Day 2: Sweating it Out & Cooling it Down
After breakfast our day was packed with fitness and fun!
9am: We had a tennis clinic with the Ranch’s tennis pro, Manuel, who taught us the best practices for forehand and backhand swings!
10am: TRX Combo class was next. This is a fun and fast-paced circuit-style class with a set of stations – you’ll do 50% TRX and then 50% other moves such as mountain climbers, lunges, steps, and sit-ups… sweating yet?
11am: We cooled it down a bit with a yoga level 2 class with Mia and then headed to the First Timers’ lunch at noon where we met with other first-time visitors to Rancho La Puerta – a group that ranged in age from 30-70 and came from a variety of different cities!
2pm: Following lunch it was time for Cardio Drumming (Pictured! Check out our Instagram for a fun video!) This exciting cardio workout uses fitballs, drumsticks, and high-energy drumming beats and choreography!
3pm: Time to cool-it-down again with Crystal Sound Healing – SO relaxing! Crystal bowls emit pure sound waves and vibrations that resonate throughout the body’s tissue and organs which affect brain wave activity. This causes us to release powerful neurohormones that suppress pain, heighten the immune system, and produce deep relaxation!
The rest of the afternoon and evening included a 90-minute custom massage which utilized deep-tissue work to help work down our muscles and get us ready for the next days’ vigorous activity and another fabulous dinner!
