|Carissa (Fit2Flex), Kacey (PowerCakes) and I are ready for the conference!|
Welcome to the recap of Day 1 of the Fitness and Health Bloggers Conference! Did you check out my recap of my first day in Colorado yet? I attended an amazing excursion into the Rocky Mountains thanks to goodnessKnows snack squares!

After the tradeshow and lunch, we got into our first keynote speakers – Dr. James Hill (Importance of an Evidence Based Approach to Heath and Wellness) and Dr. Inigo San Millan (Current Evidence on Achieving and Maintaining Physical Fitness). While I am more of a lifestyle blogger than a fitness/health blogger, I still found these discussions very fascinating and relatable.
After our sessions, I attended an optional fitness class – Tabata Bootcamp! I had never even heard of Tabata Bootcamp before, but it seems similar to Tone It Up’s HIIT workouts – high intensity interval training. Our instructor, Adam, led us through a warm-up, 20 minute workout and a cool down in the 30 minute class time. I thoroughly enjoyed this fitness class! Check back July 2 for a more detailed post on the Tabata Bootcamp routine that Adam created for us.

|I got nothing on these girls!|
Post-workout I grabbed some chocolate milk from the Got Chocolate Milk ladies. I was really excited for dinner because Chipolte was catering! I had a huge burrito, chips, quacamole, and sparking apple juice. It was so delicious! After dinner, we headed back to the hotel. Although we hoped to go out and see Denver, Carissa and I were so exhausted after our first day at the conference. Blogging and bed for us!
|Thanks for dinner, Chipolte!|
Check back tomorrow for a special yoga giveaway for my Blogversary! Also, let me know in the comments below if you have ever tried a Tabata workout. I can’t believe I had never even heard of it!
