Earlier this spring, we challenged you to take a 60-day fitness journey with us and we called it Tour To Summer. Together, we followed a calendar of workouts from our POUND Rockout Results System, we hit music-inspired milestones and CRUSHED goals as a community. We cooked from the BALANCE Guide and we tracked our progress, checking in with each other every day on Instagram.

Our lucky winner of a trip for two to California was Marni Hallet aka @thefashionistabarista. Marni stood out to us immediately for a few reasons:

  1. Her smile is infectious — we could tell Marni felt joy when she did POUND which inspires us more than we can say in words.
  2. She became fiercely dedicated. Marni checked in with us every day and truly represented the balanced lifestyle that is POUND. She mixed her rocking workouts with the cutest outfits, balanced her delicious meals with only the best craft beer, and really transformed before our eyes.
  3. Her encouragement of others. Marni embraced the POUND Posse with open arms and commented on fellow tour posts, encouraging and supporting people she’s never met in person but felt connected to along the journey.

We gotta be honest, the race was CLOSE between Marni and another fiercely dedicated member of the POUND Posse, Joyce aka @aflynnfox. When it came to choosing a winner, we had a really hard time deciding between these two ladies. We loved watching a beautiful, supportive friendship grow between them and we knew they were both rooting for the other to win.

When Marni got the news, she was ecstatic! We automatically assumed she’d invite her boyfriend Tom, who we learned is a huge fan of our Overnight Oats (Shoutout Tom!), but Marni brought us to tears when she asked if her +1 could be Joyce.

The girls made their way out to Venice to hang out with us this past weekend with quite an itinerary! They immediately felt like family. It felt like we had known them forever.

We started off Saturday with POUND Class and a trip to the Nike Store! Marni got the cutest leggings and some new purple kicks (her favorite color 😉 ). Joyce got a hoodie and Nike Studio Wraps. (Sending a HUGE thank you to NIKE to giving them the best shopping spree ever!)

The second surprise came when we realized that both girls were interested in attending a POUND Pro Training! Marni and Joyce headed down to El Segundo bright on Sunday morning to go through 8 hours of training with Amber and Holly! From what we heard, they were star students 😉 We can’t wait for you guys to bring POUND back to your homes!

We want to send a HUGE thanks to the POUND community and everyone who Toured with us back in April. You are a constant reminder that this is a community that not only attracts amazing people, but also one that is positive, uplifting and inspirational. If you have a moment, take some time connecting with someone new in the community. Like a few of their photos or send an encouraging note. We’re all connected by the unified BEAT of POUND and that’s something you should be proud of. And hey, you never know when you’ll find your new best friend.
