Fitness Friday Spotlight: Vint Fitness App

If you’re an MCLV regular you’ll know that I’m an active person. I lift, run, do yoga and Pilates, dabble in boxing… I consider myself pretty fit these days despite a chronic back injury.
Well on Saturday this little lifestyle blogger made her way down to SOMA for a fun morning of workouts and healthy treats with Stockholm based fitness app VINT. Not only did I get to meet some amazing fitness & lifestyle bloggers, trainers, and the fabulous team behind the app, but I got to do two workouts with the group.
For a flat monthly fee the app lets you sign up for personalized training sessions at times and locations that are convenient for YOU. Everything from bodyweight bootcamp-style workouts and boxing to dance and yoga. Classes will never have more than 4 people but you may find yourself enjoying one-on-one sessions as well.
It sounded like a pretty killer deal to me and I was excited to put some of their trainers through their paces Saturday. After two bodyweight group workouts I was sweaty, breathless, and pumped up. And then I tried to sit up on Sunday morning…

Since injuring my lower back core has become a way of life.  I take my core work very seriously and I thought that the days of being sore from an abdominal-centric workout were long gone. However as I tried, and failed, to sit up on Sunday I realized that I’d just found a workout that pushed me even further than I push myself.
I’m officially a convert!

Healthy & Fitness:

Do you track your daily food intake? While it can see daunting to keep track of every single thing that you put in your mouth over the course of the day, it can be a useful and informative project. Commonly people over – or under – estimate their intake of calories, fat, protein, fiber, and vitamins & nutrients. Over the years I’ve tried a handful of programs – From Slimkicker to Livestrong to the My Fitness Pal app (for Android!) that my boyfriend recommends to his CrossFit clients. I highly recommend giving this a try, you may be surprised by what you find out!

I can’t live without music in my day-to-day life and I REALLY can’t live without music at the gym. If I forget my headphones or don’t charge my mp3 player, odds are I’ll skip my workout. So finding new tunes for my fitness sessions is essential – Whether they’re new tracks on the airwaves or I’m rediscovering CDs from my youth.
