Really sad about this, but here’s a negative review for you. @bombshellsportswear
I purchased these $70 leggings a month ago. March 11th to be exact. Tonight I wore them for the second time and noticed a string hanging from the mesh that runs along the side of the leggings. As I looked further into where it was coming from, I noticed this huge snag the runs from side to side. I immediately emailed @bombshellsportswear
customer service since they are literally brand new. I haven’t even washed them yet, because the first time I only wore them for upper body and didn’t sweat in them. So I know that I wasn’t the cause of the tear. They emailed me back saying that their manufacturer guarantee is only 14 DAYS. For $70 leggings!!! I know that it was my choice to purchase leggings that cost that much, but I have heard great things about them. Plus I spend 6 days a week in the gym, and gym clothes are the only thing that I ever buy for myself. I ALSO already own a pair of their sock leggings that cost $86. I haven’t had any issues whatsoever with those. Anyways, I’m very dissatisfied that they won’t even let me exchange these, seeing that it’s past the “14 days” mark. I definitely will not be purchasing anything else from this website. I’ll stick with @gymshark
because I know the quality is there. #bombshellsportswear #bombshellleggings #bombshellbabe #leggings #review #gymaddict #hasgtags #dontwasteyourmoney #bombshellreview #sosad #proseamlessleggings #gymwear #gymreviews #bombshellleggingsreview
No matter if you hit the gym super hard today, or not. Ate exactly as planned, or not. Felt on top of the world at work, or not. The sun will rise tomorrow and you get another chance! .
I snuck away to Nashville a few weeks ago and enjoyed exploring, trying restaurants (sweet potatoe pancakes + breakfast brät anyone?? 🤤), and got my butt handed to me at a killer gym @shedgroupfitness
💣 That weekend was time to let the days unfold and show me what we were going to do, not the other way around. .
The second video is something we did at SHED that I wanted to share. If you don’t have #battleropes
, use a resistance band like video 3.
|| Shoulder circuit ||.
15 thrusters (two dumbbells)
20 lunges (same weight)
25 weighted jump jax holding dumbbell horizontally one either side
30 sit ups
35 seconds (ea. side) on plank battle rope or band pull *videos
4 ROUNDS 👏🏼 great ready to burn 👏🏼
I want to be real for a minute. I am so proud of BHM people for stepping out to fill gaps in our City, to make it everything it is today and everything it will grow to be. #whynotus #bhm
filled a wide gap with @nexusfitnessbhm
! A dual-sided gym with CrossFit and HIIT that *challenged* my conditioning. 👇🏼👇🏼 Not gonna lie, I wanted to stop and “tie my shoe” a time or two. More than once I thought, “okay, only :30 sprint, you can do it.” Yes it was tough, but the alternative is an easy workout and last time I checked, that yielded 0 results! .
CHECK THEM OUT💯
BEEN A MINUTE. I’ve been stockpiling all the workouts, waiting for a picture to pair them with and, well, I finally just put the self timer on and took a dang picture. #reallife #wareagle

🖤 We just love reading reviews from our members! 🖤⠀
"I’m that person that struggled taking that first step back into a gym after a long bout of inactivity. Joining BMFT has been the absolute best experience that I could’ve hoped for. I’m going on my 4th month as a member of the “FitFam.” I’m far from “Fit” but part of the “Fam” and have made great strides and am down almost 30# and over 10% body fat thanks to the daily inspiration I get from the trainers and other members and a whole lot of sweat. The trainers have modifications for every exercise that works with any fitness level. That’s where I started and have gradually gotten a little better. The other members are so welcoming and helpful that it has made the whole experience so great. Kate and Steve, the owners, are incredible as trainers, motivators, teachers and now friends. Sebastian works so hard to make sure we are using proper technique, using the proper weight and pushing for that extra rep in his pleasant way of guiding us. Dom is always smiling and keeps things light while giving us a good push as well. I can’t say enough about the change Beyond Measure has made in my life. My body hasn’t felt this good and my energy level hasn’t been this high in years. I would give 100 stars if I could. Thank you all!"
