FitFamily BOSU Challenge

For the last four weeks, the Sweat Pink community teamed up with BOSU to show the
world what it means to be #BOSUStrong. One thing that makes me BOSUStrong is my family because they inspire me to be strong and healthy and I hope to inspire them to do the same.

Randy, Ellie, Aleena and I love to run together!  Unfortunately between school, work and extra curriculars, we don't get to run together often. We exercise on our own on week days (I run before dawn cracks, Ellie has soccer several days a week, Aleena has gymnastics and swimming and Randy fits his runs in while Ellie is practicing soccer) We take advantage of the weekends to get active together! A few years ago, I introduced Ellie to running and love watching her.

Any time we run together, Ellie kicks my butt running sprints! A family that runs together, sticks together!

Our favorite #FitFamily BOSU workout is what we call "create your own" because both of my girls are fun and creative and love to show off new movesI am loving the BOSU Sport and the BOSU Sport-Kids DVD because its a great workout for my kid and has helped with their balance and agility.



We are so excited to have the opportunity to try the new BOSU Sport, a smaller version of the BOSU Balance Trainer (the Sport is 50 cm while the Balance Trainer is 65 cm)  that’s absolutely perfect for kids.  Now, the whole family can “BOSU” together!

That’s why we are a #BOSUStrong #FitFamily!

The new BOSU® Sport-Kids DVD encourages kids to have lots of fun while they get fit, strong and flexible! This total body fitness program, created by renowned trainer Brett Klika, targets 6 – 12 year olds and teaches kids that when you exercise your heart, lungs and muscles every day, you can be fit for life. The 60 minute DVD includes five BOSU® workouts, plus warm-up and cool-down, focusing on different components of fitness. Segments can be used individually or linked together for longer workouts. Check out the BOSU SPORT-Kids DVD. Get it for FREE when you purchase a BOSU Sport using the code: BOSUSWEATPINK15.

Lastly, get excited because BOSU just launched two new workout DVDs: BOSU Total Body Basics
 and BOSU Core Basics. Get ONE of these 2 downloads for FREE when you purchase a BOSU Balance Trainer using the code: BOSUSWEATPINK15.
