This week, I’m heading to Jacksonville, Florida for a work conference and will also get to visit with my family members that live nearby. I’m almost a little excited to actually try out some of these “Hotel WODs” I’ve been seeing online lately.

In other exciting news, I am not a contributor to the Zweet Sport blog! Never heard of Zweet Sport? Well, get ready to love ’em! If you scroll to the bottom of this page, you can see my bio on their contributor’s page.
Zweet is an up and coming fitness clothing company in the area that focuses on bikram yoga, pole dancing (yep, you heard me!), general fitness and now, Crossfit! I was brought on to blog about Crossfit, which is super exciting! My first post should be coming out sometime this week so stay tuned!
