{City Surf} Style du Jour

Most of you, by now, have seen me post quite a bit about City Surf.  Some of my friends and followers have sent me messages asking what exactly City Surf is and why it wasn’t in their city yet!  I wanted to do an informative post for everyone who has been wanting to try it out or for the people who are just curious to be in the know on the latest workout!  I’ve been working out at City Surf Austin for over 2 weeks now and am already seeing results in my body and feeling the improvement in my balance and core strength. It’s amazing.  Let me tell you, I looked like a total fool and felt so out of shape but after a couple of classes I’m KILLING it!!!  Not only is it a blast but it’s an amazing workout, and if you know me, I HATE running and really working out, for that matter!

 

Here is a little background on the company and how these boards work:

City Surf is designed for the active human, building upon components of natural human movement – foundation training, cardiovascular and strength training with high specification to core, stability, balance and body/muscle awareness. The Human body is the single greatest engineered system – meant to function in the true natural way. City Surf’s concept utilizes and captivates the muscles needed to help you get there.

At City Surf we understand you might only get 50-minutes a day to be active and improve your physical well-being. So we want you provide our clients a workout where they can increase stamina, improve form, strength, increase muscle and improve body awareness, mobility and stability all in a fun, entertaining group fitness atmosphere.

There are many different components in each 50 minute class that make it one hell of a workout!

• Interval Training
• Cardio
• Strength
• Core
• Stability Balance
• Flexibility
• Foundation Training
• Body Weight
• Active Recovery
• Agility
• Body Awareness
• Range of Motion
• Music Inspired

You’ve even got your choice of 3 different types of classes if City Surf isn’t for you:

• City Surf – our signature class featuring fun surf inspired movements utilizing surfer specific muscle groups
• Pipeline (Coming soon) – our version of barre classes. Focused on refined muscle movement and utilization. Great for toning and posture.
• Buddha Board – our spin on yoga! A 50-minute vinaysa flow on our surfboards that will take your yoga practice to the next level.

 

We shot 2 different outfits with different types of workouts on these “surf” boards to give you guys an idea of some of the things you will be doing.  Check out the video below to see everyone in action!

{February Ask Ashley} In Print

Every couple of months I get the opportunity to contribute to Austin Woman Magazine with my column, Ask Ashley.  Im sure quite a few of y’all don’t know that I am a full time, freelance wardrobe stylist in Austin and Dallas.  I have been doing editorial styling for Austin Woman Magazine for close to 3 years now and was lucky enough to be offered my own column a little over a year ago. I guess it’s been a huge hit because they asked me to keep contributing this year too!

This month’s Ask Ashley is over transitioning from your work wardrobe to evening/date night attire with a few simple changes and additions.  Check out the article below and if it is too small to read, click HERE for the digital copy of the magazine.  All outfit details and links are below the photos. Enjoy!!

{Throw Back}

I feel like this is a PERFECT post for a Throw Back Thursday!  Not only have I had that Ezekiel shirt since high school, it STILL fits!!!  I have to say, that shirt was like $35 back then and it has been well worth the money!  Most shirts from high school or even college have totally fallen apart or just look like crap, but people, including me, still love this shirt!!

{Bungalow Magazine} In Print

Before the holidays I was asked if DTK Styling would be interested in being featured in the Winter issue of Bungalow Magazine.  Of course, I quickly jumped on that offer with a huge YES!  And I do have to say, the 2 page spread turned out absolutely amazing! I had the opportunity to shoot with a photographer I had been wanting to work with for quite a while, Bill Sallans, and he did such a great job!  I definitely couldn’t have done it without the help of my make-up maven, Lauren Lumsden, either!  She has come to the beauty rescue more times than I can count on one hand.  Below are some of the original shots and then the article itself! Let me know what you all think!!  I am super excited to finally be able to show this off! 🙂
