Rest Stop Workout

Flower Mound TXAlthough park benches and tables are meant for sitting, this routine by BEAUTYLISH is no picnic. You’ll feel the burn within the first minute! Give her a try at your local park or on your next road trip break. 

  • Step Up Back Leg Lift x20 (each leg)
  • Step Up Side Leg Lift x20 (each leg)
  • Incline or Decline Plank Knee Circles x5 (each leg)
  • Incline or Decline Wide Pushups x10
  • Tricep Dips + Leg Kick x20 
  • Goal = 3 rounds! 

And speaking of taking a break on a road trip… check out what our Folkster & dear friend, Ryann Ford, has been up to. For the past 5 years, she has driven all over the country documenting America’s vanishing rest stops.  Her project has turned into something larger than she could ever have imagined, and now it’s time to publish a book! 

She’s launched a Kickstarter to help raise some of the funds needed to bring this book to life.

Folkster ALS Donation & Ice Challenge

We want to send a big thank you to our Shiner Coach, Julie, for nominating us for the ALS #IceBucketChallenge. We accepted her challenge (check out the video) as well as donated to the ALS Association.

This is a great way to spread awareness of this devastating disease and raise funds. We are nominating our other coaches to pay it forward with a donation (click here) and ice bucket dump. The ice bath will feel oh-so-great after a Folk workout and your gift will help provide local services to people with ALS, global research to find a cure and advocacy efforts.

Love you guys,
Kris & Rox

P.S. We would also like to tell our sweet Briana, a Folkster & substitute coach, that we are thinking of you and your family! She sadly lost her father-in-law to this disease. We love you, Bri!
