December at Tandem!

December had us sweating, pressing & tapping through the holidays! From a couple of speciality rides to our Fitmas challenge, we were not short of inspiration in our studio this month!

1. We kicked things off with our Theme Tuesday/Thursday Nights – this month we threw it back with a Boy Bands Detox Ride & then battled it out with our Kanye vs. Jay & Bey Signature 45.

2. Christmas Eve we doubled down with MC for our SLAYYY ride to get you movin’ & groovin’ to some Christmas beats before some (well-deserved) Christmas day loungin’.

3. You guys KILLED IT during our “Fitmas” Challenge with Coastal Core Fitness – we are still collecting Bingo boards but the winner will be announced shortly! If you missed out, be sure to stop by Coastal Core for a FREE first class – we love the combination of our cardio party with their gooooddd burnnnn on the Megaformer!

4. Our LIVE DJ RIDE had everyone PUMPED up for their NYE plans. DJ Za came and dropped some absolutely FIRE beats, while Local Urban Kitchen & Kulture Kombucha helped us refuel for the night with some delicious post ride juice, snacks & kombucha!

Our Favorite #BeautyHacks

We are always looking for new ways to stay fresh after a sweat sesh – here some of our instructors share some of their go-to beauty routines.

KENDALL Z. – I keep a big pack of baby wipes in my gym bag, and immediately wipe my face after class. You’re sweating out bacteria and gunk and if ya don’t get it off quickly it’ll stay and form a pimple. Andddd baby wipes can help you feel clean all over 😳😂🙈! I also keep Dove Dry Spray in my bag so I can freshen up quickly!

AK – My recent obsession is Coconut Oil – twice a week I leave it in my hair overnight, teach in the morning, and then shower (make sure you sleep with a towel down, shower cap on, or an old pillow case as some will transfer onto the pillowcase)! I also LOVE Coastal Salt & Soul’s Blushing Peony scented anything – especially the Blissful Body Butter to help my skin stay moisturized from all the sweating/showering.

CHELSEA K. – My newest go to is Makeup ForeverPRO > BRONZE FUSION– it’s waterproof, so I’m not dripping brown drops during/after class!

KATELYN S. – Post class, I use oil-free makeup remover wipes to remove sweat and left over makeup. I follow up with Mario Badescus Rose Water Spray on the my face and neck to refresh and get skin glowing, then apply Laura Mercier Radiance Primer and my post workout glow is perfect!

MC – I swear by Klorane Dry Shampoo to counter the post-ride ponytail.

ALICIA R. – I am obsessed with Honest Beauty Makeup Remover Wipes post-sweat! I also cannot live without Batiste Dry Shampoo, this Vita Liberata bronzer & this moisturizer by Charlotte Tilbury!

Instructor EATTSSSS

Heading into swimsuit season, we are always looking for delicious & healthy pre and post ride snacks. Here, some of our instructors share their faves:

Katelyn – Honey Balsamic Brussel Sprouts. Super easy & delish – Heat oven to 400 degrees. Cut brussels in halves, toss in salt & pepper, and a little olive oil. Bake for 25 minutes, or until crispy & brown on edges. Toss in 1 Tsp honey, and 1 Tsp balsamic vinegar until coated. I literally eat bowls of them!

MC – Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel English muffin with peanut butter, and a green juice!

AK – Avocado Toast. Super easy & delish! I use 1 or 2 pieces of Ezekiel bread, toast it up,  mash 1 avocado, add garlic salt, pepper, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes & Sriricha – so bomb. trust me.
