My Lorna Jane Holiday Wish List

As y’all know, I teach group exercise classes almost on a daily basis. This gives me a great excuse to wear workout clothes basically 24/7, and I’m not complaining one bit about it! There’s so many cute looks and styles out there these days that are both comfortable and stylish that it’s no wonder I choose to stay in my workout clothes all day…even after I get sweaty teaching classes.

I was so excited to try out a couple of Lorna Jane pieces recently as I’ve been eyeing their line for awhile now. They have some of the most unique and cutest stuff out there! I think one of my favorite things about Lorna Jane is their fashion-forward style. It’s awesome gym apparel, but you can wear it out and about to run errands just as well.

I thought my expectations were fairly high before I received my Lorna Jane outfit, but both the tank and the tights blew my expectations out of the water. The tank is a beautiful pink color that is super flattering, especially for someone like me with a small bust. It has removable pads to help lift and shape you a bit if you need help in that area. ;) Otherwise you can just remove them!

I also LOVED the back detail of this top – very unique and a great way to show some skin while still maintaining some modesty.

And these tights… Can I live in them please?! They hug me perfectly in all the right places, they are thick and quality fabric, and talk about being comfortable!

Naturally I decided to shop around the Lorna Jane website a bit to see what other pieces stuck out to me. Just to warn you, it’s kind of difficult not to love everything.

Here are a few Lorna Jane items I’m adding to my holiday wish list this year:

Biometric F/L Tight

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been all about the patterned workout tights and capris this year. They add such an element of “fun” to your outfits and workouts! I especially love that these Biometric Tights have a “wet look” print to make them extra unique. A few other perks that stand out to me about these is that they’re shrink and fade resistant, wick moisture, and are quick drying and breathable.

Cecile Excel Tank

I thought this tank was such a pretty color! I also love the flattering design of the front and back. It seems like it’d be a pretty versatile tank that I could wear for almost any kind of workout which is another huge plus to me.

Monroe Hoodie

A girl can never have enough pink! I love the striped pink and white pattern on this hoodie along with the cute button details at the top. I have a feeling this would be a piece I’d be wearing constantly this winter. I could wear it with jeans or leggings as a casual outfit or wear it over my workout clothes to get me to and from the gym.

Mix Up Run Short

We all know I haven’t been into running much lately (and if you didn’t know, well, now you do), but I still kept coming back to these cute run shorts. I’m all about the striped pattern, and I love the design and style too. The wide elastic waistband and small back pocket also appeals to me.

2015 Move Nourish Believe Diary

I was actually sent this diary to check out for myself, but I had to add this one to my list because it’s something I think every girl should own for the upcoming new year.

I’m SO excited to start using this come January 1st. My Type A planner self gets all sorts of giddy with this kind of thing.

This is easily one of the best planners I’ve ever seen.

A few of my favorite things about it…

…it has a place for you to make a vision board to help you accomplish your goals.

…it has plenty of space to write various activities and reminders for each day. I write EVERYthing down, so I especially love this.

…it has lots of healthy and delicious recipes and meal/snack ideas scattered throughout the planner to encourage us to feel our best.

There’s so many other great things included as well, like uplifting quotes, health challenges, and other life tips to help us be the best versions of ourselves.

Not only do I love Lorna Jane’s adorable workout attire, but I am also such a fan of the positive message they portray to women. They are all about getting the most out of life, feeling positive and fulfilled, and being your best self. Lorna Jane has a great website called Move Nourish Believe that includes some great articles to help encourage you to live your life to the fullest.

A couple articles from the site that caught my eye that also may interest you:

Lorna Jane has stores in CA, WA, OR, AZ (whoop!), TX, NV, and is coming to the East Coast in 2015. You can find your closest store HERE or get to shopping right away on LornaJane.com.

You can check out Lorna Jane on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram.

My Total Body Conditioning Class + A Workout

You guys are the best! Thanks so much for your sweet texts, tweets, and comments yesterday. At least you got a yummy recipe out of it, right? Winking smile

Thankfully, yesterday was a MUCH better today. Actually, it was a really good day. Take that Monday!

Something I haven’t talked a whole about here on the blog is my Total Body Conditioning (TBC) class I teach every Wednesday morning. I compare it to a bootcamp class because that’s essentially what it is – a mix of strength, cardio, and core typically done in a circuit format. I know I give Les Mills (specifically BodyPump) a lot of attention because to be totally honest, it’s my favorite! My TBC class is still super fun though. I like that it’s a freestyle class so I can have fun prepping for it with my own fitness knowledge and experience.

My TBC class is totally different than BodyPump. The major differences being: 1) it’s a freestyle class that I plan; 2) it’s not choreographed or done “on beat”; 3) it’s typically done in a circuit style format; 4) I don’t do the entire workout with my class; 5) it’s a mix of strength training and cardio.

Here’s the workout I have planned for today’s class:

Here are how-to links for the individual exercises:

While it’s totally fun, I feel like I’m in a little bit of a “rut” with it lately. I’m in need of some new moves and exercises. (Our equipment in the group fitness room is limited to barbells/plates, super small dumbbells, and resistance bands.) So, I’d love to hear your feedback!

(Please answer the below questions as a group fitness participant, not an instructor.)

Which do you prefer: choreographed classes or freestyle classes?

What kind of music is your favorite to listen to while doing high intensity workouts?

In a bootcamp/circuit style class, do you prefer the instructor walking around and giving instruction/encouragement/tips OR doing the workout with you?

What are some unique exercises you’ve done lately that I can incorporate into my class?

Thanks so much for your feedback! Let me know if you try out the above workout. It’s a doozy!

Have a wonderful day!
