Happy Weekend! What are you doing this weekend? Chances are, you are attending one of the MANY events that happen around Dallas. If you are looking for things to do head over to @dallasfitnessambassadors page to find bloggers who are sharing events every month! 

Last weekend, some members from DFA represented at the Sweat Showcase, hosted by The Westin Galleria Dallas featuring Body By Simone! I was so excited when I heard about this event, and it was PACKED with workouts, an amazing health and fitness Panel, a Q&A with Simone, an expo with sweet goodies, a fashion show, and a super sweaty workout with Simone herself! 

The Food

For lunch, The Westin served us a fresh salad, watermelon cilantro/pinneapple salad, green beans, broiled chicken, and rice. Along with a delicious mousse with fruit that I indulged in a few bites-didn't think that would make for the best workout feeling, but that was AMAZING. Thank you so much for providng such healthy and fulfilling options for the day!

The PRIZES 

Yes..all.day.long! I think its a really nice touch when you give out prizes at an event. Its a great way for brands to get there products into more hands, and you make your guests feel extra special-who doesn't love gifts?! From a DrinkBai basket, to a $200 shopping spree to the Galleria, to a 50 minute Consultation with The Lyons Share (which I am excited to say I won!), there were SO many amazing gifts. Thank you to all the vendors and sponsors of the day! 

 All the models for the day-what a blast!

The Expo

After our panels and lunch, guests were directed to the Expo, where dozens of vendors set up with some sweet coupons, giveaways, and showcasing their offerings from clothing to food, to boutique fitness experiences. Brands like Lululemon, Outdoor Voices, Six02, and Sun Lovin Roots shared their latest trends. It was a blast getting to model some apparel throughout the expo for Sun Lovin Roots-Stacie is a sweetheart and their clothes are super soft, and made in the USA! Definitely going to need some of her witty tees and jumpers for fall!

The SWAG and Cocktails!! 

The stops just kept coming out y'all! After our workout we headed over the bar, where DrinkBai was mixing up some healthy cocktails! My favorite flavor has to be the new coconut flavors (Puna Coconut Pinneapple-YUM!) . I love anything coconut. It's no surprise I only drank Pina Coladas on my honeymoon! 

 

The WORKOUT

I had never done a BBS workout and although I have taken Dance Club Cardio at Grit Fitness and used to teach Turbo Kick, I didn't expect THIS to be so fun and SO sweaty! Simone is an amazing teacher and we got to learn 3 different dance routines for a total of 50 minutes of booty-shakin, beat-droppin, FUN. Yes I said fun. I can't wait to incorporate her workouts into my life! 

We finished up with some booty and core toning and that hit it home for me. Thank you Westin for the towels they were clutch!! 

 After our BBS dance cardio workout! What a great sweat!!!
