Our flagship store was transformed into a workout studio, and it was an invigorating whole-body experience when Bryna Carracino, founder of B Fit Los Angeles, led our enthusiastic group through a challenging round of high-intensity metabolic circuit sets on February 8.
It was the first time we’d ever hosted a fitness event at our flagship store, and we’re grateful that Bryna volunteered to make our first event an unforgettable experience. “I started doing these events for people to become more aware of what it really means to live a healthy lifestyle,” Bryna told us. “I think a lot of people don’t actually understand what it is to really workout. They just go through the motions. So when we offer these events, people realize they’re supposed to sweat, to feel challenged, and to feel uncomfortable.”
And that’s exactly what they did!
First, Bryna encouraged everyone to set an intention for their workout, and to choose a short mantra to repeat throughout the session: “I choose to be ______________________.”
And she offered this powerful reminder, “This is a moving meditation. Stay in the present moment and stay connected to your breath.” Then it was time to get started. Everybody got warmed up doing downward dog to plank and back – 100 times!
Then things got REALLY intense.
Bryna led the group through 3 super sets of 2 exercises back-to-back.
Super Set 1:
Alternating Intervals – Jumping Jacks + Side Plank with Downward Dog (5 minutes, no stopping).
Super Set 2:
Alternating Intervals – Mountain Climbers + Bridge (5 minutes, no stopping).
Super Set 3:
Alternating Intervals – Squat Thrusters + Warrior 3 (5 minutes, no stopping).
After this non-stop, high-intensity interval training, everyone was breathing hard, sipping water and giving each other high-fives. They were sweating and red-faced and having a blast! Our flagship store was buzzing with a real sense of accomplishment.
Participants also got to enjoy some special flagship store perks: express services, free YouthCam skin analysis and special offers on products. Thanks to everyone who participated. We can’t wait to do it again!
