SUDAMIX® at Elev8

 Making sure our members can find us - the first time is a little tricky
 Starting off the morning right - water, fruit and protein bars

 It was a full house - and then some!
The energy was amazing. So happy to be a part of this.

Elev8 Training is Open!

The last six months have been a whirlwind of milestones. In the summer, my trainer unexpectedly found himself scrambling to open his own business to continue to push his SUDAMIX® brand. He rented out some space and began building his following as many of his former clients and many new clients followed him to his new location.  Though it was a temporary home, week after week people continued to sign up to be part of his program. I helped him launch and continued to help administratively as well as teaching classes and training others. My role grew and it became clear that we had a great thing here and he would have to find a place of his own if he wanted to continue to grow and expand. 

So here we are, six months later and after much struggle and obstacles we had our first class last weekend. It was certainly a time to celebrate. So with the help of some generous clients, we broke out the bubbly and officially opened the doors to Elev8 Training. The facility is located on Mare Island in an industrial-size space that allows us to do so much with our members and clients. We are both excited to see this grow. I'm so proud of what he has accomplished so far and hope that he continues to succeed in this way. Looking forward to a bright and healthy future.

Holiday Dinner

It's nice during the holiday season to have some time set aside to spend with friends. I have found that as you grow older many friends feel more like family. We've known one another for many years and have seen our own little families grow and our children mature. We've seen one another go through struggles and we've celebrated the beautiful milestones of life. 

I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday season celebrating this most joyous time with both family and friends.

Cheryl's A Fighter

This weekend we helped to support a fellow trainer and friend Cheryl, who is currently battling cervical cancer. She has always been a bright and positive person and we are so glad that she is taking  this seemingly hopeless situation and doing all that she can to fight it. We love you Cheryl and are rooting for you!

Renneeh's 30th Celebration

I had a blast celebrating my friend Renneeh's birthday in the city. We went to AsiaSF, a club and restaurant that I haven't been to since the days when I worked corporate in the city.  It was just as fun and entertaining as ever.

 Getting settled in and ready for some drinks, food and entertainment.
 Meeting up and having a small libation before we head to the city.
 She certainly was the princess that night. Happy birthday my friend!
Always a good time with these fine ladies.

October Babies

We celebrated the October babies over lunch at Buttercup Grill & Bar. Even though we all workout very hard, it's good to remember the sweeter things in life and have some cake, too!

Happy Birthday! Renneeh, Adriana and Jeff

Onesie Party

I honestly don't know who came up with this crazy idea. I just opened up my home for all of us to hang out and chill and somehow we ended up having a game night and everyone in onesies. These ladies are hilarious and super fun to hang out with. We certainly do not take ourselves seriously!

 The sheer amount of variety is astonishing. Who knew they made so many different kinds of onesies?!
 The guys got in on it too. 
 The cookie monster and Ariel. A match made in heaven. 
Onesies got us all kinds of crazy.
