Allison, your resident fitness blogger, shares her fitness favorites…

As you may or may not know, I kicked off this Fitness Blog for Arizona Foothills a year and a half ago – and I’ve LOVED every second of it! But all good things come to an end. This is my last week, and I wanted to say thanks to everyone for reading and contributing – means the world.

As one of my final sayonaras, I wanted to share My Fitness Favorites. I started this regular feature as a way for you to get to know the fitness personalities across the Valley… so it seems fitting I share mine.

About me: I’m a freelance health and fitness writer for various magazine, and the co-founder of FIT[tbd], a gym jumping membership that lets you do all the best workouts and visit all the best boutique gyms with ONE membership (hello, my workout dream come true!). And without further adieu, my fit faves…

Favorite workout…
Arghhhhh… I know I’ve asked many people the very same question, but no way could I pick just one. That’s why FIT[tbd] is such a dream come true. Some days I’m in the mood of a good stretch session, other days I want to seriously sweat, while other days I want a more targeted workout (like barre). But if I had to pick just one desert island workout, it would have to be yoga. It’s the best way to clear my monkey mind and there’s no better feeling than chillin’ in Shavasana after a power flow.

Favorite instructor…
My friends make fun of me because I’m always saying “so-and-so is my favorite teacher”…and every week the teacher changes. If I want a no-holds-barred workout that really pushes me to my limits, I’d say Taylor at Amenzone and Shandi at StudioMixx. For Pilates, I love the gals at Remedy. As for yoga, there are just too many teachers to mention (they know who they are).

Favorite local healthy restaurant…
I eat out pretty much every day. My 3 top spots are Lux (their farm-fresh menu changes daily and I love that pretty much everything is made from scratch), LGO (the Kale Quinoa Salad is to-die-for) and True Food Kitchen (it’s not too often that an entire menu is healthy and yummy).

Favorite workout wear…
I worship workout wear. Kudos to lululemon for turning tights into something fashionable – and acceptable outside the gym. There’s a lot of lulu in my workout closet, but I love it all: Teeki, Colosseum Brand… I could go on and on. I love wacky tights, the crazier the better… and flowy tanks.

Favorite beauty product…
Finally, an easy question: Tarte Cheek Stain. Never leave home without it!