Training legs is my favorite thing to do in the gym. Training arms... meh, not so much. Necessary evils, amiright? Today I’m training both arms and legs because it’s like bribing your kid with dessert (legs) if they eat all their vegetables (arms) 🥦 —> 🍩.

🚲 ⭐️🚲⭐️🚲⭐️ Review time!!
I’ve been a little lazy with my reviews lately, but I’m so excited for this one! @flywheelsports
turned this spin-hating human into a cycle lover! (At least indoors 😂). So far I’ve visited 3 of the 🔟 studios in NYC, and I have yet to be disappointed. 💥💥💥
Overview: My competitive soul absolutely adores these spin classes. My eyes lit up when I found out there was an option to have your name (or code name 😉) listed on the Torque Board during class, showing how you stack up against the rest of your classmates. But don’t be put off by this if you’re not into that! Your name/bike only appears on the board if you want it to. Otherwise, you can just enjoy a really fun spin class competition-free. Either way you will get a great workout!
Coaches: The coaches have all been upbeat and motivating. They focus on proper form which I love. Their music is awesome, which is the most important part of a spin class, right?
Gym experience: Most importantly, all the staff I’ve interacted with are super nice and helpful. The gyms are clean. Some are definitely more crowded than others (midtown east was the most crowded). The bathrooms are nice, as well as the showers. Lockers are in common areas. (Note: there are no big fancy locker rooms. The upper east side location has their showers on the floor below.)
Workout: spin is spin, but the fact that they make it a competition can push you further than you thought you could go. It’s that extra boost you need on days you’re just not feelin it. Its definitely your cardio day. You’re not going to get much strength training here, unless you try one of their floor classes. (That’s right, it’s not just spin here!) Overall review: 4.5 ⭐️s

What workout is best for you?
This can be a really hard question to answer.
The good news is it can be done. Caroline and I really believe that finding the best workout for YOU comes down to asking yourself just 2 questions.
1. What type of Exercise do I enjoy?
2. What are my fitness/health goals?
When you realize what kind of movement/ exercise you find most enjoyable and combine that with the goals you want to achieve you can have a better understanding of what to look for in a class or fitness regimen.
We are here to give you guys as much information as possible about tons of different studios and health trends so that after answering those 2 simple questions you can find the right solution for you.
For example: (adrienne here)
What I love in a workout: I grew up dancing. For me the exercise I enjoy the most includes rhythmic movements and stretches.
My fitness goal: stay lean and tone my body, I am not looking to add a lot of muscle or or lose any weight. I workout to feel good and tone up.
So it makes complete sense why I love workouts like Barre, yoga, and spin class the most.
Your goal might be training for a marathon, losing weight, gaining weight, improving your cardio or just your overall health. Whatever it may be the ultimate key to reaching your goals is finding an effective workout that combines your goals, with being enjoyable for you. If you are not having fun than you won’t be motivated to get up for that early morning class and will inevitably give up your routine. Snap out of that cycle! We are here to help give you a better understanding of tons of different workouts so you can quickly find what works the very best for you.
Squat PB! I finally stopped wearing mittens on my knees! (SBD sleeves arrived!)
It’s that time of year. The one where you panic trying to figure out what to get everyone on your list for Christmas. 🎁🎄
We know that feeling all too well.
For me I especially struggle to find gifts for guys.
Sooooo to help you (and myself) out I created a little gift guide of 12 gender neutral gifts at 12 different price points so no matter who you’re shopping for or what your budget may be, you can find them something they will love. ❤️ ~
Check it out and let us know what are your go to gifts for family and friends!!! ❤️FW
abandoned me for the day 😩 sad I know. But good news is I used my alone time to pick a studio I’ve been dying to try before she drags me to F45 tomorrow.... Today I made sure to get my stretch in while checking out Studio 6 in Preston Hollow.
This full body workout incorporates tons of equipment along with the reformer machine throughout 50 min. It had my arms and abs on 🔥. Check out what I loved and what was not so great about Studio six in my full review! Link up in bio now ✨
One of my BEST purchases in 2018 was a good solid ✨foam roller✨
I invested in one with lots of ridges to help release lactic acid (muscle soreness) pre and post workout and I’m sooo glad I did! 😍
Every night while I watch a TV show or scroll through my phone, I spend about 15 min with this baby. It’s helped not only with my recovery but also my back pain! WIN! WIN! 🎁They make great gifts for the holidays ( or for yourself 😉) -
HONESTLY- if you dont foam roll then WYD?! 🤔
Get one for you, your mom, your boyfriend, your dog. Everyone needs one. -
Mine is from @lululemon
and is still available for $58 but you can pick them up at target for as little as $20!
