Cycle For Survival 2017 Music Playlist. A Spin Class That Gives Back

Cycle For Survival

Cycle for Survival Playlist

Hi Friends!

Have you ever done a workout that gives back? They are so much fun! Get fit while you make a positive impact – it doesn’t get any sweeter than that.

This past weekend I joined EQUINOX and some of my #fitfam to teach for and participate in Cycle For Survival in San Francisco. It was my 7th year teaching for this incredible cause that raises money for rare cancers through a fun indoor cycling class. Did you know that About 50 percent of people with cancer have a rare cancer?? Rare cancers include brain, pancreatic, ovarian, stomach, all types of pediatric cancers, and many others. Even though they account for about half of all cancer diagnoses when combined, research on many rare cancers is drastically underfunded, often leaving patients with limited or no treatment options.

But the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center—the world’s oldest and largest private cancer center—is committed to changing that reality. And thanks to events like Cycle For Survival, have been able to make a POWERFUL impact in the fight against rare cancers. Thanks to the tremendous efforts of participants, donors, and supporters, Cycle for Survival has raised $126 million for rare cancer research, and funded 100+ clinical trials and research studies.

Teaching at Cycle for Survival means more to me every year. I am honored to have been able to teach for this very special cause and inspired by EVERYONE who continues to cycle, sweat, support, and give back. We will keep cycling till we find a cure. You can join the battle with us here: Http://www.cycleforsurvival.org/

I wanted to share my teaching playlist from my hour of the ride. I mixed it up this year and put together a flavorful combination of 90’s throwbacks and feel good songs that make you smile while you sweat. The theme for my ride was: “Ride for the joy of moving. Ride for the joy of living. Ride for the joy of loving.” 

And we did just that on February 11th in SF. We rode with heart and so much LOVE. Thank you for having me San Francisco!! You were awesome out there! I hope this playlist lifts you up and reminds you to move for the joy of it in your life.

Squat Variations You need to Try For A Nice BOOTY.

squat-meme

Squats are like the LBD of your workout—they’re the perfect staple and they make your body look pretty amazing. But just like your wardrobe, your fitness routine could use some variety. For an upgrade with major results, try these 7 squat variations from my book, Balanced Body Breakthrough. 

All of the beautiful exercise images below thanks to: Kuroda Studios 

bodyweight-squat

Bodyweight Squat

Stand with the feet hip distance apart toes facing straight forward. Extend the arms out in front of you for balance. Sit the butt back and down, bringing the thighs parallel to the floor. Make sure the heels stay on the floor and chest is lifted. Keep the knees behind the toes as shown in picture. Press through the heels to return to a standing position. Try 2-3 sets of 10-20 reps.

Squat Pulses

Perform a basic squat, but instead of returning to standing, stay in the lowest part of your squat with your thighs parallel to the ground and move up and down, keeping the movement small (a few inches up or down) and fast. Make sure your knees stay behind your toes. Try a 2-3 sets of 30-60 seconds

chair-squat

Chair Squat

Stand with your feet and legs together. Sit backward and down, pushing your hips out behind you. Lift your arms as high as you can, taking care not to let your chest drop. You can return to standing and repeat the squat, or for more of a challenge, hold it. Have fun with this one, hold for a set amount of time or mix it up with sets and reps going up and down.

pistol-squat

pistol-squatPistol Squat

Stand with feet hip distance apart and raise the right leg, flexing the right ankle and pushing the hips back. Lower the body while keeping the right leg raised (a squat with one leg).Hold and then return to standing. You can use a bench to squat/sit on to work your way towards doing the single leg squat if needed. Keep the knees behind the toes and the heels firmly on the floor.

squat-jump

squat-jumpSquat Jump

Give your squats a lift with this plyometric movement! Not only do they work your muscles harder but they add some cardio to your strength training. Start in the beginning squat position. Lower yourself about half way and then jump up in the air landing softly on your feet as you return to the ground. You can swing your arms for more flavor and fun if you’d like.

wall-squat

Wall Squat

This is one exercise where time slows down. Stand with your back against a wall with your feet hip width apart. Lower down until the tops of your thighs are parallel to the ground and your back is flat against the wall. Now hold. Keep holding. Think positive! Embrace the burn. Stay for 30-60 seconds or longer if you want to have a lower body party at the wall.

Not only will dropping it like a squat strengthen your quads, hamstrings, and glutes, adding squats to your regular workout routine could mean fewer injuries . And you’ll increase your bone mass which will help you avoid osteoporosis as you age . Squats really are one of the best ways to a stronger, more powerful, shapely derierre. Try out the exercises above and make it a goal to perform activation + strength exercises for your glutes, hips, and thighs at least 2-3 times a week for best butt results. Take my word for it: these moves look simple, but they are going to transform your backside and keep your butt happy for life.

Want more? Join me to “drop it like a squat” at my Birthday BOOTYcamp this September 29th, 2016 at City Nights Club. Space is limited. Grab a friend, register now, and join me to squat the night away.

