The Power of Partner Workouts & Premier Protein Giveaway

I am a Premier Protein Ambassador. Premier Protein sponsored a community bootcamp workout at ComCardio, covered the cost of the class for the participants, provided the protein samples and gift bags. All opinions are my own.

A dedicated workout partner can be your secret weapon in fitness. Sometimes we are all too willing to cancel on ourselves but we'll show up in order to not disappoint a friend. A workout partner can provide accountability, some friendly competition and motivation for just one more workout. Surrounding ourselves with supportive people can be so uplifting!

I am very fortunate that I have two three regular workout partners in my life: my husband, my best friend and we can't forget, Ollie. Hubby is always up for a run or a circuit workout in the #shredshed. My BFF is my Yoga, walking and weight training buddy. Ollie is a beast who is always willing to go for a run at the drop of a hat (or a bone).

ComCardio Grand Opening Celebration

This past weekend I led a bootcamp class at ComCardio in Hurst, TX as part of their grand opening celebration. Comcardio is a brand new studio catering to the local community. Premier Protein sponsored the workout by covering the cost for the participants, provided delicious protein bars, shakes and ahh-mazing gift bags for our boot campers!

Shopping is my Cardio

We were very happy to have Shopping is My Cardio drop by to try some bootcamp moves with us and taste Premier's tasty protein! It was a ton of fun filming with them and we were thrilled to have them there! I can't wait to see the TV segment in September....stay tuned, I'll be sure to let you know when it airs.

Premier Protein

#myonemore. Whether it is one more workout for the week, one more mile on your run, one more rep during your set or one more serving of protein, Premier Protein understands that it is the small consistent actions that can lead to big results. They encourage you to share how you can do #myonemore this week! Let me know in the comments!

Our boot camp participants gobbled up the protein! After a hot workout, a cooled shake with 30 grams of protein was the perfect post-workout recovery drink.

Six delicious flavors of protein bars! The fiber chocolate mint is my favorite!

Thank you Premier Protein!

The Workout

Keeping with the theme of the workout partners, I developed a partner circuit workout so our boot campers could work together achieve their reps, motivate each other and cheer each other on! I encouraged everyone to think about their own #myonemore during the workout.

We moved it outdoors and sweated it out in the parking lot under a covered porch. I recruited some of my boot campers to fitness model and I shared our partners workout over on Lea Genders Fitness strength & Running blog. I'd love if you would grab a friend and give it a try!

Stretch it out!

The Giveaway!

The Premier Protein Giveaway

I would have loved if you could have joined us at ComCardio in Hurst, TX but I know that is not possible for everyone, so I have two Premier protein gift bags that I am giving away; one for you and one for you to give to your favorite workout partner! The gift bags include a Premier Protein Yoga mat with carrying bag, a sweat towel, a hat, a water bottle, a gym bag and protein bars! A big thank you to Premier Protein for these amazing gift bags! Show them love!

Thanks again to ComCardio, Premier Protein and all the amazing people who showed up to sweat it out with us. I teach an indoor bootcamp every Tuesday night and lead a free run club on Thursdays at ComCardio. I'd love to see you there!

    I have been sick this week and have fallen off the wagon but I plan on slowly getting back to the grind this weekend. I'm thinking some yoga, light running, and of course protein shakes and clean eating!

  2. Would love to add yoga to the mix and the protein bars and shakes sound delicious.

  3. These bars and shakes would help me have more stamina to add strength training to my routine.

  4. Its about to be ridiculously hot here in Arizona. I think I'm going to walk to Starbucks for my #justonemore

  5. I try to do just one more by adding in push ups and squats for cross training each day.

    1. Great idea! I am working on my push-ups too!

  6. I am planning on #justonemore walk in my hilly neighborhood this week!

  7. I'm planning to squeeze in a mini-workout amidst the hectic wedding weekend. I'm in the bridal party and have no time to get to the gym, but I'll do my best to work out a bit the morning of the wedding! And dancing all night! ;)
