The sunrise was amazing this morning! I can tell you because I was way up in the Toronto skyline, on the roof of the Thompson Hotel, teaching a 6:30 am #NTC class to some of Toronto's most dedicated ladies! They worked their butts off to the sounds of Pharrell, Shaggy (yes I said Shaggy), Rihanna, and Nicki Minaj, just to name a few. Today's workout was inspired by two NTC Get Focused Workouts: Ali Krieger's Summer Strong Workout, and Christen Press' Goal Getter workout! We push-uped, bounded, squatted and planked like lady bosses, all before the sun was up; best of all, everyone left feeling happy, sweaty, and recharged, ready for an amazing day ahead! Three different sets of partner work also allowed the ladies to make some new friends in Toronto's fitness community! Sounds like something you don't want to miss right? Join me next week to get your workout #donebydawn, and you're sure to feel #betterforit! Registration for next week's classes will be up on Nike.com/Toronto as of Sunday at midnight!
If you're looking for a great workout in the meantime, check out the 2 workouts mentioned above on the N+TC App. The Summer Strong and Goal Getter Workouts are both complete body workouts that will challenge your strength and capacity, but leave you feeling awesome. You'll find both of these workouts in the 'Get Focused' section of the app.