Here’s an Inside Look at What Goes Down at BOOTYcamp.

Its been a summer of squats and smiles here in my little world of San Francisco.

My purpose is to help people live FEEL good lives they love, inside and out. So this year, I’ve been working to host monthly fitness events to create a new kind of “night on the town” experience to help active, social people connect with each other and achieve personal fitness goals together.

These events are inspired by doing the things I love — connecting with friends and sharing a night out. My goal is to create unique programs that can fit into participants busy lives so that they can be challenged, rewarded, educated, entertained, pampered, and most importantly, connected, to experience what they enjoy most — fitness and friends.

So far, the most popular events I’ve hosted have been my summer “BOOTYcamp” series, a butt centric workout class and healthy hour in a nightclub. The series kicked off in June and we continued to build the butt momentum in July and August. Our last summer BOOTYcamp was August 17th and it was a booty blow out event. The City Nights club doors opened at 545pm and guests were checked in at the door by the friendly MoveWith events team. Music was bumping as people trickled in and started socializing. Mats were laid out on the floor under neon lights and a bright disco ball. The ambiance of the colorful club was unique and energizing, I could feel the excitement building as everyone settled in.  Our workout started at 6:15pm to the sounds of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg (you know how I roll ;). Throughout the hour class we did it all: squats, lunges, bridges, butt burpees and more. Everyone got to take it at their own pace and there were lots of breaks for high fives and zico coconut drinks. Throughout the class, I encouraged everyone to say “I love your butt” to fellow BOOTYcampers because as you know, smiling really is the best exercise 🙂

After the class we all spent time hanging out and sampling the post workout healthy treats. Perfect Bar brought us 100 calorie peanut and almond butter snack bars (have you tried them?! so delicious). Kevita supplied us with several of their delicious flavors of kombucha (mint mojito, lemon cayenne, lavender, pineapple, coconut, mango, and more). And Zico coconut water served up watermelon, pineapple, natural, and chocolate bottles.  The energy was so positive and from the sound of it, everyone had a really good time. I loved reading all of the instagram and participant photos from the event, here are a few so you can share in the endorphins with us:

I got home at 8pm (party animal) and was hit with a huge smile when I walked in my door. This is what I am meant to do. Host fun events that feel good and share that with others.

I am so thankful to the product sponsors ZICO Coconut WaterPerfect Bar , and Kevita for participating. It’s always nice to work with companies/people who believe in what you’re doing and want to genuinely be a part of a cool experience. It’s a good sign when the only hangover you have from a night out is a sore butt and a happy heart. I’m grateful for the squats that turned into strength and the workouts that have turned into friendships.

The Reasons Why I Like Strong Butts (and can not lie)


Sir Mix A Lot – Baby Got Back (1992) by fantomasdj

Heres my Caroline Jordan Fitness remix of Sir Mix a Lot…. and another reason why I should not be left alone with rap music 😉

“I like Strong Butts and I can not lie

You other fitness friends can’t deny

When a booty walks in with a lot of muscle tone

You get Sprung, wanna say whats up

Cause you notice that butt just rocks

Deep in the lulus their wearing

I’m hooked and I cant stop staring

Oooooh Baby I wanna lift wit cha

And take a picture

My gym friends want one wit me

Cause that butt you got makes me so happy

Ooh, Rump-o’-smooth-skin

You say you want to go to the gym?

Well, take me, take me

‘Cause you ain’t an average cardio junkie

I’ve seen em dancin’

To hell with romancin’

Their sweat, ripped,

Got it goin’ like a turbo ‘Vette

I’m tired of magazines

Sayin’ flat butts are the thing

Take the average fit friend and ask them that

You gotta pack much back

So, friends (yeah) friends (yeah)

Are you ready to work your butt? (hell yeah!)

Well lets shake it (shake it) shake it (shake it)

Shake that healthy butt

Baby got BOOTYcamp

Special thanks to my fit friends for posing for this photo :)

Special thanks to my fit friends for showing off their strong butts for this photo!

Here are a few other reasons why I like strong butts (and can not lie):

  • Helps protect you from injury
  • Improves athletic performance and movement
  • Gives you shape and curve
  • Helps you shake it on the dance floor
  • Keeps your posture on point
  • Makes your joints feel healthy and happy
  • Turns heads and melts hearts (you know Im right 😉

Without a doubt, a strong butt makes you more powerful and capable in life. This applies to both men and women. Everyone deserves a great butt!

But building a strong, firm butt doesn’t happen by accident. You’ve got to love yourself enough to put in the sweat in order to develop a strong, healthy butt.

But you know what? You are worth it. And I want to help you build a butt that makes you feel good inside and out.

How You’ll Feel After BOOTYcamp July 20th… loving life and loving your butt 😉

Post BOOTYcamp Happiness!

BOOTYcamp June 2016 Event Recap.

Teaching BOOTYcamp. What a BOOTYlicious night!

Teaching BOOTYcamp. What a BOOTYlicious night!

