Blogilates National Tour!? + POP Pilates Certification dates!
Happy Grandparent’s Day! Please give a hug and kiss to your grams and gramps for me 🙂
I was so tired after IDEA World that I did not do a recap on the blog! (So…umm…I am going to do it now!) First of all, I must say that it was amazing meeting all of you from Southern CA at the Blogilates booth and at the POP Pilates Party. So much good energy!
Y’all are seriously some of the best humans on this planet. Haha. Oh and it was incredibly cool to meet some male POPsters too! They’re a rare species but they do exist!!
Your smiles really brighten my day! Nothing can replace meeting you guys in person, seeing you glow with confidence, and getting to know you. This is what I live for!!
Even babies came, hogging them detox bottles! 😛
Billy Blanks even stopped by to do a crazy pose with me 😀
So before I show you what our booth looked like this year, I want to do a throwback to 2013. It was a 10 x 10 booth with one headless mannequin. This was my first booth ever!!
And then here is the 2014 booth! I actually designed this booth (you wouldn’t think that this is a job but it is…haha) and I made sure there was squishy wood flooring, bright lights in the background, a changing tent, and lots of pictures! Oh and matching hangers. And 2 mannequins with heads!! Such a must! This year we grew to a 20 x 10!
We even had matching shirts and reusable Blogilates bags! So legit. So legit. Thank you to my Blogilates fam for pouring their heart and soul into this event. It really was exhausting for everyone, but we made it through!
I was also asked to lead 2 talks there. It was an incredible honor to speak as an expert on social media and branding to other fitness professionals and bloggers. I love sharing my knowledge with people especially when they appreciate it and will apply it to their own lives. Much like when I give you a monthly workout plan and meal plan. I want you to use it and make some changes in your life for the better.
I also did the talk about how to turn your blog into a business leading up to Jillian Michael’s keynote. If I could sum it up in one sentence, it would be this: Stand behind what you believe in and serve people whole-heartedly with passion.
Then came Friday night at the POP Pilates Party! OMG it was so much fun! Several hundred POPsters, trainers, and fitness professionals gathered together to do a 1 hr class with me. Let’s just say everyone’s butt was sore the day after. Oops.
I also want to plan a Blogilates National Tour for 2015. Where should we go?! Please tell me where you’re from and if there’s enough interest in one location, I will be there!!!
Oh and I also want to show you something cool. Look! It’s me on a door!!! Hahaha. I’ve never seen myself like this before 😛
I also taught some classes in celebration of the launch of the POP Pilates Certification program! Woot woot! Which by the way…we finally have dates for!
The dates and locations of the trainings are:
Please go sign up! I will personally be leading these sessions. You will learn how to not only be a fitness instructor, but a SUCCESSFUL fitness instructor. You will learn how to be confident in front of a crowd and how to rock your class’s core. Trust me, it is THE MOST rewarding job I’ve ever had. Your job is to inspire!!
Plus, you get to make money while you work out. And most gyms will most likely give you a free gym membership too. I mean – obviously those are not the important things, but they are very nice perks 🙂
Ok well hopefully I will see you guys soon at one of these trainings! Or next year at the Blogilates National Tour! Please comment below and let me know where we should plan to visit!!
