When I got the opportunity to do a sponsored post for Richmond #girlboss Seo Kellher ,I was over the moon excited for a few reasons. And not just because of my deep, deep love of active wear.
#1. I am always looking for a fresh, new workout.
#2. Supporting my fellow #girlboss ladies and their awesome empires rocks!
#3. Straight out of Richmond. Seo is cutting edge with the latest workouts she leads at Turn Cardio Jam Studio in Scotts Addition.
Make sure to follow CO2Fit on Instagram, she has a super inspirational feed that will get you moving!
I couldn’t say yes fast enough when this opportunity came to me. I was especially excited when I found out that my girl Joanna Avant, personal shopper/stylist and blogger was also on board. Since we were also in the midst of cooking up a little package that we are putting together for Valentine’ Day (alert your sweethearts if a style session is on your wish list!), we decided to do the video together one day.
So we set up camp right here in her kitchen and used her computer because we are both tech challenged and could not figure out how to be fancy and stream it onto the tv. I am sure our husbands or some neighborhood teenagers could have done it in their sleep but we didn’t have time to find them and make them work for us.
This is Seo’s first video and I think she really did a great job! It is perfect for those days when you can’t get to the gym or when the weather is too cold/hot. It is 20 degrees in Richmond today and we are getting ready for a ton of snow so I think I will be doing this video often.
It is for all ages and fitness levels so don’t be afraid to try this! What I love about it is that it is broken into three 15 minute sessions with an ab workout in each session. You can just do one 15 session if you are in a time crunch or if you want a new way to warm up for a run. Or you can do all three sessions for a complete workout.
Seo is an excellent instructor and she has two other people working out with her in each session that demo a higher or lower impact option for you to choose. The moves are repetitive so it doesn’t take long to catch on to the sequence once you get going. Even I could do it and I am always struggling with my right and left and following instructions (and other things you should really be good at after elementary school).
To be 100% honest….I wasnt sure this was going to be a real kick a$$ workout that I needed that day so I went to the gym before and did Fight class, my favorite cardio boxing class. Joanna did a 5:30am bootcamp at the YMCA. Turns out we were very wrong to underestimate how much of a workout this was! If it were up to me, I would have totally skimped and not done all three sessions or only done them halfway, but Joanna pushed me, I mean encouraged me, to give it my all. I was so sore that I could barely walk for days!
What did we think?
After having done the video and gotten the sequence down, I can really up my effort and push myself to sweat even harder. The only thing I don’t love is that there is no music to jam to but I solved that by adding some Pandora in the background. Thank you so much Seo for the opportunity to try your new workout video. I can’t wait to make it out to Turn Cardio Jam Studio to check out some other fun classes. I really want to try Dance Trance!
I highly recommend this for all fitness levels! I am especially grateful to have this as an indoor option this winter. Download your copy here and use the code EH15 to save 20%!
