CCF's Wintery Playlist

V's iPod Family! Newest member - BLUE!
Each colour for a different music mood :)
Hey City Peeps! Happy Thursday :) The weekend is just around the corner, hang in there!

Are you in need of some new tunes? As always, you can count on CCF to deliver the best in what music gets us moving! 

If you haven't realized it by now, CCF LOVES MUSIC!! We are always on the hunt for new songs and artists that are 'workout playlist' worthy. Let's be honest, how else can you survive the treadmill?  Elliptical? Exactly! Having a playlist that pumps you up and makes you excited to workout is priceless.

Why you shouldn't SH*T in your own backyard...

CCF's City Chick of the month, Gina, shares her passion for MMA and thoughts on living a healthy lifestyle while navigating the murky waters of the dating world. 

We all know that cardinal rule, don't date anyone at work!  It's something that I swear by but why didn't I think it also applied to the gym?  Silly me!  Now I love this class I go to 4-5 times a week, it makes me happy, makes me sweat buckets and I look forward to it every single day. The first time I tried this MMA style class, I instantly fell in love with it. Who knew that I would find something that completed me in so many ways. Yes I know it sounds cheesy but I love this class just as much as I love my cats!
Even my cats are into MMA!

Back on Track!

Hi city peeps! We've missed you this summer! Sorry for being MIA for most of it (2 months off, holy smokes! where did the time go?), but we hope you had a great one :) 

I have a confession to make. This past month, I completely fell off the bandwagon. No scheduled workouts, no fitness classes, and thus, no blog posts...and I don't feel guilty. Not one bit!

Between vacation, eating out all the time, and galavanting this summer, there's been very little time left for working out. Oh who am I kidding, I've just been lazy about it. It's summer, c'est la vie.

What I can say is, even though I haven't kept up with my usual structured workouts, I find myself gravitate towards active things to do while on vacation. Here are some tips from our previous posts on how to keep fit while on vacation (in Vegas and on a winter getaway). On my latest adventure to Hawaii, I found myself walking everywhere, swimming almost everyday, jogging along the beach, and of course hiking!

Viva Las Vegas!

Hey ladies & gents! How's it going?

It's been a while since our last post so I wanted to fill you in on what CCF has been up to lately. I was fortunate enough to spend the Victoria Day long weekend in Vegas. 5 days, 4 nights and one really awesome girlfriend could only equal one thing, a great vacation! If you haven't been I highly recommend it....just be prepared to be blown away! I spent my days soaking up the rays by the pool, laughing with friends, meeting great people, shopping, dancing and seeing artists perform live - Missy Elliot, PSY, Calvin Harris & Kaskade. Vegas never sleeps and neither did I! There is always something to do and some nights I had to force myself to sleep (perhaps some truth behind the popular myth that casinos pump oxygen to keep you awake??).
