Weekend whirlwind


Dallas weather is getting hot! So you know it’s time to hit the outdoors! This summer’s HIIT (high intensity interval training) series is a fun way to feel empowered, get out of your comfort zone, and get a good workout! Not only will the exercise take your breath away, but this park has the best Downtown Dallas Skyline views. It is picture perfect! The only thing you need is a yoga mat! Before we begin, stop by the “braid-bar” and get your hair nicley done so you can be worry free about it throughout the workout! After the workout, hydrate and refuel with some infused water and protein packed bites! (Do not forget to wear your lucky socks. There will be raffle prizes at the end!)
