Last Thursday, I attended the Tone It Up tour here in Nashville. This was a 5 hour fitness event that included the Tone It Up girls and Jillian Michaels. It was outdoors at the Ascend Amphitheater on the waterfront in downtown Nashville.
My sister is a bigger fan of the Tone It Up girls than I am and she is the one that heard about this event. However, I’ve always been a Jillian Michaels fan from the Biggest Loser days so when I heard she was part of the tour, I was ready to sign up!
The event started at 4pm and we got there a few minutes before the gates opened. Once inside, we laid down our yoga mats to claim our spots and then walked around to check out the venue.
They had a booth where you could buy TIU apparel. They also had booths where you could sample some food such as Krave jerky and Kombucha. They had a juice bar booth where you could buy food and drink. They had some cute photo opps and a wall where you could write an intention. They had a massage area where you could get a free massage. They had a beauty bar where you could get your hair braided. And they had beauty supplies by the porta potties so you could freshen up. There was also the VIP area where (if you had VIP tickets) you could meet Jillian and the TIU girls.
The evening started out with a CorePower Yoga session. Then Jillian got onstage to lead a 30 minute HIIT workout. I had to stop to take some pictures and videos because we were working out with Jillian!
Then the TIU girls came onstage for another 30 or so minute workout.
Overall, it was a lot of fun! It ended up being really nice weather for the event and it was fun working out outdoors with a big group. The evening ended around 7:30pm and then everyone (except us, it seemed) lined up to meet the TIU girls in the VIP area. We headed home and got a good night’s sleep!
