THE ULTIMATE FITNESS FESTIVAL CREATED FOR YOU AND YOUR #FITFAM.
50+ one-of-a-kind workouts, live music performances, wellness moments, and
SO. MUCH. MORE!
IT WAS OFF THE HOOK!
Propel knows how to throw a fitness festival, y'all!
As soon as you walked into the event you could just feel the ENERGY! It felt like a huge playground for grown ups who love to move and who love self-care. There were so many fun photo ops, there were food trucks (yum!), a braiding booth, a massage booth, a skin care booth, free goodies, and not to mention all the AMAZING instructors and celebs who shared their energy, talents, and passion for movement with every attendee.
We were there representing Knockout LA, where we teaching weekly, every Tuesday at 8pm and every Saturday at 8pm. I felt so honored to have been given this opportunity to share what Alex and I have created with 3XT. I was so nervous for our class! I think it was mainly because I only had 30 minutes to encourage people to not only NOT BE INTIMIDATED by dance but to actually dive in and embrace dance like I do.
3XT is about way more than moving, jumping side to side, shaking your hips every once in a while (though all of that is fantastic!). It's about conquering fears. It's about no longer buying into the lies we are told about dance and movement. It's about adopting a child-like freedom and dancing your heart out! A very tall order for such a short time.

.And then all my nervousness quickly turned into excitement! The participants, some of which had a scared look on their faces, quickly started smiling, laughing, and even vibing off one another. We started with 50 attendants but then they let the people on the "waiting list" join in. People outside the roped area, the "walk-byers" and "stand-byers" alike, started taking pictures and videos and some even joined in! You guys!!!
It felt like a block party!
I couldn't have asked for a more open-minded and open-hearted crowd. They allowed me to share what I loved and they received it with OPEN ARMS! We danced, we screamed, we sweat... all to the sound of "TEMPO" byt Missy Elliot and Lizzo.
To all who participated, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. Alex and I created this program to replace inhibition with confidence and you guys did JUST THAT in 30 minutes!
Hats off to you!
I will be sharing more from that day, but for now I will leave you with these pictures and video of that day.
If you have never attended Propel's Co:Labs Fitness Festival, I highly encourage you to plan attending next year. You will have an amazing time and make some lifetime memories, ... not to mention new friends!
