The PRIM Guide to Fall Fitness
Posted on 28 August 2017
As counterintuitive as it may seem, now that summer is winding down, we are starting to step up our workout routines. Normally, it’s anticipating the start of “swimsuit season” that has us hitting the gym, while getting ready for the holidays is when we stop taking care of ourselves. The cold weather as well as the stress of the season sets in, and our focus inevitably turns toward giving to everyone else.
But this year, I’m approaching holidays differently. I’m renewing my commitment to get that “beach body” starting now rather than next year, weeks before summer. But it goes much deeper than achieving that coveted six pack: I’m putting my self-care and wellness first to preserve my energy, so that I don’t burn out and can give more whole-heartedly (aka resentment-free) to others.
Fortunately, we have many fun exercise options in both Pleasanton and Los Gatos to help us follow through with our healthy intentions. Here are some of our favorite fitness classes to keep us on track and on our toes by switching up our workout routine every week:
- SoulCycle: Just a few doors down from our Los Gatos location, we love to ride
- Club Pilates: Don’t underestimate this form of exercise as not vigorous enough; these classes, held just a few miles from our P-town storefront, are full-body workouts and anything but easy.
- Dailey Method: Similarly, we turn to Los Gatos’ Dailey Method for a combination of Pilates, yoga, and ballet barre training.
- Pure Barre: We also enjoy this barre-based routine that boasts a high-intensity, low-impact, total body workout.
- YogaSource: When we’re ready to restore our bodies, we head to this Los Gatos-based studio, which offers a range of traditional and modern yoga classes.
And to help us stay motivated, we have our NEW activewear category, featuring Teeki’s colorful, eco-conscious separates; For Better Not Worse’s socially-conscious, slogan basics for before and after the gym; and of course our S’Well bottles in a number of playful prints. We’re also thrilled to introduce All Fenix’s stylish workout staples, including printed leggings and matching sports bras, you’ll want to stay in all day long.
The Australian brand utilizes advanced technology that offers compression-like qualities to enhance performance. For instance, the sweat-resistant fabric features a 4-way stretch and extra coverage, so that leggings are never see-through. We especially love how flattering the high-waist silhouette looks on—not to mention how it stays put, so you'll never have to pull them up. They are also extremely breathable (it feels like you have nothing on), making them great for circulation and even traveling. You can find us in them even when we’re not working out!
We love them so much, we're giving you the chance to WIN A FREE PAIR! Visit us this Thursday for a special all-day shopping event for moms to treat themselves, now that the kiddos are back in school. Enjoy 15% OFF storewide, and receive a raffle ticket for every $100 spent. The grand prize will be a basket of mommy must-haves, including the luxurious leggings. Hope to see you there!
