Zella Day of Movement

Hi there. :-)

How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was actually pretty relaxing, & although I’m sad to see it come to an end, I’m anxious to get another week started & be one step closer to summer vacation!

Tonight, I wanted to take some time to share with you all about the event I participated in yesterday – the Zella Day of Movement, which was held at various Nordstrom locations throughout the country. (I attended the event at King of Prussia mall.)

Zella is a brand of fitness/activewear sold at Nordstrom, & this was the second-annual event held by the company & department store.

My sister & I arrived at the mall around 8:45AM; the event was scheduled to begin at 9:00AM. We were greeted by the friendly staff at Nordstrom, & taken to the area where the (free!) fitness class would be held, which was just outside of the department store entrance.

My sister & I were excited to find out that the class would be a cardio barre class. Our instructor for the morning, Christina, owner of Ploome in Philadelphia, chatted with us & other attendees before the class got started.

I had never taken a cardio barre class & man am I feeling it today. It was quite challenging & I really worked up a sweat – more than I was anticipating when I planned to work out in a mall! It was amazing how intense of a workout we got with a folding chair as our only piece of equipment.

For any local readers who are looking to change up their fitness routine, I would highly recommend looking into the various classes available at Ploome. I only wish I lived a bit closer to the city so I could try out another one of Christina’s classes!

After the workout session, we headed up to the activewear department & did a little shopping.

I was very impressed with all the different Zella pieces. (You can do some online shopping for yourself here!)

I had been wanting a “workout skirt” for a while, so I decided I’d make the Zella “Wrapped Up” Running Skirt my “investment” for the day. Trust me, there were tons of other items that caught my eye & I would have loved to add to my wardrobe! While the clothes are a little pricey (coming from someone who loves C9 brand at Target!) I can already tell that the high-quality will be worth the cost.

As a gift for attending the event & spending a minimum of $40 on Zella gear, I was given a free gift – a Zella “Z T 3″ Tee. I was excited to find out that this was the freebie, as I already had my eye on the cute, ruched t-shirt! I tried this on when I got home & deemed it appropriate for the gym or even just casual weekend wear!

I had such a fun time yesterday morning that it almost makes up for how sore I am today! 😉 I got to try out a new type of class & shop for new clothes – a successful Saturday morning in my book!

Have you ever tried a barre-style workout?

What’s your favorite brand of workout clothes? Do you own any Zella items?

    I’m so glad that you had fun. I wish I could have been there!! I just looked up Ploome, and unfortunately it looks like it is a hike from my office in Philly, too. It sounds like a great, fun workout! We will have to plan something soon! :)

    That class sounds like a ton of fun! I wish we would’ve had an actual event here in STL. I would’ve loved to take a free class and gotten one of those cute t’s. I did go to our store and check it the clothes. They are cute and I also see them as an investment.

    Glad you picked up the skirt. It’s adorable!!

    Can’t lie- I don’t even know what kind of a workout that is. Geeze, I feel like such a workout loser now. Ha. Cute gear! Finding perfect workout clothes is tough. Once summer gets here, I will live in my workout clothes for the most part and only wish I could find some to fit the lovely bump.
    YAY for summer being in sight!

      haha you’re not a workout loser! :-) Barre classes are based around ballet! This was a cardio barre class so it was kicked up a notch!

    I love that t-shirt. I’ve actually never heard of Zella (probably because we don’t have any Nordstrom’s by us). I love lululemon, but I wish they were cheaper! Nike dryfit is great too (and more reasonable – especially when shopping at TJ Maxx :)