I am still coming down from the high of such an incredible BOOTYcamp.  The entire event was so much fun to host from start to finish. I began planning the experience with the intention of creating a one of a kind night where guests could bond over fitness.  As a fitness professional for over 16 years (omg! getting old! 😉 ), I’ve seen the magic that can happen in group exercise. I believe fitness is one of the most powerful ways to bring people together and bring joy to people’s lives. 

Booty Tooch with BOOCH at BOOTYcamp

Booty Tooch with BOOCH at BOOTYcamp

The day of BOOTYcamp I didn’t need an alarm to wake up. I was so excited. I couldn’t wait to go out, dance, squat, plank, and socialize with friends. 6pm couldn’t come fast enough.

I arrived an hour early to set up at City Night Club in SF. The venue is right across the street from one of my favorite San Francisco Whole Foods locations (which in my book is a really good sign ;). I met with the City Night’s event crew, the MoveWith team, and the product vendors to set up. I was impressed by the cleanliness and layout of the City Nights club space. It’s a perfect venue to host a workout class. As I was setting up the music and micraphone, I invited the staff to join us in the class. The club manager seemed unsure about the experience (I get it. It’s not always easy to trust a bubbly blond wearing pink pants). “I don’t have workout clothes on me, but I hope to take the class next time” she said. “Ok!” I replied with a smile, “Just know you are always welcome to join in if you change your mind.”

Guests started to arrive at 5:45pm and were greeted by the MoveWith team with glow sticks as fun fitness accessories for the class. The first room of the club was set up with treats. Guests were invited to enjoy ZICO Coconut Water mocktails, ALOHA daily greens, and cold Clearly Kombucha drinks.

IMG_3059

The second room held the workout space: a large dance floor with three levels. Guests set up their exercise mats along the first two levels underneath the neon lights and disco ball. We supplied extra red MoveWith and blue ZICO yoga mats for guests who didn’t bring their own. People trickled in and started socializing. There were selfies, smiles, and lots of new introductions.

The turnout was great (around 62 people). It was a good size for the club, the space felt full but everyone had enough room to move. There were participants of a wide range of fitness levels and experience: everything from advanced athletes, two pregnant women (4 and 7 months), straight men (smart guys ;), and even a mother and daughter team (love). 

At 6:15 I welcomed everyone and introduced the evening. “This event is different and I LOVE it. I want to invite you to have fun, move at your own pace, and focus on feeling good. Our goal tonight is to sweat, squat, smile, and repeat!”

My friend Ray Kang is a talented DJ who created a special music mix for the class. I gave him some of my all time favorite butt themed songs and he blended them together in a non-stop mash-up mix of fun. “My Humps”, “Bubble Butt”, “Drop It Low”, “Rump Shaker”, and more. The music was a huge highlight of the night.

IMG_3078

The workout involved a low-impact hour of effective butt shaping, total body exercises. It was a seamless series that flowed from one sequence to the next and worked with the music. Guests ranged in fitness level,  so the workout was structured in a way that everyone could find their own unique challenge and set the pace.

In-fact it was such an inviting challenge, I looked over half-way through the class to find the club manager, dressed in her street clothes, on a mat and moving through the workout with us! She later told me that mid-way through the class it looked like so much fun she had to join. “Thanks for inviting me, Im really glad I changed my mind! Now my energy is pumped up for the rest of my night, and thats a gift that makes getting my work clothes sweaty worth it.”

Yes. I’d agree with that 🙂

One of the coolest things about an event like BOOTYcamp is that it invites each participant to be completely in the moment. Because you are in a unique enviornment, surrounded by new people, and actively engaged in following a new workout format, you to become completely present. It is not your average “plug in and go” workout. The BOOTYcamp class felt connected and the energy was through the roof.

We finished our class with a cool-down and simple yoga stretch flow. I congratulated the room on a workout well done. I took a moment to acknowledge the participants, “I am proud of you for coming out tonight. It takes real courage to step out of your comfort zone and attend a class like this.  I am inspired by your willingness to try something new, to have fun with fitness, and to stretch yourself. I am so grateful to have shared this BOOTYlicious night out with you. My butt loves you. I hope you know how BOOTYful you are inside and out.”

Post class butt photos were a must…. all smiles after squats 🙂

Some of the PopSugar Fitness team came out to take class too! They created this fun little video Instagram post below. It makes me smile. 

 

I am so thankful to the product sponsors ZICO Coconut WaterALOHA , and Clearly Kombucha for participating. It’s always nice to work with companies/people who believe in what you’re doing and want to genuinely be a part of a cool experience.

This year I’ve hosted 2 unique MoveWith events. Each one is so special to me and I love you so much. Thank you for making each experience one of the best. You can follow my teaching profile on MoveWith for upcoming events here. If you guys ever have any suggestions for making these events an even better time please let me know in the comments.

It’s a good sign when the only hangover you have from a night out is a sore butt and a happy heart. It was night out I’ll always remember with people I’ll never forget.
