FITNESSLEASH BECOMES ANDREA GNYS!!!

21207594343_b4e698dffa_c

OH my GOODNESS! Today is honestly like Christmas Mornnningggggg!!!!  After 4+ months of going back and forth with our amazing web designer HILARY,  we have a completely rebranded blog!!! I couldn’t be more thrilled with the way it turned out and I hope you’ll stay and have a look around 🙂

Before going any further – I just want to give a huge shout out to Hilary of course, for doing a stellar job on our page, and for taking my 185372 emails, texts and facebook messages, and making them into something beautiful!!! … We think it’s beautiful, if you’re not a fan,  then you can beat it! 😉

Secondly, my girl Glenny did such an amazing job, not only making us look way better than we actually do… but getting the pups to co operate for some pics as well! You’ll definitely be seeing many of the photos she took throughout, but the ones you see already on the blog (on the home and about pages) are her doing!

Okay… so. Why the rebrand?

Well… Fitnessleash.com was a great start for us. We were just kind of testing things out, just at the beginning of our bootcamps and training, and it was a perfect starting point. We were able to talk about workouts and rescue dogs, which was really all we were hoping to focus on anyway, when we started! As time went on, I found myself wanting to post about other things (more lifestyle focused).  Also,  in the last two years Greg has developed a HUGE passion for craft beer, and homebrewing… so we wanted to find a spot for that too!

ANYWAY – the thought process was, lets change it from being a solely fitness focused blog (although that will still be a huge part of what we post!) and make it more of a lifestyle blog.

This way, Greg will be doing some BEER LOVE posts for the craft drinkin crowd, I can do some posts on clothes (which will help justify my shopping addiction… ha, Sorry babe!), and we can still post about everything in between – like our animals, tea, trips we take etc.

So what does this mean for you?… By visiting this page on a regular basis, you’re going to be able to find:

Workout posts
From what we do in our bootcamp classes each week, to different programs Greg and I are loving (and hating!)

Rescue
Greg and I have 2 dogs and 2 cats, all rescue animals. We will share tons of ways to get involved, animals that need homes, and sometimes you might just get a smattering of photos of our pets — for that, we apologize in advance.

Recipes
Pretty self explanatory, yes? I am really working to expand this section as cooking and trying new recipes something I love doing, but definitely not the best at remembering to take pics and write about it (I like the eating portion too much!)

 

Tea
Anyone that knows me, or really anyone that has spent more than 7 seconds on my Instagram knows that I am a TEA LOVER. I’ve been fortunate enough to work closely with a couple great companies (that you’ll hear all about) and I love to share new finds and flavours as well. Don’t forget about Kombucha! You’ll hear lots about this miracle bevie too!

Life
This is one of the new sections, and really can be about whatever I feel like sharing with you. The main categories would be different challenges we’ve done (workout, cleanses, clean eating etc), Style (again, to feed my shopping addiction and share it with you!), BEERLOVE (Greggie’s section), and of course there’s a section for Under Armour love. The ‘life’ tab will be pretty random and always changing.

Faves
This (ironically) is one of my favourite sections. I am an avid blog reader, and in my opnion one of the best parts is their ‘faves’ section – whether it be other blogs they love, books, style, or something I’m super in to is the ‘Things I’m loving lately’ posts. Totally random things that don’t necessarily go together at all, but just things that person is excited about that week. Super Rad.

(yes my niece and her adorable outfit and FACE is allowed to be one of the things I’m loving lately!!! It’s my blog – I can do what I want!!)

This post is SO much longer than I intended and I apologize for that… but thanks so much for reading, and be sure to check back soon as there are going to be some giveaways coming up over the next couple weeks!

What do you think about the new blog?
