How could I resist a blogger event that involved taking a Zumba class? Count Me In! Last month, Degree Women with motionSense invited me out for a VIP fitness focused dance class with one of the nations top Zumba instructors, Shawnee Rioles and I was happy to oblige! Check me out getting my Zumba groove on with the uber sexy Shawnee!
I had such a FAB time getting lost in the fun and playful Zumba moves that I didn’t even feel like I was working out! I also had a chance to test drive Degree’s new anti-perspirant/deodorant with an innovative motionSENSE technology, which contains motion activated micro-capsules that sit on the surface of the skin and once you start to move (not sweat) it activates little bursts of freshness. I tried out the Fresh Energy scent and thought it was pretty cool that as soon as the class started, I smelled fresh and clean and continued to smell pretty darn good for the rest of the night inspite of my sweaty self. I liked it so much that I have been using motionSENSE ever since.
In addition to this super fun Zumba class (which I highly rec trying if you never have because it will make you feel good and totally change your mood!), I got to schmooze with other great bloggers, eat the uber yummy local foodie creations from Forage LA (look at this gorgeous seasonal fruit salad)
In celebration of the launch of Degree Women with motionSENSE, Degree also recently launched a fun and motivating Facebook application and contest called Get into the Move which rewards women for being active and healthy. Basically, you are able to earn motionMILES for completing movement based activities (like yoga, Zumba or even running errands!) and then you can redeem this virtual currency towards chances to win thousands of prizes. Sounds pretty cool, right?
It’s really simple and FREE to join in this healthy fun! All that you need to do is go to the Degree Women Get into the Move application on Facebook or on your mobile device go HERE, and sign up to start earning motionMILES with the Romy Raves special code GetMoving057. Then each time you do something active, you log in your activity on the app and that’s it (plus you will feel like you accomplished something and hopefully win great prizes too!) This program ends August 23, 2011. Girl, what are you waiting for? Get Into the Move NOW! Oh and if I get the most people to sign up using my special code, not only will you show your love for my Blog, but I just might win a spa trip to Sedona! So tell your friends to sign up with the special RR code too!
Disclosure: Degree invited me to participate this Zumba class, provided car service, dinner and goodie bags but the fun, sweat, lack of coordination and opinions are my very own.
