Yesterday evening at around 6.30pm I hopped into a very fancy car to be whisked away to a tres exclusive event. The driver was a wee bit bemused as he looked around to see me wearing jersey shorts, an over sized t-shirt, sports bra and sneakers but was still polite enough to ask if I was headed to a premiere. Haha.
Nope. I was headed to Pop Physique in Silverlake, courtesy of Degree deodorant, to check out their new program and try my hand at the latest fitness craze 'Zumba' with one of the country's top Zumba instructors.
The Zumba was intense, I felt utterly uncoordinated, totally lacking in rhythm and terribly unfit BUT I had a total blast. I've never laughed or wiggled my butt more. Zumba is a workout - a mix of salsa and pretty high impact cardio (lots of core work!) let's be honest, you're going to sweat, but it's the FUNNEST workout ever. I'm going to be checking out my local class and utilising the DVD in my giftbag! (for the record..the giftbag was Marc Jacobs...nice!)
The main reason Degree got us all together was to share their fantastic new workout tool - Motion Miles in conjunction with their new Motion Sense deodorant (haven't tried it yet - so will let you know!) With Motion Miles you can log your workouts, answer trivia questions and check in places all to gain miles. You can redeem miles to be entered to win prizes, from instant win prizes like major giftcards to Sephora, Piperlime, Amazon, Gap and Zumba classes, dvd's and other workout gear. to weekly sweepstakes including shopping trips, nights on the town, Manolo Blahniks (!) to their grand prizes - a trip to Hawaii, a trip to the Alps and a trip to Costa Rica!
You can sign up here on their Facebook page.
All pretty major. All free to enter - you just have to get moving! To give you a jump start - if you sign up and use this VIP code: GetMoving053 you get a bonus 5 miles! Score. With 5 miles you can enter the weekly sweepstakes or enter the instant win (spin the wheel...it's kind of addictive) twice!
In terms of full disclosure - the more of you that enter and use my special code - the bigger chance I have of winning a weekend in Sedona...and I really need a weekend in Sedona. Bad.
Anyway - so in the spirit of Gym Bunny, getting fit, earning prizes and sending me to Sedona. SIGN UP! (and if anyone wants to go Zumba with me..let me know!
