I’m always keeping my eye out for fun events in Los Angeles, so when I received an invitation to celebrate the grand opening of the Reebok FitHub in Studio City (with a yoga class and breakfast!) I jumped at the chance.
The back story: Reebok has been opening a lot of FitHubs lately, where they not only sell gear but host fitness classes and offer a sense of community. I love the idea of having a local place to meet like-minded people AND get some functional workout gear. They’re committed to helping consumers fulfill their potential and be “fit for life.” Awesome.
So, last Tuesday I headed over to Studio City and got there early enough to walk around and explore the town. I loved the quaint little neighborhoods right behind the Reebok store. I would love to come back and run here!
Reebok had kindly sent me some shoes to try out, so I wore them around as I was exploring and LOVED them. They’re super comfy and light – they only weigh 5 ounces! We were told the shoe is “crafted borrowing the materials and soft molding process used to create lingerie.” Whatttt?! So crazy. But I love it. I also appreciate that they look cute with regular clothes and workout clothes.
Anyway, after a brief welcome, yogi Tara Stiles began teaching class. It was about 30 minutes long and included a few inversions, which I love working on. I got into headstand and felt like a badass. (It’s the little things, people.) Tara was giggly and fun and her energy was uplifting!
Before I left I chatted with Tara about her new book, which is full of recipes, yoga poses and tips for healthy living. Somehow I started blabbering on about how I used to start stuff on fire while cooking fairly often. Normal.
ANYWAY. The clothes. My favorite part. In the past, Reebok never really came to mind when looking for yoga clothes, but I’m loving their new patterns. They’re soft, comfortable and the waist on the pants is high so they don’t slip.
I love love love that the tanks offer room to breathe. Just as much as I hate pants with a low waist, I hate when tank tops are too short. They also have a sports bra with the cloud print. I should totally wear all three pieces together like a little matchy-80s jogging suit. (No I shouldn’t.)
All in all, I’m excited that I’ve been introduced to some fun workout gear and a new place to visit for workouts.
Follow Reebok for the latest and greatest in fitness!
