I didn’t feel like I was overworking my body at anytime, there were ample water breaks etc. I didn’t get on the floor with everyone when they did burpees and shoulder touches…but Shaun gave me a stool to lean on while I did “mountain climbers” which was really cool. I had a great time, I broke a serious sweat and I am SO glad I made it happen!
What is Secret Active all about?
The new Secret Active Line comes in three scents: Fresh, Sport and Cool.
Fresh: has a blend of white nectarine, tropical pineapple and grapefruit with lily, puple fresia and lavender flowers.
Sport: A citrus blend that has a burst of peppermint, citrus fruits and notes of licorice, jasmine and gardenia.
Cool: A floral scent with a combination of a fruity cocktail with fresh green foliage.
Afterwards, I was able to chat with Shaun about his 7 month old twins. I asked him out of curiosity if they were sleeping yet and he told me that they were sleeping for an entire 12 hours! I immediately made him tell me all his secrets (see what I did there?) and he said that he started a routine with the kids that involved baths, massages and reading. Once they got used to it, they started taking the cues for sleep and falling asleep on their own. I am definitely going to try this with baby girl!
Thanks so much to Secret for having me for such a fun event!
I worked out LIVE with @shaunt and @secretdeodorant 5 months pregnant and I survived to tell my story! #chooseactive
