We hope you had a nice summer weekend! Karena and are so excited to see more and more Tone It Up meetups! It's pretty incredible. It would be too much for us to manage and schedule them ourselves, so we encourage you to create them in your area! Do you have a local fitness studio that you like? A healthy restaurant? A race coming up that you could join together? Also, a lot of you are meeting at your local lululemon classes. They have free yoga and community classes every month.
Karena and I started ToneItUp soon after we met at the gym. We're forever grateful that we were in the right place at the right time! If any of you don't know our story... we were both new to the area~ Karena was coming into the gym where I worked quite a bit and I had just moved to Manhattan Beach from Boston. I was teaching group fitness glasses and I invited her to come to class! She came to the class and we started running into each other everywhere around town! Trader Joes, the beach, coffee shops... everywhere! Now she's my best friend, the most amazing blessing in my life and my maid of honor! So as you can imagine, seeing all of you meet up with each other makes us so happy. We know how important good girlfriends are!! When we meet you girls at bootcamps and meetups we all have so much in common. We're all looking for a happy, healthy, fun lifestyle. We all have different backgrounds, stories, struggles and goals... but it brings us together and we have a common ground and that is to live positively, surrounding ourselves with supportive and inspiring women. We love all of you!!!
Karena and I want to make it easier to meetup with each other. Most of you know about your community.toneitup.com site. You can join groups in there and meet others in your area. Make sure you include your instagram name on your community profile!! You can also add what town you live in to make it easier for others to find you. We're also thinking that with your check-ins on instagram, hashtag #TIUteam AND where you're from. Ex.. #TIUsanfran or #TIUboston. Keep it simple and something people can remember TIU + city. This goes for anywhere in the world! We know there's Australia, UK and Canada groups too!
What's Tone It Up Approved? Meet at either a fitness class, yoga/spin studio, community class like lululemon or a local running group, a healthy restaurant or a race. We know it's like online dating at first arranging the time and place... but trust us, it's so worth going!!!! Karena and I are always so blown away by everyone we meet. It really is so cool :) Some of you have been making pictures on instagram with a time and local place! This is such a great idea! You can use 'repost' on instagram to spread the word. Remember to hashtag #TIUmeetup too.
See some of the recent TIU meetups featured on our instagram @ToneItUp!
Login and go to "My Profile" ~ you'll be able to add your city & state and include your Instagram name too. See below... To find TIU girls near you, use the new search tab. Make sure you add your location by editing your information too! You won't be able to see anything unless the location is updated in your profile. Haven't created a profile yet?
