One Of A Kind Fitness Boutique Opening In Pittsburgh

This post is sponsored by Chelsea Collective and Vocal Point. All opinions are my own.

Calling all fit girls in the Southwestern Pennsylvania area!

A one of a kind fitness boutique for women is opening in Pittsburgh this weekend and I was lucky enough to have a sneak peek inside before the grand opening!

Chelsea Collective is a brand of Dick’s Sporting Goods that focuses on helping women find comfortable and fashionable attire for the gym and everywhere in between! It currently has just two locations and of them is opening at Ross Park Mall on Sunday!

Chelsea Collective carries all of the must have fitness apparel and accessories from brands like Nike, Spiritual Gangster and Calia by Carrie Underwood, all in one convenient and friendly atmosphere.

The store layout has a clean feel which makes it really easy to navigate through and it’s organized by the different brands. There is also an entire section just for sports bras and another just for footwear.

Plus, there is a treadmill in the dressing room so you can really test out the gear and make sure it will be the perfect fit for when you hit the gym!

On top of that, the store also features a restroom, couches and charging stations for your cell phone.

Did I mention this store is designed for women? 

There wasn’t an item in the store that I wouldn’t love to have in my closet and I was a especially fond of the specialty brands that are harder to come by like Lorna Jane, which is based out of Australia.

I was lucky enough to go home with a bag of goodies which included a Nike gym bag, must have fitness essentials and a gift card for the store that I’m looking forward to going shopping with soon!

My customized Swag Bag included a Nike gym bag, Nike headbands, a Purivida bracelet, a Zobha water bottle and a Chelsea Collective towel and gift card for the store.

If you love working out and looking stylish while doing it, then Chelsea Collective is the store for you!

Snack On This Anti-Cancer Superfood

10464067_712785955447364_2376698045276714127_n

 

Choose healthy snacks while you are lounging by the pool or on the beach this summer! I love crunchy salty foods so instead of grabbing a bag of chips I like to snack on nuts.
Nuts like cashews are a great healthy snack that will keep you full for a while and they have great health benefits as well.

Did you know cashews are considered an ANTI-CANCER SUPER FOOD?? These nuts contain proanthocyanidins, a class of flavanols that actually starve tumors and prevent cancer cells from dividing. In some studies, it’s been shown that eating 12 cashews a day can reduce your colon cancer risk.

Focus On Health – Not On Weight

10500301_706335369425756_5112565838748937473_n (1)

 

>>>FOCUS ON HEALTH — NOT ON WEIGHT<<<

Forget about the number on a scale. YOU are worth more than a number! Just worry about being healthy and I don’t mean skinny by that, I mean fit!

It all starts on the inside, remember that what you put into your body affects how your body looks and feels. 
Train dirty, eat clean, have fun!

Workout Wednesday: Beach Special

beach workout wednesday

I went to Florida this weekend for an Always A Home Game trip and had an amazing time traveling to about 20 different Steelers bars across the state. At these bars I also ate a lot of food — unhealthy food. So, when Monday came around and we just happened to stay right on a beach I made sure I woke up extra early to get a workout in before we started another day of traveling! I was lucky enough to have a beach right outside my door but if you are traveling and looking for a simple on the road workout, this could definitely be done in a hotel room as well!

5 rounds of: 

30 push ups
40 sit ups
50 squats

rest 1 minute after each round

Keep track of your time so you have something to shoot for next time you do it.

I finished in 26 minutes. A word of advice, definitely lay down a towel for the sit ups or even better a yoga mat.

The view was so beautiful that it seemed to make the workout feel a little bit easier. And the 60 degree weather increase from Pennsylvania to Florida wasn’t too bad either!

Try this out next time you are on the road or do it from home and let me know what you think!

And as a bonus here is some of the work I did on this trip, this is the video that played on the jumbotron at the Steelers game.

Happy Workout Wednesday!
