triFABB KICKED BUTT at Orangetheory Fitness!

trifabborangetheory

Just wanted to share a little recap of our rather unconventional meetup at Orangetheory Fitness Morrisville today!

This was the first time we’d every done a meetup like this and it was so much fun. The photo above is just some of the members of triFABB who came to the meetup and workout!

If you haven’t heard of Orangetheory Fitness, it’s basically (in summary) a REALLY intense workout that mixes up cardio and strength training but really focuses on customizing the workout to YOUR particular skill level based on your heart rate. You wear a heart rate monitor throughout the workout and you’re able to see on a screen in the room what “zone” you’re in… whether you’re in the cardio zone, the fat burning zone, or the peak zone, etc.

We all agreed it was one of THE most fun, MOST intense, and most challenging workouts we’d ever done.

Lindsay of Poppy Daily even said, “I work out with a trainer 2-3x a week and have for a while and this was, by far, the best workout I’ve ever done.” 

We could not agree more!! It was CRAZY hard and we were all totally SPENT by the time it was over, but we felt awesome.

Our trainer, Danny, had so much energy and really kept us going and motivated through the whole thing.

On a separate side note, members of #triFABB even brought canned foods to the event to help collect canned food for the Foodbank of the Triangle!

It was really an awesome afternoon!

If you’re in the Triangle and looking to really get an intense workout, you should totally check out Orangetheory fitness and tell them triFABB sent you!!

[GUEST POST] Amanda from Eloquent English featuring Apricot Lane

Today’s triFABB Guest Post is from Amanda at Eloquent English. Amanda is an awesome triFABB member who is excited to share her experience with Apricot Lane, a new boutique in the Triangle!

Apricot Lane has finally arrived to the Raleigh area!  The North Hills location opened in early November and I was ecstatic to hear that a few additional locations (Cary, Durham, etc) were opening up in the Triangle!  Apricot Lane has everything from clothes, accessories, purses, jewelry and shoes.  If your looking for a unique and affordable look Apricot Lane is definitely your place to go!
This past weekend I had the opportunity to go to the Cary Town Center grand opening.  I completely fell in love!
Apricot Lane graciously let me pick out two accessories of my choice (the second item will be shown in a later post).  It took me awhile to pick only two items as I had so many amazing options!  So after forty minutes or so of wandering the store, I picked out a pair of small geometric triangle earrings (shown above) as my first choice.  I loved the tarnished silver look and the earrings are very light weight (which I love as I don’t want to have droopy ears when I get old)!  If you can believe it they were only $8!  I know that I will be frequenting these from my jewelry box!
You will also notice that my cape is from Apricot Lane!  I couldn’t go in and not purchase anything, I just couldn’t help myself!
If you haven’t been to Apricot Lane I would suggest going very soon.  You’re going to love it!
