Always a showdown (and typically a show in gender politics), the perception that the low weight/ high rep combo tones while the heavy weight/low rep combo bulks continues to perplex exercisers everywhere.
It's that old stereotype of being one or the other- the bulked-up dudes, sweaty and high-fiving over a loaded up squat bar OR a Pilates princess kicks smoothly...
Let's address it- the issue that sparks so heated a debate it’s a surprise no one has self-combusted. Yet.
Absolutely everything is pumpkin- pumpkin spice lattes , pumpkin rolls, pumpkin bread, pumpkin truffles- even pumpkin fro-yo.

We got some seriously good choreographing ideas after all the conversations and were soo surprised to hear some of the songs- avant-garde is totally in. If you want to see some more images, the facebook page has been loaded up and is now chock full of crazy and...
Finally! We are online and established in a new home.
Bear with us since we just moved in and are finding our footing. Be sure to check back every so often to keep updated and check out what we're cooking, listening to, and other miscellaneous happenings :)
