All of the rumors are true. Everything you’ve been hearing is true. And I’m finally ready to let it all out in the open. I’m ready to come out of hiding and confess to the world (errr, to the few of you who are reading), that’s its all true.
The all night backstage parties with Justin Bieber – where we watched the sun come up, our eyes glazed over and our lungs out of breath from too much karaoke – always nodding our heads yes to one more song when we really meant no….Honestly, I’m still out of breath just thinking about it. It was epic. Amazing. The time of my life.
And yes, those rumors you heard about my husband, they are all true as well. I know he hates to admit it but he’s just as much of a Belieber as I am. What can we say? Justin took us all to places we ain’t never been before.
Many of you noticed that I took a major hiatus from writing, from updating my blog and I so appreciate your patience. A huge thanks to the many of you who wrote to check in to see if I was OK and a huge apology to those of you who received a note that I was backstage partying with the Biebs….seriously, is it too late now to say sorry?
Ok, ok, the truth is there were no backstage karaoke parties. Wait? What?!?! And I’m not 100% certain that my husband is a Belieber (but you can rest assured that I will never stop beliebin’). Whoa. Whoa. Whoa.
The truth is that we opened up our first ever Fit Approach fitness studio, Flex & Flow, right here in Portland, OR. And I’ve been head’s down, all day, all night crazy busy making what was once a dream into a beautiful reality. So busy that the kind of tired I’ve been feeling has been the kind of tired I can only imagine happens after a week in Vegas partying (and ahem, karaoke) with the Biebs himself….
I mean, we finally did it. We opened up our first physical manifestation of our amazingly wonderful online community – its something we have been scheming, dreaming of and building for the past 6 years or so. It’s the start of what we hope to be many more like it.
It’s all the things people love about us online, under one roof. Its sweat. Love. Community. Fun. Laughter. And friendships. And a little yoga, my signature Flex & Flow Yoga (aka Hiit Yoga), bootcamps, run clubs, and upside down sweaty fun all rolled into one amazing space…..
Plus, of course we have all the best snacks – thanks to our incredible partners – Wild Friends and Clearly Kombucha! #allthesnacks…
We’re now 4 weeks in and I could not be more proud of what we have created. The pure joy and happiness that permeates from the space is undeniable. People walk in and find their people – we laugh, we crow, we run, we sometimes even face plant and above all, we challenge ourselves to be our best selves.
If you haven’t come in for a class, a run, a good sweat… come on in…we’d love to have you! It’s 10 classes for $10, y’all. So you really have NO EXCUSES! 🙂
Stay sweaty friends!
Ps – Justin Bieber, if you do want to karaoke the night away, Casey and I are available…albeit a little tone deaf. 🙂
