Fly with Zico

FlyWithZico-51When I started NW Healthy Mama a year ago, I knew it’d be an exciting journey, but I had no idea how many incredible people I’d meet along the way. Meeting people “from the internet” in real life just isn’t as weird as it used to be. It’s not that I ever set out to make a bunch of friends I met through blogging—it’s that I could tell these people were so awesome, I couldn’t help but become real life friends with them. Gals like Rachel, Andrea, Portia, Carleeh, Bethany, Kelly and Lena are just a few of the inspiring, real and encouraging friends I’ve made along the way. I’ve loved how they support each other, dream big, put action to the things in their hearts and make friendships with other women EASY. 

When Portia recently invited me to an event she hosted with Zico Coconut Water and Flywheel, I was all over it. Group fitness is my jam. I love it. (And Portia is super fun, too) Working out with positive and fun people energizes me. Group fitness makes me want to do my best and whenever we workout, we should always give it our all, because hey- let’s not waste our time.FlyWithZico-38

I’d never done Flywheel before, but from the moment I arrived, I was comfortable and happy. The staff was welcoming and they even gave us these darling tank tops and amazing swag bags. FlyWithZico-02

Together as a group, we did the Fly 45 class…

“Our signature workout. Fly 45 is a 45-minute high-energy, motivating ride that incorporates interval training, races and rhythm riding, an upper-body series and real-time performance tracking with our signature tech-pack and optional TorqBoard participation. The class ends with an effective, calming stretch, leaving you feeling stronger, de-stressed and supercharged.” –


After our class, we enjoyed a delicious and healthy  lunch, provided by Chef Request and incredible green smoothies, made by the Zico team. 

Green Smoothie Recipe:

1 cup Natural ZICO Coconut Water
½ cup frozen mango
½ cup spinach
½ cups ice
½ banana
