Boot Camp H20 from Gilt City LA

I’ve always been a water sports girl.  Lately I’ve been totally obsessed with all of the sale sites (Gilt, Living Social, Daily Candy, Sugar, etc.) but this week, this amazing deal caught my eye from Gilt City LA.  Sure, I’ll have to drive all the way to the Pacific Palisades but I’m sorry…still totally worth it.  There’s an eight package class that’s a unique cross-training program of swimming, aquatic plyometrics and water polo (yes!).  This intenese cross-training regimen is the brainchild of two experts in matters aquatic: Igor Porciuncula, a Brazilian physical therapist, swim instructor and Red Cross lifeguard and Lana Shapiro, a USA Swimming-certified swim coach, swim instructor and Red Cross lifeguard.  But yeah…I’m not kidding myself, this class is going to be ridic hard.


Gift Idea: LUSH Wiccy Magic Muscles (for the athlete)

So I just tried out the cult classic, LUSH Wiccy Magic Muscles bar and I’m completely obsessed.  As someone who has constant neck pains due to a pinched nerve (can you believe it?), I’ve found that the there are very few products that actually help relieve the pain and tension.  Up until now, I’ve been relying on Tiger Balm and a memory foam neck pillow but now, thanks to LUSH, I’ve discovered a new cure.  The ingredients make total sense: cinnamon will warm things up, peppermint will stimulate sore bits and the aduki beans will massage in like little finger tips to loosen knots.  LOVE this and it’s a perfect gift for the athelete in your life.
