Remember my secret trip to NYC a few weeks ago? Well, now I can finally tell you guys all about it! :mrgreen:

I starred in three exercise videos for Fitness Magazine and Crystal Light Pure Fitness!!! Crazy, right!?!

A few months ago, the folks from Fitness Magazine contacted me about this project and I knew that I couldn’t turn it down. It was a once-in-lifetime opportunity! Plus, it sounded pretty fun! 😀

The video shoot included a real live camera crew, light experts, a prop stylist, and a whole slew of media people. It was the real deal!

I also had my hair and make-up done for the shoot. So fun! 😀

Ok, so let me tell you about the videos. Under the instruction of fitness instructors from Crunch, my new friends and I participated in three new workouts: Belly MovesRetro-robics, and Hula-Hoop.

The first video that we shot was Belly Moves. I’ve never tried belly dancing, so I thought I’d look like a total dork, but it was actually a lot more fun than I thought. I felt like I had a little bit of rhythm! 😉

In between the videos, we took breaks to rehydrate with Crystal Light Pure Fitness. (Belly Moves really worked up a sweat!) Also, during the breaks, the videographer asked me questions about what I thought of each of the workouts.

I swear, as soon as a camera is put on me, I get SO nervous! It’s like my mind goes totally blank and I say weird things.

Let’s try that again! 😉

There was a whole room of people staring at me, so, of course, I was nervous! Luckily, we didn’t have to do too many re-takes! 😉

The second workout, Retro-robics, took us back to the 80’s, where we rocked-out to our favorite old school hits and embraced the decade’s hi-lo aerobics. I love cheesy 80’s music and dance moves, so it was really fun for me!

The final workout, Hula-Hoop, was my favorite activity of the day because it brought out the kid in me. It was also the toughest workout of the day– I dropped my hoop at least 10 times! We used weighted hula-hoops to work our core and get our hearts pumping.

I thought that I wouldn’t remember how to hula-hoop, but it’s just like riding a bike– it came back to me right away!

Everyone else seemed to enjoy the hula-hooping too. There was lots of hoop-dropping and laughing during this workout!

You can see all of my Fitness Magazine videos here! 😀

  1. How cool! That looks like so much fun! I would have loved the 80’s one and the hula hoop. I think weighted hula hoops work best. So much fun! 🙂

  2. That. is. so. COOL! You are so COOL! Man. It’s awesome to be in a workout video. I’d definitely workout to a video with you in it. Every time I look up it’d be like “TINA! YAY!” 😀

    Wei-Wei

  3. In the videos, you repeatedly say that Fitness magazine invited you with “a bunch of your friends” and repeatedly reference “my friends,” but you said above in the comments that they were models/actresses/Fitness mag interns. I guess I’m just a little confused why it’s so misrepresented in the videos.

  4. I agree with Ashley. Why did they have you fib about your “friends”? It was obvious you didn’t know them. I guess that just goes to show we can’t believe everything we read and see?

    It still looked like you were having a great time though so good for you!
