Abs + Apps Launch Party {Recap}


Last week I had the pleasure of attending my friend Whitney’s iPhone App launch party! She partnered up with the beautiful Kodi Kitchen, the creator of Best U Studio for her super fun Abs + Apps Launch Party in West HollyWood at the Naked Princess! I have always wanted to try a U Barre class, so naturally when I got the invitation I had to call my bestie who is a ballet instructor and invite her to join me! I wasn’t about to make a fool of myself without her 😉

Kodi led us in a rocking U Barre class with 8, 10, or 12 pound U Barres. If you have never felt a U Barre, they have the same texture as a kettle bell and now she even has ones that come in a gold finish..fancy…fancy! It was a lot hard than I was anticipating!


All of us ladies got to wear a Fabletics outfit! I have been dying to try out an outfit from them for a while now! If you haven’t heard, Fabletics is the super cute and affordable activewear line by Kate Hudson! I loved the back of my tank top and it fit quite comfortably. I think I should have gotten a small as it was a little looser than I am used to.


Danielle and I were both super sore from the workout the next day! Having to hold the U Barre the whole time while doing squats, lunges, abs and much more kept our arms and abs contracted the WHOLE TIME! The workout is a fusion of cardio, barre, pilates, and ballet moves, using the patented weighted U Barre to get those strong, toned arms!


After the class we enjoyed some of Whitney’s most popular recipes on her blog: Watermelon Caprese Salad,Skinny Chicken Salad Bites, and No-Bake Chocolate Truffles.

As well as some refreshing Health-Ade Kombucha  and chardonnay and champagne from One Hope Wine. I never would have thought of combining Kombuch with wine, what a great idea!


Danielle and I had such a great time! Thank you Whitney for the wonderful invite!


Question: Have you tried a U Barre class or any Barre class? I am excited because we have a Barre workshop at the Refresh Summit this year!!!
