You know what’s fun? Knowing all the rules of fitness and not following any of them. Or! Is the only rule of fitness to have fun?
Lately I’ve been choosing having fun over any program. I’ve been going to cycle class lead by the most hilarious instructor (@chaselcook) and getting on that stepmill and knocking out a crossword puzzle while some favorite high school rap songs play (@jermainedupri).
My most recent fun filled fitness activity lead me back to #bodystep. This was the first format I was ever certified to teach about 15 years ago!
Thankfully there are a few places in #kansascity who still teach it, and so I went today and spent the whole time smiling as I was reminded of how hilariously fun that class is. It was a great workout too!
I’m guilty of getting bogged down in the “shoulds” of fitness, but am happy to be in a season of looking for the fun stuff and plan on more #bodystep, more laughing and less rules!
Did you know that when I’m not at @citygymkc that I’m trying to save the planet?
My current project is collecting toothbrushes and empty toothpaste tubes for proper recycling.
These items can’t go into curbside recycling so they end up in the trash and live forever.
Please attend my event at @crowscoffee WALDO on December 28 and 29 as I collect the items pictured above (any brand is accepted) to then ship them to @terracycle for proper recycling.
THE DETAILS: On December 28 and 29 @crowscoffee will have a collection box set up all day for your contribution. Look for the box and then toss your clean items in. Please remove as much toothpaste from the tubes as possible. https://www.facebook.com/events/533299613839500/?ti=icl
Follow @cbbirkey and help me save the planet.

Now that holiday parties are starting back up, this seems timely. I’m sure every trainer in the history of trainers can relate to this on some level.
I’m thankful for my @citygymkc fam and #fitnessfriends. 😘
I teach on Friday at 8:30 & 9:30!💪🏼 #Repost @citygymkc with @get_repost

Last night @iancadecampbell debuted a new class at @citygymkc WALDO. City Lift and Row.
There was lifting and there was rowing. 😉 loud music, hard work, sweating... it was awesome (just check those smiling, sweaty faces!). The class is offered Wednesday at 5:30pm with more classes to come in the new year. Check it out!✌🏼
The fall session of #real45 at @citygymkc ended today with #paleo snacks and good conversation.