P.S. We’ll be talking other great holiday gifts later this week so stay tuned 😘😘 FW
It’s long awaited, for those of you that know me IRL, you know I was a full on @soulcycle
JUNKIE for the longest time. 🤤
Now I’ve temporarily given up my addiction to try out other places, but I still believe in the MAGIC🔮 that is Soul Cycle. I know I sound pathetic and I don’t even care. This place has my ❤️ the way nothing else but ice cream and pure barre does. I wrote a whole blog explaining why I think soul cycle stands out in the field; but also why the crazy price tag keeps me from going. If you’ve ever thought about trying it or you just want to know the tea on the place they call a cult... check it out! Link in bio 😉 -
Have you tried Soul cycle?!
After taking some time off for thanksgiving we got back to working out this week and we’re SOOO sore. So yesterday I (adrienne) decided it was time @carolineofe
face her fears and freeze her lil bum off. In an effort to help a sister out, We headed to @cryo1one
to try cryotherapy and although Caroline hated me in the moment she woke up feeling so refreshed this morning I think I’ve converted her! If you’ve ever been curious to try cryotherapy and see what all the hype is about check out the link in our bio!
New blog post 🌈 this week I share my favourite fitness classes 💪🏼 here I am looking a little shiny after a class at @moveyourframe
HAPPY THANKSGIVING 🍁🦃🍽 from Fitnesswitnessed ❤️
The holidays are a super fun but if you’ve got some serious health goals it can feel so derailing. This week @carolineofe
Is off with her husbands’ family so @stopandsmellthelilyrose
and I are breaking down our tips for staying healthy-ish during the holiday season.
1. Enjoy the holiday dishes guilt free but be aware so you don’t over eat. Don’t starve yourself until dinner. Rather eat a hearty breakfast and snacks until dinner so you don’t gorge yourself and feel awful after.
2. Go on a walk post heavy meals and invite a family member you’ve been wanting to catch up with to go with you! It will make you feel good, and might even get you out of helping with the dishes ( just don’t tell mom) 🤫
3. Pack your own healthy snacks! Sometimes where your visiting might not have any health options, and it makes me not feel good when I eat junk for days on end. Enjoy what you want to, but don’t feel pressured to eat everything. Supplement some of your own snacks, so you can feel good while you enjoy family!
You guys, lets be real, packing sucks, traveling in general is not anything to get excited about. While we love our destinations getting there is always such a pain, and worse, really expensive. We’ve come up with a few tricks over the years that help to make it bearable. What we’ve learned in a nut shell? Pretend your a boy scout and BE PREPARED. It always makes taking it on the road, so much more fun. Link in bio for our top tips on how to prep for travel so the only thing you have to worry about this thanksgiving is grandma asking if you have a boyfriend yet.
Looking to burn a TON of calories before that Turkey 🦃 Day feast? @orangetheory
has got you covered! Adrienne and I had a blast, learned a lot about our heart rates, and left pooped(in a good way💩). This technology based workout is so cool, and their science backed workouts will keep you burning calories long after you leave. 🙌🏻💪🏻 They are even offering classes early in the morning on Thanksgiving Day so you can get a last minute burn in before the food comma 😉 go tap that link for the full review and comment below what your favorite version of cardio is⬇️⬇️⬇️
Life over the last month for me (@adriennegrey
) has been a little unusual. My new normal has been all about chillin in my pajamas and staying in. One month ago after going to the hospital I was diagnosed with Guillain Barre an auto immune disease that attacked my nerve system, causing numbness, weakness, and tingling throughout my body. Now in recovery I spend the majority of my time sleeping and trying my best to stay warm to avoid losing feeling in my legs. 😨😴 I wrote a blog post sharing my experience and what life is like now! Link is up in the bio so go check it out if you wanna know the whole story and what has been going on since.

