Dear TRX, Thanks for bringing me to your team all those years ago and letting me share education to help e’erbody move BETTER. You rock my world… and being a Presenter KICKS ASS. 
Dear Reebok and Empower Fusion, thanks for hookin’ us up with these sweet new kicks! My feet are stoked. ; )  #beingapresenterkicksass
Dear Presenter VIP Room, I’m thankful you’re stocked with lots of healthy snacks… and Snickers bars. 
Dear Intercontinental Hotel, thank you for your giant mirror in the elevator that I can’t stop using. And your waterfall shower head. And for the cute bird decor in my room. You are my latest hotel jam. 
Dear Shana Martin, thanks for having my same sense of humor (mostly dirty joke humor). #TRXpartnerincrime

Dear Shana and Peter, good job on those Tabata intervals. I’m glad I just sat there and watched instead.

Dear Red Rock Canyon in Vegas, get ready. I’m about to climb all over you for the next few days. 
Dear Sun, I’m looking forward to seeing you again. It’s been a while. 
Dear Skin, I’m sorry. You’re probably going to get slightly burned this weekend, even though I’ll use sunscreen. I don’t care. You’re getting more color one way or another. And spray tans just aren’t my jam. #trieditthreetimesandalwayslookedbad

Visit to the ATL…

I had to go to Atlanta last last weekend for work… 
(more on that later) but while I was there, 
I managed to squeeze in a little blate time with Ashley!! 
It was so great to get to see her again, 
since our last blate was in December. 
We were able to have dinner one night
 and get all caught up, 
then I got to end my trip by attending a pool party 
with her and her ATL buds. 
Holla! 

Her buddy, Brandon making sure my camera worked… : ) 

It looks like this guy is flexing, 
but I just caught him mid-twist

Pools on hot days are my jam. 

YAY FOR POOL PARTIES
and a high five to Atlanta for being hot, but not scorching… 
like most summers. 
The weather was perfect that day! 
Ashley’s photo!
And a quick tip for looking good in photos where you’re almost naked 
(besides having Ash’s sweet tan, working out, and not eating crap):
*Turn your hips to the side, 
*Turn your shoulders toward the front, 
*Stand up tall. 
; ) 
I’ll be heading back to the ATL in 3 weeks! 
See you soon, Ash. And you too, Chelsea

4 Bloggers
4 Brunettes
4 cinnamon whiskey shots (but that’s a whole ‘nother blog post)
it was a great evening!
Ashley was way cooler than me and posted about this evening in a POEM.
Sigh.
Some people are just better… check it.

Guest Post: Run With Me!

Sooo pumped to have the gorgeous Ashley K from Run With Me here today! Follow her. She’s fab.

Hi Friends! So happy to be here today…..although I have to say that guest posting for a fitness expert who also happen to be a spitting image of a smouldering Angelina Jolie (only prettier….not to mention much classier) is no small task!

When I started thinking about what I wanted to write about, I knew it had to be something to do with health….since Ami’s blog is, after all, centered on fitness. I started to think about health….and what it means to people across all ages.

To an 8 year old – health is solely related to a class all about brushing your teeth, applying deodorant and how to properly take a message for your mother

To a college age person,  health is a Flinstones vitamin and walking to class. 

To a 60 year old, health is getting to walk PAST the Depends aisle and not down it. 

To an 80 year old, health is becoming wise enough to secure your favorite doctor’s telephone number for speed dial. 

But what is health to the people our age? I think to most, myself included, it’s squeezing a workout in after work and before the bachelorette if we’re lucky. It’s buying fruits and veggies but pushing them aside for the TV dinner and break-and-bake cookies. 

I always save this blog for last because I know as soon as I read it, I’m going to feel guilty sitting on the couch instead of getting some cardio in!

So be inspired! Get up and get moving! Let “health” in your 20s and 30s and 40s be about balance and exercise and healthy eating. Here’s to our healthiest summer ever…..with a chocolate-covered cherry on top!
