Style Details No. 196

The most common goal I hear year after year is: “This is the year I’m going to start working out.” Well, if this is your goal, I believe in the look good, feel good method. So, it’s time to stock up on some new activewear.  I should mention, Style Details normally consists of items I want/need, but today is all about my ten tried and true products that I love and can’t live without.

Yesterday was all about looking good, but today is all about “shocking your body” as the fusionistas like to say. If you are from Kansas City then it would be hard not to hear about Fusion Fitness. If you are not from Kansas City and have not heard of Fusion, it is your lucky day. Fusion changed my life and my approach to working out.  Created by the ever talented, Darby Brender, she developed a system that transforms your body by elongating your muscles, decreasing body fat, improving cardiovascular endurance as well as increasing flexibility. I didn’t believe it at first, but Fusion actually changed the shape of my body.

Here is a little back story: I started going to Fusion Fitness over a year ago when I lived in Kansas City. It was the first work out class I was actually excited to go to every night. After being a dancer for 18+ years, I could never find a workout that I truly enjoyed. Running is not my thing (I do it, but I don’t like it), I get bored with Yoga, and kickboxing got old after 5 days in a row. When my friend introduced me to Fusion, I was instantly hooked. For months I would go at least 5 times a week and would be mad at myself if I missed a class.  With over 30 different classes and counting, you never felt like you were doing the same thing twice.  The music is the best, the instructors are top notch, and for me it was a community.  When I decided to move away from Kansas City 6 months ago, I knew I was going to have a hard time leaving Fusion for more reasons than one, but I decided to not let it get the best of me.  This is when I bought by first Fusion Fitness DVD set. Since moving, I have a little piece of Fusion with me in Ohio. I can do it in front of my TV every night and still get the same workout experience, minus all of the people around.  I have to push myself harder than before but I am still seeing the results.

So for today’s installment of the New Year, New You series, one lucky reader will receive their very own Fusion Fitness Dream Body DVD sets to start “Shocking Their Body”.  The two 5 disc sets contain some of my favorite workouts of all time. Bata Bar and Bikini Bootcamp are my favorites in the Cardio series and Fusion Mix and Tabata and Toning are my favorite in the original Dream Body series.

I want to hear from you, what is your favorite way to stay in shape? Follow the Rafflecopter below to enter, the giveaway will end on Friday, January 10th! So get moving!

The number one resolution for most people is kicking their workout routine into gear year after year.  For me, if I am feeling good while working out, I work out harder.  This may seem a little superficial but it works for me. I recently came across this new to me brand called Albion Fit, a company that strives on making quality, stylish workout wear.  It is the type of workout wear that you can be caught in all day long and not be embarrassed when you run into people at the grocery store.

To kick off the New Year, New You week, Albion Fit is giving away a $50 gift card to one lucky winner to start their year of working out on the right tract. Who says you can’t look good but still work hard!

Some of my favorites are the Retreat Tees (for the winter months and yoga), the Love Racer, these capris (love the girly touches), and this adorable tennis skirt. Albion fit is known for their attention to detail when it comes to workout wear. Let’s just say they know how to make a girl look good.

Follow the Rafflecopter to enter the giveaway, the winner will be announced on Friday, January 10th.
