Sometimes I have to pinch myself at how lucky I am to live in a city full of fitness opportunities. I remember when I lived in England (and no, I was not in London); I would be so envious of people in big cities like London, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco where there always seemed to be a new and exciting workout studio that opened up.
Luckily for me, moving to and living in San Francisco has been a dream come true in terms of health and fitness. I am so privileged to live in a city that prioritizes healthy eating and active living. It was in this amazing city that I got to try out my first pilates reformer workout, do a TRX circuit workout, and try out vegan Mexican food.
How Personal Training can be affordable!
As much as I love attending group classes, I miss the experience of having a personal trainer who will tailor the experience uniquely to your goals and interests. I used to have a personal trainer and absolutely LOVED it. I reduced my body fat in a short amount of time and had so much fun, but had to stop because it was more money than I could afford long-term. This week, I was lucky enough to try out Vint, a company that connects you to highly skilled athletes to offer you small group and personal training at an affordable price. Yay! Vint is available in San Francisco and the East Bay (Oakland, Alameda, Concord, Danville, Lafayette, Orinda, Pleasant Hill, and Walnut Creek).

I chose to do a boxing session for my first workout. I am completely obsessed with boxing; I used to go quite regularly but again, that got too expensive unfortunately (story of my life) so I was really excited to get back into it. I downloaded the Vint app which showed me a range of workouts I could do around San Francisco. I chose to do a boxing session because a) boxing is amazing and b) there was an option to do a boxing workout at San Francisco State University which is literally 5 minutes drive away from me. So convenient and really nice that those without a gym membership can use Vint. I originally scheduled the workout for Sunday but forgot I already had an event that morning (oops) but luckily, I was able to reschedule the workout easily and quickly using the message feature of the app.
My awesome trainer, Daniel Martinez, got out this ladder to help me get my heart rate up with HIIT before getting into some incredibly exhausting boxing work.
1 Free Month of Vint!
I loved my boxing session! Daniel was really patient with me and pushed me to try harder; I definitely want to do more sessions with him before my free month is up. Speaking of free month, Vint has been kind enough to offer my lovely readers (YOU!) an exclusive opportunity to try Vint free for a month! All you have to do is download their app (can be downloaded by iPhones and Androids) and use the promo code ‘alicerocks‘. Nothing makes me happier than being able to share these amazing opportunities with you and I cannot wait to hear what you think about Vint.
