What do you get when you mix 40 of LA’s top bloggers with aerial fitness hammocks? Two hours of nonstop, upside down selfies in the cutest athletic apparel.
Last Thursday I had the opportunity to attend a blogger event hosted by AIR Aerial Fitness and organized by Riot Media Group. When I arrived, I was given a top by gwenyth and a pair of leggings by Emily Hsu. Both companies are LA based, which I am so happy to support. The top was a gorgeous shade of light pink with ruching on the side and crisscross straps—it also came with a matching headband. My leggings were from the “not so basic black” line and had a snakeskin look to them. They can be worn high waisted or folded over and are long enough to wear over your heel.
After a quick wardrobe change into the much more fashionable ensemble, I headed outside to the braid bar. The girls from DryBar were amazing and transformed my drab hair into a gorgeous crown braid. After a few spritzes of hairspray I was off to the silks. Everyone was a bit more interested in the pretty pictures than the sweaty lunges, but we did a mixture of both! With the help of Lindsay, AIR Los Angeles owner, I managed to learn a couple new moves. If you’ve never done an aerial class, you’d be shocked at how much upper body strength and flexibility it requires. OUCH! Props to all those aerialists, I applaud you!
Once I had chosen the perfect Instagram picture and filter, I grabbed a salad sampler from Sweetgreen. Their kale caesar is my go-to and I usually make a bold move and add corn when I’m in the restaurant. There’s nothing yummier than the parmesan crisps.
Thank you again to gwenyth, Emily Hsu, AIR, and Riot Media Group for having me!