💥 It’s Friday 💥 One thing we love as much as every other girl is our @lululemon.
Call us basic, but this stuff has filled up every birthday and Christmas list for YEARS. ❤️ Its over those many years and through many pairs of leggings, that we’ve learned which pieces we can trust to hold off the stink no matter how much we sweat. What performs and what doesn’t. Which pieces hold the test of time despite the fact that we’ve chunked them in the washer (and dryer 🙊 oops) a few too many times. We put together an outfit featuring 3 of our absolute MUST HAVES.
For us it’s all about the versatility and durability of pieces. ⬇️

This morning we hopped on the bike @theridehouse
🚲 to check out their 45 min rhythmic spin class and we were not disappointed 😍 This place is super cute, has a second studio for TRX class and foam rolling +stretching. The concert like spin studio helped to energize the room while we tapped it back in a Throwback theme ride. @ridewithkarla

Gym review: #GymCypressTexas
• Uspa certified
• okay ish hours for a day pass, 10$
• friendly staff
• clean equipment
• Tons of cardio / other machines
• No deadlift bar, I'm not sure how you can be uspa certified without a tdb, weird flex but okay
• No squat racks, beside a some Olympic racks.
• No comp benches.
• Only a handful of plates, counted less than twenty 45s.
• No deadlift jack
• Not sure what kind of regular barbells they have, but they were off brand with 0 knurling, felt stiff ish but some slack.
• Not really ideal to deadlift here with cracks so close together, so it was very difficult to press off the floor.
Overall ~ I wasnt entirely impressed, maybe if you're into body building, crossfit or just regular gym going would I reccomend this facility, especially with it being Uspa certified, disappointed to say the least. I could gripe about a bit more, but,
Tldr: if you're a powerlifter intermediate+
I'd say find another place to train.
We’ve got a new review for you guys and this one is special 😍🎉 @adrienne_grey
actually TEACHES this class! She’s spilling everything you need to know about @pure_barre
the original barre class!!!! A year and a half ago I fell in love with Pure Barre it’s all about little ranges of motion that pack a BIG punch. The combo of building lean toned muscle and flexibility training leaves you with some AWESOME results! It’s musically driven and all about that core (our fav)! We’ve got the full review with everything you need to know about the studio experience, what to wear, and pricing options all on the blog now! Go check it out 👏🏼😍 link in bio!
It’s fall y’all! 🍂🍁With the cooler darker weather here, we just want to stay in, watch movies, and eat! 😋😛 In an attempt to get moving, rather than heading straight to cardio we decided to slow things down and hit up @corepoweryoga
for a deep stretch that alleviated all of our soreness! We went to a beginner vinyasa flow and by the end felt like whole new girlies! 💁🏼♀️Our class and instructor were super warm and inviting and the facilities were A+! 😍Wearing our fav @kora.fitness
tops we felt like super hero’s diving into downward dog for this hour long sweat sesh! With a ton of class’s to chose from, CPY offers everything from classic yoga to cardio/burn🔥 classes! If your looking for a yoga studio to call home @corepoweryoga
is a place you HAVE to check out! For the full review and more pics of the adorable studio check out our full blog post! Link in bio 😘
3 months of hardly any workouts! Since I moved it’s been so busy plus I signed up for Orange Theory and their opening was delayed a couple months. It feels really great to be back working out. It’s different than what I was use to a F45, but has some aspects that are similar. The one thing that is the same is that it’s a class so you feel more motivated to do the work. If I go to the gym on my own, I don’t push myself. I’m a bit competitive so I like at least trying to keep up with others when they are working out. The differences between the two are F45 has a lot more weights and you can go much heavier if you want. They also have a big variety of exercises in short high intensity intervals that push you to your limit in 45mins. Orange Theory is about 30min of cardio on a treadmill that is done in intervals. Then 30 mins of weights and the rowers. I was definitely apprehensive about the treadmill as I hate straight running like that. But so far i think the way they do the intervals has kept it interesting. Plus I see it as a challenge for myself to learn to run for longer periods. So honestly I miss F45 but I’m willing to try Orange Theory and try learning to do something I’m not good at. But so far I’m loving feeling that after workout high! It’s been too long!!
