It’d been a few days since the POP Pilates London Meetup and I’m still so excited that I got to meet all of you and work out with you in person!!! It was such a surreal experience for me. Let’s begin the photostory!
So as I walked out of the Regent’s Park station tube, I was hoping that maybe some people would show up. It had started to rain and we were supposed to do it in the park so I had a feeling that many of you guys would opt out. But much to my surprise…I saw a ton of girls holding yoga mats and was like….HOLY SHIZZERNICKLES!
You all were so sweet in greeting me!!!
Luckily my fitness blogger friend Ify from GetFizzycal.com secured a space for us at the University of London. I met with Ify a few days prior to the meetup for the first time (courtesy of POPster Justyna) and he did a video interview with me that should be pretty cool! I don’t really have a video kinda just talking about who I am and where I came from – I think it should be very good for the About Me section! I also talk a lot about the Blogilates Community and how much I love you guys so that’s why he had his camera man Luke there to get footage of y’all! So yeah, you’re gonna be a few videos guys!
Look how we FILLED UP the space! I’m loving the colors of the mats. Beautiful!!!
Mini leg circles. UH OHHHH.
A sea of people doing Candle Stick Dippers? My dream came true.
You know, I was so confident and rockin’ it on my Pilates stage – thought I had a perfect day – only to realize when I came home several hours later that my shirt was on inside out. For. Every. Single. Picture. We. Took. Thanks guys for telling me.
Well, I had no idea it was on inside out, so whatevs! We had fun and it was sooooo perfect to end the workout with Call Me Maybe Squats!!!! I did em extra hard this time.
The hour went by soooo fast and you all were so grateful. Your applause at the end made me all nervous and shy and I had to cover my face. Really, I wouldn’t be able to keep making YouTube vids and blogging if you guys didn’t do the workouts or care about what I’m writing about. So THANK YOU for everything.
What a BRILLIANT lot of POPsters!!! You were all fun an vocal.
Afterwards I spent time taking pics (with my shirt on inside out) with everyone and signing yoga mats! Thank goodness I had my sharpie with me! I had never signed a mat before so I think this is something I need to work on…’twas quite difficult!
A lot of you guys said you felt like it was surreal seeing me in real life, but let me tell you, being with all of you was a dream come true.
I’ll try to compile a behind the scenes vlog for you guys. You can see the rest of the pictures on facebook here and you can also watch the entire meetup below. It was a weird beginning. Sorry.
Alrighty, off to film and edit some more! Being in London has been fun and I’ve never felt more like a YouTuber than I do now! On btw, yes I met Luke and Ingrid and we are hoping to collab on something for you guys! Luke says I can use his songs in my workouts (YAYYYYY!!!) and I am all about supporting other ‘tubers all the way. Plus Britney, Gaga, J-Lo, and Bruno Mars love taking my workouts down for copyright infringement. Any other YouTube artists you think would be fab for POP Pilates? Let me know in the comments!
K love you all,
