We also have a work-with-what-you-have attitude when it comes to almost anything. That’s why we’re giving you the low-down on our DIY Rocker Tees.

Summer Bucket List: 5 Favorite Outdoor Activities

Check out our Top 5 Favorite Outdoor ActivitiesSummer is in FULL FORCE and we are taking every. single. opportunity we have to hang out in the great outdoors! It seems like summer passes us by in the blink of an eye (yes! even in CA!) so we check off out Summer Bucket List to make sure we’re outside and getting our Vitamin D when we aren’t traveling all over the place meeting our incredible POUND Posse!

We’re really lucky to live in LA where there are a TON of public, summer activities — but most of our favorite activities happen in every city during the warm months! A lot of times, these kinds of events are posted in your local coffee shop, on a community bulletin board, or in the local newspaper. Do some research and find your city’s special events!

Summer Bucket List: Top 5 Outdoor Activities

1. Picnic in the Park:

You can have a picnic A-N-Y-W-H-E-R-E! We love cooking up a colorful lunch, putting it in a basket, grabbing a mexican blanket, and finding a new patch of green grass to just go chill! Packing a picnic is a great break during a long hike (preferably at the waterfall), at the beach, or just at your local park! Here are some easy recipes to pack up and share: Spring Salad in a jar, veggies and homemade hummus, and some cool fruit-cubes to jazz up your H20!

2. Free Music Festivals

Every Thursday night, Santa Monica puts on free show on the pier. We love checking out the new bands and listening to good music as we watch the sun set. Hop online to find free concerts in your city and go check them out! Bring some old friends and meet some new ones.

3. Movies In The Park

Screen Shot 2015-07-17 at 10.46.50 AM

Summer in LA is incomplete without movies in the park! Whether they’re screened at a public park, a school, or the cemetery (it’s not as creepy as it sounds), time stops when you’re enjoying a movie outdoors with 400 of your friends and neighbors (our favorite is Christmas in July when they screen Elf in the park and everyone comes with Santa Hats!) Search for free movie screenings around town or hold one of your own! All you need is a big white wall, a projector, and a warm blanket!

4. Farmer’s Markets

Swiss Chard at the Farmer's Market!

If you can’t already tell by how much we rave about them, Farmer’s Markets are one of our favorite activities year round. Spending a Saturday or Sunday morning waking up early, picking your fresh seasonal produce for the week, meeting and making friends with local farmers, and trying all the samples we leisurely stroll by each booth is (believe it or not) one of the most relaxing, chill parts of our week. At the Farmer’s Market, we aren’t rushed to get anywhere or overwhelmed by aisles and aisles stuffed with processed foods. We enjoy learning, seeing beautiful vegetables, and knowing exactly where (and who) our food is coming from. In case you aren’t familiar with your local Farmer’s Market – here’s our How-To Guide :)

5. Road Trip… Anywhere.

road trip-3

Explore beyond your surroundings. 9 times out of 10 when we have a free weekend, we just google the top 10 things to do in (fill in the city) and we take a day trip.. just to explore! This has landed us anywhere from 100-300 miles away exploring cities like Santa Barbara, Ojai, San Clemete, and Angelus Oaks. Is there a city near you that you’ve always wanted to explore? Get in the car and GO THERE.

 

 

The POUND Effect: All Ages, All Stages

DSC_5307_cbeyScrWDuring POUND Pro Training, we ask our new Pros to answer the question: “What is POUND?” We ask this question because we feel strongly that POUND should be accessible for every participant level and every body. By understanding what is at the heart of POUND – what POUND really is – our kickass Pros are able to create creative ways to use POUND to lead a variety of different people: all ages and all stages.

Before the first beat of the warm up drops, you walk into a space they create where you define what POUND is to YOU. And over the next hour, you explore movement, emotion, community and the Permission to Rock through their kickass, musically-driven class.

It’s a dream for us to see POUND participants young and old, male and female, beginners and athletes, seated in chairs and wheelchairs — and as you’ll learn today — deaf and blind. This moving Pro from Alabama shows us that ANYONE CAN POUND.

With that, we’re excited to introduce you to POUND Pro, Julie Brown. (more…)

Hair Tutorial: Triplet Inside-Out Pony

Learn how to do C's gymhairstyle: Triplet Inside-Out Pony!

  1. Section off the top half of your hair and secure with a rubberband. This is where your Inside-Out Pony will start.
  2. Pull the rubberband out slightly to loosen. Gently part the hair, creating a space to flip the pony tail up and through. Tighten.
  3. Grab another layer of hair from either side (like a french braid) and add to the flipped ponytail. Secure thicker ponytail with another rubberband.
  4. Repeat step 2, gently creating a space to flip the ponytail up and through.
  5. Grab the rest of the loose hair into a final pony and secure with a rubberband. Do one final flip and TADA! You have a Triplet Inside-Out Pony!

Ass Pass: Toms Squats

Ass pass. Every hour - on the hour. #tomssquats
Sneak this simple move into your daily routine each day and watch your booty lift, right away! Every hour, on the hour.

 

Start with your feet and knees together, like you’re sitting in an imaginary chair. Crank your arms back near your hips and drop even lower into your squat. On the rebound up, strike your Ripstix together and lift your right leg. Drop into a wide squat and open your arms, elbows forming 90 degree angles. Push off your right leg, strike your Ripstix together, and return to center. Repeat to the opposite side. Try 10 reps slow to each side, and then 10 fast!

Let Me See Ya Grill… Shrimp Tacos + Watermelon Salsa

Spend your 4th of July Hoilday grilling up some delicious Shirmp Tacos with Watermelon Salsa!

What better way to celebrate the USA’s b-day than in the backyard with the best people, laughing and making memories over the GRILL? (The answer is NOTHING). Grilling with friends is probably one of our favorite activities during the summer and it all starts on July 4th!

In LA, instead of hot dogs stands, we have fruit stands. They fill a huge plastic bag with watermelon, mango, cucumber, melon and jicama and they top it off with chili powder and lime juice. It’s delicious and it inspired our 4th of July Tacos this year!
Grab these simple ingredients and whip up a taco fest that will outshine the fireworks!
