A big thank you to all who attended the July Girls Night Out event at Duffy's Fort Lauderdale! The weather, though humid, was not rainy, allowing us to use the outdoor space of the patio. It was great meeting so many wonderful women that were joining us for the first time and seeing those of you that have joined me at the previous events.
The staff at Duffy's was fantastic - accommodating, helpful and speedy. The happy hour menu is awesome - 2 for 1 on EVERYTHING! The gummy drink is cute and delish! The specialty peppermint drink was perfect for our theme. The first 50 ladies got a Swag Bag, sponsored by Salon Nirvana 954 filled with goodies from local businesses.
It was a pleasure meeting the ladies from HandsOn Broward and seeing how generous our group is. We collected a large number of school supplies for their upcoming Back to School Bach! Read this month's Charity Spotlight blog post if you are looking to learn more about HandsOn Broward.

Body Twenty is the future of fitness: Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS) training is a results driven workout. Body20 is the most effective form of building lean muscles (no bulk ladies!) The Body20 trainers customize each technology driven workout to target your fitness goals, from strength training to fat and cellulite reduction. ONE BODY20 WORKOUT IS EQUIVALENT TO HOURS IN THE GYM.
What is Electro Muscular Stimulation (EMS)?
It is a form of stimulating muscles using light, painless, electric impulses. Just as our central nervous system sends electrical impulses to control our muscle action, EMS replicates this natural process, sending electrical impulses to muscles for the purpose of strength training and fitness.
I had a chance to try it out [see photo below from Instagram} and can say it is one of the best workouts I have ever had and it was short! I felt it immediately (in a good way) and then the next day (in a sore muscle way)! On your first visit, you get a full body assessment - eye opening I must say! Then your progress is tracked closely.
You will have a chance to demo the technology at our July Girl's Night Out Event! So grab your FREE TICKET here if you haven't already for the July 26th event!
A STRONGER, FITTER YOU IN 20 MINUTES A WEEK!
