Park Your Fit

People rely on the gym entirely too much. Don’t get me wrong , you can get a great workout and good experiences at the gym but, that’s not the only place to get fit. Me personally, I love exercising in parks. I’m sure you can tell because a lot of my pictures are taken in the great outdoors. I do a lot of track workouts and I prefer outdoor tracks as oppose to indoor ones.

I like working out outside more because I get fresh air and a lot more space to myself. If you live in New York like me however, during the winter months it’s too cold to complete workouts outdoors, that’s when I hit the gym.

Don’t just take my word for it though, see how you like carrying out your workouts outdoors. It’s summer, enjoy the gorgeous weather. Parks are a great place to start !

IMG_0290IMG_9958IMG_0250 IMG_0292 IMG_0298Is it not obvious that I love PRETTY GIRL SWEAT ?! Yesterday’s event was fabulous. I had so much fun working out with these wonderful ladies. Youtube sensation Shameless Maya was in attendance, not only did she participate in the Gym Rat Race but she also spoke about her fitness background among other things. There were great prizes given out and good vibes all around.

Now you’re probably wondering what on earth is a Gym Rat Race? The Gym Rat Race is a method of getting fit created by trainer Courtney Alexander. I thought it was a lot of fun and gave me a chance to bond with the other girls.

There was one thing that happened yesterday that touched me most of all. A young lady named Miyoshi approached me and told me how much I inspired her. It made me feel great and I know I can’t stop now.  I have people like Miyoshi counting on me. These events are so great because you can exercise and help empower or be empowered. I hope now even more girls will register for the next event.

I’m happy to let my readers know that I have officially done my first commercial. The commercial was for a lovely spa located in lower Manhattan called La Casa Day Spa. I go to La Casa Day Spa for colonics and the owner thought it would be a good idea for me to let everyone know how I feel about this great place.

If you don’t know who, what, where, when about this spa, I suggest you head to the website here. Trust me, you would love the calming atmosphere and the lovely staff. There are some spas that don’t really teach about health and wellness and focus more on just taking your money but La Casa Day Spa is not like that at all. Since I have been going there I have learned so many new things that are helping me on my journey to becoming the healthiest me I can be. Even the wonderful woman who performs the colonic therapy on me, Cher, is a two time cancer survivor. I thought that was just amazing!

Like I said before, I go specifically for colonics. . . However there are many other options to choose from. For those of you who do not know what a colonic is, you can read about it on their website here. Colonics have definitely helped my body and especially my flat stomach. I suggest you all go to La Casa Spa and cleanse your bodies.

Essence World meets CleopatraFit

IMG_9100 IMG_9137 IMG_9142 IMG_9225 IMG_9240 IMG_9260 IMG_9299 IMG_9312 IMG_9329 IMG_9336 (1) IMG_9340 IMG_9343 IMG_9352 IMG_9399 Surrounding myself with motivated young women is ideal. That’s why I would like to introduce Essence, she is the first person I will be doing a “fitness collab” with.  There’s a lot more to Essence than just a pretty face. She raps, she’s a working girl and does a lot of exercise too.

Well the both of us have a surprise for all you ladies. In August we will be hosting an exercise class in NYC! It’s in the works & trust me it’s going to be fantastic. I’ll spill some secrets later but for right now that’s all the info you need. Get ready for our takeover.

Hope you enjoy the photos, we went through a lot to get these great shots in Central Park. All the photos were taken by Ajani.

I am all about finding fun ways to work out. There are a variety of ways but this woman Lex has taken it to a new level with her “Twerkout” class. I had the pleasure of hosting one of her New York classes Friday the 13th. It was so much fun!

It’s a lot more than shaking your booty but that’s what pulls females in. It’s not as easy as it looks but, it’s a good time. You guys know I love to sweat! I think everyone should try it, even if you’re shy and no matter your size.

Posing for pictures on my New York rooftop brings me great joy. . . But do you know what else does? Fitness and Fashion.  So far most of you know the fitness side of me but not too many people know how I feel about fashion, clothing etc.

First off. . .

I dress however I want. There may be some trends I throw into an outfit here and there but there is no one out there who dresses just like me. My clothes make me feel better. When I look nice, I feel nice. Working with different brands from many different parts of the world has really helped me expand my style. That’s why I try to tag all the brands I wear so maybe other people can get some inspiration too. For example, in the pictures above, my crop tank and visor are from SyberGurl.

I’m no fashion icon nor do I stay on top of what celebrities wear. . . But that’s probably because half of the time I’m in some nike fitness gear handling business.

I don’t always keep up with celeb fashion but when I do , my two favorite people to look to are Angela Simmons & Rihanna ( when she is fully clothed ).
