I love working out and I love being on vacation, so it only makes sense that I love working out while on vacation. To me, vacation is all about checking out new cities and being away from “normal” life. When I was in Arizona, I was able to get in a few workouts. Working out in Scottsdale made my spring break trip all the more fun!
Justin took me to his CrossFit box: Camelback CrossFit.
One word? AWESOME! The box was super clean which I didn’t even think was possible for a box. It’s fairly new, so all of their equipment is in excellent condition. Justin and I attended a midday class which meant it wasn’t very crowded. The owners / coaches were clearly incredibly knowledgeable and safety was their top concern. Since I’m not a CrossFit regular, they helped me make modifications and provided assistance when necessary. Even being a newbie, I instantly got the community feel from this box. People were supportive no matter what their fitness level was. During the workout, the handstand push-ups were obviously my favorite. And the wall balls sucked. End of story.
PS: If you’re in Scottsdale, you should definitely check out Camelback CrossFit. New members can take a class for free!
Dana took me to her gym for a hot yoga class.
I always think it’s fun to take classes from various instructors, and this one was great. It was a tough workout that included lots of chaturangas and upper body work. I told Dana to strike a pose for a photo, and she rocked a strong headstand:
One day while William was napping, I decided to go for a quick jog. And by quick I mean short. 😉 I busted out one mile. At the beginning, I glanced down at my watch to check my pace. I made it my goal to beat nine-minutes since I was just running one.
Missed it by three seconds! Argh! It still felt good to run though!
So those were all my formal workouts, but I did take William on a few walks and Justin and I went to the park one day to play. And by play, I mean me and Justin.
I tried out crow…
But Justin did it way better!
Handstands and cartwheels are more my style…
