Happy Mondayyyyyyy! Today I’m back at home in Colorado after traveling all last week to Santa Ynez Valley where I ate, drank, worked out, slept in extra comfy hotel beds, and even sat by the pool to work. It was seriously such an amazing week and I can’t wait to share all the details from the trip in a post this week! But until then, let’s talk about the workouts I still got into while on vacation!

Whenever I travel, I try to always involve some sort of exercise. Whether that’s biking somewhere, walking to dinner, bodyboarding at the beach, hotel gym workout, working out on the balcony if there is no gym, dropping into a CrossFit gym, going to an Orange Theory workout, or trying a completely new workout/gym – I try to always get in some sort of exercise no matter what. Vacations are for relaxing and recovering, but I also know that I’m a happier person during my vacation AND after when I continue to workout.

While on this trip to Santa Ynez Valley, I was able to get in 3 different kinds of workouts. The first workout I tried while on the trip was pilates! I’ve never done actual pilates before and was excited to have my first session at such a beautiful studio –  Pilates at Studio Joie De V in Santa Ynez. The owner was so friendly and easy to chat with and paid close attention to detail with the body and how it moved throughout the entire hour. My bum, shoulders and hips were so tired the next day! I thought it was an awesome workout, but I still love my soaked-in-sweat, absolutely-exhausted CF and OTF workouts a little bit more. I want to leave feeling like I have nothing left in me and I didn’t quite get that. BUT that could have been because it was my first time and we had to concentrate a little more on body mechanics than the motions. I would totally go again to Pilates at Studio Joie De V if I’m ever back in Santa Ynez! And I highly recommend it for someone who needs rehabilitation/physical therapy after injuries or other issues!

I was also able to drop in at CrossFit Santa Ynez Valley where everyone was so incredibly friendly and easy to get along with! I’m pretty particular about what I want from a CF gym and this one was great! Friendly staff, friendly members, clean space and great workout! I woke up the next morning feeling like I was hit by a bus, probably after walking 75m on my hands – haven’t done that in A LONG time!

My last workout was a hotel workout that I made up on the spot while staying at the Fess Parker Inn. They had a great little gym with some cardio equipment and dumbbells so I just pulled a workout out of my ass and got to work! I left COMPLETELY drenched in sweat, feeling ready to get back home and work my butt off again in the gym. This trip was completely full of amazing food and fabulous cocktails, but I came home still feeling good in my skin. And that’s exactly why I think fitness on vacations is important and helpful! The more you can take care of your body and your mind while on vacation, the more likely you are going to be able to get right back into your healthy routine once you return home. Which is a good thing for me right now since I leave town again on Thursday, this time for Austin, aka the place with some of the best food in the nation!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Hi Juli! Question about Orangetheory. I started about 3 weeks ago and love it! But I feel like I might not be wearing the best sneakers for what I’m doing. What kind do you wear when you do Orangetheory? Thanks!

  2. Hey Juli,

    I have been working out in Austin for over 1.5 years at a fantastic HIIT boot camp and have seen some amazing strength and fat loss results! I feel as though I’ve plateaued in the last 6-8 months and have added in some additional lifting/strength training at a gym on my own. I was thinking about giving Crossfit a shot, as I really love having a workout planned for me with someone nearby to ensure my form is good–especially if I was to take up some of those Olympic lifts. Have you tried any Crossfit boxes in the Austin area that you would recommend?


    1. i’ve been to quite a few, honestly. i’ve been to Austin 6-7 times and worked out at different gyms every time. the programming at CrossFit Central was probably my favorite!

  3. Hi Juli! Not related to workouts, but where do you get your nails done in Denver, and what type of service do you get? Your nails always look so good! I am leaving for a 3 week trip and want something that’s going to last as long possible. Would love suggestions! Thanks for all you do! ~Liz

  4. I saw you comment recently (maybe on ig) that you don’t like to wear shorts even though workout leggings are hot as hell. I’m really surprised you haven’t jumped on the booty shorts train that every seemingly confidently fit girl around here has jumped on! At my gym, it’s almost as if lulu speed shorts never existed, and it’s south florida so rarely do I see leggings or capris. Everyone is all over the spandex booty shorts and crop tops here…and it’s mostly girls who look almost as good as you. I would wear them if i didn’t think I’d be picking front wedgies the whole wod!

  5. Juli,

    Have you tried any good Crossfit boxes in Austin? I’ve had great results from HIIT boot camp workouts & just started doing more lifting, but would really like to try out Crossfit.

    1. yeah i’ve been to a handful but can’t remember all their names. crossfit central is a great one! and i know of crossfit south lamar

  6. I tried this free workout when traveling last week, and holy sh*t those first 2 miles seemed to last forever! Cons of doing mostly strength training I guess 😀
    But I really enjoyed the second part
